I spent £72.46 (saving £1.50) on fuel, £2.16 on a coffee. In return, I received a “free” reusable cup made from bamboo (I actually quite like it) and the privilege of carrying around a full tank of fuel, which will ultimately use up more fuel due to the extra weight.
Proof that vouchers always end up costing something 😂
I get sent vouchers to use at Shell fuel stations but they usually expire before I can use them.
I currently had 2 active vouchers; one for £0.03 off per litre of fuel and one for a free reusable cup if I buy a Costa coffee.
Wanting something for nothing, I drove past my nearest BP fuel station to go to Shell, filled my tank all the way up and spent £2.16 on a coffee.
I usually only stick £40 of fuel into the car at a time and never buy coffee.
@matt Did many other people join your instance using the cards you left dotted around? Did you consider using NFC tags?
I want to get some friends and family onto the fediverse (via Blimey Social, obviously) but it takes some getting used to.
Personally, I think the different feeds are very logical and the mute/block features make it easy to ignore anything you don’t want to see.
The only problem is that people get stuck in their ways and don’t want to move away from the “safe” services. That begs the question, how did everyone start using Twitter and Facebook in the first place?
“On call” today (since 05:30) and for the first time ever, there’s absolutely no chance of being called in because no trains are running 😁
Why is leaving the Google and Apple mobile ecosystem a thing?
Because, even if you opt out of whatever the OS offers, you are still leaking data to them at an unacceptable rate.
@Tutanota Why can’t there be a setting that remembers to accept images from a specific sender, or at least which doesn’t make you have to click on ‘view images’ each time you come out of an email.
Me and my family all switched over to Tuta and this missing feature really sticks in our throats.
@Matt is watching School of Rock (I’ve never watched it because I can’t stand Jack Black).
I’m only half-listening to it, but it’s a good reminder of why I can’t stand Jack Black.
I was supposed to be early spare at work tomorrow (05:30) and one other person is the late spare. Everyone else rostered to work tomorrow is “on call”, because we don’t have any trains running from our depot due to widespread engineering works.
I had a chat with our resource manager and asked if I could be “on call” too, seeing as I’ll be of no use to the northern part of the network (there’s 4 depots on the northern part of the network).
I’m now “on call” tomorrow 😬
