BE Day was the Services Brown Envelope Day - when the boys all got the notices of redundancy from service. :(

The 2 bars in the Barracks were both open all day, but most of the lads chose to come to us for the day & many left the envelope opening until they got there.
For some it was a good day, for others it was heartbreaking.

By 2am, we'd been open since 10am & there were just bodies everywhere!! I still keep in touch with a couple of the lads via facebook - happy memories though.
The more people I meet, the more I like my garden :wink:

People sending you pictures of their children, ok, one is tolerable but having them sent EVERY christmas/easter/birthday/school photo/''x's first poo'' etc :shock: . My sister keeps sending us framed photographs of her awful evil child at every opportunity. We have a vast collection of them now, this sounds really mean (and VERY immature) but we have a game here of hiding them around the house (in cupboards/under beds etc) to spook unsuspecting victims. :lol:

Going back to the original thread...

Work colleagues who tell your boss they've done something when they haven't and the same work colleagues who tell your boss that they'll do what they're supposed to and then don't.

This is sometimes little, sometimes big:

People who pass blame. It's usually habitual, that is, they can't help themselves. In fact, it could even be an evolutionary trait to pass blame...

Has anyone else thought about this?

Ha! This reminded me of a girl I used to work with. She was the lowest ranking member of the team and she was really lazy! (An aside; she gave me some advice one day- Always leave one job unfinished because that way, if someone asks you to do something you don't fancy doing, you've got an excuse not to do it! Shocking.)
Anyway, her most annoying habit was stopping work about ten minutes before a break was due, going to see the supervisor for some made-up reason, waiting til the supervisor said "lets stop for lunch", and then coming back to the rest of us (slogging away) and saying in an authoritative tone "Right Guys! Take your lunch now please!" as if it was her instruction. :lol: Ooh! Its drove us mad! But what can you do? :dontknow:

Being reminded of it did give me a smile though! :icon_smile:

I know a few people like that. It's never their fault. They blame the world (or me) for their own shortcomings, never taking responsibility for their problems. But have you noticed, they're rarely happy or contented.

1. My next door neighbour who came round to cut the hedge down when I was at work (my hedge) so quote 'he could see what I was up too' and he liked the view accross my fields now that I was tidying it all up.

2. same neighbour giving said wood to his neighbour on the other side to say thank you for letting him have a bonfire in his horse field because quote ' i had become awkward about him randomly burning his bonfire on my land without permission'

3. Same neighbour, having massacred my beautiful hedge to 3 yes 3 foot tall leaving one tree yes one tree intact out of the whole hedge to hide the transformer that is on my land providing elctricity to only his house because its an eyesore and he does not wish to see it

4. same neighbour dumping all his grass clippings in my ditch and bunging it up, flooding the track



Is it me??????

I promise that I am a good, kind, even tempered maid who is very friendly and I do not bite unless provoked.

However, to come round to my land with no permission do these things and then tell me he did it when I was at work because he would be able to work undisturbed???

Taking your wood is theft. Cutting down plants on your land is vandalism. Wandering onto your land without your permission is trespass.

And his transformer is where???? :wink: :wink:

Dumping grass clippings - isn't that fly-tipping?

Indy, I am absolutely fuming on your behalf. Can you not turn off his transformer thing and tell him to get it off your land? I bet if you do he'll wonder why.

That's lovely here on Ish, but in real life I fear you are being walked all over. You need to bite, bite hard, and bite now, and don't stop biting until he gets his act together. The cheeky moron.
