    Morning lads, a better start to the day here, well weather wise

    Sungod ,if you come across a fridge that is built to the above standards could you let me know, i am sure if anyone makes one to your standards it will be a best seller

    i thought i might ask seano for advice, i hear he recently has done extensive research on other products, he may have some tips

    Beds, retro furniture, TV's, soundbars, vintage clocks, rugs, hats, kids school shoes, I'm your man. Still a bit green when it comes to fridges, although I'd probably buy a chest freezer separately as it's easier to lob in dismembered body parts.

    Keep the fridges separate, one for food, one for beer and one for wine :)

    Busy day of work meh, improved by memories of a nice bike ride last night

    Morning, no help of fridges I'm afraid. Early start this morning an a long day car sounds like a tractor as well leading me to assume the blowing exhaust has gotten worse.
    It's 170 for a centre section, or 260 for a full stainless system so logic states stainless so best get it booked in. Off to find a half drinkable coffee, my quest may take some time.

    Sitting down at Halfrauds autocentre getting a flat tyre repaired. Not even my car :roll: Also the bloke who is replacing the garden fences rang today to say he cant do stuff today as its raining, so that's more days with no bloody fence between us and the neighbours which means we cant just let the dog out for a leak. Ho hum.

    At least Im out for a drink tonight...

    Ouch. Done my back in doing SCR, with the emphasis on the silly, seeing as I know that my "opponent" is way quicker than me and I am not properly fit following nearly 2 weeks off the bike for wedding and honeymoon. Rode in anyway despite the back and the rain, because the thought of public transport was too depressing. Off to purchase NSAIDs to swallow with food. Coffee and keeping my head down while simultaneously moaning about my back is what the rest of the day is all about.

    Morning folks,
    Bloody knackered today, didn't sleep at all well for some reason. My back hurts too which is no good. Had to drive in today as I need to pick the Mrs up and get to a 6th form choices evening. Hopefully it won't delay my arrival at the pub later.
    You should've bought that telly yesterday Seano.
    Heard from the lad this morning. He's leaving Fiji tonight, morning their time. Got himself into a drinking contest with some Irish lads, he managed to break them all and was the last man standing. They aren't as lightweight as Seano because at least they turned up. :-)
    Two cups of tea have been drunk, washing down a chocolate muffin that somehow found it's way into my possession. Need coffee next.

    Well if you live near him then hen it seems a no brainier innit. Why look elsewhere? Imagine the glory, glamour, kudos and cachet of living near a bloke who sells bicycles.

    ...and you're not a pikey?! You are paying the price for dithering. You're not a very good Pikey are you really? A half decent Pikey would have found a van full of them from somewhere from someone, sold the surplus and kept one.

    SG hasn't got high standards, he wants the impossible.

    Now that the PhD* is complete, today was an opportunity to tidy up. Put all the tools away, cleaned the work bench, vacuumed up all the sawdust.

    Looked at next job and decided it was far too much effort, so have been considering Plans B, C, and D. They may all be easier, but will be a lot more expensive. :x

    Managers started referring to me as "B" because my surname starts with a B. I wish to end him...

    What would be your weapon of choice if you were to whack your boss? The desk lamp is good.
    Of course Seano's a pikey, why did Piña have to ask?

    Or "C". Tell him it's short for "Captain".

    Morning. Currently at work eagerly awaiting 6pm and a few days off. Regarding bosses just tell em straight he's useless. Won't have to worry about it after that.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Seriously? What a bell end. Even round here they don't do that unless invited to by the person they are addressing.

    I'd just walk up to him and kick him in the nuts.

    Actually, no.

    Drop an MGOB on him. That'll really hurt.

    Long old walk Matt, he works on another site with his chums. Ill save the kicking for when I get to visit so some meeting or such, wont say anything just a plum punt and walk off.

    I'm liking A mainly because his last name begins with an A so I can blag it.

    Sent him an email reminding him of my name and that I would prefer him not to refer to me as B. if he carries on least I have my dislike on record.

    Place I worked at years back is how I ended up being called Step as we had five people called Stephen/Steven in the same area.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,571
    Pay someone £20 and a taxi fare to do it. Saves time, energy and potentially having plum juice on your shoe.

    Good stuff re email - if he carries on just send it to HR, get him sacked, smash his wife's back doors in and tell him it's all about karma.

    Yep, flies to Auckland and straight on to Queenstown. Then the small matter of finding a job.

    Daughter flies to Queenstown in December. She has a one way ticket as she doesn't know where she is off to after NZ.
