You state "by email" because you're obviously working and can't take calls about other employment opportunities - yet they STILL ring you! And they leave a message asking you to ring them back during office hours! Now it's not so much the fact that they ring, it's the fact they've asked for contact preferences and then simply ignore it!!

Random annoyance : People playing crazy games with their new toy ... http://www.voitureelectrique.net/wp-con ... -Twizy.jpg
Since a few days, on the way back home after work, a mad guy who play with his new toy, at max speed in the street, zigzag between the cars...
You see it left in your rear view mirror, and in a fraction of a second, he is on your right side with a very very silent machine taking high risk for him and for you, and for people crossing the street.
Twice now, i had to swerve to avoid him.
Hope there won't be too much of this kind of toys in the street...

You're not dyslexic, you live in UK, and drive left !
.Jousting knights with their lances under their right arm naturally passed on each other's right, and if you passed a stranger on the road you walked on the left to ensure that your protective sword arm was between yourself and him.
Revolutionary France, however, overturned this practice as part of its sweeping social rethink. A change was carried out all over continental Europe by Napoleon.The reason it changed under Napoleon was because he was left handed his armies had to march on the right so he could keep his sword arm between him and any opponent.
From then on, any part of the world which was at some time part of the British Empire was thus left hand and any part colonised by the French was right hand

Bloody right! And why is it that Waitrose seem to be the only supermarket that sells plastic containers of food where you can actually pull off the cellophane "lid" in one piece without it tearing or splitting - or that little elevated corner tab thing detaching itself from the rest!!!
