    NCT... Again.... booked today, earliest slot... 7th June 2023.... now this is taken from their customer charter line 5.

    We aim to ensure that the average lead time for an appointment at an individual NCT centre is less than or equal to 15 days. You will be provided with a test, free of charge, where an appointment cannot be offered within a 28 day period, unless any of the following apply:

    Have we covered airport security queues and (a) elderly people (b) women with all sorts of liquids liberally spread throughout their belongings (c) people with studs and various types of body rings and (d) generally people who think about this for the first time as they place their bag(s) in a tray.

    There are a couple of things that really show up people’s cognitive abilities. One is parking. Another is using self service checkouts.

    What used to wreck my head when the boys were small is parking in those spaces which I was entitled to do so in a loud two door car got me attacked by women on a couple of occasions saying “it’s for mothers and baby’s only” even though I was taking my child out of the car.

    Putting them beside the disabled spaces right up front just means that they are almost always taken by lazy people who don't have child/booster seats in their car.
    People who park in them and then 2 kids or teens hop out can burn in hell for all eternity. In my eyes if you're lugging a baby seat out then fair enough. If not it's back to the pile with the rest

    My gym is up two flights of stairs, the amount of people I see parking right outside in the parent and child spaces and then getting the lift up to the gym. FFS

    But the Prius is not an estate and the Octavia doesn’t have large battery pack to lug around... a cousin and uncle are taxi drivers and have Octavia, one is an estate so they are out there.

    True, you can buy I think a standard taxi should be capable of taking two people and their luggage. If I had the rest of the muppets in tow I'd have ordered a truck.

    Had a rant on Google review about the upgraded food place after US immigration. Beyond useless.

    Guess I'm old and grumpy now but I just think simple stuff should stay simple and work.

    While I agree and the standards are very low, you can select a more premium taxi in the apps to avoid this problem...
