Ch- Ch - Ch - Ch- Changes

Ehh, they say our generation can't accept change. New landlord in the Shoulder, new manager in the Rat and half the staff in the Grove gone.  New white paper hand towels in the bogs and the 328 times have changed. Its fucking anarchy 'round here lately. But I'm coping.

Sounds like it...

I love Parker pens. I've had my most recent one for a few years but it was getting a bit battered. Bought a new one t'other day from WH Smiths. A nice silver matte finish and aesthetically speaking, it's off the chart. It's change, but I'm coping.

That's why I keep the same under crackers on.

Less stress.

I've lost my orange "Wired Puppy" coffee mug in the house somewhere.

I've been looking for it for a week now.

Surely the house isn't that big.

If you need a mug the Leeds section is open for business. Mugs no problem, but a bit low on match report stock.

Funny you should say that - I'm using my 89/90 Division 2 Champions mug as back-up.

* It was okay when I bought it, but it's a bit leaky at the back now. *

Thinking of changing my van for work. The one that i have has over 200000 miles on the clock and smokes like a good un when i put my foot down.
But im reluctant to change.

Sounds like the van has served you well Badge. Embrace the change!

I'm a pencil man, always have been, always will be. HB All the way for note taking but the one ive been trying to eek out at work is now only an inch long. seems a waste now to break into a brand new one so ive found another half used one. Trouble is its a 2H and its driving me mental. But ill pull through

They've given me a new chair in the office. This one spins ok but is more difficult to propel across the office. As well as being red!

I've asked for the old one back.

You aren't embracing the change FC. -23/10

Lots of things have changed for me in the last 16 month, and I love it.
sheeps

One of them is I have the dog clipped more frequently.

Much better.

Ace!

In the last ten months Iíve shattered my right elbow, completed and passed a university course, moved house, and started lifelong treatment for hyper familial hypercholesterolemia. Change? I laugh in the face of change and tweak the nose of comfort zones. And on top of all that Iíve bought a new pen. There arenít many left like me Iíll tell thee.

Blimey that sounds a mouthfull

Dear Mr LD, we at the council have been thinking. This arrangement we have, the one where you have finally got it into that numb skull of yours, you know, the one that says the bin emptying day is Thursday...
You remember don't you how you had only just got used to it being on Wednesday when we changed it a year or so ago

Well we have now decided to change it back to Wednesday.


This will be a tester but i am willing to embrace the change if not the bin men.
Grind

Where's my fucking mug!

That freak hasnt chucked it into the street as he with the papers

Wednesday to Thursday, and then Thursday back to Wednesday? This is seismic. It's throwing an epoch on its head and then kicking it in that aforementioned head. If it was happening to somebody else I'd fear for them but someone who sneers at an adaptability challenge like this as your good self does, will see it to its end and thwart the fuckpigs at Kirklees Council.

Bin day is Monday you idiots!
sheeps

Wednesday.

I just take my lead from Carol next door, never a problem.
Dock

Thursday. Recycling bin one week then normal bin the week after. We don't fuck about in the East Riding I'll tell thee.

Won't her windows fall out?

Bin day is whenever I want it to be - this is the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave and nobody takes trash from anybody (you have to take it yourself).

We've been doing fortnightly collections for years.

Two green bins, a blue and a black. Anyone beat that?

What are the two green bins for?
fartcatcher

One day someone nicked my green bin. So I phoned up the council and asked for a new one. Then the person who nicked the original one returned it.

Down side is that they take up half the drive.

Hehe, that'll teach you...

I took all my stuff yesterday. That is all.

'kin tip alters its opening hours at this time of year. You cant rely on anything these days

Fucking mayhem at the top of Chapel Hill. They've only gone and altered the synchro system of the traffic lights. Traffic backed right back down to  where the Changing Lights used to be, snarled along Lockwood road almost to the Shoulder. Its alright though, i'm walking

When we moved last year we were using a small branch of Morrisons in Brough, but just before Christmas we found the far superior Morrisons in Beverley. Twelve miles to Beverley rather than the four to Brough but we embrace the fuck out of change in our house.

It's one of the many things I admire about you.

For nigh on forty years I have shaved at tea time. Now I have inexplicably started shaving in the morning. What the fuck is happening to me people? its bloody anarchy I tell thee, especially with the old razor still rasping away
Grind

I'm sure hairy biscuits is a euphemism waiting to happen.
Dock

Usually have a 'Boot Cut' preference for jeans but just bought a 'Slim Cut'* pair, same goes for some rather natty smarter trousers that have tapered cuffs and are a nice shade of madras.

*Slim, not 'Skinny' because skinny jeans on men over 25 look fucking ridiculous. No need!
Late Doors

I agree, even more so with those so called grown up blokes who have their pants around their arse. I dont think anything looks more pathetic. That all said what in the name of sweet mary malone is a "nice shade of madras"?

The least he could have done was post up some colour swatches. A lot of laziness going on around here lately.
