Hermes are really bad. I'm gonna guess their couriers have to deliver x number of parcels a day and aren't paid for working hours but deliveries, so that's why you end up with them just claiming you weren't in if they're running late due to traffic or whatever. no one wants to be making below min wage.

They pay an average of 75p per parcel according to this post on Glassdoor. I have heard stories of as low as 40p where there's a lot of drivers.

how the gently caress are you supposed to make any money with that? wtf. Deliveroo is poo poo sometimes but you can go out and make 20 an hour on a weekend evening reliably

You deliver big stacks of parcels to the front desk of big buildings (office or fancy residential) and leave them all there without having to go to individuals. It's designed for big urban centres and b2b because that's where postal services make financial sense.

It wasn’t until I moved to the US that I found out chorizo can take different forms. The stuff we get here the most works great with eggs, so it’s all good for sure. All chorizo is good chorizo.

In my tapas place we used to do chorizo topped with morcilla and a fried egg, was lush with a side patatas bravos

That sounds pretty drat good. Man, I miss the patatas bravas. Every restaurant should be legally forced to serve them.

I've never read this thread. I've been to the UK though.

Sydney > Hong Kong > Heathrow. Long flight. Although I did get to fly over the Gobi Desert and the Himalayas in a window seat (Business Class).

Went to Oxford, where the pubs were loving closed on a sunday morning.

Did the poo poo I had to do in Reading.

Was tripped out by the weak dim bulb that passes for the Sun in november. (no heat)

Met up with my friend and did a pub crawl in London. Stayed at the Mayfair Intercontinental.

So much loving litter everywhere.

I remember visiting an American mall and being super confused when I went in to a big shop and it was like entirely for children clothes. After looking for the adult section we realised there wasn't one so we had to pretend we'd entered there to buy clothes for a relative before quickly leaving

in 2021 i was one of the few survivors of the fire storms and subsequent famine/drought

I didn't survive out of strength, but luck, as I was rummaging through a ditch for a tenner I had spotted which would have brought me a single mars bar in the post-brexit markets. That ditch saved my life

I'm tempted to go back to my local when it reopens next week because they've got Empire Strikes Back and Flash Gordon, but my experiences at supermarkets and the pub have lead me to believe it'll be a bit of a shitshow re: the public and rules. What's it been like at your cinema?
