Steps are an issue for me too. I find up easier than down, which people cannot understand. I am just unsteadier stepping down. Often I get trapped in bus doors trying to get down when the driver has stopped 3 feet from the kerb and is eager to make a quick getaway. Luckily, I have a loud voice, developed from years of berating the likes of Tommy Langley.

Like NHE I find escalators tricky, judging the precise point at which to join the down one.

Wearing my brand new t-shirt I got the first time and getting some olive oil drip on the front of it, as is want to happen when you get old.

Wife tried to clean it with some kind of spot remover, and now I have a white patch where the stain was…. The shirt is sort of pinkish!

She feels bad about it, but to be honest I would have done the same.

Shit happens, but why always to the new shirt, and not the 30 year old one?

Because the 30 year old one was built to last?

Maybe a few old ex-hippies, who went on to make millions on Silicon Valley and Wall St will see you cycling around L.A with your Tye-Dye t-shirt and say, "now there's a dude who never sold out."

Yes, I’m cool with the “stain”.

Just a case of Murphy’s law I guess.

I'm joining the old codgers club too as they are a bloody nightmare for me as well - stairs and escalators.


You've only got to fall down stairs a couple of times, which I have, to regard the things with deep trepidation.

Putting up a new bathroom cabinet, spending ages with the spirit level to make sure it is perfectly straight (which killed my arms), then standing back from it and noticing how wonky it looks because the whole bathroom is not straight (tiles, sink, etc).

Reminds me of one of my great pieces of DIY. Bathroom cabinet all neat all level. Step back look in mirror on front absolutely perfect for shaving. Proudly sends in wife who proclaims wtf have you done that for. I explain its perfect. She explains might be for you at 6' 1" but for me at 5' and the kids even smaller none of us can see in mirror and the kids cannot even reach it to put in tootbrushes.

I was feeling very pleased with myself and thought I had factored in every possible fail scenario... Might have to adjust it to match the wonky sink...

Nope the second one is short as well but learnt lesson. In the bathroom of the new place i have put in an adjustable mirror. Only trouble with that is it knocks the toothbrushes toothpaste off the shelf underneath when i adjust it for shaving. DiY has always been my nemesis.

Summer evenings. Vastly overrated. Nearly 10pm and still not dark. When it’s hot, let’s be honest everyone has had enough by 6pm. Drinking beer in the sun just gives you a headache and most bbq are rubbish, unless there is a tuna steak on the go. Pink or charcoal sausages and burgers, wasps on the dessert, uninspiring and limp salads. Kids up when they should be tucked up in bed. No football, just cricket and Wimbledon where nobody has a clue who the players are outside the top three seeds. 99 percent of people showing far too much of their bodies that is acceptable or appropriate. Give me a lovely long cosy winter evening with dark, warm, sweet beer and stew with dumplings and a jam rolls polly.

I agree, apart from spring and autumn are by far the best seasons and you need to wait until your charcoal is grey before you start to BBQ.[emoji6]

Could post this on the Facebook thread I guess…

Find it annoying that “friends” post cryptic messages on their pages that leave you with questions, and then other “friends” of theirs post equally cryptic messages because they are in the know.

I appreciate you should not blab all over Facebook your problems for all to see, so use the private message or email to tell your close friends… don’t post in code!

I just bought a cheese grater on amazon for £10.95 and they offered me a two year warranty for £1.39. I'm probably more bemused than annoyed tbf.

Having second thoughts now though, maybe I should protect my investment.

Along those lines, I wanted something on Amazon yesterday that cost $5.25. It was going to cost me $5.99 to ship it, so I've given it a serve for now.

In fairness, they also offered a 3 year plan for £1.99. That's where the smart money goes.

JimmyAG 09-06-2022 09:04 PM

My Amazon Firestick packed in, so I returned it for a €2.99 Trade-In + 20% off a new one. The parcel arrived with them the following day, but they didn't process it for another 3 days. When I went to order the new one, the price had just gone back up from €24.99 to €39.99 (a very short 'Summer Offer'!)

