    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.

                      You can find many bad apples, but their is more good agents than rouge ones.
                      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'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...

                                A bit off topic, but for anyone taking regular medication and is under 60, it's possible to buy a prescription pre-payment certificate, which costs £108.10 for 12 months of all the medication you normally pay £9.35 a pop for.
                                If you take more than one type of medication it's a real saving -...

                                I'm surprised to be in agreement with you Art.



                                Probably the best decision at the time.

                                But how to redress the balance?

                                Winter Fuel Payment for mansion owners? Bus passes for Bentley owners? State pension freeze? Free (for all) prescriptions? Scrap...

                                Interesting you seem to suggest NHS usage is a "benefit". (I'd not argue with you..)

                                Being aged 73, I object to be described as the "weakest in society": The e.g. poor, the sick, the homeless, the abused, the downtrodden I'd consider some or most, sadly for them, usually...

                                Class 1 NIC's are compulsory. I'll certainly be drawing the state pension when I can but I could and have made far better investments elsewhere....

                                Only if they didn't invest it (and monitor it to make sure it's keeping on track).

                                If I'd invested all the money I've had to pay into state pensions, I'd be buying a Bentley at retirement age, not claiming a free bus pass....

                                You'd still get your pension because younger people are paying for it. If there wasn't "younger people" then you wouldn't get it. Even with private pensions, they can't really last past the 22nd century when the global population is set to decline. Private pension rely on growth, and when...
