Clap for carers

Post by Keith »

It's doing my head in. Those of us with stir crazy toddlers are trying to get them settled to sleep and you've got a street full of dicks clattering pots and pans. A gentle round of applause, fine. Leave the pans in the cupboards though, pricks.

Rant over.

Vuvuzela ftw
:smug:

But I too have given up on clapping every week now. Mawkish shite, and the anti boris clap types put me off now doing anything virtue signalling. My way of keyworker thanks, is giving my postie / binman/ Tesco deliver guy an ice cold Can of Coke to say thanks.

There was a couple out for a jog at that time near us. Looked like the whole street were out to cheer them along, which tickled me.

Luckily my lad goes to bed by half seven and sleeps like a log. Hasn't been an issue so far on that front.

My 2 year old son is in bed by 19:15 but takes a while to drop off as he lies in his cot and sings to himself for a while. He's usually dropping off at about 20:00, just in time for the pot and pan pricks to start :x

Christ jesus don’t mention them fecking zuluvulvas.

The wendyball WC in SA coincided with my ISP providing epically shit speed. To avoid stupidly slow loading times I ended up putting a big chunk of saffer posters on ignore because so many were adorning their posts with those god-damned annoying vuvuzela gifs.

And then of course I promptly forgot doing so.

It wasn’t ‘til aaaaages later that I wondered where all the saffer posters went; until finally noticing the little rectangles marking an ignored post.

A bit embarassing, that.

Gives my kids another excuse to be out of the house even if it is only for a few yards.

Last night i did because we did a virtual wine tasting with a big group of us on Zoom. Great fun and to be recommended as an idea for the lockdown.

Yesterday one of my neighbours came round to speak to my wife, with the request that she actually go out into the street to accept the applause. I pointed out she was at work and would not be in till 2100. At 2100, bang on time for her driving into the street, all the neighbours came out again and clapped her along the street to the house. She was fecking mortified. :lol:

Yeah, in general they are quality. The guy that came around is the organiser in chief who is already circulating emails for a BBQ/pissup at the end of all this shite.

Nice try - I realise you love to pick holes in what i write, but let me clairify - I have pallets of the stuff , and have left a (sealed in its own plastic) tray by the gate for them to take. True there might be some lurgy on the plastic but basically , I’ve not touched anything they will touch. Please don’t be a dick about someone , even me, trying to be nice to people working when it’s hot and sunny. Tray has finished now so I won’t put any more out for them just to put your mind at ease.


True the binman will have touched the bins I’ve put out , but he will just have to live on the edge.

Some idiots have tried the same thing here. They get all righteous and shitty when I say we should be clapping for the supermarket workers as they are the only ones flat out here.

Carers (apart from the one in Christchurch) have never had it so easy

Might need to rebrand certain supermarkets to "Clap N Save".

I've no problem with the clapping. The whooping and rattling pans, however....

Which means you only gave 95% effort. Poor form.
