My mother did that in a moment of madness/desperation with her washing machine, when she couldn’t afford washing powder.

Those bubbles just do not stop appearing, do they?

I think you need to add a ‘but yay’ in that you’ve got a sparkly clean floor now :D

Why?

Many many years ago when I used to work at Tandy in the Merry Hill shopping centre, there was a fountain in the mall.
On the last day of term some kids chucked a load of bubble bath in there. That was entertaining.

I wondered if there would be a bubble killer. Had to go out though so I just added time and that worked too.
In a daring act of stupidity I did it again, but with way less dish soap and it worked ok this time. I'll stop doing it at some point I promise.

There is a bubble killer. They have it at theme parks to stop/rectify log flumes foaming up if someone empties babble bath into them.

Or do you mean in the house?

Some scamps did that to the big fountain on the roundabout in New Malden. Rumour has it they used over 30 litres of bubble bath, and that it made the local radio (Radio Jackie) news segment. It was big.....

I have $55 in an old eTrade account. It's linked to a work email address that I no longer have access to ( and I'm not sure the company really even exists anymore ), but they do have my postal address so they keep on sending me quarterly statements. Even if I get in, I think the transfer fee is going to be about half that. It's going to be a whole load of faff to get 20 quid out of it, but i hate the idea of them having my money!

I went into an office for the first time in just under a year today.
"Aha!" I thought, "I can take this opportunity to get some documents printed."
Naturally, the first printer I approached tried to print the first page and jammed. It was like I'd never been away.

Apps and websites that won’t let you ‘see’ your password as you type it in.

Yes NOW I am looking at you. After 3 attempts as I could not see where I was making a mistake.

Right-click the password box, click “Inspect Element”

In the code that appears look for the highlighted bit and change type=“password” to type=“text”

Raised my eyebrows slightly at the PSCO (as he got the driver to move the car that had been parked on the dropped kerb over my driveway for the past two and a half hours) when he said he was "Not going to write a ticket as it will get challenged in court".

Aldi and Lidl have stopped selling Decaf ground coffee. Which is a minor niggle, as I like the odd cup of decaff. :(

I go on about delegation and empowerment of individuals the whole time at work but that PCSO can GTFO with making themselves a judge!

It cost me £150. ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY QUID!!

Having not had a hair cut since Feb last year, I was definitely glad to get it cut and some colour on it.

I think there may have been some misunderstanding on what I want which I'm happy to take responsibility for. But FOUR AND A HALF HOURS for a cut and colour. Just, no.

Photos are before, during and after in that order. :facepalm:

I long for a haircut but my current barber turned half his shop into a veg shop and is turning the other half into a florist.

Between my twin hatred of queuing at the barbers and training new barbers I'm trying to ignore it until we've got this run of school holidays, bank holidays and stourporters getting back on the piss out of the way.

It feels like it was too long ago to be Beex, but the site has been around for a while I guess.
