the lloyds one is actually both mastercard and american express they send you two cards. One which is american express and one which is mastercard don't ask me why but they do. Also you get more airmiles for using the american express card than the mastercard, again no idea why.
I did however notice as I poked at the application form (without actually applying) that the Lloyds one requires details of your home addresses for the past 3 years (this is pretty standard of course, but the Barclays one didn't care which is why I tried it first).
This would mean I couldn't apply for one until after May 30th when we've been at this flat for 3 years, because our previous flat was created by a stupid landlord splitting a larger flat in two, but not informing any official sources of it. Hence, despite living there for a year, the address of 145B Richmond Road technically DOES NOT EXIST. :@
I hate power outages that last all night long... and then driving to work to find we've got power outages here too. Except of course for having generators in the buildings so we can still work at least... but couldn't get breakfast. Hate! *grrs*
@ Tim - couldn't you just put your parental address as your address. Because technically i've been living in 3 different houses in last 3 years but i just put down my parents address and they didnt care
I hate the internet. The only place where someone says "why does my webcomic not get as many hits as yours, it's a conspiracy" and you ask them a couple of questions about setting up their analytics engine right and offer them some constructive advice on the design of their webpage in order to make it user friendly... and they bite your frikkin head off and criticise your spelling... then continue to insinuate that it's a conspiracy and that you have somehow rigged the random banner generator that you have no control over in order to steal all the hits ¬_¬...
Yeah thats right, secretly *I* run palace in the sky just to steal hits from people. I swear people think that gateway actually makes a profit and isn't a money trap eating up all of the ad revenue it generates and then some...
grumble grumble- I've been a member of palace in the sky sky for a while now, and every 3 months or so, someone joins up who immediately starts on this tack of "where are my hits WHERE ARE MY HITS!?!" and when you say "okay, lets see what you could do to get more readers" they get all angry with you.
unfortunate answer; because sometimes a transaction can take a day or so to process, debit cards don't always register that you've run out of money until it's too late- which is why you should be aware of your balance.
I hate snowstorms that blow up on the night that I'm finishing my move... fething driving 30 miles each way with a car full of stuff (well, full going south, not going back north)... I was up until 6 finishing my move. And if I hadn't tossed most of the food in the fridge, I'd probably have needed to do a fourth trip (not including the two van loads of stuff).
