And surviving grinds your gears?
Interesting - and slightly troubling!
Are you allowed sharp knives?

Dammit, my bin's fallen over. Somebody has to go out there, brave the elements and pick it up!

I reiterate the advice I gave hellkat on the previous page. In addition, you may wish to consider a safety line.

I work on some obscure stuff. I doubt there's more I could dream of doing.

I did my own work and effort. Handouts aren't my thing.

On the bus home, the man in front of me absolutely HONKED of garlic.
I nearly retched.

It was like he had an unwrapped garlic sausage in his coat or something.

I had to put my nose inside my coat collar so I could breathe without smelling it. I love a bit of garlic but NOT THAT FUCKING MUCH Puke

This is one reason I hate public transport and try not to use it.
Getting the bus from outside my office into the centre of town is however easier and cheaper than either driving or taking the bike to a meeting in the office there.
Last time I did it there was a greasy looking student a couple of seats away on a laptop. The body odour was horrendous.
How can people not wash??

Ploughed through a pothole enroute to work. Both nearside tyres decided to deflate. One pumped back up at the roadside the other was utterly wrecked.

205/40 18 Runflats so not cheap and the dead one had less than 2000 miles on it Sad

My son came up to stay for a weekend a little while ago. We went to Nottingham to get some drum and guitar accessories. He said, "look, a five guys". I said "do you fancy that for lunch?"

32.00 for 2 burgers, chips and shakes.

Gears ground although they were good,but not that good.

Pah! Even their stupid name makes me snort with disgust - '5 mincing, snowflake, hipster, wanker guys i shouldn't wonder. Sounds like the Starbucks of burger joints.. a Burger FFS - haute cuisine it ain't.

fucking Vodafone


bunch of fucktards


my phone wont charge therefore the battery is dead and cannot turn my phone on

so a couple of weeks ago I got a text offering me a free upgrade

so thought I would log onto vodafones site to see if I can do it

two part security check with second part being a text to said phone with a 6 digit code
apparently they cannot do this a different way Twisted Evil
also government site does the same so cant sort uniform tax rebate either
