I had to get a refund for a clipper set recently.

I didn't get the clippers, I got earrings, at least that is what it said on the packet. When I opened it to taker photos, the earrings were not in there.

Instead I received a little sticky label with a picture of a parrot on it.
You selling it?

I briefly worked on a weighbridge at a tip. One of the guys was on an 8 tin a night booze habit.

Did you ever try weighing him on the weighbridge?

I never specifically asked them.

We sometimes had to bollock the bin men for jumping out of the van on the weigh in and staying in for the tare off (our system could use stored tares but the council contract insisted on tare off each time).

Well, you gotta be careful what you wish for

overexcited

He was gently called out about sinophobia in a time when it's a massive problem. Sit down.

Then it comes down to differing ideas about what's sinophobic, my bad.

So many cunts on youtube seem to have made a living buying cheap shit on Wish and cynically reviewing it not working.

"hur hur this $10 drone is terrible in even a mild breeze and the onboard camera is terrible too!"

Just monetising the consumerism of crap that's going straight into landfill, they might as well be reviewing things you find in christmas crackers.

Did we ever have an Ashens thread on here?

Not sure. I posted a link of him in some other herberts video as an example of pretty lazy content not too dissimilar to wish reviews really, they were revieweing putting weird stuff in a microwave toasty press in a promotional way and Barry jokingly replied with 'tw video has fucking ashens in it', so I assume he's well known in the gaming subs.

I mentioned before but both him and Tom Scott (who I have no real dislike of) are like spilt glitter in your recommendations, you think you've got rid of them but you keep finding the odd bit forever.
