You've obviously not been to Birmingham city centre recently. Pick a god and their paramilitary wing is out in force, shouting at you through their megaphones about how damned you are unless you sign up to their particular brand of religion. As bad as it was before COVID and just as unforgiving.
I quite enjoy throwing them the heavy metal horns when I walk past, the old guy usually tries to give me a leaflet and then whips it away in disgust.You've obviously not been to Birmingham city centre recently.

I've got a set fee up front for the sale & purchase no matter how many times I ring . Good job as I keep checking up on things .So he'll charge you £25 + VAT just to make the call to you, then another £25 + VAT to answer your call to him. Plus charges for however long you're on the phone for.
Hard work being a solicitor...
That's just yards along Enville Street from the Royal Exchange which is my favourite Stourbridge pub.Now in Stourbridge having been strong armed into attending a clan gathering and driving 200 miles to do so. Tonight at the British Legion we'll drink, eat, chant, maybe boil up a virgin as part of the ritual.
Saying of the night: 'Oi ay a brummie.'
'signature doesn't meet with the mandate' is odd because signatures on cheques aren't checked.Aaaaargh! Panic stations this morning when I checked my bank balance .
Doing things the good old fashioned way the other day , I'd got a building society cheque to pay into the bank . Made sure I went to the cashier to pay it in , as I didn't trust the machine not to grab it & destroy all evidence of it....
Bloody thing's rejected because 'signature doesn't meet with the mandate' and money took back out again.
Now supposedly sorted (apparently mine wasn't the only cheque returned yesterday) and hopefully will be back in my account soon, Lesson learnt! Doing things the cheque-less way from now on.
After leaving my breakfast to hot foot it to town to get it sorted , was starving. First idea of a maccies didn't work out with queues right back to the door. Decided on a chippie from Boppin Dolphin instead....closed due to technical issues...
With blisters on my feet from new trainers I'd slung on in my panic , decided to catch the bus back. Missed the bloody thing by seconds, so hobbled back home instead.
Attempt to reheat the poached egg on toast ,still sitting on the kitchen side ,in the microwave went horribly wrong.
Hoping my luck changes and , fingers crossed, the money actually does re-appear back into my account .
Apparently , so I was told, the cheques are now scanned over to the clearance place (or whatever it's called) and lots are being rejected because they are too feint, signature goes over the line etc.'signature doesn't meet with the mandate' is odd because signatures on cheques aren't checked.
Good luck getting to the pub dry. Not so bad getting trapped in once thereImpressive showers here today - first one appeared very suddenly - instant pressure washer stuff - I was trapped in the Greenhouse, it wasn't worth even attempting the few feet to the Shed. About eight more of them arrived later, evenly spaced through the day. Anybody working out in the open will have noticed them, I'm sure, and might mention it, if I manage to survive the journey to the pub later.
There looks to be one big shower left upwind, but that 'should' track north of here - after that, it's just small ones (at this stage in their development). The outbound westward journey is 80% of the risk - if I get there OK, then setting out back in the dry, with the wind behind me, should get me here before anything catches up...
'My' new drain proved its worth - I would definitely be shovelling gravel off the lawn, if it wasn't there.
