A colleague's incredulous reaction when I told her my age and her telling me I look about 28. I'm 39. Always nice to hear something like that

As Billy Connolly once said, if anyone ever asks your age, always go ten years higher. That way, they'll ALWAYS say that you look great...

Yep - came back and found "real work" in the NHS. Which means I'm living the Peter Gibbons-esque lifestyle.

Could be worse!

"Real Work"

I've re-read this phrase a few times and... Nope! This means nothing to me.

Doing a bit of bored can't-be-arsed channel hopping and finding out that Biloxi Blues is about to start. Lovely.

My daughter passed her driving test theory exam. She's well chuffed, although as I reminded her, she revised more for this than she did her GCSE's.

Going on my Facebook account, looking through a whole load of 'friends', remembering how I was so good to them when they were going through bad times, yet noticing how little they bother with me when I'm not doing so well... and 'unfriending' the cunts. Ditto, taking their numbers out of my phone.

Feels like a breeze of cool air through my brain.

Ran into an old friend who I used to work with... haven't seen him in 7 or 8 years... but we picked things up like it was just yesterday.

Plus, we popped into the nearest pub and he paid for the drinks, seeing how as I'm a bit broke nowadays...

My last post was about old 'friends' letting you down, but today gave me a little bit of faith back in the people who you knew in the past...

I'll keep an eye out for the What's pissed you off" thread if it turns out they were one of the ones you deleted on facebook

The reporter on C4 news asking Tony Blair, "Mr Blair! As the middle east peace envoy shouldn't you be in Gaza? Mr Blair! Why are you in London rather than Gaza?" It was the look Blair gave him which was withering to say the least (as he ignored the question and walked away on his way to make a speech to a think tank/pressure group).

I installed the Cloud to Butt extension on Google Chrome, and I keep forgetting about it until I suddenly read the word "Butt" randomly inserted into totally innocent sentences.

I know it's childish

My daughter passed her driving test theory exam.


..and she's since passed her test.

This morning I agreed to meet her at the petrol station so she could fill her car up (yes, I paid )
Anyway, as I sat waiting for her, she drove onto the forecourt, mounted the kerb around the pump, knocked the plastic watering can flying and crashed back down the kerb (causing the other people to stop and stare)

"Hi Daddy" she beamed at me.
"Hi sweetie" I replied, "how did you get on?" (meaning her trip from home)
"Oh fine" she said "no problems"
"Ok" I said, looking at the upended watering can spilling water everywhere.
"Oh.....that" she smiled "I just got a bit close"

Did you also pay some sort of, let's say, special gratuity on top of the usual fee for your daughter's driving exam or something?

Ha! No.
Truth be told, I didn't want her to pass, and I told her so too. Yes, I am a right cunt sometimes. I am fearful of them on the road.
I spend a lot of time driving and I can accurately reveal that 98.7% of drivers HAVE NOT GOT A FUCKING CLUE.

The question is she one of the 1.3%?

After a long period of unemployment, I finally managed to get a new job... started on Monday, was immediately intimidated by how complicated this stuff was and was worrying if I would measure up...

End of the week and they're happy with me, despite the fact that I spent much of the week thinking 'WTF am I doing...?'

And if this wasn't good enough, a friend sent me a brilliant present through the post...

Today is a good day.

We had a fire today at work. Not a big fire, a small electrical fire, but nonetheless quite dangerous and concerning. As we were in the processes of evacuating the building I came across a group of customers who seemed puzzled about what I wanted them to do. So puzzled they continued to sit there and munch on their food whilst behind me there was a distinct smell, burning embers and people moving very quickly towards the exits. These people continued on regardless, despite my very clear explanation that we had a fire and we needed to evacuate. This may sound utterly terrible and I apologise in advance if it does but to scope the numbness of these people I actually had a group of mentally disabled young people too, who were able to figure out the process for themselves, without the aid of their carers, ahead of and with far more willingness than these 30+ people I found myself facing.

But even in those moments of ensuing slight fear, panic and trepidation all I could think of was Fawlty Towers! This job has been bearable due to a very decent boss and a unique working environment (I won't say where I work, I don't like too online, but it's not atypical of what you might think it is) but I'm moving on to start a job I've wanted for a long time in three weeks, which has better pay, conditions, advancement, challenges etc. etc. etc. I finish this current job on Monday and in that moment today all I could think of was going all Basil and Manuel on the situation.... "Fire....Fire....Fffffffffffff........FIREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! FIREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! EVERYBODY OUTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!"

I almost had to fight back the urge!!

It brought a massive smile to my face in the most bizarre of situations. And then when I finally did get these gormless sacks of oxygen outside and to relative safety, if one of them didn't manage to walk out in front of any cars in the process, I wanted so badly to turn around and say -

"I don't know why we bother. We should let you all burn."

It brought a huge grin to my face in the most bizarre of situations. I was also tickled by the mum who thought that bringing her child's dinner plate out with her was almost as important as bringing her child. Actually I wasn't amused as much as slightly fucking appalled, but that's too serious for this thread so I'll leave it there!
