    I do indeed.

    I get this disgusting varicose vain on my thigh, it’s especially bad when it’s cold and I’m on my feet all day at work which probably doesn’t help. It’s massive and blue and I feel like I’m much too young to have something that gross going on.

    He prodded it with his pen, told me it’ll only be a problem if it bursts (duh), agreed it looked hideous and told me to wear long trousers. He also looked at the eczema on my hand and told me he had the same, demonstrating by scratching skin flakes onto my shoes.

    Filbert lives up north, where most people are coal miners. There's only 3 doctors in total.

    I get it once a year. Time wise always dependant on when you suffer the most which is obvious. Its steroid based so no doubt some can get side effects but I've never had any. I went from simular bouts as yourself but quite frankly it has been a God send for myself. The first year I had it, it was almost instantaneous results. I had a weaker shot then and had to get a boost later that Summer. But from then he just gives me the strongest dose possible. So now I still get the odd sneeze or eye itch but its honestly nothing compared to before. How I never crashed my car during possibly the worst sneezing fit ever made me seek this alternative. No more unbearable sore nose, bloodshot eyes or fatigue is heavenly.

    This sums up a lot of GPs. It annoys me because early prevention of things that could cost the NHS big bucks down the line should really be one of their biggest jobs. And yet if you're under 40 and don't look like you're at deaths door they give you the big shove off. I probably have something I'd want checking out every couple of years but I really try not to bother. You have to pretty much demand things, which they know full well is very un-British.

    Meanwhile if Mrs Miggins aged 80 arrives with her varicose veins you can be your bottom dollar the GP will be on the phone to the receptionist - 'cancel my next five appointments' - so he can have a lovely chat about the war, cats and oh yes, getting that varicose vein sorted.

    But I suppose I was the luckiest one. My brother and sister both developed asthma in their twenties. Resulting in my brother being hospitalised on numerous occasions.

    The Lesta Coalfields extend far and wide. They all have whippets and that Lowry bloke painted magical scenes of the folk there.

    Yes my GP divides his time between shooting lame pit ponies in the head and treating mucky faced nippers, sending them on their way with a pat on the back before given a solemn shake of the head to the child’s widowed mother.

    Well you’ve convinced me. And I’m demanding to see a different GP!

    I know what you mean about somehow not crashing the car, it’s quite frightening when you get an attack of the sneezes doing 60 on a country road!

    Just sharing the extensive knowledge Wuffurd fans have about the World beyond Milton Keynes or as we know it, Winterfell.

    Something I hate has been highlighted recently but the Dom Cummings and George Floyd situations.

    The mentality or attitude of going out of your way to try and find comparable situations to excuse an instance of wrong doing, and believing that therefore makes the wrong doing ok.

    Idiots who think their idiotic behaviour can be excused. I am sure it must make the emergency services tear out their hair.

    Individuals carrying on tombstoning. Others because of the heat deciding to swim in flooded quarries or rivers with the result several have had to be rescued and at least two have died.

    And to top it all when you see the amount of plastic waste in the oceans on land the feral deciding to leave all matter of rubbish because they cannot take it home with them (much of which can be recycled) or find a receptacle to place it in. The state of Cassiobury Park is shocking and I am sure Moog would say the same about Chorleywood Common but this is the case across the entire nation. More than ever it makes me think those with a civic attitude are in decline and the numbers of those who think they can do as they please is on the increase. Not an ounce of consideration for others and the environment.

    It's the Chess Valley for me. People who drive into our village for a nice day out in an area of outstanding natural beauty and then think it's OK to leave a circle of detritus behind, so that the whole beauty that attracted them, is compromised. It's been constant. One of my fellow villagers runs the Chess Association and owns land on the river. He's constantly collecting bag fulls of crap left behind by day trippers. It's beyond infuriating.

    OK, then you should be telling Eddie Hall and Hapthor Bjornsson to kiss your arse.

    Yeah, but whatabout people who find something that isn’t comparable and use that to prove the wrong doing is wrong?

    Canal boat c***s. Had to tell one this week that they were acting like c***s well before this all kicked off so I'm continuing to use them as I have been since the virus started. If they don't like it then float off elsewhere.

    My local Waitrose has a priority queue for NHS workers. All fine for the poor sods who have just done a 12 hour shift on the frontline(although why they can’t shop on their day off the same as non hero people is beyond me). So, I’m queueing in the rain, this woman wanders up, obviously just been for a run, waves her lanyard and jumps the queue. it get’s better, I’ve eventually got in, done my bit of shopping. In the meanwhile, she’s done her weekly shop(on her day off), got back to her car, forgotten something and jumped the queue again.

    Seems petty but I’ve had a guts full of people who do their choice of job that just may be a bit tough at the mo( for a few) and the rest hang on their coat tails and take the p**ss......feeling really grumpy about it and it was cold

    Luckily, shop of the people (volk?) Lidl got rid of all this nonsense ages ago. No priority queues, no stupid arrows, no fuss.

    No need to go that far. Just insist on talking to a different receptionist. After all they are fully medically trained to diagnose your condition over the phone.

    Can’t do anything over the phone with mine. There’s an impenetrable online portal, phone calls to the surgery just result in a healthy dose of sass.

    It was necessary for a while when there was limited food and the most important working people during that time were finishing shift to find not so much as a can of beans.

    Rochdale’s example sounds annoying, but it’s just one person. A bit of jealousy of key workers seems to be creeping in. Is it so damaging to hold some groups in esteem for a while?

    Having trouble deciphering this. Do you mean towpaths were closed and canal boat inhabitants are causing a fuss about you using the towpath?
     
  30. UEA_Hornet

    UEA_Hornet First Team Captain

    Oh yeah, I absolutely agree the priority time was necessary at the peak of the mad shopping dash in April. I think it carrying on into June now stock is stable and anything is in short supply is probably just a PR move by the retailers. And once people start to see it through that lens it becomes counter-productive.

    I am conflicted. Some canal boat dwellers are fine people who just chose a different way of life, which is not compatible with the current restrictions. Others are just feral. The area next to their mooring is a dumping ground and their chimneys are pumping out pure weed smoke when I jog past on the way to Croxley Moor.

    On this, the 85 item limits on click and collect. It means we have to do a top up shop each week.

    True, most of them are really nice people who will gladly have a chat with you. Much like the small minority of dog walkers who don't pick up the cr*p, a very small number have turned me against them as a group. I'm just racist I suppose.

    Not closed, the towpaths are recommended for local use only and joe public was advised to keep off them if possible as it's difficult to keep 2 meters apart in some places. With that in mind I still used them for running, (not for bike rides), and if I came across anyone I'd stop and move as far away as possible when passing. It was common sense, it was safe. It did not stop several, (especially at the start), from claiming complete ownership of the tow paths and enforcing the law of shouting at everyone who passed their boat.
    Ebury Way is an alternative for part of the canal and there were signs put up by some boat owners saying to use that and not the towpath. What they fail to recognise is that parts of Ebury Way are much tighter with no passing points than the canal path. When you point that out you get a torrent of abuse back.
    When people are rude to me in any situation I have a tendancy to fight back, and I was abused as a bike rider on the canal paths for many years previously. Since then I have a complete lack of respect for most canal dwellers due to the actions of a few.
