Have to admit it was a bit more subdued and half hearted around by me last night! I said the same to the Missus who was even less enthusiastic and she works for the NHS and her response was probably not till lockdown is over.

I live in NY and it's every fucking night here at 7pm. People blowing whistles and shit out of the window like lunatics.

It was novel at the beginning and a nice show of appreciation but now it just pisses me off and what pisses me off even more is when people are giving your dirty looks if you happen to be walking down the road (back from the shop or something) while it's happening. I'm not being shamed into fucking clapping and screaming every night at 7pm so fuck off
Would like multiple times if I could

I moved house a couple of weeks ago (long protracted purchase, had agreed to buy the house last November).

Anyway, due to having two young kids (and my own free will) I've not joined in the NHS clap on a Thursday - though I do work all day to actually support the NHS.

The old couple opposite mentioned our non-appearance to my wife the other day. What the fuck does it have to do with them?
Really?

Thats the issue with it, people are feeling like they have to else they don't "love the NHS". It's pathetic.

I may have ranted about this before, but some twat in our village now thinks it is his right, nay DUTY, to broadcast music (but mainly himself) over his PA in the street for an HOUR every week after the 5 minute clap! Simply to get Facebook 'likes'
I don't clap because it's not the way i do things.
I'd love to know what the "exit strategy" for the clapping is - does it just fade away, or what?
It is literally just attention seeking shit for twats on Facebook who want to clap louder than the next person.

Then you have people watching and judging who claps. I'd bet the majority judging are the single mums with 3 kids who sit on Facebook all day posting inspirational quotes on colourful backgrounds. Have some judgement back you bitch.

Been drinking way too much so vowed to have a sober weekend but had to go into the office today and it was insanely stressful and now I'm climbing the walls.

Had a Fray Bentos chicken pie in one of those tins last night (came as part of my shielding pack). How the heck do you get it out of the tin once it’s cooked without ending up with just a total mess on your plate?

I'm impressed you could get in the tin in the first place! Last time I tried, I risked eating shards of metal.

Mind you, they might have tasted better.

Didn't know they still made them, Arch!
Someone should teach them to grease the base of the tin (the inside!) before putting the pie in

I have to get the weekly shopping for my mum and my Nan. I go every week and they both ask for 8 pints of milk each (4 cartons). I tell them each week that I can only get 12 between them in 3 cartons. It’s been going on for 10 weeks or so you’d think the penny would drop. Guess what they both put on their list yesterday?
It’s starting to wind me up now.

I did a shop for my in laws at the start of all this they put on the list 1 tin of beans 1 tin of tomatoes etc, they also ordered a large amount of cereal but only two pints of milk. They also said the toilet paper had to be andrex. I just ended up getting them multiples of everything as I wasn’t doing it every week as it’s a fifty mile round trip.

As they don’t get out due to lockdown they can’t grasp the issues getting stuff. Stuff is still hit and miss in the shelves

My neighbour is right up there, she kept bringing me food, left a little post it note with her number on, so I text her to say thanks like, and fuck me, she won't leave me alone, keeps asking me to go on walks with her and all sorts, shes told me she fancies me as well. I've turned into a bit of a curtain twitcher now as I have to plan going out around when shes out so I don't bump into her. HELP!!! :dead:

Get round hers, disappoint her with your tiny cock and she’ll leave you alone. Win win.

I’ve got a similar situation (minus the shagging) with my 60 year old next door neighbour who still lives with his mum. Constantly bringing vegetables round from his garden and offering me gardening advice every time I leave the house. Thing is I can’t stand gardening and would tarmac the lot if I could.

Is he bringing you cucumbers and looking you in the eye when he hands it to you?

Get similar every week with my Mum and Dad. Even moan if I get them the 'wrong' brand of something when its the only one in stock.

Also a constant battle to stop them going out. They seem to think that the restrictions don't apply after Johnsons speech last weekend and its fine to pop to the garden centre.

If they moan about the wrong brand next time don't pick them up an alternative. Just stick rigidly to the list and tell them not in stock. Next time I'd imagine they'd be happy with an alternative.

My sister just started doing online shopping for her and my Mum, who is 90 this year, so shielding.
My sister said "No substitutions" then moans endlessly when they repeatedly don't bring her a loaf of Warburton's Sliced White Farmhouse. FFS - it's bread, it won't kill you to eat Hovis or (god forbid) "own brand"!!

She's not the first and won't be the last.

Pisses me off that friends of mine have a holiday home in Devon. They are loaded, sold their house in Oxford for over £1m. They applied for a lockdown business grant and WE, the taxpayer are going to give them a £10,000 non-repayable grant. Talk about taking the piss.........

It’s fine though because we’ll claw back the money from sensible tax rises on the very wealthy rather than say pay freezes on nurses, right?

Anyway, I'm a member of a Facebook group for the small estate I used to live on. My former neighbour just put on a video of tonight's NHS clap. Some c**t blasting out that 'One Last Time' by Ariana Grande (presumably) because it's the anniversary of the Manchester bomb tomorrow.
What the fuck has happened to this country?
