Posted:Alright, I can't take another of those bloody adverts!! Im not sure if others countries other than the good old U of K get those adverts that either talk about accident claims, insurance , or helping consolidate all your monthly repayments in 'one easy manageable monthly sum'!!



I really cant handle them anymore, the amount of times they are on, and they are all the same! not only do they have some very annoying people, the fat old guy with the Pi insurance, the eejit who dress up as napoleon to advertise for admiral with that damn parrot and even more annoying the elephant cos after all its ELEPHANT .co.uk, remebmer that its elephant.co.uk!



and whats with the call centres behind them? ive never seen people work like that in an office, just as the person tlaking walks into shot some person at a comp will sit up n walk over to someone else computer to relaxingly ask them something!



i stop writing just for the moment to say that since i started writing this i have seen 18 adverts of the like im talking about, its only been 10 minutes!



so anyway why are they all the same, no win no fee, no salesman will call, and there funny examples were they get the actors in to look really depressed and suddenly, wow Super Claims saved my marriage! we are now happy thanks to this great company etc blah blah blah, grrrr, and when they go oh i called such an such and suddenly i got 2400 pounds compensation, come on like u havent been told to say that! and i just got told that my mate saw it being filmed n they do actually get a script.



ok im done now, just fancied a rant, does nayone else get bugged by these things?



by the way exception to all of this is the lovely lady on YES car credit cos she is fit smile and she makes cars appear with the click of her fingers, hmmm my kind of girl

Posted:Konsti - that's from a song by a band called The Dubliners. The song is entitled The Sicknote and is one of my favourites (i would sing it when i was travelling to keep myself amused. And i taught it to the fluffy napalm one so she can annoy people with it too)



it goes like this:



Dear Sir, I write this note to you to tell you of me plight

and at the time of writing, I am not a pretty sight;

me body is all black and blue, me face a deathly gray

and I write this note to say why Paddy's not at work today.



While working on the fourteenth floor some bricks I had to clear;

now, to throw them down from such a height was not a good idea.

the foreman wasn't very pleased, he beeing an awkward sod

he said I'd have to cart them down the ladders in me hod.



Now, clearing all these bricks by hand it was so very slow,

so I hoisted up a barrel and secured the rope below.

But in me haste to do the job I was to blind to see

that a barrelful of building bricks was heavier than me.



So when I untied the rope the barrel fell like lead

and clinging tightly to the rope I started up instead.

Well, I shot up like a rocket till to my dismay I found

that halfway up I met the bloody barrel comming down.



Well, the barrel broke me shoulder as to the ground it sped,

and when I reached the top I banged the pully with my head.

Well, I clung on tight through numbed shock from this almighty blow

and the barrel spilled out half the bricks fourteen floors below.



Now, when these bricks had fallen from the barrel to the floor

I then outweighed the barrel and so started down once more;

still clinging tightly to the rope, I sped towards the ground,

and I landed on the brocken bricks that were all scattered round.



Well, I lay there groaning on the ground, I thougth I'd passed the worst,

when the barrel hit the pulley-wheel and then the bottom burst.

Well, a shower of bricks rained down on me, I hadn't got a hope

as I lay there moaning on the ground, I let go of the bloody rope.



The barrel than being heavier, it started down once more,

and landed right across me, as I lay upon the floor.

Well, it broke three ribs and my left arm and I can only say

that I hope you'll understand why Paddy's not a work today.








So i think maybe whoever posted it online was fibbing slightly.

sorry to burst your bubble but i couldn't let you stay deluded now could i?
