Example Challenges

DC009 I keep getting continually annoyed with inconsiderate drivers whilst driving my car.

DC027 When am I going to get paid?

DC032 I’m getting stressed out because friends don’t immediately respond to texts.

DC063 People who text, then text again 5 minutes later and keep doing it until you reply (don’t people realise you may be unavailable or driving)!

DC066 Ringing up a supplier (in my case Virgin), on an 0845 no, so already you are trying to keep it short, then it being answered by a foreign person, who always starts by asking how your day is!  Then not understanding your enquiry!  Guaranteed to get you reaching for the brandy bottle!

DC087 I don’t understand it, I’m perfect for this company, and my price is great, why aren’t they using me?
