Along the same line, urinals that are set up at a height for little people.

If you are taller and use one, your piss splatters everywhere including your trousers and your shoes.

In fairness, they do mostly have some set-up for taller people but they are usually always in use for obvious reasons.

And I do appreciate urinals of any height would be an improvement in The Arthur!

The thing with these people is they seem to lack the ability to sit in silence with their own thoughts for a couple of minutes.

Many of us of an older generation would be happy to just look out the window.

Are the recipients of the phone call of the same ilk or do they sit there wondering why they have a 'friend/relative' who insists on giving them the mundane rundown on all aspects of their life.

I would be declining the call.

I'm a dogshit magnet. If there's any about, I'll more than likely tread in it. Not as bad as when I was a kid though. I saw what I thought was part of a brick and gave it a hefty kick, as you do. Dogshit went flying everywhere. My mum would have posted on this thread if the Internet had existed back then. I once slipped in a sloppy bit of dogshit and would have wound up sitting in it if my mum hadn't grabbed my arm. The things you remember...

The usual retort is that "its no different to overhearing a conversation" but it is, it really is. The whole pitch and tone of hearing someone else's voice through a mic is so much more distracting.

The woke reaction to Barry Humphries and his ill worded but age-related response to transgender people here in Melbourne has made me angrier and more ashamed of this city than anything I've ever been, in my 43 years in this supposedly great liberal city. It's a real catch 22 for me.

Talk about the Aussie tradition of tearing down tall poppies. Nothing was taller than Barry from this City.

The insurance is where they really try and confuse you. A lot of the time they will tell you that you need a certain insurance that is already covered by your normal car insurance. A lot of conflicting information out there on this. Probably depends on what country you rent the vehicle in.

I took the LDW Insurance, but opted out of the rest, as I'm pretty sure I was covered by my own insurance and AAA, but like you say, they over complicate it and can get quite aggressive pushing additional insurance on you. The agent was OK this time, I assume because I took the LDW when I made the booking.

My understanding (right or wrong) is Loss Damage Waiver (LWD) covers any damage to the car itself with no deductible. Your own insurance does cover any damage but if you have a deductible - in my case $500 - you have to stump that up to them at time of returning the car, and can get pretty complicated and time consuming. As I get older I go for the peace of mind approach and pay the LWD.

The insurance actually cost almost as much as the actual renting of the car, which is crazy.

As you have "Problematic joints" you must know there is no real cure for "Arthritis" but a number of treatments to slow it's progress.I take medication but happy to consider your "Recipe".I am sorry to hear that you are also a sufferer.

When you phone the credit card company and you have to enter your 16 digit card number (plus expiry date and date of birth) on the phone key pad before they put you in the call queue - and then the first thing they ask you when you finally get through to someone after 15 minutes on hold is "what's the 16 digit number on your card"!

Which is why it is irritating to see a fictional character claiming to be suffering from it. I would be equally irritated if Bugs Bunny was always going on about his arthritis. And Bugs Bunny is at least funny.

Yes, totally agree. Been there, done that.

Plus along similar lines, a fad these days is to "pre-check-in" for a doctors appointment, where you fill out or your particulars (insurance etc.) on-line, only to arrive at the doctors office and have to go through the whole process again on paper.

You are "Bored" with it regrettably my good self has to endure it not pleasant all.
Despite our differences I sincerely hope you are never "Inflicted" with it. "Don't get old".
Kind regards to you Sir.

Endure does not mean whining about it every post.

Anyway, positivo news from a previous post on here.

The escaping dog came back, and several times. It is in her natural to run off and come back.

My missus told me that the supposed owner turned up yesterday. We will see whether the dog goes there, stays here, or just visits between escaping.

Dear Maidstoned Eagle
Your good self is so right, "Serious", no laughing matter. Debilitating,painful ,the tenderness and the inflammation.To many on here I am "Runt of the litter" and they despise me, trust me I would not wish this on any of them, not a single one. I don't hate them and I forgive them for all their verbal attacks, life is too short for hatrid.
Regards
Trolley

Best wishes Trolley, hope you have a better day today. Perhaps stay off the old keyboard for a bit if it triggers your pain.

Mountaineering. It's just climbing up big things isn't it? Something I grew out of when I was about 11. Pointless waste of time, get a proper hobby like train spotting.

Bipe, kindly asked you to stay away from the keyboards and pick up train spotting :)

I wish you'd stop whining about this dog.

Because he doesn't exist.

He obviously does, he's posting.....or did the bbs invented AI twenty years ago?

No wonder Dave isn't here anymore, he's on his island in the South East China seas living off the proceeds.

Ah, Descartes "I post therefore I am" ?


One of the problems with the cogito has always been that it presumes the pre-existence of consciousness. Once might say "there is thinking, therefore something is", but the use of the perpendicular pronoun is pure assumption.


Or in other words, no ; someone is posting does not mean that Trolley is posting or therefore exists.

A message my good self received from a poster on the "Good Ship BBS" all those years ago :

"I would like to add, as I have stated here already a few years back, that I believe that I saw Trolley in the flesh. It was at the pre-season friendly match against Whyteleafe a few years ago.

I saw a chap at the conclusion of the match that I thought looked just like I imagined Trolley to look so I sent Trolley a PM asking if he was at the game etc, and he sent me a reply which stated where he was and what he looked like BEFORE I gave him any description and a placement, this is enough for me to believe he is a real, genuine person "

Kind regards

Yup I donít understand why so many are attracted by odds of 1 in 14M or whatever it is.

Since they added the extra numbers it has increased to 1 in 45m. (Apparently the odds of winning the Irish Lottery are about 1 in 11m.)
