Many chip shops still pay by cash when buying in. For sundries at least, so I'm told.

Must be common knowledge, their trucks have been robbed a time or two.

My dad worked in t'mill.

Nowt dodgy with his income, except it wasn't enough for what he did.

When i used to work at the tax office I used to enjoy it when they were investigating chippies and such as they'd buy chips for everyone over a few days, they just weighed them before we ate them to see if the amount of chips in an average portion tied up with their books etc.

The thing is, obtaining cash is easy (illegally at least) to attain and hide from the taxman. But getting rid of it is a different ball game. If someone gave you £40k in cold hard cash, how would you spend it? There are only so many pairs of trainers or polo shirts you can buy.

Petrol, weekly shop, drugs, charity shops, car boots, broken hoovers, buy car parts from ECP and pay in cash, the pub ... I could make it work very well for me, dripped away over the years

You buy a small loss making business and turn* it into a profit making business.

Be careful though. Money Laundering is also illegal.

Or, to put it in Citroën terms, to make a small fortune on a CX, start with a large one.

it does remind me when I was drawing cash from the cash machine to pay for REV, I was a bit worried if the bank would get suspicious, as I can only imagine how they would of reacted if I got asked and I (truthly!) told them "to buy an invacar!"

Turns out we've bought a Jarvis Cocker Spaniel.

A friend of mine has two Cocker Spaniels called Joe & Jarvis...True but ultimately dull fact

Was only kidding about our dog, he's actually a border collie.

 

 

He gives us £20 per week.

I took my dog to the vet the other day as I thought he had a sore throat. Turns out he's just a little husky.

Stupid questions (already answered on advert), which I ignored, followed by

 

'240 for car come tonight 50 miles tonight'

 

That's a big fat no

 

'Please take 240'

 

No

 

'Come right now manchester'

 

Still no

 

'240'

 

No

 

'220'

 

Is this some sort of reverse bargaining style?

 

'Is all I have'

 

If I said no to £240, why would I say yes to £220?

 

'That's all I have'

 

You said £240

 

'no I say I have 240 give you 220'

 

No now, no tomorrow, no forever

 

'ok'

I wonder if it's possible to pinpoint exactly when the average IQ of a British citizen dropped to a single digit number.

Who says they are British? There is only one explanation for this...

They must be illegal aliens

The national IQ recovered sharply in 2009, whats gone wrong since?

 

Completely agree, though sadly that fucking turbo moron just spawned countless more. Ryman/TOWIE/that braying gobshite woman off ITV daytime (doesn't really narrow it down, though)/etc.

Noticed a few " meal prep " places opening lately.  A few have newish landrovers and other large 4x4 type vehicles favoured by the recreational drug purveyors.

A lot less than you but. When I had my colonoscopy.  They removed a polyp. So sent away for tests for cancer cells, " standard practice, nothing to be concerned about.  Unless it's cancer " . You dont say really. Anyway cue a couple of weeks later and gets a call to tell me the results. " would you like the results now mr nulty?". Well yes . "Ok ". Then silence for a minute, thought I was on the jungle or someother shite tv contestant thing. "Results are all clear sir. See you in five years ". Wasnt worried about the result. But when they rang me I did have my doubts. So good luck sir for next week.

I've been at my job since 2005.
I'm what's classed as the number 2 on my shift.
I know the machines, do production paperwork cover the shift when our team leader is off.

So when I'm not tied to a machine I get to float about.

So I get loads of crap off the other operators for getting "easy shifts" all the time.

Pisses me right off.
Some of them I was working here while they were still in school shorts.

years ago , when soldering things together was an art , one chap had to come in extra extra early every day and switch on the solder baths .......

the rest of the day was spent parked on his arse reading the paper and doing odd jobs ..

until the new boss in school shorts came around and saw him ...reading the paper

and sacked him

the next day no production took place ..

he got his job back

Grumpy because my kids have been off school the last three days. Unwell with cough and cold also occasional throwing up. So no real sleep through the night cos they wake up. They seem to be over the worse now thankfully and normal service should be resumed for school on monday. Except that in the last hour I feel ill and started sneezing. So looks like it's my turn. Great.

Well I am having a really bad time ad expect sumpathy in abundance.

My jeans have holes in the knees (mainly 'cos I keep falling over) and so I have had to buy new jeans. I could have gone in a shop, but I bought fro the internet instead. Do I need to say they don't fit? They are massive around my waist and tight around my upper legs. Ho hum... Still, I will wear them until such times as they learn their lesson and do fit, Jeans are for life, not just for Christmas.

Id had my dad pick me up and drive me to @ruffgeezer to buy the silver laguna. We got to Spalding, dad on about mile 220, and I popped to santander. The feel of oh shit as the cashpoint just returned my card could be smelled.

Luckily the one next to it worked

No you don't, it's back in fashion again! This is useful as I've worn a set of knee holes into my nice Levi's. Mrs SiC was going to throw them out as apparently this means they are worn out, however I'm just being fashionable* and looking after the environment by continuing to get use out of them...

Sorry to have to do this, but I am really hacked the fuck off. It's more annoying because it all boils down to a little diecast car that's only a few quid.

In the Shite in Miniature II thread there is always a good deal of selling and swapping going on and has been for years. It's great and is pretty much my primary source of model cars now. All carried out amongst trusted shiters and up until now everyone has been absolutely honourable with no bother.

On 22nd November I posted up some Matchbox cars for sale and these were claimed on the thread.  However since that time, despite my repeated but polite attempts to complete the transaction, including provision of Paypal details and promises to the contrary, the buyer has wasted my time and failed to complete the deal. Now I am stuck with models which I feel I can't sell to anyone else because others can see that they have been claimed on the thread.

In isolation I wouldn't have ripped my knitting over such a small issue however I was going to sell fair few more diecast on here in January but now I feel that I can't do that anymore. The money would have been nice too. I could go to ebay but its too much hassle and of course it costs more to do it that way.

This is a regular poster on here and I am surprised and now thoroughly grumpy about it all.

Good day.
