    That I failed to fully insert a nasopharyngeal tube into either of my nostrils yesterday. It fair my eyes water, interestingly only one eye at a time. It was part of the first aid course I was doing and I reckoned it was better to practice on a human than on a dummy.* None of the others on the course thought the same and looked horrified in varying degrees.


    *Yes, I know.

    Presumably a patient would not be in a position to object to somebody sticking a tube up his nose.

    The “conversations” I overhear now that I am forced to use public transport more often.
    I heard the story of a night in the cells due to being apprehended shoplifting in Boots. Apparently the delightful youth will not return there again, as that is the second time they have caught him!
    Then there was half of a chat between what I assume was boyfriend and girlfriend... he said “well you had better be there!” Silence while she answered... “well you won’t be late,unless you want slapping again!”
    utterly delightful, and this was on a bus full of people, what must this treasure of British manhood have been like in private!

    Colleagues in humdrum jobs using inappropriate words to give their nonsense more value.

    If I have to hear one more cheeky programmer tell me they have "crafted" something for the "ecosystem" I will fecking chin them. I suppose this is like the old days when everybody used to "engineer" everything. You're not a craftsman, or an engineer and your collection of dopey bullshit isn't an ecosystem.

    Sod that for a game of soldiers! I didn't enjoy shoving tubes up the nose of a dummy head, let alone trying it on myself!

    People who say they "won't swear" but then make it abundantly clear exactly which swear word/s they would have used. Eg

    He called me a C

    They wanted to go out and get P I double S, E, D

    We mentally fill in the gaps so if it was going to cause offence, it still does!

    Where I work you have to talk like this. Apparently it means you're taking your job more seriously and putting more effort in. Adopt their lexicon and you'll instantly have the respect of management.

    People asking what I want for Christmas. It's very generous, but I don't need anything nor want anything. when I tell them this, I get, 'But I have to get you something'.
    'No you don't, honestly'.
    'You like Scotch. I'll get you a bottle'
    'I have loads unopened. No need, but thanks'
    'Stop being awkward. What can I get you?'
    Ad infinitum...

    Even my mum, who's in her late 70's, insists that she has to buy me something.

    Just wish me happy Christmas, pour me a drink and we're all good. Stopping wasting money.

    I'm pretty much the same. I don't know what I want half the time, if I do know what I want half the fun is researching it and buying the best one, extra points if I can find the cheapest one. Then I'll just buy it.
    I do know that I like neither surprises nor waste. I understand that this goes completely against the spirit of Christmas. My only caveat is that I'm quite happy 'wasting' money in a similar way on others.

    I think our lass, over the past year has knitted something for everyone we know, whether they like/want it or not, including myself.
