Top lady, unsurprising to read the Michelle Obama connection. That is also what parenting should like

Parental dilemma
at 14:13 2 Jun 2020

Really tough call. Going with her was the obvious but just seen that she doesn't want that. I'd feel really proud of my daughter for going but dont think I would let her go. If she does go can you ask if she will put Lambert Out on the other side of her banner please?

Sending Kids Back to School - What have you done
at 13:49 2 Jun 2020

As I reported before I am a Chair of Governors at a junior school, yesterday we extended the opening to year 6 and it was an overwhelming success. 85% of the year group attended, if my children were that age i would have sent them to school

New update. He called me back and said he has no idea how it happened and they don't have a record of it. I offered to buy it but they can't take payment over the phone, he has now agreed for me to go to my local store and pay for it with 10% off. I am such a model citizen and hopefully the good karma will mean PRP is fired today without a payoff

A moral dilemma for you....
at 10:40 2 Jun 2020

We were due to go to a lodge with a hot tub for Easter but it was obviously cancelled so we decided to spend the refund on a lay z spa to try and make up for the disappointment. They were obviously ridiculously difficult to find anywhere but one morning I decided to just check Homebase again and see if anything had changed. They had the exact one we wanted showing as available, I assumed it was just show as an error when I tried to checkout but it didn't, the payment went through and I received my confirmation. The next morning however I got an email to say they had made a mistake and they weren't really available, I had the option of accepting a cheaper but virtually identical alternative and a partial refund or a full refund.i went for the replacement and partial refund and they said it would be with me in 10 days.

About 3 weeks or so passed and I heard nothing but in this time my wife found out that her office was closing down and her and all of her colleagues were facing redundancy. It was a rough time and it was her birthday approaching, she told me that no matter how trivial it seems the hot tub arriving would make her birthday a lot better. I tried calling homebase but the lines were switched off and just an automated response, the only contact was an online webform but that just prompted a generic reply. Social media was also bring ignored with dozens of requests per day for updates. I decided to try something different and sent an email to the assumed email address of the CEO and politely explain what had happened and ask for an update on delivery and/or refund.

A few days later a senior manager called me and said he is going to get it sorted, I explained the birthday was a couple lf days away and how it would mean so much if it could come then or at least have a delivery date by then to know when it would come in the future. The bloke played a blinder, he had one booked to come the day after but then managed to sort it and it came on her birthday and the partial refund was duly processed. A confirmation for the day after was also sent to say it is on its way but I contacted him to say the other one was now delivered and to thank him so much. He reied to say they would also be sending a cheque as compensation to say sorry, I told him it wasn't necessary but he insisted they would (it hasnt ever arrived though). I then emailed the CEO to say thank you and say what a great job this chap had done.

Anyway now to the point. Some 3 weeks after all this another hot tub has just been delivered outside my door. No contact or notes but it has my name on it from Homebase. When we got ours a girl at work contacted me to find out how because she had desperately been trying to get one for her daughter to make up for missing a big party for her birthday and the cruise they were supposed to go on. We were on a call together this morning when I realised what had arrived and she has pleaded for me to sell it to her. She says will drive from Kent to the Midlands now to collect it and pay the list price. I really want her to have it to make her happy but what should I do?

I think I should try and contact Homebase and explain but she is worried they will come and take it back even if I offer to pay. The younger me would have just waited and then sold it for profit.







Yes I know it is a material thing and a 1st world problem

That is what I mean though. People habe gradually tested the repercussions and realised that there aren't any. The next lockdown will be ignored. I predict my work will return properly in January if we have no further spikes, if we have another one then work will he destroyed fot amother year

I seem to be the only one that remembers how bad things got under BFJ. He inherited the best relative squad for the level and utterly wasted it. When he tried to rebuild he was the worst of the lot, his signings were worse than Jewell, keane or Hurst. Another year and he would have taken us down

Measures are put in place for speeding, cameras and fines. Nothing seems to be in place for social distancing.

It doesn't exist for parts of cities and hasn't for a long time, if ever. I manage a local park so view the cctv daily, there are mass congregations every day. In the evenings we have car fulls in the car park and last week one evening this spilled into a fight involving 15-20 people. The police were called and duly arrived, not only did they do nothing about the fight they didn't even do anything about the volume of people. The police left and the gathering continued.

it is officially dead due to a catalogue of incidents. It started with VE Day, it was virtually encouraged to push the rules and various dodgy information was fed to the press and not corrected, we then had the vague messages from the government in the easing and the complete stopping of enforcement of the rules. The Cummings story took it to a new level and now the rules being demolished even further means it is dead in its current form. Will it ever be possible to get the country to comply again? Certain parts of the population have ignored it throughout and it hadnt been enforced, i can't see a 2nd attempt being adhered to

I didnt make it to work. When I went in the next day I was called in to say why wasn't I at work by the GM because my boss was on holiday. I pointed out that I was clearly far too hungover and he pointed out that I hadn't booked holiday and it was left a bit frosty. My boss returned the following day and the GM spoke to him about it but my boss said of course I didn't expect him to come in if they won. He said he would have done exactly the same
