Thank feck, the righteous brigade around the village have been doing my nut in.

Lock down isn't making diabetes easy, the temptation to drink and snack for a lot of people in isolation is going to be an issue
Oh do **** off. Plenty of time to exercise, dig out the cookbook and eat heathily.
 
The only ones clapping in my street have been the mid-70's couple over the road. The rest have ignored it

Are we neighbours ?
That's exactly what it's like round here !
I have nothing to do with the tossers. Thank God I live on the edge of the village. Its shockingly cliquey and now they are saying how much closer the village has become and how everyone is talking to each other. Piss off, you just want to know my business so you can gossip about it!

Some of the slappers in our road have been dolling themselves up. Linda around the corner looks like a 160lb marquee sprinkled with glitter…...

Over the last year, our local NHS trust has, during different stays:
1. mislaid my mother for 12 hours by transferring her to another hospital then losing the records
2. infected her with norovirus
3. infected her with COVID, from which she died last week
4. lost her belongings for 7 days

never mind clapping - I wouldn’t piss on it if it were on fire.

I’ve been thinking how I can signal my appreciation of our heroes in a more tangible way than clapping, so I bought a box of biscuits and delivered it to our local hospital, only to find I’d forgotten to take my phone, so couldn’t get a picture of the grateful recipients

What a feckin waste of time and money that turned out to be

Not if you give in to it.
 
Ive not partaken. Have found it a bit like when shore-based and enroute through the base and you hear the tannoy "5 minutes to evening colours / sunset" - your warning to dive inside somewhere or have to stand to attention for a minute. I can imagine it's going to end up like a reverse smoking at a wedding...who will be the last man clapping or...will several thousand people plan to be 'just nipping to the shops' at around 20:00 in 2 weeks time- so they can gauge numbers and whether to look a bit of a dick by being only one of two people on a massive street clapping like seals or...pretend they were out and about anyway...as the rest of the street still look through their windows to laugh and point at whoever succombs!
 
She looks a bit scary.

The first thing that springs to my mind is - **** letting her teeth anywhere near my cock. It's not the biggest tadger in the world - but she'd skin it to half the size with those knashers.

Also her eye's look too far apart - almost like her mum had half human and half cow dna implanted into her eggs before she found out she was up the duff.

The forehead is massive and she looks like a nutter, you know the kind of bird you'd shag once while pissed and the next day she's turned into your own private stalker.

Also she's semi ginger - that's what would put me off shagging her.

On behalf @NSP, and of the balance of probabilities, could I just say...

Just let it slip that you play the piano in a gay brothel. Give them something to whisper about.

When I moved in here the local gossip clique were asking me questions before the removal van was empty. Told them that I was a wildlife conservationist and studied polar bears. When they asked what that was like I just told them the hardest bit was getting it to stand on the large mint* .. but that I now work as a Marine Underwater Fire Fighting diver specialising in seabed oil fires.

They now leave me alone as they realise they aren't going to get any information. Its no coincidence that these nosey gits are the most enthusiastic Thursday night clappers. They also like to keep notes who doesn't clap and then start rumours about them.

* .. for those of a younger age, back in the day Fox's Glacier Mints used a talking polar bear on a huge mint to advertise them.
 
Time for it to fade away. The millions who died in wars across the years are allocated 2 minutes of silence every year and that is appropriate and moving.
When ‘’Clap for Carers’ was first mooted a few months back I posted on one of the Covid threads (God knows which one!) that the Dutch lass needed to work on her tag line - I personally thought it would be laughed out of town and die a death. I should have known better. It was very quickly adopted by the Media and virtue signallers in every town and village across the land and woe betide If you didn’t partake. A good mate of mine, a retired LE Officer, would take to FB at around 2005 every Thursday night, frothing at the mouth that some of his neighbours were not ‘showing enough respect’ by not taking part. Absolute madness. Coupled with the mass of awful YouTube videos that have sprung up everywhere - the Great War gave us poignant Poetry; Covid has given us awful Karaoke and the Clap.
Thank Christ we live out in the sticks, so there was never any peer pressure on us to get involved, although one dick at the other end of the village took to letting a few fireworks off, just to be one up on everyone else, the cretin.
I for one will be glad to see it disappear, but no doubt there will be something equally schmaltzy coming along behind it, to take its place. I hate the way this Country has turned into a collective Mumsnet.

That’s what a friend said her husband did. ‘OFSTED inspector’ was too embarrassing...
