  2. People who swear a lot might think they sound angry or 'hard', but it actually comes out comical and stupid. We've all been walking through the city centre when you've overheard this type of conversation. I was f***ing walking down the f***ing street and this f***ing car came down the f***ing road and the f***ing idiot who was f***ing driving it nearly f***ing ran me over, so I f***ing yelled at him to f***ing look where he was f***ing going, and he just f***ing ignored me and f***ing carried on and f***ing nearly hit another f***ing car coming the other f***ing way. And his friend just loo

  10. I've watched some of the events but will be watching a lot more when the athletics starts. We've been to 2 Commonwealth Games, the Edinburgh one in 1986 and Victoria in 1994, and loved being there for the atmosphere, these ARE called the Friendly Games and rightly so. In 1986 we headed up to Edinburgh with no tickets and no accommodation, plus two little boys aged 6 and 9. We found a decent hotel just outside the city and on the first morning went to the stadium, almost knocking Steve Cram over as he crossed the road without looking right and left. Went into the Ticket Returns office to

  13. Don't get me wrong i can 'swear' with the rest of em' but i think theres a time and place for it, i worked all over the country and obviuosly heard folk swearing everywhere,however not as much as Nottingham,which i reckon must be the swearing capital of England. Am i alone in this ?

  14. Same thing when I was growing up........I cannot remember my parents, aunts or uncles swearing even though they were all exWW11 army and navy. The exception was the rare 'bugger' or 'bloody'. In fact, Grandma had a saying whenever she heard someone swearing - 'Those that swear have a very limited vocabulary'. As for the f and c words, I first heard and used those towards the end of primary school but would never use them in front of my parents - I wanted to live a bit longer! Nowadays, it seems swearing is part and parcel of every day conversation and even the f word is being accepted in

  17. I grew up on a council estate in the 50s and if we heard bad language from anyone they were considered real common,certainly it was'nt used by my parents except in very rare heated arguments.Dad was a 'railwayman' and i am sure at work he could hold his own. In his last few years he came to live with us and it was a very busy house with teenage children and at times i must admit some choice swearing took place.he had been with us about a fortnight when he Summoned me into the 'parlour' which was his room,and informed me that too much swearing went on in the house,i apologised and to

  19. I don't think they knock off work any earlier. They have just had the benefits of a healthier lifestyle, better nutrition, fewer pollutants in the air and water, etc. Also better equipment and techniques. Many of them also have larger populations to draw from. Take a look at any country based games - the Winter Olympics are one of the best, then divide the countries population by it's medal count - the results become VERY interesting!

  21. *acking hell Firbeck'........LOL,...ive spent years in East and South London in fact had an office in Mitchum (surrey) and i tend to lump the Essex accent with those areas as well, i worked with some amazing 'Geezers' who swore all the time,and being the way i am had brilliant banter with em,and i did find em funny. I appreciate what you say about some of the unsavoury types,we get them everywhere don't we.

  24. Yep, I know what you mean, I never took on the accent meself, but it wouldn't do to laugh in front of some of these characters! On the way home from working at the bike centre, usually about 5:00pm, I have to cycle through the pedestrian only market square. At the bottom end is the Jobcentre, then Tesco's on the left, a fountain, then two really rough pubs with chairs and tables outside. Once they've got their benefits, the scumbags, usually the younger one's, call in at Tesco's, get some cheap booze, sit around the fountain all day and get slaughtered. By the time I'm coming back they're stag

  26. #7 SOMEHOW Firbeck the Essex way of swearing does'nt sound so vulgar' for instance, they pronounce the 'f' word with an A' and the 'C' word, and i almost find it funny.

  27. Noooo, Essex is the swearing capital of the country, even the immigrant East Europeans have learnt a few very choice words. Like you Benjamin I can swear as well as the rest of em, but not very often and certainly not in public. My mother never even said 'bloody' and used to have a go at me for saying it, she would even now. In all the years I knew him, I only heard my father say the 'F' word once, so significant was that at the time, I still recall the occasion and it was over 50 years ago. He'd come back from work on his bike, soaked to the skin, cold and in a foul mood, not being able to fi

  28. You're not wrong Benjamin. Was only yesterday when walking with my friends 1 year old daughter in the pram that there was a man next to me effing and blinding it! Also dislike people who constantly swear to get their point across via social media I.e. Facebook!

  33. I have my own small business working as a contractor in the private domestic rental sector and recognise everything posted above. There are shite tenants but equally there are shite landlords and letting agents to. If ever you are thinking of renting out a property get yourself a good letting agency. Anyone can set up as a letting agent and some have little or no idea what their responsibilities are so you need to check their qualifications. You might have to pay a little more for their services but at the end of the day they will do their best to look after tour interests.

  35. A verse by Geoff Freeman‎St. Ann's Well Road Pre. Demolition ( 1970) Online Community. I thought it worth sharing on here: Here's a poem about somewhere familiar to us all; SKEGGY Through the smeary car window there dazzling comes, The fierce fractured light of bright battering suns, The pier, and the dunes, and the steps to the shore, The family and dog come to Skeggy once more, The welcoming sweep of the dear childhood beach, The quick cups of tea and a Waggon Wheel each, The bright flags of towels laid like banners on sand, And the feel of the Skeggy Beach heat on my hand. The sand a m
