    60s are mega.

    I'm hoping he is too busy out on his bike with the new wheels.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Senseless. Could miss the delivery.

    No, at home but doing some work. Delivery is now mañana so I guess I continue to be outraged at the madness of it all. Except now it's FedEx that's at fault because they've had the damn things since yesterday so I can only guess that they're enjoying the free speed and whazzing around Northern Ireland with them.

    Currently none too pleased with Fedex myself due to a 2 day delay, and possibly more. I could cycle the distance quicker.

    If they're whazzing around with them then they should get here faster.

    I reckon they're too busy enjoying them. Can picture them now, whazzing around, massive grin on their stupid faces, enjoying my wheels. The outrage is building.

    I'll wanna settle down
    Until tomorrow i'll keep moving on.

    C'mon everyone!

    There's a voice that keeps on calling me
    Down the road, that's where I'll always be.
    Every stop I make, I make a new friend,
    Can't stay for long, just turn around I'm gone again

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down,
    Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Teachers working in the holidays? You mean they do work outside of school hours as well? But that doesn't go along with my preconceptions about what an easy life they have.

    If it’s never too windy how come the MFs keep ending up in a ditch.

    Oh my…


  • johngtijohngti Posts: 2,416
    And now I can say that I was absolutely impressed by the service from Scribe. They couldn’t have been more helpful. All tongue in cheek, innit.

    They've only gone and delivered them upside down

    I was worried about that but they’re the right way up when they come out of the box

    Glad John managed to rectify that situation. 😉
