Does anyone actually like patterned toilet roll?

So, not concerned about you per se but what he would do if you passed. o.O

In a nutshell!

I’m not his friend. I’m his parent. My job is to steer him to self sufficiency in life and we’re getting there! He is polite and respectful towards me though. If he wasn’t he would have been told to leave.

My daughter was much easier to bring up and I had virtually no hassle from her growing up. She’s independent and we get on really well. I’m off to Edinburgh to visit her tomorrow and the home cooked lunch and evening meal menu sounds lovely. The outing organised sounds great too.

For years I thought my son would go down a wrong path whereas I never worried about that with my daughter.

How is his apprenticeship going?

For many years I selected a variety of hideously-pattrned loo rolls, so I could express my contempt for them in a direct and practical way before flushing.

Nowadays I conceal them under the ample nylon skirts of a Torremolinos flamenco dancer doll, which I display in my well-plumbed mini art gallery in an ironic, post-modernist manner.

Very well.

While I’m doubtful about the quality of modern apprenticeships he got a distinction in a practical and written test at the end of last year.

When he got signed up for the apprenticeship early last year he was very obviously motivated and told me he felt he was getting a chance in life. He has matured more from my perspective over the last six months

Excellent. So pleased for him. 

There are quality (think traditional old school) apprenticeships out there  just need to sort the wheat from the chaff  seems like he has done that

The guys he works with are decent. He’s been offered some simple building work recently but said he’d rather wait until he has more experience and can be sure of doing the job correctly.

Son has been working as a labourer to brickies for around three years now and has picked a lot up. He’s looking forward to getting the full cut of the money when it’s divided out instead of a lower amount. The bit of paper will ensure that!

Good on him. He has a good future ahead now that he is gaining a proper skill.

Yes, I feel very relieved that he is on track to get a bit of paper that will allow him access to making money from his skills. He’s also watching you tube videos posted by certified brickies and what they’re doing to earn money for themselves.

Sounds like he is pretty motivated by his chosen trade. All good. 

My mate’s son is an electrician. At 21 he was driving a bmw due largely to his private work. Good money to be made if you are willing bb

What, roll up to your neighbour's house with his washing?

I grew up in a council house. Neighbours had to share a path for reasons of economy.

Me too, but end of terrace so we must have been posh, but with the next terrace just a few feet away it made a fantastic climbing wall. I went back recently and can't believe we used to dare each other to get the apex of the house and back down, but we did :-)

Anything practical is a good skill. The IT industry is shit and run by nobheads. Do make sure he buys trousers that fit, and don't show his bum crack

Im surprised the UK hasn't moved towards the SE Asian style of arse wipery. Far more environmentally friendly and much better clean. Takes a wee bit getting used to but that's hardly a chore.

Agreed this is best. There’s a yuck factor in it - picking up the sprayer which you know has been handled by people with shitty hands, and washing the shit off your arse if it’s messy, but no doubt with proper hand washing the results are way way better than anything that can be achieved with any kind of paper.

paper is never going to lead to a clean arse, you've got to wipe with a damp bit of paper or involve water in some way

I would be incredibly embarrassed to have shit on my pants.

When I was in uni, we had a downstairs bathroom that also housed a shower cubicle. I went in for a piss and it noticed that my housemate appeared to have managed to have taken a shit and failed to wipe his arse properly, then had a shower and failed to wash his arse properly too, leaving a huge skidmark on his towel. It was the smell that actually alerted me in the first place. I pointed this out to him and he promptly removed it.
It's only occurred to me just now that it might have crossed his mind that I'd wiped my arse with his towel and told him to sort it out.

WTF.

Any grown adult leaving skidmarks in their keks needs to be having a serious word with themselves. Surely it's a prerequisite of adulthood to be able to wipe your arse properly.

The ramifications don't even bear thinking about, what happens if these people pull? Can you imagine getting down to business and discovering a set of pants that look like a faecal Jackson Pollock or worse...a pebbledashed underbollock?  Christ, you'd have to fucking emigrate to escape the shame.

      I happened to switch on the telly and come across the Europeans Championships. Why do people want to dedicate large parts of their adult life to becoming professional athletes? Unless you're at the very top of your game I can't see you making any money.
      A British guy just won the 100m breast stroke. I just can't see where the money comes from to pay this guy more than a fairly crap salary. Dont get me wrong, it must be a fun life travelling the world etc. However it just seems a waste of time to me.....

      Why do companies use offshore call centres? I can't possibly believe that there's any cost savings involved once you factor in lost business, the expense of dealing with all the inevitable escalations from annoyed customers, all the cost of running an operation 5000 miles away and so on.
      My own example: I once tried to add track day insurance to my existing car insurance from Norwich Union. I called them up and got a guy in India who didn't know what a track day was and, once our mutually incompatible versions of English and the crappy phone line (presumably another cost saving measure) were factored in, was incapable of understanding my explanation (at one point he asked if I wanted tractor insurance). In the end I gave up and bought it from somewhere else even though I knew that Norwich Union sold it.
      These days for anything remotely critical (insurance, bank accounts, utilities) I do my best to check first if the company in question uses offshore call centres and will avoid them if they do.

      Recent posts on the stealth forum have shown one thing about the typical Dosbodder. We are not overly folicularly blessed. To put it another way, we are slapheads, we are unlikely to need to bring a hairdryer when going on holiday. We need to be careful if we visit bowling alleys. We don't need to make any special effort if we are going to a Willie Thorne impersonators event. 
      The question is, are British men more likely to go bald than any other nationality? Living in Thailand, the average Thai man has amazing hair, even elderly men typically have a good top coverage. Of the German guys I knew, most of them in their 30s and 40s had good hair. Of my British friends however, just about all of
      us are thinning, the only one who isn't is of Indian origin anyway.
      And the second question; are people losing their hair quicker and at ever younger ages?
      Using the scientifically proven method of looking at footballers, from the 80s, I remember that Johnny Metgod and David Armstrong were both very bald by their early 30s. There were almost no others though. Guys nowadays seem to be going bald in their early 20s. There was Rooney of course, photos show that Steve Stone had very little hair when he played for England at 24. Alan Wright lost all his very early. What about Jonjo Shelvey?
      Some research on the internet found this where it states that mediterranean men are more affected:
      http://www.express.co.uk/life-style/life/762227/hair-loss-bald-men-country
      But I would ask, can anyone name a bald Iranian footballer?
