mothers coming to trade shows with you, i just went to crusade and my mum couldn't wait to get out and go to woolworths

I would have told her to have a look round town whilst I went into the show...! :wink:

she had to drive me there and there were not really many shops near by, cardiff centre was a very long walk away. Plus she insited on coming in because my dad was going too and she had to keep him in check, from spending too much,

because someone might have an allergic reaction to elastoplast. :blink:

my brothers allegic to elastoplast, gives him an ezema type rash.

My point is, if you are allergic to the adhesive, you won't use the elastoplast. So there is no need to remove it from the first aid kit, which, for everybody else, is bloody inconvenient. Literally.

It's also inconvenient if you suddenly discover that you are alergic to plasters that use a different adhesive to the ones you use at home...that is why they remove them from the kits so that they are not pursued through the courts.

Mind you, I'd rather have a reaction to a plaster than have blood p**sing out everywhere!

tap your brakes or slow down to 10mph less than the speed limit  (the latter is in the highway code to allow them to overtake but is good fun in traffic as they go mental and can do nothing about it) or if you are stationary stick it in reverse.  I drive up to 800 miles per week so I meet a lot of pondlife on the roads.

I work at tescos, on the checkouts (ugh). anway i hate -

People who when i say hi they reply with you can start packing, no sign of a "please"

Ignorant asians, nothing against asians but 90% of the ones who shop at tescos are ignorant even the asian guys and women i work with think this. they dont talk to you, they just tell you do stuff or hold the other 9 customers up in your queue by standing there whilst you scan a 100 pound shop and then spend 10mins packing it or start messing around with vouchers or their card (even though they have been stood in the queue for 3mins). or complain that prices are wrong even thought its fuuking obvious they have label swapped on items.

People who dont speak a word of english and look at you like your werid.

I too work at Tesco, as a GA stacking shelves. And I hate so many things about it that I would require an entire week merely to write them out. My particular bugbear is people reaching over you on tip-toes when you're working on low shelves and dislodging stuff onto your head, without so much as a word of apology. Just ask me to move or wait, I'd much prefer that to the concussion induced by 4 pints of full fat milk dropping on my noggin.
Oh... and Grannies who attempt to shear off your legs at the knee with their wire baskets and then yell at you for being in their way.
And... no I'll stop there.

Maybe what you mean is James that there are lots of ignorant people out there - regardless of race etc. Having had long experience of waiting in queues at Tescos (!) I know that anyone can stop to look for vouchers etc even though they have stood there whilst the shopping is scanned. Hell, I've even done it myself!!  But I wouldn't say I was ignorant..... :wink:

A quick suggestion.  Move to nightshift, no customers your own music and you can actually not get p***ed off by working at a super market.  This is coming from a Sainsburys employee so it might not work but its an idea.

Mind you, I'd rather have a reaction to a plaster than have blood p**sing out everywhere!

Naa, I just use Sally and Andy's trick of adding super glue to the cut.  Only problem is my Heresy superglue seems to be running out rather fast :lol:

No, Heresy superglue was invented for sticking metal together, not wasting time and important glue by sticking my flesh back together.  What a waste, just think of the number of Netherlords I could have stuck together with that glue  8:::

Just a quick note...

"Is it safe to use ordinary household cyanoacrylate glue as a medical glue?

According to Reference 7, most cyanoacrylate glues not designed specifically for medical use are formulated from methyl-2-cyanoacrylate, since it produces the strongest bond. Not only can such glues irritate the skin, during polymerization they can generate significant heat, to the point of causing skin burns. I gather this is a problem only if a large area of skin is affected. But to err on the side of safety, you should <snip> only use medically-approved glue, not the ordinary kind."

 :wink:

debt companies that give you cases to pursue through the courts but provide you with none of the relevant info to base a legal case on.

i have to spend x amount of time drafting up their evidence and then have it pulled to pieces when i find that either :

1. none of their evidence exists

or

2. it wasn't what they said but they tell me they've already provided me with exactly what happened 9which they clearly haven't because i keep probing for answers on it!)

The heat effect is what I use to tell me when I've spilt superglue on my hand!

A great trick for those that don't know, superglue will also bond with water - so for those occasional large spills on the hands, water first helps with the heat, then it forms the superglue into a nice shell that is easily peeled off.  Of course, try not to spill superglue in the first place, but I know we've all done it ... ;)

yeah keep your color we like it with a u "colour" and keep your "Z" in the middle of words, we like our "S" in our civilisation, it is Sation all the way not Zation, and my mum is alway mum or maybe mam (if i'm in wales) never mom, shes mummy not mommy (but no bandages anywhere)

oh and lastly we wear pants under our trousers or trews in scotland, and shorts in summer not short pants. Oh it's a dummy a baby sucks on and they wear nappys.  :whistle:  :shrug:

 :blink:

so sorry for the rant, i mean no harm. just i speak to some american friends and they never know what your talking about or say you spell it wrong. i mean one day i was speaking to an american girl about a female friend, i said my friend had a very nice horse (meaning her pet horse) she thought i meant she had a lovely something else :silly
