Bus drivers - miserable bastards.

Today I tried to pay a £12.50 fare with a £20 note because I didn't have any change. The bus driver tutted, shook his head, and made it feel like he was doing me a favour by taking my money. Honestly going in a sulk because he had to give me a £5 note, two pound coins and a 50p piece in change.

NHS agreeing to replacement joint surgery for people who are over 80 and most definitely senile. Apologies but this is a bit of a rant. My dad, who is nearly 81 and a star of a man, he has been slowly nosediving into what is called 'Senile Dementia', he is clear for Alzheimers but the degeneration is much the same. I'm sitting here most nights watching my dad forget what he has just watched on the telly, forget he'd just let the dog out, forget he'd just boiled the kettle for a cup of tea, forget he'd just kissed my mum (his wife of nearly 50 years) goodnight, forget he'd said goodnight to me and do it all again.

NHS seem to think he will be fine to have a new knee, we are not allowed to challenge this as we don't have Power of Attorney. They don't care that he won't have the mental wherewithall to undergo the physio. i can only hope that at some point in the next 4 weeks someone will listen to my concerns.


Unfortunately it's painful to watch. I went through the same thing with my gran, her dementia was undiagnosed for almost 30 years.
Eventually she had to go in a nursing home as there was no one in my family who was able to look after her. I'd go round to her flat to cook her dinner every other evening so she wouldn't get food poisoning. She had it in her head that if it says gas mark 4 for 50 minutes she could throw it in on gas mark 8 for 25.
Then when she'd come to visit, she was hoping to catch the eye of the elderly man next door by flashing her ankles at him.
By the time she was in the nursing home, she thought my sister was my mum and my nephew was me. She recognised my voice, but not my face.
Probably the saddest thing was that both her and my other gran lived in the same nursing home and never met in the 35 years that my parents were married for at the time.
I can understand a little of what you're going through, sadly it's those closest that suffer watching the decline and there's yet to be a cure.

It's always funny until someone gets hurt, and then it's hilarious.

The pathetic brass brass band that supports the England football team, inanely playing (badly) the theme tune to the Great Escape ad fucking nauseum, and the national anthem that no-one wants to hear and Rule Bloody Britannia. Am I alone in cringing with embarrassment and wanting to put a boot through the TV every time I hear this. Now if they could play the Muppets' theme tune it might be appropriate.

That gets you 42 miles to Aberdeen and back. I thought paying with a £20 note would be fine because the last time I used the bus it cost over £15 for the same journey.

Photographs of sunrises and sunsets. Out of boredom I joined one of these online photographic sites where everyone is nice to everyone else. One woman posts the same sunrise scene every fucking day, I kid you not, and it seems to get other posters creaming their jeans. I post a flower or an interesting rock or something and no fucker notices. At least I can come here and sound off or exchange insults. I mean some people post really shit pictures and people are putting up comments like "gorgeous" and "magnificent". No-one can bring themselves to say the obvious. It's as if you pass through a shit-to-nice converter when you enter the portal. Even I find myself making pleasant comments on stuff like an out-of-focus pepper pot that some misguided disillusioned twat believes is a work of art. All I can say of the experience so far is that it disproves the infinite monkey theorem. There ain't no David Baileys in that place.

I can post any old crap and I'll get about 20 people "liking" it. The wife invited me to Pinterest. I've yet to put anything up there and already have 10 people following me.
I might wait till I get 100 people following me until I decide to do anything. Can't remember how many are following me on Twitter, I have posted anything there for several months and still get one or two new people a week

Awful, isn't it?
I joined a family history site with the same calibre of posters. They get upset so easily. I once helped someone find what happened to one of their great great great etc grandmothers. The old woman committed suicide. I posted that...I got a telling off and my post was removed because the poster may have found it 'distressing'.
If you are critical of them, they almost have a nervous breakdown! Any 'controversial' threads which lead to differing (usually political) opinions are locked. If you question the moderator's judgement, you get PM'd by someone higher up the chain to be told 'be nicer to the mods because they have been kind enough to volunteer their time'. It really is terrible. So far I have managed not to get banned, but I don't post much there any more.

Pinterest deserves its own spot here. I had a look then got outa there fast. Sooner or later you won't be able to go for a piss without someone knowing on the internet or comparing "streams" in iPhone pics. It's all getting out of hand, pardon the pun.

That reminds me. I posted this image in the landscapes section that was maybe a bit marginal and the twat who moderates the section kicked it out - and he's a shit photographer too. So I started a forum debate on what or was not a landscape, pointing out loads of other pics in the section that were a lot dodgier and far crapper than mine and people were getting kicked out left right and centre so I didn't make myself too popular there. But I did have fun.

True, I would have had some reverse ones tonight with the moon, but my camera just isn't up to getting a clear nighttime shot. Shame really as the moon was full and lighting up all the clouds around it in a very surreal way, I don't think I have ever seen a moon like this. No sign of the Aurora Borealis either and I would love to see that.

Resumes, lies and uncertainties. The aftermath of being hired and not knowing the details of concern. Skepticism and the mysterious allure of innovation. Promises of grandeur which are amusing, vague. Traveling to a place with an atmosphere that is not very intriguing and standing in an elevator with someone bizarre. Anticipation.

Little bit of a work place whinge here... I am going to be off sick for 10 days after next Thursday 26th, (a small op on my right hand, thank you for asking) but the company has decided to make me redundant during this time. Mrs Josco v. upset, and I can't help wondering if I'll ever work again.
