I have come to the conclusion that they are too thick/impatient to organise 30 seconds of paring their phone with their car/kit.

Because lets face it that chyte is standard on luxury cars these days.

Also if their phone does not re-pair with their car for some reason (it happens) they are back to square 1.

£34 of magazine e subscription credit for just €19 ... Includes titles like Rugby World, that mag for example is €6 a copy.... With this you'd get 12 copies for €19 (pls you'd have credit leftover).

Cannot recommend this one enough, everyone in my office gets it and the amount of deals you get in one go every morning is fantastic saves trawling through 20 mails from different sites.

Booked a holiday with KeyCamp. Their .co.uk site was nearly 10% cheaper for the exact same dates/accommodation etc. than the .ie site. I took that price, asked the Irish office would they honour it and they did.
Get in the f%~king bag.
