Let's wait and see. He hasn't slipped up about the Russian yet. I see some "god's gift to women" tendencies though...

Can't be Iggles - apparently doesn't drive (as lives and works in same complex) and is not bragging about an amazing gold Tiida

Well, Iggles *could* come back in disguise but I think it would be challenging for him to build up a new "profile". He would slip pretty quickly as he has the need to brag about the Russian amongst other things. The grammar police would spot his writing style too....

Please could we be nice and not deliberate whether a new member is Iggles or not. Let's not chase the new members away. Thank you!

what about the new members, with 3 posts, who simply ask for information that they can't be bothered to lookup for themselves (particularly with no pleases or thank yous)??

That's my first rant on here i think!!

Its not just him/her - its the same every week. People who are basically too lazy to use Google.

That takes laziness to a whole new level.

Agreed, we do see it a lot - but this particular individual just got under my skin - not a "hello", "please", "thank you", "I'm coming to Dubai soon and trying to find out what is what", "I did do a search, but couldn't find anything"............. just a quick-fire question with no pleasantries whatsoever!

We need the original invoice

It's a print out from a PDF

Yes, we need the original

You want the original PDF?

Yes, the original invoice

But if you print it out, it will be the same as the print out I'm giving you now

No sir, we need the original invoice from the company

But this is the original, it's an electronic file

This will not do, sir.

OK, so if I get the vendor to print out from this same file and get them to courier that across to us then that will be acceptable?

Yes, sir.
