baselesque is considered a nuisancebaselesque is considered a nuisancebaselesque is considered a nuisance
Before you complain in here expect:

The following stock answers from the forum veterans

Answer 1 - most common answer

If you don't like it f** off back to where you came from - sometimes followed by a stereotypical reference to a national food or pass time

Answer 2

You must be have shit life and be a very depressed individual

Answer 3
You must be very stupid to fall for something like that

Answer 4
Why did you sign such a contract when it was plain to see in paragraph 37 subsection 4 clause k that they had you by the bal*s

On the other hand it will get read and you will get a response as none of them have anything else better to do and above all have an opinion on absolutely everything

Here's my opinion on "absolutely everything":

The simply answer is that some people are bitterly unhappy outside their comfort zone and cannot accept or handle a new situation - especially moving to a country where their mothers didn't raise them.

We can either accept and adapt, or resist - and eventually it will break us...

dear OP, you don't even know how to complain...

Re: Before you complain in here expect:

Sorry, but your post should be in the "I have nothing of any merit to say, but today, just for once, I'd like you all to think about me, just me and nobody else whilst I enjoy my few brief minutes in the digital spotlight" section.

At least this forum gives those who are predisposed to complain, the opportunity to complain about the way their complaints are handled.

Don't forget - first impressions stick. It then takes a lot of twisting and squirming to change that moment.
