Why?

Just another thread to 'vent our spleens'  for those things that simply irritate us for no good reason Cheesy
To start, why do so many receptionists, etc, ask for our names before transferring us through but never actualy pass that information so we have to announce ourselves again?

Re: Why?

I always make a point of telling the person who asks again to go back to the first person who transferred me to get all the information I've already given - adding that I'm happy to wait a moment while they do that.  Crazy

Probably to check who they are speaking with for security reasons and maybe they don't get straight through to their colleague.

Re: Why?

No, they're just lazy, the same as the people who put the lavatory tissue (bog roll) in the holder with the end hanging at the back instead of the front!

Re: Why?

This makes me incredibly mad. How can you grab some if it's facing/touching the wall. Also, leaving the toothpaste lid off.

Re: Why?

The simple solution to both of the above problems is have your own tube of toothpaste and put the bog roll on yourself. Problem Solved !! Smiley
The thing that irritates me is someone who fill a cup of tea or coffee up to the brim and then proceeds to spill some on the floor as they carry it off !

Having your own tube of toothpaste doesn't stop it being used by someone else Wink

I can put the bog roll on myself, but someone will just flip it back and then I'll flip it.
