    Unconscious humour from posters

    It seems to me there is a lot of unconscious humour here, the latest one for me is...........

    Hi. The S.21 is not valid for a number of reasons. I would be willing to sign a new AST with the prospective buyer. I suppose they are just an unknown quandary at the moment.
    Of course I know what he means but his brain seems to be running faster than his typing

    Can I suggest that we post them here when we spot them.

    Could the guy be using type-talk? I get the impression one or two prolific posters on here do, when they come up with similar mistakes.

      Sorry, I dunno what type-talk is. Is it for blind people?

      I do know one completely blind man that has his computer read his emails aloud to him, he has the speech running so fast that I cannot understand a word of it. His typing skills are phenomenal as well.

        I may have used the wrong term, but I meant a program that types what is said into a microphone.

              Here's one I enjoyed today:

              "Forget the advice about needing a "reasonable" amount of time to look at the contract, and have it looked by a third party. It's a phallacy."

                  Although it certainly wasn't a laughing matter for the OP in another thread about LL not doing repairs, the 'leek in the bedroom' which brought the ceiling down made me smile. Must have been some leek.

                  I also liked the idea of a 'Signed Afadavid'. (What you do with the other afa the david wasn't made clear).

                    I think threads like this work best if the person making the mistake is not identified.

                      Priceless!!!

                      (Apart from the "interesting" Ingerlish/grammar/syntax..) I've this image of some regency dandy with rouged cheeks sitting in his wee letting agency waiting for that wonderful, hoped for, perfect tenant/landlord to walk through yon door..

                      Alternatively the poster may be referring to a particularly remarkable exemplar of "Cox's Orange Pippin.."

                      Cheers!

                          I was doing some voluntary work for a group trying to transfer off the council to a self managing organisation.

                          A scruffy dishevelled and smelly individual with a brillo pad beard joined meeting and no one knew where he lived, so the chair took him to one side to offer some help.

                          He replied that he was the council's housing officer.... !
                          Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

                            As a conveyancing solicitor I believe the information given in the post to be useful (provided it relates to property in England & Wales) but I accept no liability except to fee-paying clients.

                              From one of today's threads:

                              Any chance of claiming any damages from the landlord? My furniture and other staff now smells and the whole house will need a thorough cleaning.

                              I told him to make sure the staff take a shower and change their clothes.

                                I bet you guys know what I mean by pilot error.

                                It's when your tenant calls you out saying something is faulty when they don't know how to use it. Today the lady who couldn't open her Washer Dryer a couple of months ago called to tell me that the heater in her spare room wasn't working....

                                Just been over to my friend's, as he asked for more water softener salt. I went in the bathroom to wash my hands and noticed the tap was loose. 'Why didn't you tell me your tap was broken?' I said.

                                'Oh, I didn't want to bother you'.

                                I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

                                What's wrong is that there is absolutely zero evidence that the killer did anything at all because of Brexit.

                                Jo Cox was killed while campaining during the referendum, but there's nothing to suggest that the murder was anything other than an act of terror.

                                There really is an extreme level of determination (or cognitive dissonance) involved in refusing to accept that the murder of Jo Cox was influenced by Brexit.
                                It is the opposite of 'common sense' to refuse to see this.

                                I really don't see why anyone would just accept this, since it...
