Re: Why do Mallorcans think they can push-in queues?

Re: Why do Mallorcans think they can push-in queues?

Hmm, some very varied experiences by people. Sometimes I wonder if I'm being too intolerant and should just chill out a bit, but other times I get really annoyed that others are so rude and have...

Re: Why do Mallorcans think they can push-in queues?

Yeah, I'm more than happy to wave a single purchaser through in front of me, in fact I do that quite often at the supermarket/ Lidl's etc. But this is different, it's the arrogance of the locals...

Re: Who knows about Spanish Tv's?

Thanks Fred, some good points (especially cost!) But I need to get a bigger TV anyway, this just kills two birds with one stone.

Re: Who knows about Spanish Tv's?

Thank you all for your suggestions, I was really looking to simplify things, that's why a smart TV seemed a good option. I already have computers and Freesat boxes etc, but it's not straightforward...

Re: Who knows about Spanish Tv's?

Yeah, some interesting replies, thank you. I did think that maybe local apps were installed during setup, they are 'Smart Tv's after all. I will do some Googling and see if some manufacturers are...

Re: fuengirola and the plague of LOOKIE-LOOKIE

What's more frustrating is the fact that they are not allowed to sell fake items (or any items come to that) yet the authorities seem to do little about it. It did make me laugh the other day when I...

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

Are you referring to UK tax? I pay 'imputed income tax' in Mallorca in the form of non-resident tax every year. However, when I queried the letter I had with my solicitor, she said that I do not have...

Re: Mallorca, Can Pastilla - Any recommended garages?

Hey Tweedpipe, sorry, I must have missed your reply. The car is unfortunately old, with high mileage, so any interest the manufacturer has in the vehicle has long since passed. Anyhow, the issue...

Re: Mallorca, Can Pastilla - Any recommended garages?
