No word of a lie, on the khazi every 10-20 mins, and petrified about farting :oops:
That is really awful for you DL, I hope you will finally benefit from your radiotherapy therapy, and everything comes good for you. :(

Costa coffee has that effect on me. I hope I never have to combine radiotherapy with Costa coffee as it will get messy!

Good luck with the treatment DL. And no making a mess on the upholstery of your clean car.

Most likely a code. When I was doing work on Network Rail stations, the "Inspector Sans" announcement mean't a single knock had gone off on the fire system - it was an alert for the staff to check the panel.

She regaled me with minute detail of every part of her school shorts search sage from beginning to end. Fair enough, I'm interested in the boy not being overly hot at school, particularly like most kids his age he is completely useless at keeping hydrated despite us handing him a full bottle of flavoured water as he enters school and telling him repeatedly to make sure he drinks it all through the day.

Anyway, the kids go to bed and she's on the phone to the mother in law to repeat EVERY SINGLE PART OF THE CONVERSATION SHE HAD WITH ME TO HER MOTHER. Word for ****ing word.

They say women talk more than men. I for one believe that. They can't go 10 minutes without nattering on about something, I could happily go a full week without talking to another human being.
I remember donkeys years ago (well before mobiles) my Mum was on the phone to her sister. My Dad had tried to call her from work to say he was on his way home, but obviously couldn't get through. An hour or so later, he walked through the door and Mum was still on the blower!

Needless to say, Dad always paid the rent and the bills EXCEPT the phone bill. That was Mums!

People that pronounce spec as "spess".

Ditto Aussies and saffers that say "Proe-ject".

Horsefly bites.
Thanks to the local Council not cutting the grass in our local park for nearly 2 months, parts of it are like a scene from Jurassic Park. Woke up this morning with a load of Horsefly bites on my legs from having taken the Dogs for a walk in the park and losing a tennis ball of their in the longer grass. Whilst wearing shorts.

There's variable speed limit cameras along the A13 able to identify your motor , what should happen now is every single driver receive £10 per day off of the Highways Agency but paid for by Cadent. That might focus them on actually finishing the job sometime this millennium...........
Got a parking ticket last month as they hadn't taken down the suspended parking bay sign even though they had finished work on my road. I contested it and Havering council said no, you've got to pay it (****ers) as it was clearly signed as suspended.

As a last resort i called Cadent and asked them if they could do anything about it. They couldn't have been more helpful and they are going to pay me back for the fine. :)

I’m not saying there aren’t plenty of c*nts on bikes making a nuisance of themselves, pissing everyone off and generally being a pack of entitled arseholes. But ultimately, 12kg of bike is statistically far less likely to maim or kill than 1.5T of car.
True, but me stopping suddenly to have the artic behind me tuck itself into the back half of my car isn't going to do much good for the health of me, or my kids sitting there.
I say this as I have almost had that happen to me, literally the damn thing stop kissing my bumper, if his breaks were not so good , or he'd not been paying attention at that moment he would have totaled the car.

Why aren't cyclists taxed for all of the extra fuel they cause other road using vehicles to use?

Children in the park playing hide & seek and instead of counting up to whatever they count to, one lazy ***** was using the timer on his mobile phone.

Because the government are already coining it in from the tax the motorist is paying on all that extra fuel they're using...

At least his count would be accurate in time rather then the way we used to do it. counting as fast as we possibly could.

Did a speculative application a few weeks back for trainee driver for Crossrail. Got through a few stages so far, with on-line tests and stuff - and now got to do yet another one.

With an instruction of 'print off the learning materials and conduct the practice test' I've got 33 pages of stuff to read through (thank got for a printer that can print double sided) and learn, and test has to be submitted by 4th July - next Thursday, whilst I've still got brain fog from the chemo, which according to the hospital, I will have for a good few months after treatment has ended- which thus far is only 2 months! **** my life!

Now panicking that I won't be able to do it, or rather, I'm going to do it and **** it up :P

Best of luck Dyers! I'm guessing getting this job would give you a healthy pay rise?
