    UmBongo reacted to Frank Hovis in What do we want? Female equality and more toilets than men!   
    Remove mirrors from women's toilets so they're not doing make up and play a high pitched whine that means they won't stand around chatting or play with their phones on the bog.
    Problem solved.

    Wiping the smugness off the faces of  this trio from the Ministry of Re-education is a good enough reason alone to vote the. Brexit party imo.

    Difficult question to answer.
    I was quite chuffed to get selected for the current job I'm currently doing. I pretty much aced the interview. Was shortlisted from around 160 candidates for 3 vacancies. It's quite a good fit of a job for me.
    Standing up to a few awkward characters who have made my life difficult. Most recently my brother-in-law and toxic sister. I have a thread about this in the Stealth forum.

    UmBongo got a reaction from null; in European Election: How will you vote?   
    On my walk home from work this afternoon I saw one of Sir Vincent's vans scaring us into voting limp dem with a pic of Nigel and Teresa on the hoarding. Yes Vince I will vote - but not for the party you want me to vote for!
    Re: that pro EU guy who pops up in the background a lot around Westminster with a 'revoke Article 50' board (he was festering in the background where Andrea Leadbaloon was filmed making an exit from a building). I finally figured out who he reminds me of: The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland.

    I was in the co-op yesterday eyeing cookies, turned around and put my face almost into a pair of beautifully creamy coloured breasts belonging to a red haired-something student.
    Her blouse was open and, no doubt, she was fully aware and enjoying the attention as every male, and one female, kept glancing towards her. Gingers do have their uses.
    It is your own fault @VeryMeanReversion I have no idea what you wrote other than that you mentioned bras at the end.

    What an extremely interesting thread. I could rep most posts but haven’t because I’d run out of reps!
    For me it’s a no brainer on my best life achievement and that was addressing and giving up my alcohol addiction in 1991.
    It hasn’t been an easy path but it’s been interesting and productive. I feel blessed that I now have two mid twenty year old offspring who I have really good relationships with. Son still requires a bit of support due to securing an apprenticeship in something he enjoys and is interested in but daughter totally independent and enjoying her life.

    Skittles - I saw them use their cringeworthy slogan again this year, something like, "During Pride week, there's only one rainbow that matters."
    It's a fucking insult to Jeffrey, George, Zippy and Bungle.

    Go on then, mine was booking - on impulse - a round the world flight ticket 20 years ago (age 23), very out of the ordinary behaviour for me but it changed my life in so many ways. there’s a whole whole out there..

    UmBongo reacted to ccc in The normalisation of female obesity   
    I recently got some cheap hiking type trousers from Trespass. Picked up a medium and they literally fell off me. 
    In the end had to get extra small. I've a 32 inch waist ffs

    My recommendation is avoid anyone with weird coloured hair. Guaranteed to be a nutter.

    UmBongo reacted to Virgil Caine in Why are channel 4 such arseholes?   
    Peabody Awards are like BAFTAs. One lot of luvvies ( in this case Broadcasters) giving another prizes for conforming. All of them are just a form of journalistic mutual masturbation.

    UmBongo reacted to Frank Hovis in Almshouses   
    This may be a consideration, or retirement plan, for older DOSBODders.
    There are many of these around the country but I looked this one up the other day because I used to walk past it regularly, Charterhouse by the Barbican in central London which was originally Charterhouse school which is now down in Kent.
    I would genuinely be happy to live there; though won't qualify.
    Requirements for entry:
    Would I qualify to join the Charterhouse?
    I am single I am older than 60 I am in financial, housing and social need I have no significant debts (credit cards, loans or other) I am able to live by myself and anticipate continuing in good physical and mental health for at least two years I am keen to contribute to a community I am a UK or Irish citizen and have been a UK  resident for at least two years  
    There's no guarantee of getting in but if you're in that position it's a great place to live.  The standard criteria for entry seem to be that you are deserving of the accommodation and will fit in; basically what social housing used to be like before it went needs based.
    So anybody in a low paid job who doesn't fancy working until they drop: jump in.

    Oops, what have they done! I've now subliminally connected them with something with which they are unconnected....
    Anyway, call centre worker, £5.25 milkshake at lunch, which he then THROWS AWAY! Clearly not very DOSBODS.

    I think the EU should just go back to doing that Going for Gold programme with Henry Kelly. It was OK then.
