Anecdotal thoughts of Jim Aborwhear

Well, it’s almost mid-way through another very unproductive week. Not helped by the fact that I cannot sit at the computer for any amount of time as have to keep leg straight. Oh well…I’ll be back at work soon. Just need to use up some more sick-leave. On the plus side watched some classic programmes … [Read the full story]

Outside smoking a cigarette, minding my own business feeling that sweet poison course through my veins when some drudge from my office walks past with the oh so witty comment, “You know if you keep smoking you’re going to die”. I paused took another drag and replied in what I thought was a perfectly reasonable … [Read the full story]

Am I asking too much by using the word “succinct”  in a report discussed at a meeting and expecting colleagues to know what it bloody means or be able to pronounce it I don’t think so, thing that really bugged me is that clear as it was they didn’t understand they didn’t ask, I ALWAYS … [Read the full story]

You know you very occasionally get an update on here which is really meaningful, this isn’t one of them. It’s quite long and pointless (that’s what she said)…but needs to be said.

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]

Anecdotal thoughts of Jim Aborwhear

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]
