I went to pick my 87 year old Dad from the doctors surgery, he'd had a lengthy appointment. There was nowhere to park, so l left my car blocking the doctors car park and popped in to ask the receptionist would he be much longer, or were they running late? I have come to pick him up, but there is nowhere to park.

I can't tell you that, she said. Patient confidentiality.

WTF? I didn't want to know the details of his treatment, I only wanted to come to take him home.

I didn't want to upset my Dad so I didn't say anything, but I felt like saying well give him a message that he has lost his lift home. She told me I could take a seat in the waiting room. What good is that when I can't leave my car? Besides, I didn't fancy sitting there listening to people coughing and snotting all over the place and coming home with a cold, or worse.

That really gave me the hump, and I have realised that I'm well on the way to being a miserable old git.

Probably good advice. The wife is a hoarder of clothes, shoes and bags. The kids of toys and games, and me of diy tools and electrical stuff.

The type of coach who probably favoured strength, therefore selecting the physically bigger kids and did little to encourage the skilful ones?

Seen that loads of times and it tends to lead to old style Wimbledonesque football, especially as there's no offside at that age group.

I've often wondered whether shorter players such as Iniesta or Messi would have made it in English footie.

We've found other coaches with different approaches, so do shop around. But it's v frustrating when a school coach is like that, as you're stuck with them for a while at least.

http://patient.info/doctor/paracetamol-poisoning

In the UK it is the most common agent of intentional self harm. Between 2000-2008 there were 90-155 deaths from paracetamol poisoning every year.[1] In addition, there are deaths resulting from paracetamol compounds. It is the most common cause of acute liver failure (ALF).

Fair enough I suppose!

In the UK it is the most common agent of intentional self harm. Between 2000-2008 there were 90-155 deaths from paracetamol poisoning every year.[1] In addition, there are deaths resulting from paracetamol compounds. It is the most common cause of acute liver failure (ALF).

Fair enough I suppose!
:eek:

What would be interesting to know, is whether the purchasing restrictions have made any reduction to the number deaths? They've been in place for a few years.

As the other poster said, if you're determined you can just go in different shops.
