Huddersfield charity shop finally says goodbye to a shutter which lasted 26 years


http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/huddersfield-charity-shop-finally-says-10780879

That's it. That's literally it. A charity shop has replaced one of its roller shutters after having the same one for 26 years. It's all go in Huddersfield.

I challenge you lads to find a more pointless news story than this.

I don't understand - did she buy the whole warehouse for herself? The places I've just started looking at cost half that and I'm still left scratching my head over what I'm going to do with a second bedroom and bathroom.

>Did you look at any other properties?
>It was actually the only place I looked at.

She well and truly got shafted. That estate agent pulled her pants down, put her over his shoulder and marched the streets of Bristol spanking her like a bongo drum as he went. It's her parents who are at fault on this.

It's news because it provokes us to talk about it the same way Big Brother shows are a human zoo, rather than a real insight into how people live. The only confusing thing is how the papers come by these stories in the first place.

Poverty, aggression and £120 profit: My day at Walton Street Market

When I mentioned to people I was thinking of doing a car-boot sale at Walton Street Market they all said exactly the same thing to me. I was warned - on more than one occasion - to prepare myself for the other traders pouncing at the start. It’s a well known fact they take the best of your unwanted items to then sell them for a profit on their stall. This actually sounded alright to me – if I could off-load stuff as soon as we arrived, so what if the professionals made a few quid out of them? I just wanted rid.

We arrived and I thought I was prepared, but nothing could have prepared me for the vultures who surrounded the car as soon the engine was turned off. I had taken an old wallpaper pasting table and sticky labels for the price tags and had visions of getting everything set up nicely for people to peruse – oh how naive I was. A group of about eight people practically fought each other to see what we had. Not even the likelihood of catching a deadly virus during a worldwide pandemic could stop them clambering over each other to paw at my children’s old books, toys and general household junk.

You would think I was giving out £10 notes the way the crowd surged. It’s almost like the crowd attracted a crowd. People saw people and probably thought it must be a good loot, and in turn that drew more people in. I’d taken a lot of it in boxes and as soon as we started unloading the car they were rifling through them – sometimes two or three people looking through the same box. Few of them were wearing masks.

A guy who was clearly a trader suddenly noticed a box – still in the back of the car – full of my children’s old shoes and shouted at me, demanding I got the box out. He starts going through them. “How much?” he grunts. "I’ve no idea, £1 a pair?” I said, and with that he starts pairing them up, with two other men also trying to grab the shoes. They were all mixed up and he wasn’t happy if he couldn’t find the matching shoe immediately. In the end I asked my partner to deal with him because I just found him far too aggressive. I would have given him the entire box for free at that point, just to get him out of my face.

At the start you needed eyes in the back of your head. There was two of us, but we could have done with another pair of hands as people grabbed our stuff. I’m sure at the beginning people would have easily been able to pocket some of our smaller items without us noticing. There was just too many people to watch. We didn’t get a breather for what felt like ages. I was amazed at what was selling as I’ve thrown away better things in the past.

The oddest sale was probably a monkey teddy to a pensioner. You naturally assume it’s for a grandchild or something, but his wife confessed he collects monkeys. Apparently he’s got a wardrobe full of them. Obsessed he is.

A security flaw in a hi-tech chastity belt for men made it possible for hackers to remotely lock all the devices in use simultaneously.

The internet-linked sheath has no manual override, so owners might have been faced with the prospect of having to use a grinder or bolt cutter to free themselves from its metal clamp.

You have to think that realistically, how much better can a "trained" cleaning professional be at slipping on some rubber gloves and then taking a sponge pad and some Dettol and scrubbing human waste off a hard surface. So much so that your services that day were worth £600. The letters inside the postbox were probably a writeoff either way.

Care workers have the real shit job in comparison. One of my exes had a sister who was an NHS carer, whose daily job it was to assist in washing and showering morbidly obese and handicapped people. NHS carers by and large get paid relatively decent money, depending on experience and position, but if you break it down into hourly wages, you often get to rinse people's arsecracks for under a tenner.

My ex's sister said something that she was making a bit over £20K. That was 10 years ago. She was still young, mid-20s, she probably makes more now, if she is still in that field.

I guess it's one of those jobs where if you don't see the human side of it and that you are making a difference in a person's life by doing it, you're better off making £10 an hour elsewhere. Even a service station attendant probably gets that much now, doing work that's far less emotionally involving.

Well, I think that's exactly it - I can't believe that any carer does it for the money when there are so many other terrible jobs around. At least it has real meaning in someones life.

I don't understand how this would improve business, though. He's not quoted in the article as saying "This whole ordeal has really impacted my ability to deliver top quality phone repair at highly competitive rates". Anyone reading it would be like, "oh, so he repairs phones". But if you're in Hull and have a broken phone you're not going to take it to the first place you see like you're hypnotised; surely you're gonna look at reviews and compare prices at least a little?

>A police officer who scanned a seven pence barcode for carrots instead of the £9.95 barcode for Krispy Kreme donuts that he was buying for colleagues has said it was an honest mistake.

>Pc Simon Read told a misconduct hearing that he did not realise he scanned the carrot barcode twice at the self-service tills at a Tesco Extra in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, on February 10 this year. He accepted that he failed to scan the barcode for the box of 12 donuts while purchasing four items at around 11.30am – the donuts, carrots, a sandwich and a drink – but said this was not done on purpose.

>The Cambridgeshire Police officer, who joined the force in January of this year, said he was buying the sweet treats for colleagues as a “cake fine”. Pc Read said he was buying the carrots for his sergeant who was on a diet, and he thought it “would be funny” for them to be in a Krispy Kreme paper bag. He said he stuck the carrots barcode onto the donut tray, as it would have spoiled the joke if he stuck it on the paper bag.
