    I once got a small bag of chips out of a vending machine and it literally had 4 potato chips in it.

    You might not think it was useless if they were reduced to crumbs before you bought them :)

    Yup! Though to be fair, with flavored chips, the air is usually the best part.

    Ah yes, I used to know someone like that. If you told him that you'd been on holiday to Tenerife, he'd have been to Elevenerife.

    People are relying on this so heavily now, when anyone expresses dislike, that it has become a pat answer that is intellectually lazy.

    Gwyneth Paltrow aggravated me briefly about a week ago for approximately fifteen minutes. Otherwise very little does, and when it does does it isn't for very long.

    Insurance companies that send policy renewal documents showing a 30% increase in premium, despite having maximum no claims bonus and no change to circumstances.

    But as annoying as that is, the thing that really aggravates me is when I phone them up to query the increase and give the name of an insurer that can renew at the same price as last year, then it's always 'just a moment, I'll talk to my manager and see if we can apply more discounts'. Then surprise, surprise, they can match last year's price after all! They just bank on existing customers being too busy to notice the two week cancellation window timebomb ticking away.

    This has happened to me twice in the last month - with car and home buildings / contents. Standing my ground saved me nearly £100 in attempted premium hikes.

    I don’t know if I just missed this one, but it’s 7 am here, and I am being reminded of it, loudly, from the street outside:

    Car alarms. Has a car theft ever been prevented by one? They have been crying wolf for so many years, nobody pays attention; if I were stealing a car, and someone saw me, I would just look sheepish and pretend to fiddle with a fob. Witnesses would roll their eyes, call me an idiot, and go about their business.

    OK, it’s stopped now. Until next time.

    We normally bought the 5 cent bags of chips, and these were a fair deal. But then one day, I noticed they had a 10 cent bag, and so I just had to give it a try.

    One chip. A very large one, I admit, but just one chip. We're talking Lay's chips, yeah. I was so dumb - I should've noticed that the bag/contents' mass was a bit less than the nickel bag. But I was excited.

    I try to console myself, that some person at the chip plant must've laughed for 10 minutes when he made that happen. That might've been the high point of his entire life.
