I'm confused, can you clarify what this "student credential" is?

 

Because you said it was for a bank for student loans.

 

Is this your Student Loan account? Is it your login username? What exactly did you send them?

 

Don't you have a student card? Have you asked them what else they would accept?

sorry about that, the student credential at my university is a certificate that you can print out that gives banks everything they need to give you a student loan, or loan in general. It is used for verification purposes that the person who holds it is actually a student. Sorry for the confusion. I have a student card, but it the email they specifically asked for a schedule. I am taking 1 semester off for work, but I still am an "active student".

Oh okay - my apologies, such a thing does not exist in Ontario, that I'm aware of.

 

I would contact support again and ask specifically what exactly is missing from the certificate.

I couldn't answer that question. What annoys you about the ads? Is it annoying because it's taking up your time? (Eg: you're annoyed simply because you have to watch an Ad to begin with?) Or does a specific ad just annoy you because of it's content?

 

Some ads are totally annoying. I find a lot of TV ads to be annoying - especially since they tend to be a little longer. The sweet spot is 15 seconds for me. A 15 second ad I will generally let run start to finish, unless it's a product I have zero interest in or is irrelevant (Eg: menstrual supplies). 30 second ads are fine as long as it's not all the time.

1. Ads of products that I could not use are annoying. More than once I found the advertiser website to read some version of  'DEFINITIVELY NOT SHIPPING TO POLAND'.
2. Ads that are overly loud are annoying.
3. Ads of products I don't need are annoying.

4. Ads of products that I know are shit and have better alternatives are annoying.

And then, when I finally get a nice ad, it gets old really fast.

One time I was riding a bike back from work in winter at night on a road with a really narrow roadside, the kind where if you move your hands wrong for a second you're going to fall down a steep hill. YouTube rewind ad comes up with a really loud shout that I thought was behind me, which made me turn my head really fast and nearly go down, some hours later I had ads blocked on yt.

Content. Might be country based... but here, the Spotify adds that are not from Sky/spotify self promotion, are the worse, in every way. Anyone not able to mentally block them out would be ashamed/embarrassed/shocked by their content. It's not "your annoyed because your being you", it's "these adds are ing to be annoying [lets go find the worse adds we can and put them in our product], and force you to turn off/buy premium".

You shouldnt do that in the first place, police should hand out pretty hefty fines for this dangerous and very bad practice....

There's no law against that where I live, so I stick to the opened headphones without worries. I've over 10 000 km mileage with no 'I couldn't hear it so I didn't notice it' situation, probably because my headphones dampen sound less than car's closed windows. Are you speaking from experience, or is it just something someone said?
