Same with flamin hot as well. Ruined.

New and improved, when in any product has that ever worked

Just seen an article summary where the journalist said an activity reminded them of being back in their student days. They graduated three years ago. That's annoyed me for some irrational reason.

Walkers playing around with monster munch. What have they done, different shape, different texture and flavour has lost something.

Leave one of the best crisps alone

I'm still scratching my head as to why Sky Divers had to be discontinued. Those Chutney flavoured crisps....:love:

One of us was being very sensitive. The other wasn't.

You showing off about all your annual leave in comparison to me being a fruit picker was then evidence of how much you don't judge people on their employment?

This has been another great conversation with a drunk boomer.

If you are a fruit picker, Iím bloody impressed. Mate of mine did it and would collapse every night with exhaustion. Loved every minute, come rain or shine stomping about in wellie boots.

You were always Mister Pokey Stick on here. Maz's valet when you double teamed against Alf's pomposity. Keep it up. It often amuses me.

LOL. That is how untrue comments quicky become fact on the BBS.

I reckon that will annoy you when people keep saying it.

How do you like those apples?

Ahhh, the true mark of the bully, deflecting insults onto someone else.

I really couldn't care less Peter whether someone thinks I pick fruit for a living or if they want to use the phrase as a homophobic slur.

I do ok for myself, although I don't do anything particularly noteworthy. Not like reaching the heady heights of being the best, four years in a row, at teaching Spanish speaking students how to ask for directions to the library in English.

Reps AJ 06-06-2021 07:28 PM

At least we now know fruit pickers work hard, nice to know someone is

:) sorry I didnít bother fact check by reading back in the thread. It was a genuine comment. Can we get back to normal here now please I and just have posts of things that annoy ?

PeterH 06-06-2021 07:37 PM

People trying to rerail threads.

I've tried putting it all back how I like it to no avail.

I was contemplating restoring the computer to a restore date but I fear it won't effect Firefox.

Wankers!

It's even messed with how I view this BBS... silly little things, but change none the less.

There is a link here amongst the advice, to enable you to downgrade to the previous version.
