Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

    Had an image of short stockings and long suspenders! :eek:
    Maybe your legs are just too long :p

    They are - which can be both a blessing and a curse :rotfl: I ordered some off eBay, via China, not thinking about the Chinese perhaps genetically being smaller. They didn't even come up to my knee :o:rotfl::rotfl:

    I've been Money Tipped!
    One of those days, had job interview at 12 luckily at somewhere I know well as a client of, left 1 hour before interview knowing it can take as little as 20 minutes door to door but in rush hour like 30-40.


    I saw bus arriving as I left my house ran and bus driver must of saw me and pulled into bus stop despite no one getting on or off, a few feet from door he closes the door and pulls out all whilst some people waiting for another bus I saw grin and laugh.


    Got to inverview 10 minutes late, did phone in advance though and they told me it was an excellent interview.


    Got back to town at 1 after interview, went to get food, drinks machine was broken so went without a drink, had an appointment at 2 arrived 10 minutes early and person didn't arrive to 2.20 and what I assumed to be a 20 minute appointment took 2 hours decided to have some food rather than cook at home went back to food place but when I left got bus and 1 minute into my 4 minute bus ride someome had a seizure, luckily their relatives were there and helped them but waited 30 minutes for ambulance and got call back saying they won't attend as person is no speaking and seems concious.


    Finished journey home desperate for toilet came in and it leaked over my feet so had to mop up, then the mop slipped out my hands when cleaning.


    Annoying day, and to be clear I was sympathetic for the guy who had seizure its more I felt it to be just another thing that happened on a bad day.


    Was pouring with rain on and off all day too.

    I managed to get one over a bus driver the other day.

    I was in town and the driver definitely saw me coming towards the bus and still pulled away from the bus stop. There is a another bus which goes a similar way but it doesn't go to the nearest bus stop to my house.

    That other bus came soon after the first one, and I realised that the first one went into the railway station whereas the one I was on didn't - so I got off at the stop after that, and caught the original one. The bus driver still had a smirk when I got on, and said something that I didn't catch, but he knew he had underestimated me.

    :T Bravo! :T
    I've done something similar in the past.
    A great feeling of 'satisfaction'. I think the other bus passengers were surprised by my reappearance later on the route as well! :rotfl:
