Why i hate Chichester signs

Written by

Why i hate Chichester signs is because no one takes care of them.


Take some modern examples. This bus stop map. Dreadful condition and right outside the cathedral. What makes it worse is that it lists services that stopped running 5 years ago,

 

 

If you want to get information, don't follow this sign that's hasn't shown the correct location for 5 years since the Novium opened.

why i hate Chichester cycle routes

Written by

Chichester is one of the smallest cities, with one of the highest tourist rates, and apparently a non existent budget for road maintenance.

it has a glorious cycle route called the Centurian way that skirts the city from the Fishbourne edge all the way to west dean. however some of the access to it is by 1990s design [naff] award winning entrances.

its main downfall is it city center velo route.

inclusive or exclusive

Written by

Recently an organisation I work for held a meeting following a slight reshuffle. This group is currently flying the "everyone is included" banner and promoting accessibility (aka a11y*).

While at the 'decide a date' stage, the facilitator asked what was preferred, Google Hangouts or Skype. When one of the members complained that it was not really suitable for them and could it be audio recorded if it was on hangout.

Thinnest piece of metal ive seen

Written by

I have had the bikes for about 6 weeks and seems to be going fine.
That was until at about 10mph, while cruising, a slight "mechanical failure" happened.

The rear derailleur bracket decided to snap, causing the rear derailleur to swing into the spokes, bend the carrier, twist the chain and stop the wheel dead.
Basically the back wheel stopped, i stopped, but the dog didn't.

New name - non existent service.

Written by

I will never learn. recently friend F and i decided to go for a carvery and booked on line at a re branded harvester, now called 'Stonehouse Pizza & Carvery'.
The booking part went fine, the car park had spaces, the restaurant was not busy. and that's where it all went downhill.
at the reception desk (two women with a laptop) we were behind a couple who were being told they should have booked, and there might be space in the bar. i commented quietly i'm glad we did.
so i gave my surname, and that was checked, and then... i have NEVER ever been addressed by my first name in ANY restaurant by a member of staff.
