Just wait 'til you're feart to put down your glasses, as you'll forget where you put them and can't see to check.

I've literally had to wait for my son to get home to find them for me or, on one memorable occasion, my elderly mother who sees four of everything due to cataracts and glaucoma.

Not enough Napalm Death on this forum, frankly.

Today's PTTGOYN: Fairy Liquid has been becoming progressively weaker over the past twenty years. Absolutely frothing, but not as much as I used to be.

Places with canteen services who insist on table service, then don't have anyone going round the tables, resulting in you having to to go the counter, be told its table service, and return to your table to do the transaction.

Guy I work with keeps referring to Frasier as 'Fraser'.

He's been told before, but perseveres with saying Fraser, probably in the knowledge that it annoys others.  He's succeeding on that front anyway.

Start deliberately mispronouncing his name.

Guy I used to work with was the opposite. Anyone called Fraser he called them Frasier.

He was Irish (southern) though.

Do you still get folk called Fraser? 

I've got two pals called Fraser, both ancient like me.

I’ve hand a think. I can total 4 Fraser’s that I know.

1 from Elgin now in Forfar (probably about 60)

1 English, retired, ex work colleague.

1 from Dundee, musician, probably late 30s.

1 from near Dundee, maybe living in Blairgowrie or the likes, early 30s.

So to summarise, f**k knows I only know 4.

Commentator on the athletics after some random won a middle distance race ...

"it's a transformation from being an also ran on the international scene to a superstar"

and

"incredible, out of nowhere almost"

I wonder what he's inferring and I don't doubt why I find it hard to enjoy this sport as I once did

On the recommendation of a guy from work, i bought some "Madri" Spanish beer today.  As an Estrella Damm regular, i thought i'd give the Madrid beer a go rather than the Barcelona usual purchase.

Turns out the "Madri" isn't brewed in the Spanish capital, but in Burto -O-Tren in englan under licence.   Won't be making further purchases as it isn't as good.
