  1. Paramedic to a 78 year old who they've just informed they (the 78 year old) have broken thier hip:-


    'You're going to have to get yourself up, we'll help, but we can't lift you as we have to look after our backs'.


    There is more to this story but right now I need to calm down.


    This was after waiting an hour for said paramedics, after we had broken a window to get to the dead bolt (front and back door have dead bolts, so keys were useless), to unlock the back door. I even helped carry the stretcher into the house as the paramedic struggled to get it up the front step.


    So, yeah. *suitcase* evening and after waiting four hours in the hospital, still haven't been seen by a doctor.

  2. Got smacked for customs three separate times this month, including on one package which turned out to be a Christmas present.


    Also, found out that Parcelforce now charge £11.25 for their 'handling fee' instead of £8 like they used to. Fantastic.

    I noticed the price hike last year. It seems that other companies are raising their prices with inflation, while parcel force seems to up it at a higher percentage.

  3. Car needs new brake pads (wifes car, I went as I needed a quote for my dad's Citroën Picasso), mechanic recognises me as the bloke who stood up for his son (in a pub). Free brake pads.


    Sometimes it pays (in a round about way) to be decent.


    Also, got a refund on an eBay item that was damaged in transit. Seller was very understanding and thanked me for the pictures.


    I've got a feeling Friday might be different. . .

  4. The usual , is the jing Jong worth the money or is the asg better value (when on a budget). Then what upgrades to avoid (been done the route of upgrading when I really didn't need to). For perspective I just want a skirmish-able aeg Aug that's alright (not fantastic just alright).


    Sorry to say I don't have a 3d printer (though I keep looking at a few models and drooling).

  5. Fired just before Christmas, that is *fruitcage*ering low (it's low all year round, but during a season that is known for having a depressing effect on some, is pretty *suitcasey*).


    Broke a mag release on my glock 19. Well, it's just the spring so not all bad, but *fruitcage* annoying seeing as I just fixed the leak in the mag.

  6. It's an odd thing to say, but holding things in can be extremely damaging long term. But, and this is the crux of it, it can be really hard to say how we feel. It's not a weakness, though it can make us weak.


    I've had some of my best conversations online for different reasons. Same with going to an airsoft field for the first time and being able to strike up a conversation with complete strangers. I find this hobby (from personal experience) to be less 'serious' than some of my other hobbies.


    Hedge, if you're about Christmas day or boxing day and need to blow off some steam, feel free to pm me. I can bug you for Aug info.

  7. Who ever said most thieves were intelligent? Now, the thieves who plan and wait, thier the *fruitcage*ers that are scary. Scum don't care, they do what ever they want. That's why when a few get caught red handed and get the van treatment, no-one sheds a tear.


    Always wirery little *fruitcage*ers too.

  8. It's not actually, there has been a few robberies were they only take valuables out of cars. Happened to my wife's car a few months ago (they stole her laptop and a charger). They are able to open the car up, rob what they can and then leave. All types of car makes (old and new). They thieves have a 'device' that ends out multiple signals to try and unlock a car. They just wait for lights to flash and that's thier que.


    Less hassle, maximum scumness.

  9. Don't mind a Christmas work party, as people always drift off into groups of people they get on with. Always had a laugh to be honest. Rare to have an open bar though and always left around 11 if it wasn't at a hotel in the middle of nowhere (or miles and miles from home).


    But, and it's a big but mind, people who I didn't get along with in work I always avoided when at the Christmas party. I can be quite good at disappearing if the need arrives.


    Gripe of the day: thinking you've got enough of 'x' material, then you start to build and find you don't. Doh. Also, people who force thier views on others. Let it go. If the other person doesn't like something you do, so what. Move on. You're coming across as a colossal *beep* and ruining the ale.

  10. I had to give up my dream house for the one I live in now. The one I wanted had a huge basement, as in a one bedroom flat huge. It had four bedrooms that were all large (two in the loft as it was an old victoriana style house) and two bathrooms, plus a downstairs toilet with a walking shower. It needed working doing to it (all cosmetic and nothing major). The problem was it was in a slightly odd area (right next to an industrial estate), the nearest school was ages away and no shops within 15 minute walking distance.


    It was brilliant though. But, the garden did need major work doing to it and no garage (oddly). I am glad I didn't go for it as it wouldn't have been fair on the children (what with no park near by and the area was a little rough). Also, where I am now, I am five minutes from three pubs, ten minutes from a further 6 pubs and three restaurants (two pubs do food as well). Loads of shops too and a decent bus service. Suppose the point I'm trying to make is it's not just the house, it's the area and what you want/need from the area you want to live in.


    Bit heavy for a (Warhammer) Wednesday night.
