can't they/you take your flask with you and stop freeloading?

:p

I actually always offer tea/coffee/juice/biscuits to workmen, although had I known the poor level of workmanship from some, that only becomes apparent months later, I would've offered them cat biscuits and arsenic.

Not specifically (I was thinking about Southwark station) but it happens everywhere. Do they get paid by the amount of crappy free magazines that they get rid of?

This is available at porrnhub.com under the title of 'Cuckold Gas Wanker'.

Whilst on the subject of workmen thanks a bunch to the plumber that poured one shot down my sink today, so haphazardly it has now discoloured it. Anyone who has any ideas of how to clean this off let me know cos I can't

The yanks got hold of it and turned it into a big deal and it kind of got copied over here

Waste of time, and vast sums of money. Sadly now a lot more than just 'trick or treat'.:veryangry

Excellent!

I'll try that approach again when we have another lengthy job next year. I did wonder if they considered us poor hosts for not making it for them, but that wasn't our intention.

Think I'll make extra effort with the biscuit choice though...gotta keep good builders happy!

I'm thinking it's a typo and there should be an i where the o is.

One Shot is Sulphuric acid - If you're not careful it can leave purple coloured stains. I doubt you'll get rid of those unfortunately.

Just remembered I had a seriously innocuous dream involving Phil Neville last night FFS

Liverpool fans today - throwing flares, only singing when they score and nicking Southampton's song.

Fireworks - time for a government to ban them except for displays.

Having to deal with an issue in my building where one tenant was subletting a toilet to another one. Thanks for all the hassle in dealing with that stunning level of grubby pettiness you wanker.

the drexciyan 29-10-2016 09:26 PM

Oh yeah and Palace home form. FFS the most compelling reason to rebuild the ground.
