Thought Id start this one going because its rather dead on this board at the moment and I suppose all my usual muckers are either at the Stella tennis event watching Dim Tim (lose again) or at Henly Regatta eating cucumber sandwiches (they wish,...NOT).

Anyway please feel free to just talk to yourself blast away and let it go on any company or subject you wish. Just wish Id thought of this one before.

cheers GF.

I very carefully avoided mentioning my mistakes. Such as MKS (in at 590), BRY (in at 90), LUFC (in at 4), YOO (in at 13). I'm only a tiny little investor, playing for fun. the bloody spreads and dealing costs mean I need 10 baggers just to break even. Calm down dear, It's only a commercial!!

Alan your definately a sandwich short of a picnic !

hewittalan6 - 10 Jun 2005 11:05 - 36 of 81399

Picnic. Yeah thats another one I lost money on. the plan was the marketing of security devices for builders tools. Liam Neeson was the major shareholder as I recall, but he sold out to Robert Maxwell and It all went downhill from there!!

Mitch Allen the man who wrote the Hokey Cokey has died at his home in Texas aged 86,
the funeral was going to plan until they went to put him in the coffin,
they put his left leg in,,, and then all hell broke loose....

hewittalan6 - 10 Jun 2005 11:16 - 38 of 81399

Had to bury him though cos he died of asbestosis and it took them 47 attempts to cremate the poor bugger.

goldfinger - 10 Jun 2005 11:39 - 39 of 81399

Just thinking to myself its not a bad day at all today, everything seems on the up. Think Ill go for a few pints and a relaxing afternoon on my locals sun lounges.

Hope it doesnt turn into an all day sesh like it did last friday, her indoors wont be speaking to me for another week.......... then again that may be a good idea.

cheers me.

Why are large companies unable to give accurate delivery slots - why am i wasting a day sitting waiting for Comet to a deliver a washing machine - why isnt the managing agent doing it? When they do turn up, will they bring the right one, will they plumb it in properly, what damage will they cause?

rant over

bosley - 10 Jun 2005 13:40 - 41 of 81399

i suppose, like all of lifes big mysteries, the reality just never lives upto the dream . level 2. heard sooo much about it. got really excited when i saw the free trial. signed up and...... IS THAT IT???? them 2 boxes there???? am i missing something?

ps, terminal is cool!

mickeyskint - 10 Jun 2005 14:11 - 42 of 81399

I hope you have more luck with Comet than I had Fundy. I ordered a Dyson and on the day of delivery it did'nt show up. A month later after many heated phone calls, I cancelled the order. What I didn't realise was that they had debited my card as soon as I placed the order. It took another month to get my money back. No letter of apology, nothing. The missus was very upset as it was her birthday present. So I bought her a new iron instead. What a generous bloke I am.


bosley - 10 Jun 2005 14:20 - 43 of 81399

mickey, your kind-hearted generosity to your missus nearly brought a tear to my eye!! i hope she realises how special you are..... i bought my missus some new pans for her birthday. she was so overcome with emotion she started crying. she knows she's a lucky gal!!!! depending on how successful my investments are , i may treat her to a new set of utensils for christmas.

mickeyskint - 10 Jun 2005 14:27 - 44 of 81399

A man after me own heart Bosley. We're such a good catch.


hewittalan6 - 10 Jun 2005 15:00 - 45 of 81399

My Missus has just smashed all the kitchen up!!! Can't understand it cos shes been happy in there for the last 20 years! Women, eh?

Fundamentalist - 10 Jun 2005 15:20 - 46 of 81399


would never have bought from Comet - it was the landlord that did!!!! and i have to suffer the consequences. Id have collected it if it allowed but no such option.

Good to hear how well you all treat your other halves - might have to get mine to have a read

mickeyskint - 10 Jun 2005 15:38 - 47 of 81399

I'm a coward really Fundy. If I were to say it to her face I'd get a wack with the frying pan. When I'm sitting in front of the tele with my feet up watching the footie and I hear the hoover going I think to myself "What a diamond" and I say "Get us another Stella from the fridge sweet heart, I don't want to miss anything". She replies in old english "Go forth and multiply". You just can't get the staff these days.


jimmy b - 10 Jun 2005 15:50 - 48 of 81399

You've done something wrong there mickey, most women get married in white, because most domestic appliances come in white..

Fundamentalist - 10 Jun 2005 16:10 - 49 of 81399


just heard that comet will not be delivering today!!!!

theyve asked if they can deliver between 9 and 5 tomorrow and couldnt understand when i explained that theyd screwed up my friday and werent going to do the same to my saturday

time to go to the pub to de-stress

mickeyskint - 10 Jun 2005 16:18 - 50 of 81399

Wait for me!!


driver - 11 Jun 2005 20:32 - 51 of 81399

I just bought an iron for the missus half price in Argos 25, its the third iron in two years, they don't make um like they use to. Its me birthday Monday, I wouldnt fancy an iron, I hinted a new scanner lets see what happens. Guesses to my age, nearest gets a Postman Pat pic dedicated to them on this thread.
