“Do you have an account” no I want to walk in and pay for it. My credit card is linked to Apple Pay so I can pay to its credit limit and I have my phone with me all the time.
I don’t want an account just give me reasonable discount for paying for it there and then and let’s be done.

Oh and the local engineering spot that gives worse discount when paying for it there and then vs using an account. That’s why I use bearingboys online now
I firmly believe that people who pay upfront should get the better discount ,but it rarely happens ,

People who leave grease guns empty are lower on the social scale than child molesters ! Grumpy morning rant ! We have three Milwaukee cordless grease guns and each one was empty this morning ! Nobody seemed tho be using them last apparently !

This sort of thing is a PITA.

View attachment 897234

A question for sheep experts - will that sheep come into the yards on her own to allow herself to be caught and the bucket removed?

Or will you have to get her and the other 400 sheep in that field in to allow you to catch her and take the bucket off its' head?

You already know the answer.....
It's more exciting when the head gets stuck IN the bucket. The chase around the field is a Benny Hill sketch.

I was feeding cattle years ago and one impatient youngster got his horns in the metal field gate, lifted it off the hinges and took off round the field with it at the gallop. Took some calming down.

People who live somewhere different to where they grew up or where there family is from and constantly talk about it and how it makes them this and that. Feck off back there if it’s that good!
I was born and grew up initially in Benghazi, Libya. Don't feel the need to talk about it much...

Just takes me longer than anyone else to go through immigration.

When you're just in the middle of fixing something fiddly and someone not makes you jump causing you to drop/fumble/let ping a tiny bolt/nut/spring but then after saying you'd be free to work on the machine asks you to go do something else. When you get back you forget the bit you lost, find someone had kicked on knocked the tray flying with all the other carefully laid pieces which then leads them to ask what's taken so long to put it back together.

They got the seal kit to replace the leaky top seals of a lucas CAV pump I'm nervous of doing it for that reason, I'll carefully be taking it apart then they'll make me island the little clip on the governor plate will go flying down into the guts of it

Right, I griddled the lions and got settled to join an NSA webinar today. My first webinar ever!

Read confirmatory email, clicked links ---- went to download Zoom app ...

"Your device is is incompatible with this app."

Ok, I'll join by 'phone. Thunderstorm mucked up the landline, so that needs mending.

Go to use mobile. 20 minutes in, the signal fails!

Aaaaaaaargh!!!!!

I’m not very woke, I’m not really sure what woke is, other than a genre of news reports that makes me immediately turn the tv over to DMax to watch Fast and Loud.

But what I have understood about woke is that it’s now not ok to say “coloured person”, fine, I don’t think I’ve ever used that term as people are just people, but the woke have now changed that to “person of colour” which is shoehorned into everything.

It’s just the same words in a different order.

if I was offended by being called a grumpy b@£t@rd, then I think I’d be equally offended by being called a b@£t@rd who is grumpy.

I just don’t get it 🙄

'Griddled the lions' - love it!

That's another expression I'm going to make use of. Forgotten what the first one was now...:scratchhead:

I tried a webinar the other day. Everything worked my end, although not so good for the guy giving the lecture - kept getting close-ups of his chin and up his nostrils, which was a bit distracting. Fell asleep well before the end though, so it was quite rewarding.

Perfectly put!

A flood of euphemisms these days. Keep 'em coming, I say, makes life a deal more fun.

'Elderly people' might have been the first one, a good few years ago, soon replaced by 'senior citizens', although they stopped short of replacing all the road signs again.

Are there any women on TFF who'd prefer to be called 'people with a cervix'? 🤣🤣

I guess that makes the rest of us 'people with a penis'. Hmm.

It always scares me with those where the warning about mics etc comes up that some how the one on my laptop will come on and pickup my shouting at our more senile sheepdog as well as not only my dad's commentary but his soundtrack too :X3:

But at least I was in time for this one and the sheep played ball.

I'm always confused the number of people who call me Richard as though they know me but that's my uncle and I'm not the head of anything :scratchhead:

No that is my sister. I chose the name as I have supported the Packers since I got into watching American Football after listening to an interview with a special teams kicker who grew up not far from us and said he believed the Packers would beat the Steelers in the Superbowl XLV plus I liked the photo in my avatar when I saw it :sorry:

I would say head fixerupperer but if I'm being honest I'd say I'm more a deputy.

Not a hierarchy that goes Boss Boss, Head Boss, Principal Boss, etc, etc, then? :)
