When I was a lad......

When I was younger I always said that I wouldn't turn into my parents saying things like....

When I was a lad or when I was younger....

However I am now 36 and find myself saying the above all too often and I HATE IT!!!!!

I say them because the world has gone mad.

When I was I lad and I wanted work experience I asked a company....they said yes....and I did some work experience.

I have agreed to have a girl on work experience in July.

I have already filled in numerous forms and disclaimers about it and now someone from
EDUCATION BUSINESS PLUS (FFS) has to visit us to check the office is not a death trap.

You can't even stand up nowadays without a bloody risk assessment.

The world is MAD!!!!!

and one more thing......

You know you get called from Asia by capital one and the like.....

When they ask you for security info.....refuse to give it and just say you rang me.....

It's amazing how fast they end the call.......

Anyway...thats it.

feel better now

J'aime la belle voiture!

Chris is quite right Cooper, when you're as old as he is, you can be really grumpy .

And when you're as old as me, well, the sky's the limit! .
