Ah yes that could make a difference the blue tooth hearing aid, which I had no idea existed either.

The random things you can learn in a day without even trying.

I never answer the phone. If it’s important they can leave a message.

It’s great…can do all sorts of manipulations with it from my phone.

I was expecting a call sometime in the next few days…didn’t want to miss it.

Yes, I can see that would be annoying; you can hear the TV but not see the screen.

Maybe have glass flooring installed, then you could see it.

Just don't throw stones.

I don't answer the front door if I don't fancy it either. That's what peep holes are for.

See a guy flogging water bottles when we already have our dispenser and stuff set up? Nah, just leave it. One day he wouldn't go though, kept knocking because he could hear the TV I assume.
Eventually answered and said, very politely that I'd like him to stop bothering me. He genuinely didn't understand why I wouldn't answer the front door if someone knocked.

Follow him home and keep knocking on his door. See how he likes it.

Same thing with people throwing their garbage newspapers into the driveway.

Ditto.

If it's someone I know, my phone will know that. I haven't got a phone just so that commercial interests can reach me any time they like. My phone is for me, not them.

I'm all for bullying young Indian lads mercilessly, it's actually part of my job description, but this one just had such a confused, blank stare that it almost stopped being fun.

How about a rear or side door?

I do open the door normally. I quite enjoy the satisfaction of immediately closing it.

It's my polite version of this

If an Indian lad flogging giant water bottles for the cooler can get 20+ storeys up to my only other door (the balcony) then I'll damn well answer it and be more polite.

But if the lazy bastard is just using the lift and bell? Nah.

Internet security is getting so secure I can't even access my email.

Security Check Failed Please Clear Your Browser Cache And Try Again.

If only the suggestion actually worked.

Lately been having trouble with just about every website that uses googles captcha, no idea why though.

Almost to the point, I just want to throw in the towel with computers, if only phones could fully replace pc's, its stupid that this wont work on the PC, but phone on the same exact wifi works fine.

I tried clearing cache, cookies, tried a different browser, restart the computer, scanned for malware and viruses nothing, everything seems fine, and only a problem where google captcha is involved.
