Like I said, we can't condone the work weary masses... the British clearing up Irish despair,, I tels yer..

My Uncle Thomas (on my mothers fathers uncles cousins side, who died on acoount of an internet virus) worked on the railways for years, under some fat fdckin controller with no real management skills, all day he woould haul the line from Tidmouth shed to far away.. and he got no thanks... now that's real graft, not like them Irish types with thier red or black hair and allegiances...


And my uncle tom was biult like a tank, and worked like an engine.... not like these potato worshipping bogwater mitherers and thier three toed children....

An thats no lie...

And God Save the Queen..
Whatever it is that you're on, I want some :)

It was a English company that sent the letter!
This is progress. At one time we used to send pictures of their dead sons. To their Mams. But we have moved on and now we offer insurance opportunities and a range of exciting products available on the internet. It is a lot less hassle than sticking down the flap of a D4 envelope in a chem suit so nobodies DNA gets on the photo. And writing "With lurve" in lipstick on the back.

No old chap.. five beers down, a sunny roof terrace and access to ARRSE... likely a bad combination..
That would explain the ramblings! I'll look forward to listening to you fall off the roof terrace after another 5 beers :thumright:

He fell off the roof terrace two hours ago. The anaesthetic is wearing off his laptop - it had to go to PC World for emergency treatment.

3123 is being taken to theatre as we speak. The prognosis is fair to poor. The rest of the beer is for the
third person on the roof terrace.

You appear to be as high as a fucking kite!
Stick with it 3123, we need more "kites" on this forum, the more the better. There are far too many serious old farts on here already.

I went for a walk through the village today ( lovely sunny afternoon). I never realised there were so many old buggers - and their wives - living around me. They all seemed to be sleeping in the sun - in their gardens or conservatories - just waiting for that trumpet call to eternity!

I intend to install one of those WW2 air raid sirens and have a "stand to" twice a day. Anyone who does not turn out will be directed to our local burial ground.

( I think I have had too much sun and wine today!)

Their approach to retrieving money owed pretty much stinks but it's not uncommon to write to the family or the executor of somebody who has died to ask for money that is owed.

Local authorities do it all the time. One example is if a Council tenant passes away and they want the property returned so they can re-let it. Families can be slow to clear personal effects so all the Council do until they get the keys back is claim the rent owed and send a bill to the family for the whole outstanding amount every week. It's a reminder to the family that the sooner they clear the property and return the keys, the less amount they will pay in rent for the now empty property

Another is damage caused by road traffic accidents. Councils will often bill whoever is at fault for damaged caused to lamp posts and road signs and that includes the dead. There was a young lad quite some time ago who speeding down a hill lost control of his car a wrapped it around a lamp post like a piece of paper around a pencil. He was killed instantly. I was talking to the officer responsible for sending the bill to his estate for a new lamp post who had the letter in his hand ready to sign and post it.

On this occasion to his credit, he smiled at me and said fuck it, I'm not doing it and screwed the letter up and threw it in the bin.

Finance companies, insurance companies.....all bastards.

Years ago I opened a letter to my mom from her health insurance company. It said they would not pay for her ambulance trip to the hospital as her condition was not life-threatening. When I called them up and pointed out that she had died two hours after getting to the hospital they did agree to pay it.

See, that's the sort of crap that makes me glad I'm British and not American.
