All happening over here with panic buying. Two women charged for fighting over toilet rolls in a super market. AND a guy tasered by police for the same reason. **** wits all.

Us mere mortal clubs need a retort to their “Champions of England, you’ll never say that” dirge which is totally getting on my nerves this season.
“You married your sister and your mum is your dad” is all I can think of. A bit rough around the edges admittedly, but a fair window to their peculiar fan base I feel.

"Zenith Data Systems Cup, you'll never win that" was sung in response to Chelsea a couple of seasons back.

Leicester City sang their version at Huddersfield Town when they were in the premier league.

Didn’t Chelsea win it the year before or after us ?

The dickhead post office van driver who came round the corner on the wrong side of the road, just missing me. Really f*cking stupid. I followed him up the road, and when he stopped I confronted him. Told me I shouldn't follow him, he was doing his job and that if it was night time (?) he'd kill me. I'm not sure the guy should be let out in public, let alone be driving a two ton vehicle.

No, wasn't connected to his driving. He was saying that if he wasn't at work, he would kill me. I did laugh. He was technically a dwarf.

Things that annoy you
 
Was having a shit at work when I casually looked down at my cock to see it covered in blood. Panicking I then noticed it on my hand and as I scrambled about searching for a cut, spread it to my sack, stomach and work shirt.

Unable to locate a cut and panicking I stood up, cock out and shit between arse cheeks, I checked my face and head in the mirror. No cut.


Realising that it couldn’t possible be my blood I lifted the toilet seat:

Unfortunate episode.

When I worked for the Co-op I was accused of bleeding in the work-place. They said, 'are you bleeding anywhere'. I said, 'no'. They said, 'are you sure? Someone's been bleeding out back. Are you sure you're not bleeding?'. They then gave me that knowing look like they knew it was me who was bleeding when it really wasn't. It was then that I realised that life, and work in particular, was a place of constant iniquity for which all protestation is futile.

Reminds me of when we've had community garage sales here (I think you call them boot sales), and you have stuff that cost you in excess of $100 and you want $1 for it, and someone comes along and offers you 50 cents for it.

I'm sure this is a game to some people... More often than not it ends up at a charity shop anyway, so I'll accept the 50 cents. Still annoys me, but hey if they get a kick out of it, so be it.

I sold a set of my sons old football boots in great condition.

About a month later, I saw that the buyer had given me bad rep as "the boots broke".

I was pleased to be able to point out that he'd had them for a month before he posted the bad rep, with no contact with me; however, I've lost my 100% positive rep. :frown:

Clearly CE has pots of cash and can afford to just chuck it away and shrug his shoulders. Delighted for him.

I can cancel the cruise now and get a credit for another one before end 2021. Quite a clever move from the cruise company as the people that do that won’t be eligible for a refund if they eventually cancel the sailing.

My flights, hotels and transfers etc will be lost

The point I was making is that there are bigger concerns at the moment yet people continue to think about themselves. If trying to contain a pandemic means a lost holiday then take it on the chin. Other people will suffer much more significant financial hardships as a result of the pandemic.

If I lost money on a holiday then yes, I would give a ****, but I wouldn’t be bleating about it.

Isle of Wight 13-03-2020 07:41 PM

I’ve booked a trip to Barcelona in April on air miles and payed up front on a non refundable Hotel with hotels.com. Unless they lock down I have to either go and risk or eat it. Not sure if my annual travel policy will help as the air miles don’t really have a value. My son on the other hand has a ski trip to the USA that he saved for a couple of years for that also looks like it’s fubar’d but you can’t blame anyone apart from the bloody Chinese bastards who thought it a good idea to eat endangered Pangolin.

No I’m not at all

The point is you have no empathy for someone who may have lost a shed load of cash on a holiday, and seem quite happy to tell people

Which is twatish

The words “ And I get that” might suggest otherwise.

And please use full stops. And perhaps cease the personal insults.

So you ‘get it’ and yet it annoys you ?

What bollocks

My preconception of the type of person who goes on cruises has been confirmed.

So you’re wrong. Again.

But you wanted to. At least you have saved money by not now having to rent your Black Tie for the All You Can Eat buffet night.

Chiswick, it would have been well below the cummerbund but I believe you meant 'clip-on black bow tie',

It might be my idea of hell, but I think Worksop was intending to attend a cruise not a funeral

Just because youve never been on one, doesnt mean you cant be the type who goes on one.

Why doesn’t that surprise me

Seriously, I do wonder how many people are going to lose their businesses, jobs and therefore homes, their parents and loved ones.

So far on here Bigend has lost his job as a pilot - and the hopes of finding a similar job again soon will be next to none.

Hpalace has said he doesn't see his business surviving, and even '8%percent growth Maz' is clearly now concerned and desperately wants to keep his employees employed.

I wonder what to do with my own small business, tell people to work from home or not?
Or just tell them not to work, I think the chances of people spending marketing and advertising dollars in my sector is next to zero right now. I lost one significant contract this week that has taken three months to land...

I rate thechances of coming out through this as a company 50 50, the sensible option might be just to close it while there is still cash on the books.

Talking of which on a personal level I have lost a large degree of my savings, which will have to last me the rest of my life, with the crash.

But even those these consequences are harsh, this is nothing compared to those that are going to die gasping to breath, thousands and thousands of us.

I believe it is in this context that Chiswick says missing out on a holiday really isn't the end of the world in comparison to those that are facing the end of their world

It doesn't mean that missing out on a holiday isn't incredibly frustrating, it is just that it isn't life changing, or life ending

A retired couple has a B&B booked for two nights on the Kent coast next week. Should they carry on with the trip or stay at home?

Correct. And explained with far more clarity than I clearly managed.

Who knows?

they could catch it at the local supermarket as much as at a B&B. Are they driving or taking the train?

How healthy are they? 60 year old hikers fit as fiddles or 75 year olds with respiratory problems?
