Quote:One which caused a wry smile the first time I saw it, is "CHECK MIRRORS FOR CYCLISTS". Perhaps I should have pulled over and dismantled the door mirrors, just in case a cyclist had become trapped inside? Wink


I wondered what that screeching sound was, when I pressed the button to fold the mirrors flat.

My Sisters Son started his chemo on Friday.

On the same day our son was admitted for test following the loss of feeling in his right arm, from the scan it appears he has a lump or growth on the spine in the neck region.

A very worrying time for you. I think hearing about things like this always puts one's own problems into perspective.

..............Best Wishes for you and your family!

I have been a victim of this type of thing, several times. It is guaranteed to make me grumpy!

Your lucky to see a Postman, ours only seems to come once a week as were a bit out in the sticks and then when he does turn up he only manages to break the letterbox where he's trying to stuff all the crap we don't want or need in.....

Unsolicited bloody callers!

I've had 5 "Open Line" calls this afternoon after I told some Indian Gentleman (called Tom!) it was none of his business what Washing Machine we had.

I've just been woken up from my afternoon nap to answer to door to tell some young man that we didn't want Anglian to come and give us advice on double glazing (don't they ever bother to look at the houses they visit - its all new DG!)

and our "Green Bin" is groaning under the weight of Junk Mail.

We've tried Mail Peference and the Telephone Preference systems to block all this but they are a total waste of my time as well.

Why can't the buggers just leave us alone - we don't want anything and if we did we would find it ourselves!

And what's going to happen when councils start to charge for bin collections by weight? I vote for invoicing the mailing companies for disposing of the waste for them.

Or we could just put them bac into the post boxes - now that appeals to me, I wonder why I never thought of it before- all that stuff that just comes addressed to "The Occupier" -

What say we agree to a campaign and all do it that would soon stop it!

Where I live cold callers have been banned, not that they were ever a problem for us.

The police are now trying to stop the amounts of junk mail.

They want us all to collect it up then pass it over to them.

The Post office delivers a good 90% of this junk mail Sad

Why are the police involved? It's not a crime. Don't you have muggers & burglars round your way for them to catch? Smile
