Message 1372157 - Posted: 26 May 2013, 13:00:01 UTC - in response to Message 1372119.  

Unlike you, I have better things to do.


Modern technology really is useful especially being able to tether an IPhone to my laptop to give net access. Had a couple of coppers laughing this morning......

...since 7/7, a lot of sites have tighter security which makes a lorry driver's job that little bit harder...

....they liked your posts, but you don't wanna know what they thought of you.....

They ended up having me in stiches LOL.

They're human just like everybody else.

& as for having things to do, I prefer a real job than that of kissing politicians butts for favours.

I am gratified to hear that in these uncertain times that we live in, our boys in blue are keeping an eye on you. Well done lads.

....they liked your posts, but you don't wanna know what they thought of you.....

On the contrary, I would be absolutely delighted to meet the two officers concerned, I have no doubt whatsoever that it would be a most illuminating conversation on both sides. The internet tells me that there are 7 local police stations in your area, therefore it would save me a lot of time if you would let me know publicly, or privately if you prefer, the names of these officers and their serial numbers, so that I can contact them directly.

...since 7/7, a lot of sites have tighter security which makes a lorry driver's job that little bit harder...

Fortunately, my mortgage was paid off some years ago so I no longer have to work full time. In the current economic climate I have every sympathy for those still struggling to pay the rent.

We have the City of London Police, and the Metropolitan Police, I'm not sure which force you are referring to. At the present moment the Terrorism threat level is set at Substantial, and since the event in Woolwich last Wednesday, both police forces have been on enhanced alert. Because of the investigations going on involving an extra 500 officers from all over the country, it is difficult for any politician to say too much publicly without compromising security operations. The police know they have 100% public and government support.

But I suppose in your favour, they did tell me off after I remarked that I was looking for a lot of jam jars to crush under my rear wheels.

It's not in my favour at all. Given the above and current circumstances, it was rather foolhardy to say the least, and definitely in bad taste, to make comments like that to uniformed police officers. You are lucky that you didn't receive a formal caution, but I expect your registration number was noted though. Your weird sense of humour might be allowed here on the Seti boards, it doesn't traslate too well in real life onto the streets of London after a brutal murder.

Wow, so its now illegal to make humorous comments? In that case, maybe you'd better speak to your friend in the House & HAVE all those racist extremists shut up then!

Don't know of any distribution centres in the Square Mile, do you?

To see a few police officers laughing to offset their difficult tasks is a joy, unfortunately with too many like you, that is not always possible to see I'm afraid!

Edit: As for humour, while on the road last week, I was broken into (storage area) & required by the Housing Association to report all incidents like that immediately. This was done & the SOCO (Scene of Crimes Officer} spent some considerable time here & if you think my humour is weird, you really ought to see it from their point of view, mine is quite tame!

I would judge that generally speaking your humour is in poor taste rather than weird. Oh and you might want to revise that last link you posted, it appears to give access to all your photographs. OK I see that you now have done.

Sirius, that break in link is still giving me access to all your other photos at photobucket, and I assume others as well. I thought I had better tell you.

It's not an issue as there is nothing on that account to be ashamed of. But just to get you off my case, it's been deleted.

Edit: It seems that the new version of Photobucket is a beta version & not recognising the settings of the previous version in that it sets all settings back to default until one changes them, which has left account wide open.

Also, now when copying an image, on posting it gives 2 lines of code, the URL followed by IMG.

Think the coders need to check their work before going mainstream!

Even the two deleted for TOS violations. Glad to hear you wear those as a badge of honor.

In the case of Spain and the EHIC I'll take a pretty good copper bottomed guess, that it is to do with the Spanish governments continuing argument with Britain over the future of Gibraltar. And I wouldn't doubt for a moment that their hospitals have been told "unofficially" to refuse the EHIC just to be awkward. But of course they will deny it. Be interesting to see if they get an EU fine, whether they argue about paying it, particularly as they might be next for a further EU bail out.

Poor Frenchies indeed :-(

France in WWII was a totally different place to what it is today. The sheer heroism of the French Resistance was perhaps, and still remains, one of the most unsung stories of that conflict. Fast forward to today and you have incompetent Presidents, corrupt governments and ministers, failing economy, stroppy fisherman that dictate to the country, meddling in Europe, and over-hyped and over-priced food and wine. To be fair, provincial farmhouse cooking is excellent, and some of their wines are universal classics, but not the vast majority of it.

France still remains, a place you just travel through to get to somewhere else. Xenophobe? You bet your sweet bibby!

In most countries many people live in the suburbs or countryfied areas, and travel into towns and cities for their jobs. Well there you go folks, Official printed word from our resident Mr Misery guts that he doesn't get on with anyone anywhere! I suggest that we cut that post out and frame it.
