    Ended up badly bruised for a few weeks(no pain, just hideous bruising), but more importantly my left arm was inoperable being broken, and she'd struggling to insert the tube to tether my useful right arm to the IV and painkiller drip .. so now both arms inoperable when trying to eat!

    Great stuff.

    Eventually another nurse came along and correctly used my broken left arm for the drip
    . so now both arms inoperable when trying to eat!

    Talk about taking away a bloke's dignity?

    Teenagers can be the laziest sods on god's earth.


    How do I know this you may well ask?


    Well, was a teen myself a thousand years ago & anything to get out of a bit of "Home Maintenance" when one has a nice looking sort lined up for the flicks that evening, & one has to start putting on the glad rags at about 3pm so you won't be late.



    Oh yes, I've been there sonny Jim/Paul.

    Yep, every time one of the girls tells me that they hate going to the farm and doing work it reminds me of my teenage self.... but I still get grumpy anyway. Why else would I have had children if not for free labour.

    Farm! Have you tried asking them to tidy their bedrooms? Like it was WW3 breaking out already. I'm over that these days & they have kids of their own to grapple with.
