Wouldn't that be scabby left elbow (and right elbow, both knees, etc)?

Well yes, but eventually the scabs fall get picked off, and you're left with an assortment of mild scars and an elbow that occasionally does stabby things without warning when you lean on it at the wrong angle.

Stabby left el-bow here as well, and I don't either tennis or golf, just 65km today. Will have to consult with mrsED's relevant exercise sheets

I think you might be exaggerating barakta, I’m sure there’s some part of your body that isn’t borked to fuckery. You just need to focus on that bit.


Ok, ok, I’m going.  :facepalm:

Not with those tyres ;D  Not to mention the trails* being too far away and at the top of a hill.

Until recently, the go-to body part was knees.  Which were generally my department aches-and-pains wise.

I was recently told by one of the carers that I make "dad noises" when I stand up, I attribute that to tired (if not yet fully borked) everything

I’ve not been able to select large paper handkerchiefs in my Tesco online shop for the last 3 months, neither Kleenex nor own brand. Only “original” half size ones.  >:(

Ah, Vodafone support. A small broadband issue - we lost it for 2 hours yesterday evening, it’s back but the sync speed is showing as 53mbs instead of the (guaranteed) 72+. So I start a chat, go through some stuff, and its escalated to 2nd line, and I’m asked when I’d like to be contacted. “After 5pm” says I. Just had lunch, checked phone (on silent), yep, 2 missed calls from Vodafone  :(. Then a text with a reference number. Call them back, reference number entered - “I’m sorry, that number isn’t recognised”  >:( >:(.  And then, when I do get through after repeated pressing of 1, I’m in the very busy queue. Gave up after 20 minutes on hold.

Because the molishers of shitverts care about you being able to hear them.  Preferably from another room.

I run a busy multi franchise and multi site parts department with around a dozen engineers and trade and retail sales

I keep good records and can generally find things we've discussed but have a couple of techs who ring me and just assume they're the only person I deal with, start spurting details at me ignoring the fact I've probably just put the phone down or replying to an email and what really gets me is they think I always know off the top of my head something they had several months back

Yes they may know their customer site inside out but I can't know all of them

This is close to being a full on rant.

I've just finished sitting through the entire TMS broadcast on BBC Sounds for the last day of the last test, and it cuts off four overs from the end !!
