You're trying to push my buttons aren't you! But as you've already found out you're not any good at that!

I know these are only jokes, but it ain't fun getting old, particularly in these times.

Having elderly parents at risk in an aged care home isn't a joy, and not particularly humorous. 

I've come to the realization of late that it isn't that funny making light of the elderly.

Once upon a time maybe. But it caught fire. Apparently, if you strike two flints together .......

When I lived in York there was a guy going down the pavement in a mobility scooter and two wheels on one side went over the edge of the curb and it tipped over!!!!! Shopping and old person everywhere..carnage..

 

 

 

 

 

* I should add that no old person was injured in this event or telling of this story.....and I helped pick the sopping up and checked they were ok, but they swore at me and told me to **** off...

I know I can be an annoying sod, my wife tells me constantly.....no harm meant and hope all is ok, hard times.

Anyone else struggling with  a young teenager and this Fortnite shyte? Been around for ages I hear but he is fairly new to it...

I had a go at the weekend..I jumped out of this thing..my son shouted at me where to go....'go right..no go left..no don't go there..over there...' I landed and was apparently the first in the game to be knocked out..:unknw:

My son sat there with his hand over his face and his other hand out to give him the controller back....bastard...

My youngest (10) has played it for a while now. I've played with him a few times and yeah, I feel ya. It's not so much that Im bad at the game, it's the sly, condescending / smart arse comments I get from him AND his friends. Little **** heads.  

:tusk:

 My dad is 90 and I worry all the time about whether I'm going to catch the virus and give it to him. He most probably wouldn't survive. It freaks me out that others don't wear a mask or social distance at the moment which I think is a tad selfish of them. 

I understand where you are coming from but I also think in these hard times it important to keep a sense of perspective and a sense of humour as we go about our daily lives. Life can get too depressing otherwise.

Stay safe.

That's reminds me of when i worked as a shelf stacker in a supermarket in my teens and I put something on my CV along the lines of 'logistical management and strategic placement of goods received often working in a climate controlled environment'.....'expert advice provided on international goods, perishable items and .....blah blah blah lol

Ok listen up all you Tech heads!  I’m having probs with a Chromecast not picking up Wifi . Was told to plug it in to the downstairs tv , then once setup , plug it back in to the upstairs tv. Didn’t work....

Router is downstairs so I know the signal’s not as strong upstairs , but was told this should fix that :nono:

any advice?  :unknw:     factory reset maybe?  

Late reply and not to join in the comedy :)

 

 

If you have poor Wii upstairs which give router is downstairs (is likely the case). First thing is check what sort signa strength you get up stairs (I usually use my phone for that just walk around connectd to wifi and look at the signal strength). You might find that the signal is ok in some parts of the room.

 

But your options are buy a wifi extender, and go with that, although I haven't had great success with then especially cheap ones. In then end I go sick of it and as I'm working from home for COVID lashed the money on Google Nest Wifi. Pricey but I can recomend, fixed it I get great wifi through the whole house and backgarden now,
