Last pub Here

Morning pubbers!

Can i have a cup of proper loose leaf tea please? And a bacon buttie if the kitchen is open.

OublietteBravo Sat 02-May-15 09:06:30

Flat white with an extra shot please.

I'm using my 'old' name for this post, because it helps illustrate my example.

We have a new cashless payment system for the canteen at work. To load you card, you have to set up an online account and enter your bank details. Usual statement about details having to match the name on your bank card. I tried to do this. Drop-down menu for title (which is a compulsory field) has the following options: Mr, Miss, Mrs. My bank card says Dr Oubliette Bravo. So I phone the help desk.

Me: I can't enter my name as it appears on my card - my title is Dr and this doesn't exist on your menu.

HD: oh just put Miss or Mrs, the title field isn't important.

Me (wondering why it is a compulsory field if it isn't important): OK, in that case I'll put Mr.

HD: you can't do that - it isn't your correct title.

<face palm>

I put Mr. It was fine. But why is there no option for Dr - especially as I work on a science park where ~60% of the staff have a PhD (the company in question runs several science parks).

YonicScrewdriver Sat 02-May-15 09:17:20

Doh, Oubliette!

StormyBrid Sat 02-May-15 09:21:49

Just marking my place. Pint of tea and a pile of bacon please.

DoctorTwo Sat 02-May-15 09:52:05

Like Stormy, I am marking my place.

TheLily1957 Sat 02-May-15 10:56:42

Good morning all. A large soya late please. That's ridiculous oubilette. I get frustrated with this all the time - not that I'm a Dr or owt posh like that but I would like the option of not putting my marital status when it has no relevance whatsoever....

<peeps round the door>

Hello! Can I come in?

OutsSelf Sat 02-May-15 14:34:09

Sorry to be basically out of action for months then just come in screaming. But AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA the royal baby, that kid has been girled the shit out of on this site and it's fucking depressing.

According to twitter people, we shouldn't be calling the baby a girl because they don't know what gender it will choose.

I can't even.

OutsSelf Sat 02-May-15 14:44:18

I'm choosing between anger and tears, thanks Buffy.
