Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

I usually do my sitting in at the Gulnar based on it being walking distance and a pitstop before and after at the Station. The Sanam is a better Indian though.

Not IMO either, its just the way it is.

It's as good an Indian as you will find anywhere.

Not petty at all:  Got stung by 9p per litre by going to the Shell garage by the Dundee Kingsway rather than going to the BP garage at Invergowrie. 

188.9 Vs 179.9p.  Seething.

Morrisons 500m before you get to Shell is consistently 9-10p cheaper. As is the Jet on the way back out of Dundee. f**k knows why anyone uses that Shell garage.

Company fuel card users maybe.  When I had one I could only use it at BP garages.

Not much use at that Shell garage Hedgecutter was on about, then.

Delivery drivers who don't deliver.

I ordered a pizza yesterday, which was due to arrive at six o'clock. It didn't, even though the website said it had. I gave it another ten minutes then got in touch with UberEats, who said they would look into it. They also asked me to check my front door in case it had been left there. It wasn't, and I knew it was unlikely to be since the guy would have had to buzz the intercom to get into my stair. UberEats then came back with this:

I’ve checked the issue from our end and it looks like the delivery partner hasn’t followed our delivery guidelines. We have processes in place to review this type of feedback with delivery partners, so your concern hasn’t gone unnoticed.

That first bit was certainly true, as I found out.

They gave me a full refund. At half past eight I took a rubbish bag down to the communal bin and found the pizza lying in the street, next to the stair door. The lazy bugger had just left it there and fucked off without even bothering to buzz the intercom. Fortunately I hadn't left a tip in advance as I often do.

Full refund and free breakfast, not seeing the complaint here.

This. 

I can only use mines at Shell, Esso or Gleamer.

The last has never been in Dundee AFAIK and I've no idea where Esso is (if any).
