I don't like ripping a rear bumper off and smashing the rear lights on a works truck this morning! 😡

 

Reversing out of a gate like I've done literally hundreds of times and forgot about a height barrier support pole that's been there for years! 

 

Looks worse than it is, just REALLY peed off with myself over it! 

 

Before anyone asks, No, I won't be posting a photo.

dont like being woken up early while on my mini break im tenerife. at 6am i was woken by a scratching sound , ignored it but after 10 mins the scratching turned to banging. it was coming from my hotel  room door. i thought some drunk got the wrong room. opened the door and was about to say go away/wrong room. 

but opened the door and a very naked twenty something girl pushed past me and into the bathroom. she sat in the bath. wasnt coherant at all. i said she in the wrong room . nothing. asked what room she should be in. nothing. left her in bath and rang reception to take her away. 

once i did that she had got back up and was going back out into the corridor. i asked her if she knew what room she was from then she knew. saw her boyfriend looking for her. phew!! 

think she was sleep walking as she was aware of her souroundings afterwards. looked a bit embarased with one of my towels around her.

I don't like having reached an age where I can't read fine print/small detail...and can't seem to 'pinch & zoom' real life. :unsure:

Looking for a cheap magnifying glass on eBay and came across some that look like a credit card.  Do they work?  Or do you really need the glass thickness to get a clear, magnified image?

Tom, they are OK if you want to keep an 'emergency' one in your wallet, however, in a home environment, go for a big proper one, preferably one with an additional cyclops section in it for real close up., I have 4 x scattered around the place LOL

Now, why doesn't that surprise me! :biggrin:  Can't seem to find any with the cyclops on ebay but will buy a proper one instead of the card type. :smile:

My Nan used to use one everyday as well. Same one for at least 25 years!

Get your eyes tested is a good point said.You might be consuming too much sugar.Just a thought 👍

Or not consuming enough carrots maybe? :biggrin: 

I do need an eye test but it's just not possible at the moment.  Other mental & physical health issues have rendered me basically housebound for the last few months, as well as unable to deal with people at all, so a home visit isn't possible either.  Starting to manage a short walk, alone, outside again this month but right now I have no idea whether I'll be able to drive again, or deal with people, let alone do both of those together!  

Ironically, I was refused mental treatment in late 2019, when I desperately needed it in order to have the physical issues sorted before they got any worse.   Was refused partly because 'you obviously can't be that bad if you can drive'... :rolleyes:  Now I'm refused treatment for everything because I can't get anywhere.  Couldn't make it up really but that's the way it is unfortunately.  :unsure:

I don't like having to stay home an extra day! Was meant to be going away today for a couple of nights down to Inverness but weather conditions dictated otherwise!

 

Lost a nights Airbnb as well 🙄🤷

There are very few people in the UK who could say 'down to Inverness' and be correct !!! 🤣

Yep, I have thought that before! 😀

I even think sometimes whenever I mention Inverness how many folk Google it to see where it is! 🤔

For a number of years I used to service/repair the electronics on oilrig supply ships in Aberdeen, sometimes there and back in a day. Only 7 hours each way. Then one day I had to sail with the ship from Aberdeen to Inverness.  I didn't know it was possible to go that far north without falling off the edge of the world 🤣

I really do not like people who turn left, initially taking a swerve right so they can get a seemingly better angle! Modern car steering lock can easily handle a 90 degree turn without bumping a wheel on the kerb, really p*sses me off!

It's probably been covered before, but I really hate people that don't indicate at a roundabout. You're sitting there waiting to go, and people who you think are going straight on are actually turning left, but you don't know because they are too damn selfish to care about anyone but themselves. Really boils my p*ss 😂

Is it just me (yes I hear everybody say) or is there something wrong with the being able to (a) quote people,  and  (b) on older quotes being able to see who the original poster was ?

Well I can quote...  But it does appear to have lost the name.

Thats intresting Tom. At least you have part of the problem I have.

When I try to highlight text to quote, I no longer get the "Quote" box as I used to. Now all I get is a tiny small black box with what looks like an even smaller white line inside. Clicking on it does nothing.

My computer is running Windows 7 and Firefox

I'm on Windows 10 & Edge.  However it could be partly a browser issue.  I tried to access the forum on a new (to me) Windows 8 laptop yesterday but couldn't...ebay & some other sites worked fine though.  In the end I downloaded Chrome and it worked fine so this forum must be particularly sensitive to browsers.
