Infuriating Things Your Partner Does

To be fair, although Vale of Leven refers to the whole area, locally, when people say "the vale" it almost always means Alexandria, or even Alexandria town centre. If you say to someone you'll meet them in the Vale it means alexandria. People rarely say the Vale of leven even to refer to the whole area or where they're from. It will be Bonhill, Balloch, Renton, alexandria/the Vale etc.

My original question which led to all this madness was "why do people call Alexandria the Vale?"

Oban has a Paisley Postcode! We can't take any useful geographical info from them.

I thought everybody knew this, apparently my 50 year old boss didn't and thinks anywhere with a G post code is Glasgow. 
'G' maybe stands for 'Geriatric'.

It’s The Renton.

And The Haldane.

But just plain Balloch, Bonhill and Jamestown (or Jimston, if you're local).

Makes multiple Asos/booho orders with multiple items, multiple times a week. A new delivery literally 2 or 3 times a week. Complains about some aspect or other every single time. 

Popular complaints: "delivery is late, delivery is incomplete, it looked better photoshopped on the skinny model, they've only refunded 6 of the 13 items I've sent back." 

Just stop ordering cheap shite you dont need 11 times a month and guess what? We wouldn't have these fucking problems.

I noticed a Pie and Bovril user post on Twitter the other day about Rangers fans trashing the city and him being a proud glaswegian. He's born and bred in East Dunbartonshire, specifically Bishopbriggs. Ripped my knitting so it did. But he's a thistle fan and famous VL so it's no surprise.

Get them named.

I hate seeing folk claiming they live in Glasgow when they are from North Lanarkshire.

I was discussing the various things that were opening up in West Dunbartonshire to my boss yesterday and he said "How is all that stuff opening up when Glasgow is still in level 3?", when I informed him that West Dunbartonshire was not part of Glasgow his reply was "How? It's got a G post code". 

It would appear nobody in Scotland actually knows where the f**k they're from. 

The previous caterer we had at the golf club asked which Council we came under for funding etc. The committee member he asked told him to check the bins and that’d give him his answer. He came back 5 mins later asking what council did Biffa come under….
