  1. Not at all, I don't plan on going out for 2 weeks and only bought enough to do us. We usually buy a weeks worth at a time.
  2. Just back from Farmfoods, Aldi and Asda, it's like a Sunday late evening amount of folk, plenty available, especially Farmfoods. That's me got 2 weeks worth of stuff so we don't have to go out again. Tbf apart from pasta everything else we have. Shop is quiet 🙂 Would have went to Tesco but I got everything I needed for a fraction of Tescos current prices. Plus I didn't want a hiding from you for coming into the shop! 😄
  3. Well I had a bit of a minter on here last night.... @Futureboy @MONKMAN @Bairnardo @Fullerene you guys are completely correct, comparing offshore workers to NHS staff was a terrible comparison and I have no idea where I was going with the Piper thing. @The OP @woolf @pandarilla I am sorry for any offence caused it was never my intention. I do not think I am generally a roaster, I am putting last night down to tiredness and stress. I hope you and yours all stay safe.
  4. I am sorry if I have not been clear. I just think that the NHS staff's job has not changed, in a sense of they signed up to care for and treat patients, while at the same time avoiding infections themselves. They have always been good at their job, as I said before, the NHS saved my life. They are grossly underpaid for what they do for a job, if folk feel the need to clap them, do it every day as they are caring for and treating patients as they always do. I don't see myself as a hero, I was just making a comparison to another essential service, one I could relate with. I hope this clears it all up.
  5. I was 19 years offshore, working mainly in Valves then on to Pumps. It would be quite easy to cause a major incident if I didn't rebuild a pilot or relief vavle correctly, it is also quite easy to operate a valve willy nilly, if you felt the urge to of course. I did have one error about 15 years ago that shut down the whole Brent field, but that's a story for another day. I think the NHS staff are grossly underpaid for what they do, this needs to be recognised more than a clap imo. I am not dissing the NHS staff for what they do at all.
  6. 100k a year? Do me a favour! They knew the salary when they signed up, that's not my fault.
  7. Yes, just their jobs. Going into burning buildings is exactly what they signed up for. They too, do a good job.
  8. I was saving folks lives by doing my job correctly, if I didn't we could of had another Piper Alpha. The offshore industry is a battle ground of political ideology. Good luck to your wife and I hope she stays safe.
  9. Yes that was my opinion and I thank you for the maturity in your reply. I just think that's what they signed up for, to care for and treat patients. They are a without doubt a necessity, but are they doing anything different now to what they usually do? As in care for and treat patients? They do a great job by the way, I am not slating the NHS staff or their work ethic. Looking at it from a different perspective, I worked offshore for years, risking my life every time I got on a helicopter spending weeks on end away from family to provide gas to heat homes, another necessity. Do they deserve a round of applause? No of course not, because it's what they signed up for.
  10. Yes, I was at deaths door a couple of years ago, the NHS got me through. But it is just folk doing thier day jobs. Best of luck with your health.
  11. Hope you have something to keep you going with the football being off.
  12. But we're not on the Italy curve, plus your point has nothing to do with that.
