I think the downgrading of A level results for students is piss poorian.
I live in Stoke-on-Trent and my daughter has had her results slashed. Fortunately she has managed to get into a different university. Some of her mates can't do the courses they planned to. Messing with people's futures.
An old woman with a dog who (because I smiled to be polite as we made eye contact) decided to walk over to my car and tell the dog to say hello - subsequently the large dog jumped up putting both paws on my drivers door then dragged them down causing 2 sets of scratches which clearly will not polish fully out (black car).
No real recourse as the lovely lady clearly had some mild learning difficulties so there was no way i could really address it without liking like an absolute **** as she kept smiling and still talking to me about the dog as I was raging and crying internally!
Worse things are happening in the world so keep it in perspective.
Also burying a human AND a big dog was not possible before my kids finished football training
Phoned the paint shop to find out how progress on my is going, only to be told it hasn’t been touched in 3 weeks
Guy says his mum died 3 weeks ago and has been too busy and says he won’t get it done this year FML!
FFS, a 2 min phone call is all I wanted