It's one of those situations where if it goes wrong the recriminations start. If the worst was to happen, could you still look yourself in the mirror and say "Hello me"?

Hedgehog 10-06-2022 01:29 AM

Done this one before, but when you have your car serviced and they've moved the seats all over the place.

Never seem to be able to get them back where I'm comfortable. Just end up getting used to a new approximation of the old position.

Now I'll give them I'm 6' 2" and the mechanic might be somewhat shorter, but why move the seat up or down and the seat back forward or back and pump up the lumber support...

I guess it's their idea of fun on a hot day...

I barely slept a wink last night worrying about this. Thankfully, a cunning plan arose from sleep deprivation... I bought another of the exact same cheese grater, only this time, with the three year warranty giving me cover for both graters! In your face, amazon!

Which is the winner...

People who buy their food at a drive thru, park up at said drive thru and eat in the car, and then chuck the litter out of the window because they can't be bothered to walk to the bin?

Or people who tip the contents of their overflowing car ashtray out of the window, also often at drive thru's?

One of the best things I’ve ever seen was someone chucking their crap out of a car and my mates brother who was a marine seeing this, stopping his car picking up the rubbish, chasing the prick down for 15 miles. When the offender stopped he walked up to the car, threw the rubbish back in the window and stared “I think you dropped something”.
When the prick got half way out of his car and realised he was bang in trouble, watched him melt and die on the inside.

It was a joy.

I used to pay a **** ton for delivery, which grated (not like cheese) but now we get free delivery and more fillums on the telly box, ooh plus maybe a bit of Palace too.

Still feel a bit dirty though

I was also quite annoyed by Kraft and their sneaky reshaping of the chuncks under some old bollock of "melt in your mouth for more flavour. If shaved a gram off each chunk. Theiving bastards. #costofchocolatecrisis

LIDL (Germany) now charging the same for 500ml of olive oil as they were for 750ml a few weeks ago. Plus they don't bother to update most of the shelf-edge tickets with the new prices/sizes (and only the price at the check-out is the valid one here :grrr:)!

Yeah, always used to be like that in the country - too slow on de-restricted country roads then speed up through the 30mph villages - it's quite mysterious. Also going too slowly on straight roads and speeding up around bends. Maybe this should be in the 'you know you're old when...' thread.

Maybe they were getting confused with Kate's bush, which would be more newsworthy...

Dont forget the main news this week on the website "Sue Barker to retire after Wimbledon" I did not know she was still playing.

Having an operation cancelled due to my GP not following up a request by the Consultant. A day after the Op is cancelled the GP phones up and says i have a letter here from a Consultant wanting me to do some tests? Yes I said the one I was copied into that arrived weeks ago! :veryangry

I've only just recovered from the BBC considering a Missguided (who went into admin) customer not being able to return all the cheap tat she bought online top new as well! They just seem to be giving a platform to the 'look at ME!' merchants with their coverage.

The manufactured sickening sycophantic jubilee 'celebrations' for the most privileged obscenely wealthy and frankly pointless people in society while so many do worthwhile jobs for society and many in the process desperately struggle. Has anyone seen today the ludicrous garter ceremony , a relic of feudal times' honouring of all people Blair who least deserves any recognition whatsoever. .

Sellers on ebay who take your money quick enough but it takes them days to post stuff, especially annoying when I paid extra for faster postage and the barsteward took 3 days to post it :wallbash:

Was out last night with the wife to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, I booked a really nice restaurant that we have been to before, it is not cheap but very good. After being there about 10 minutes a guy and older bloke are seated on the table next to us. He then starts to tell the older guy in his loud annoying voice what a great place this is and how they are going to have a proper good feed up.He was joined by his wife , turned out the older bloke was her Dad and it was his birthday. They were so loud it ruined the evening.

People not using adverbs correct ;) ?

Another thing to blame on the yanks, perhaps they are built different?

People at airports.

When the plane boarding begins loads of twats always rush to the front. The ******* plane isn't going to go without you and you don't get a better sear boarding first :veryangry

People who have to get to the front when the luggage starts coming on the conveyor belt then stand there not even looking as they are texting on their phones!
