Internet trolls can be very cruel

Snide remarks are just like playground name-calling

Can someone invent a debit card machine for use in restaurants that doesn’t leave an awkward five-second pause before anyone’s card is accepted?

It’s only restaurants and bars where they seem to have these ‘awkward pause’ machines, and it’s really stressful having to wait those few seconds and thinking that you might have to do a runner out of the door.

They used to tell us paying by card would be quicker than paying by cash, but there’s as much paper changing hands now as ever because of these stupid vouchers

n Is anyone else getting fed up with the amount of vouchers that cashiers have started giving you at the supermarket checkout?

It’s bad enough when you’re stuck behind another customer handing in loads of money-off vouchers to get a reduction on their bill.

But now you have to wait for what seems like ages for the till to print out loads of money-off vouchers and bonus loyalty card point slips.

They used to tell us paying by card would be quicker than paying by cash, but there’s as much paper changing hands now as ever because of these stupid vouchers.

Can we not get some vouchers printed that we can hand in which entitles us to not receive any vouchers back from the cashier?

It would save an awful lot of hassle.

n When you put on a button-up cardigan or a tracksuit top, you put the first arm through the arm hole and drape the cardi over your back in preparation to put your second arm through.

But then you find the second arm of the cardi is inside out.

It takes you a good 10 seconds to realise this, so you kind of jump around in an effort to find the arm-hole which isn’t actually there, before you realise the arm is inside out and you have to take the whole thing off to start again.

Does anyone else get annoyed by this, or does it only happen to me?
