Without meaning to sound cruel, how? It was so piss easy, I thought it all but impossible to fail.


Not knowing that a cover note is something to do with insurance, is the question I can remember.

Useless ****ing buses. Mine failed to turn up so I ended up on the school special along with a horde of kids. Who smell.

My whole family being ill this weekend. Having to try and tell my tearful 4 year old that she will get better once the medicine has time to take effect.

I hear you Rob!

Being in A & E with my daughter at 7:15 this morning ... with wringing wet hair and having to wait an hour to be seen when there was no one else waiting. I have to say though they were great when we were seen. :yes:

Caught the last bus back from nottingham (midnight) saturday,after going to see Sabbat,it was absolutely packed to the rafters with pissed up goons,all swearing and swaying and trying to pick bloody fights. Mind you,it was probably preferable to a bus full of fucking schoolkids tho!

I had to come home when I could have stayed out with my mates longer to go to the dentist, and I swear I was in there no longer than 5 minutes, if that, in and out, and it cost me £16! 16 QUID for him to poke a little stick at my teeth for a minute.. well he said I had some tartar between one tooth I needed to clean so really.... I paid £16 for the denist to tell me to clean my teeth! :|
Why did the bastard have to go private I wouldn't have to have paid for that.

Well I know someone who posts on this forum who thinks that NHS dental charges are a bargain! He's living proof! :lol:

Back on topic ...

De-icing the car ... which made me run late ... and then not being able to park outside work .... and then having to trek from the nearest free parking in bloody freezing temperatures! :|

my aunt is nearlly 90 and is ill (loseing her marbels) she had a fall the a month or so back and she went into care while we re did her house. however shes a crafty all bat and made out she was fine to the doctors who against all the family's advise sent her back home saying she was fine. she doesnt no where she is and keeps fallin over and they have to get the ambulance out 3 times a day to pick her back up as she keeps falling over. called the local care worker who keeps visiting her and the doctor to see if they can change there mind and let us put her in a home where she is safe. what response did we get . no we think shes fine and can make her own mind up and only when she hurts herself can we step in and take over.

tis a joke. nearlly 90 and they say nothin can be done till she hurts herself. at this time of yr shes more likely to end up gettin killed if she falls.

thats whats pissed me off

Impervious phoning me up when I was asleep (again!) didn't amuse me....

No work, stuck here until 6.30 and the office internet filter won't let me on Ebay. Or Casey and Andy for some reason.
