I did hear that, doesnt change the fact that you wouldnt have to if you actually lived and contributed to the country you would die for.

Listen fella., I contribute plenty. Over here. Do have any idea how many Canadians have gone on holiday to Scotland after sitting and having a session with BR 1314? Loads.

It's not derogatory...

In practice, "separatist" and "sovereignist" are terms used to describe individuals wanting the province of Quebec to separate from Canada to become a country of its own.

If you want to 'separate' then you're a 'separatist'.

(No point in making an issue when there isn't one.)

Fair enough. It's used as a derogatory name here but appreciate you know terminology better there.

Sooooooooo. Elgin St in Ottawa is to be closed for an entire year as the Watermain and sewer pipe has to be replaced, it's 100 years old. Closure started yesterday. There were multiple signage and closure details, detours, and what not. All were in French and English but 1. Guess what? People calling in and complaining that "1" fucking sign was not in English and French. One other sign had an "I" before "e" and was also complained about. Are you kidding me? This is the shit that does my head in. Not "1" bilingual sign in Gatineau, that's ok though, but "1" sign on Elgin St is not bilingual, and the shit hits the fan. Unbelievable.....

At least she is moaning at the right folk. Ramy comes on here and moans like fuk at us aboot something most of us didn't even know about until a couple of days ago. It's almost like he wants the TAMB to sort it out for him? I don't know about you but I've got very little influence over signage in North America.

It's maybe got more to do with how much she values her kit kat?

She would be quicker and a lot cheaper just nipping into Lidl and buying a packet of them. I'm just taking a wild guess here, but she sounds like the type that will spend a fortune on them daft vending machines then moan like fuk about not having enough money left at the end of the month?

Think you misunderstood what I meant by posting this. I was just merely pointing out how pathetic some people can be. Pointing out how touchy the French can be over one little mistake. Nobody can fix this problem mate, not the TAMB, nobody. It's the government of Canada spoiling the province of Quebec for decades that whatever they want they get, no matter how big or small.. Imagine calling your council because of a spelling mistake on 1 road sign when the entire rest of the city is bilingual. Anyhoo. Have a lovely day Tambers,

I was taught them in first year French.

I'm sure you had that, too.

It's easy.

Start with Monday (which is really 'Moon Day').

The French say 'Lune' (for moon) as in 'lunar' or 'lunatic'.

loon-dee (Lundi) is Monday.

OK... You do the next one...:)

Like it Scotty:lol:

That exampleis only the tip of the iceberg. I could dedicate a 10 pagethread to herlist of complaints, they are so ridiculous it is actually funny. But she is my friend as well a colleague and is a kind person when she isnt spending her time moaning.

She eventually got the company that maintains the machine.They emailed her today and told her to go down to the 5th floor of the building we are inwhere they have a cafe , and they would replace the kitkat.We are on the 7th floor

She spent all that time on a kitkat that cost 85p but has bought sofas on 3 different occasions from those wee magazines you get in the junk mail , and has had to give them all away free after a few weeksas they weren't comfortable and no-one would buy them.

Nothing wrong with complaining.

I'm an expert complainer. My latest one was the new watership down, which is shite.

... any decent causes?

Not a pure moan, but I was corresponding/complaining to Heinz about them not taking up my suggestion to market beanaroni. They were confident that their r&d was superior to mine.
