  1. I was, as usual, being facetious. But you knew that. It is good that people are thinking about their health. I don't tend to worry until something crops up. When it does, I go to the quack.
  2. Where is this 'gym' you keep talking about? And what is this 'fitness' you are obsessed with? Is any of this catching? Can I get a jab (pun intended) for it?
  3. You need to keep an eye on the sites it is connecting to. It could give a whole new meaning to 'washing your dirty laundry in public'. ☺
  4. Welcome back. (Mind you, my post referred to January 2018 which means you're a year late ☺. Yes, I did go back and check. I am that nerdy!)
  5. Good luck! Do your research - things change massively over 25 years. What constitutes a good CV in your field these days? What questions might they ask at interview? There is lots of advice online, check it out. I repeat, Good luck!
  6. Serves you right for buying inferior Swinton merchandise. New Year, same sh*t. Happy New Year.?
  7. Ha! I remember the 50s. Our family GP, Doc Murphy, used to smoke a pipe. The waiting room was bad enough, but stepping into his surgery must have taken a year off my life every time.
  8. You should know better than to let her loose with your platinum credit card! ?
  9. You know what they say about civil servants? They are rarely civil and rarely serve. Joking aside, well done and good luck.
  10. Or, perish the thought, we just can't work out where to begin with your shortcomings? ? NB. I am only kidding. Merry Christmas!
  11. Guilty as charged, Your Honour! I am the archetypal inverse snob. Why do you think I support Salford? Oh, and less of the "boy". "old" I cannot deny, but "boy"! You make me sound like a slave on your plantation! Yes baas!
  12. I'm ###### at job interviews. The last one I did, I wouldn't have employed me! I was totally unprepared, believing that nearly 40 years' experience would allow me to wing it. No chance! Even a cursory internet search would have prepared me for the questions they asked - still wouldn't have got me the job, though! The one I felt really sorry for was the other candidate (yes, only two of us!), who was a young woman, fresh from college and desperate to find a job back in her home town. She didn't get it, either. They chose to readvertise. How bad can you get? We'd rather go through the time and expense of readvertising than give you the job! Anyway, I'm sitting here at my computer, arsing about on a RL forum, sipping whisky, having just wrapped up for a fortnight's holiday after being told I actually have an extra day off - we don't restart until Tuesday 8th Jan - who won, me or the school? I still feel sorry for the young lass, though. Hope she found a job.
  13. Your socialist credentials just crashed. Waitrose? Dear oh dear. ?
  14. I know you are, bleep. I was just pulling your leg. It is nice when people give something back.
  15. Perhaps you are just doing it for some company? Or a change of routine? Or just because you are a nice person? (That last one can't be right, says the Salford fan in me.?)
  16. As an erstwhile Man City fan, can I just say how sorry I am for him? On a serious note, the knives came out for him last season, yet they actually finished second to City, iirc. There was not much more he could have done. PS. I lied. I'm not really sorry.?
  17. You hope who got out alive - the people in the car or the ABC reorters?
  18. It sounds like you're facing a tough time, timtum. Good luck. Don't forget to make some time for yourself.
  19. Yes, it is bloody awful. A pal of mine hanged himself in 2013 and I had spoken with him a few weeks before. I couldn't help thinking, "If only I'd known, if only I'd spent a few more minutes chatting with him." Daft, of course. It's a sad time though, and no one knows what is going on his mind. Hopefully, things will improve.
  20. Sorry, Bob. I'm forgetting my manners. Congratulations!
  21. While the brexiteers appear to be vacant. Anyone got a penny?
  22. Totally agree. They've banned tobacco advertising in sport. They've banned alcohol advertising in sport. It's high time gambling advertising went the same way. It's insidious, it's ubiquitous and it is dangerous with addiction now affecting even children.
