Shop assistants with the mathematical knowledge of a toddler!
I was in a jewellery shop the other day buying a present (a pair of earrings) which cost £35. The assistant offered to box and wrap them for £3. I agreed.
She took out a calculator to add £35 + £3 !!!
I kid you not!
Look on the bright side, mate - had that been in Wednesbury she wouldn't have known how to use the calculator.
Here's a thing that really pees me off, and it happened this morning. Door-bell rings. Bloke standing there holding a clipboard and a wodge of leaflets. First thing he says: "Now I'm not selling anything!"

I've got no delusions about my attractiveness. I've often been described as being the unacceptable face of faces.
You would think I would try for the blind, or visually challenged in PC language.
A blind girl did 'read' my face once. Afterwards she had herself tested for dyslexia.
So I would appreciate female shop assistants not calling me darlin' or swee'art. I'm neither and not remotely likely to be.
