    So we don't go to Fuengirola anymore, which is a pity because we had some lovely holidays there, before her money grubbing bitch of a sister took the lot.

    I can never understand how families get this shit wrong. I know loads of friends and we have family who have given more, or all, to one sibling. I only have one child so it is easy. But you just divvy up what shit you got equally between your kids. How hard is it?

    Not alway that easy
    Some kids go off the rails with drink drugs or gambling.

    Some of them marry arseholes. So in those cases sometimes leaving one particular child too much could end up killing them or they could lose it all within weeks. Things like that could make decisions difficult

    In my case my mother had two half siblings. We'd always had good relations if a little distant but it all changed as their father, my granddad got ill. When he died she got a call from the solicitor saying she was getting nothing from her father's will which we learned was a new one he signed two days before he died (complications from dementia) my mother's half sister had done all in her power in the last months to isolate their father and my mother was kept out....

    When she found out that she had been written out of this new will my mum didn't challenge it - she thought it unseemly to fight over money like that so the money went to the brother and sister from the first marriage (my brother and I lost two small trust funds)

    As a post script some years later she had a call from the partner of her half-sister to tell her the half sister had died, my mum being the caring and lovely lady she was, was upset and asked when the funeral was "two months ago" they replied.

    My mum asked how her half-brother was taking it, "that's why I've called", said the half-sister's partner "he died yesterday... just thought you should know" and put the phone down

    Families eh

    Everything was divided up by 7 and anything in the house was asked and agreed too when my dad died. It happened that the younger ones took most as us older half had similar stuff anyway. Somethings people were more attached to than others, like the socket set in my shed. Althouh everyone agreed that the tools are still fathers so it's borrowable if you need anything.

    We sold the house and ended up with a bit each, a few got less as they had borrowed so that came off their share. A few spent it all on nothing and still haven't paid their share of the headstone cost, which pisses me off.

    Who are calling an arsehole?
    It's Mr Aresehole to you sonny Jim.

    I'm the good 2nd marriage guy... Mrs S's 1st husband was the cause of much unpleasantness and wasone of those men who exercised mental control/torture over his women.
    The Mrs took up with him when she was 18 and Mum and Stepdad tried tobully her into seeing him for what he was.
    They tackled the problem totally wrong, but of course big sis kept telling them they were right.
    DEspite apparantly smoking the peace-pipe and forgiving and forgetting the Mother had her mind continually poisoned by big sis.
    To our faces Mum and big sis were nice as pie...
    Then when Mum was diagnosed as terminal ill my Mrs gave up her job to be able to nurse Mum in her own home.

    This particular forum advert can fuck right off. Then it can fuck off some more. And when it’s finished fucking off, it can fuck off again.

    They’re syndicated Google adverts, which are based on your browsing habits plus Google‘s invasive tracking of your internet activities as a whole (including stuff like searches and YouTube).

    The website just has a placeholder, Google fills it with absolute shite advertising for things they think you’ll be interested in, owing to the (vast) amount of data they have on you.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    I’m assuming it’s pay-per-click style advertising?
    I’d still feel a bit dirty though.

    Literally exactly what happened to a lad that I used to work with. Early 20s his mum passed away and with the money he bought a Nissan GTR and liked to party. Was an absolutely sound lad normally but the drink and drugs messed him up, he ended up going away for a few years for battering a girl he’d been with for 2 months, and it was the third time and girl he’d done it to.

    Sounds like my missus’s stepbrother, proper twat, used to stub fags out on his girlfriend then hospitalised her one day with a beating. I’m surprised he’s still walking, ended up on smack and then it was everyone else’s fault.
    He’s still not right now twenty years on.

    Last week I was offered a job in Nottingham which I gladly accepted. After years of mooching around London and the South East, I can finally go home.

    Sad to say that local estate agents are chipping away at my reverie. Every time I try to enquire about a property I either recieve no answer or get someone on the end of the line who can't help. "I'll get a colleague to call you back," is what they say. Yeah, right.

    The rental market around town must be in rude health if agents can afford to ignore people who are practically waving cash in front of them. Madness.

    Just had a really bad night's 'sleep' with my back.
    It's always something really innocuous and ridiculous that sets it off. Last time was about 6 or 7 weeks ago. All I did was lean forward to look at the price on a plant at a garden centre.
    This time I was twisting round to wipe my arse after having a shit at work yesterday.
    On getting home yesterday teatime, my OH's face quickly turned from concern to absolute hilarity when I told her how I did it.

    Get to a proper chiropractor. I've had next to no issues since one sorted me out.

    Did you manage to complete the wiping process or did you go home in pants with more skid marks than brands hatch

    When I get a sciatic attack I find the best remedy is simply to hang from a pull up bar.

    I don't think I've had this problem with it before. It's in the muscle over towards my side. Most of the time I feel nothing at all, then move in a certain way and I get this sudden great crampy spasm. It gradually eased yesterday evening before causing me problems in bed.

    The old ibuprofen gel is working wonders on it today.

    No issue with skids - I wiped through the pain barrier.
