On the news yesterday, a lady has been told she can't have the Ukrainian she has offered refuge to because she doesn't have a stair rail. Don't know whether to laugh or cry at the state we have become.
That was always going to happen, when they offered money to take people in.
I’ve got a nice office here that someone could have but I know some jobsworth won’t allow it, because it hasn’t got an EPC

No end of issues with Carrs bills here, it takes longer to sort out that one batch of invoices than all the rest combined :(

The best one was when I ordered a tonne of Calf champion starter mix and got a bill for £15k for it! They’d billed 40 bags at the tonne price each.
I did buy a 3 boxes of 10 galv gate hinges recently and get charged for just 3.
From (ahem) a local supplier. ;)

Same here. I have told them that from now on I am going to bill them for my time sorting their invoices and that I refuse to pay until they have reimbursed me for my time sorting out their acounting issues! I have a very good rep that I work with, otherwise I'd be gone!!

Sounds familiar! Our rep, and the man above him are VERY good. The accounts side lets the whole lot down.
 
Minus the sneaky damn credit charges and they lay it out in such a fashion that you have to double or triple check your paying the amount WITHOUT it :mad:
That's very true, the VAT isn't added up either. They have opened a lot of new depots recently so maybe taken their eye off the ball.

Anybody else been told you need to pay for fertilizer up front. I phoned about some last week and that's what they said. My account is up to date and I've bought a lot off them in recent years.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
