Anecdotal thoughts of Jim Aborwhear

I don’t usually drink weekdays anymore, but made an exception this week. When I got home, had a bath, shaved (I shave at night, I hate having to look at my face in the mornings especially when I have a razor in my hand). Next morning, got up feeling a little rough it must be … [Read the full story]

Went out 2pm to buy a packet of fags, some damn drunken idiot urinating against the  side wall of the shop, on the bloody high street on a Sunday afternoon!!, unusually for me I rather lost my temper and am ashamed to say the language I used whilst barking at him was rather ripe. Glad … [Read the full story]

Anecdotal thoughts of Jim Aborwhear

I walked past a group of fellow work colleagues in a coffee shop. They were discussing how awful child labour is. As I sat down on a vacant seat at their table, one of them started to talk to me and asked, “Jim, what do you think of child labour?” I replied, “Oh, I think it’s utterly appalling…young children … [Read the full story]

I had Friday off work as I have to use up my holiday or lose it. Excellent day, awoke early, tea and a good book in bed (NOT 50 shades of grey). Brisk walk to the shops to buy some food and managed to pick up some lamb on the cheap – mmmhhhhh. A friend … [Read the full story]

The sort of clientele on buses aren’t what they used to be. Respect and manners are going out of the window…in fact, they may already be gone. Some crabby, leprous termagant with a face that really reflects a personality devoted to the art of misery sidled up to me on the bus last week and … [Read the full story]

Anecdotal thoughts of Jim Aborwhear

I experienced a relatively rare emotion today…enthusiasm. At lunch over a coffee I was discussing cabbages and Kings with a colleague of mine. For some reason we were discussing the history of warfare and meandered into the ancient world, specifically the Spartans. I recalled that the word “laconic” was related and was rather pleased that … [Read the full story]

Ahhh…the last team briefing of the year. I may include it specifically in my Advent calendar for 2013. I must stop getting eye contact with staff facing the manager, winking at them, pursing my lips whilst giving them a sexually smouldering stare and nodding my head towards the stationery cupboard with raised eyebrows and salacious … [Read the full story]

Anecdotal thought of Jim Aborwhear

I was told today that I would have been happier as an Edwardian, you know, I really regret that people think that of me. Yes, the elegant clothes, slavish adherence to etiquette and rigid system of good manners appeal to me, not to mention the rigid imposition of hypocrisy meant that the upper class actually … [Read the full story]

Anecdotal thoughts of Jim Aborwhear

A highly successful start to the day as Sigurdsen Noforskinsy, whose quaint Norse sayings and homespun philosophy made him very popular…unfortunately ruined, when a member of staff brought in some pickled herrings. It ended messily with a hat stand being wielded with the Berserker intensity of a battle axe. I’ll have to cross that one … [Read the full story]

Anecdotal thoughts of Jim Aborwhear

I was told by a member of my staff that I had taken an instant dislike to them the first time we met. “I can assure you this is not the case”, I replied, “It was only when I got to know you better and through dint of your own hard work in this respect … [Read the full story]
