Read the highway code

I am not sure how many people on Tweaked for your Pleasure drives beyond virtual gaming and all that but for those that do, I am sure everyone has seen drivers that seems to have never even heard of the highway code – let alone even seem to have seen another person on the road.

So the other day I had one of these rare trips into Grantham where I actually use a car. Anyhow I finally found a car park on the side of the street at which point I parked. The person in front me had loads of room to move out and also had loads of room so others could park in front of the person.

Spare me a quid, gov ?

While I have always moaned about public transport in the past, there are times I have needed to use them for whatever purpose it was. Anyhow this story is not another bus one but rather what happened at the bus stop.

First, we need to put a picture into your mind and what better way than using crappy paint drawings.

Demonic Snat

So in your mind you should now be thinking of a demonic looking me and while I may have not looked like that physically, it is at least how I must have looked to the random people who walked by.

So I was in my local town for what I was recalling for shopping purposes when I finally got to the bus stop around half an hour before the bus should officially come. Having missing out of a pound coin for the bus, I asked a friend who was there if he had a spare pound coin or else I would have to go to the bank and withdraw. Thankfully he did and he passed it over and I put it into my left coat pocket.

Wait, protect those batteries

It will not come to a shock to anybody reading this website that most stores no matter where they sell always rely on up selling to make extra profit. Everyone has their own view points on this but my issue is how far some companies will go just to make that little extra …

When I was out in town shopping around for a new laptop it came to my attention that I will need to buy some new batteries. Seeing I was already in a store, I looked around to see if there was any cheap batteries and to my surprise there was.

Tis is the season … of gift voucher

Ahh yes, December the time in which everyone does the very last of their Hanukkah/Christmas/Whatever shopping. Sure, there are tons of great stuff you can buy at very low cost and that is may many do leave it until the end but naturally there is always that one person you can never remember and at the last day you remember that they exist and even worst, they gotten you something (or they are a child or something and you just have to buy them something for the sake of it).

  • Do not bother
  • Get that "last" minute gift

Do not bother

The first one is that you can just go "oh well" and then just don’t bother with this. When you do this, people tend to just moan at you or something like that and then for the next few months you are known as the person whom didn’t get that person something. Sure that isn’t a bad thing but not everyone likes being known like that. While children do tend to forget about it quickly, they are also the ones that don’t understand. But lets say for a few minutes that you didn’t get them something because you simply didn’t have any money to do so. Adults (well, most but not all) will understand and wouldn’t expect anything in return but merely to offer joy (one of the meanings of Christmas) but children do not understand.

Most children do not understand about money. In the research I have done, most children believes that that money "just comes out the hole in the wall" and unless taught at an very early age, a lot of these children will grow up believe money will just come to them and we have all seen what happens. But going back a bit, even if you just forgot about it that the children will still cry about it as they always think it is about them but anyway children isn’t the point of this article.

So if not bothering isn’t your thing, then there is one more option that never fails which now leads me too…

Get that "last" minute gift

I am sure we all know those shops that are always open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days of the year and they always seem to sell those little toys for a couple of pounds. For children that are not your own, these tends to do (coming from experience) but children belongs to you or children that are children of family friends always seems to want that "one big gift" that cost always seems to go up each year. But for adults, they are always happy to just get something that they can unwrap.

So which leads me onto what both adults and children likes – gift vouchers. Children loves them because they are able to buy something that they want such as a game or something and adults love them because they can spend it on something they actually like. Gift vouchers also helps because it stops the likes of people going in a few days later returning that gift they didn’t like but just nodded because they had to be polite.

Also, with the e-vouchers becoming very well known with companies like Apple and Amazon, it got to the stage where what people actually want – you can just click and order online and get within a few minutes which you can then often print out or e-mail.

Sure, it defeats the feel of surprise but to be honest, it is only children that tends to like that but on the other hand, they tend to already know because they told Santa 😉

This article is NOT RELATED to me trying to order a Amazon Gift Voucher last night for a gift for a female whom name I have used so many times in Tweaked for your Pleasure in quite a few "bad ways" I am surprised she even still says hi to me !

Scientology

Lately it seems that alot of people has been requested that I do a post about Scientology and normally I just ingore any requests however this one is different as I have to point something out to everyone and important that they pissed me off by wastingmy time.

It started when I was in a city peacefully doing some shopping when someone offered me a free stree test. I already knew what they truthfully ment however I decided to actually see what was the fussed everyone was talking about. So, I sat down and this man told me to use what they called an “E-Meter” (Which is just a simple lie dectoter) and after the test they told me that I was very stressed from my “past-lifes” (If I have had a past life, I don’t remember it ;)) and that I needed help to become stress-free or enlighted (Not sure what they said nor mean).
