    You weren't saying "one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine" so why say "two thousand and thirteen".

    Obvious reply was "I was saying one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine" I would have thought

    Getting knocked back from a part time job because you don't have a car

    If I turn up on time and do my job properly, why do you GAF how I get to and from your esteemed carbon-hostile business? Not like I'm delivering pizzas or being a courier.

    FTR, I needed the job to help pay for driving lessons.

    Can definitely understand if it's a casual job as they may want you available at shorter notice sometimes than public transport would allow, but it does seem a bit stiff if it's a part-time job. Oh well, their loss for ignoring potentially the best candidate based on something irrelevant really; may their competition get one up on them.

    Long double barrelled last names grind my gears. Some of you will have double barrelled last names and may think they are great so this is just my view only. My nephew apparently wants his mothers surname name now added to his surname - and his Dad's surname is already long. Signing his name is going to be a real chore - I told his Dad to put his foot down on the grounds that his son's email address alone will be a real effort for people to type out. I blame my sister for this influence. I am all for equal rights between men and women but I just think it is impractical and awkward to name the baby's last name after both parents.

    This is my view. I welcome the perspective of someone who has lived with a long db last name.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
