I broke a molar a while ago and the dentist elected to extract it today "as a precaution".

What was supposed to be a routine ten minute job turned into a two hour marathon which involved grinding down the bone of my gum to retrieve shattered pieces of tooth, and indescribable pain as the dentist 'discovered' an abscess that didn't respond to anaesthetic.

I'm currently off my fanny on a hippo's dose of opioid analgesics, but when they wear of I feel I might indeed be a little irritated.

My silly old goat of a dad believing he is protecting us, somehow, by refusing to discuss a (probably serious) health matter with my sister and I. He knows we know something's up, but he appears to think it's a matter of pride that he keeps the details to himself, and that by not telling us, he's sparing us the concern. We don't even know if it's him or mum that's unwell, but since they're both in their mid-70s, it's hardly as if it comes as a massive surprise.

Bloody idiot. And now I can't stop worrying because of what I DON'T know, precisely the opposite of what he's trying to achieve by being stoic.

Suppose that’s not really a “little thing”, is it.

Not at all.
Perhaps part of him (by not talking about it), can also pretend it's not really happening.
No help to you & your sister though.

^^^ sorry to hear that Dan. We're all guilty at times of burrying out heads in the sand. Maybe this is his way of coping? Like Samba says, doesn't help you and your sis.

I get the impression they're waiting to get all the information before they tell me, but TBH, it just underscores how emotionally backwards my dad is. Fair enough, an 8 year old doesn't need to know every detail of their parent's health matters, but I'm 43, my dad's 73, and I'm aware that people don't live forever.

DNL, sorry to hear that mate, but he really needs to disclose all. Without being a harpinger of doom, it could be something you & your siblings should look out for in yourselves that is hereditary. I hope it isn't, & it all works out for you.

Yup. He's being a tit, and I'm not very impressed.

Christmas songs (not hymns).
I heard The Pogues, 'Fairytale..' yesterday, for the first time, this year. Twice & once today.
Of course, it's a decent song & it's with the much missed Kirsty but, how many times do we have to hear it every year? When it's not that, it's Jonah bleedin' Lewie or any of the other tedious songs which only get played, this time of year.
If you only ever write one song, make it an Xmas one. You'll be getting royalties for life, even if it's s**t.
Poor shop workers must be on the verge of going postal by Christmas day..

Items marked 'left on roof'.

Just heard, Google will be testing these in Finland, next year.
So, pretty soon after you click, buy, your purchase will be literally, winging it's way to you, maybe within minutes.

Fancying a cheeky choc or ten from the xmas roses/heroes/quality st/celebrations tub, without anyone else in the house knowing, but taking the tight-fitting lid off is SO noisy, that everyone knows exactly what you're doing...

The fuss been made over O2 having network problems. You would of thought the world was ending. I would love to send all these people back to the 80s and 90s and see how they cope.

We use O2 at work, and it's kind of entirely vital that I have mobile data at all times, otherwise I can't do my c*nting job. If it's not fixed before the weekend, I'll be unable to leave the house, because I'm On Call, and won't be able to work remotely.

However, yes, for c*nts who can't get to their instagram pages, yes they can eat one.

Apparently, TFL relies on O2 data network for bus stop data. That's a bit of a rubbish design dependency. One without a BCP, by the look of it. Still, the cuntsultant who designed it won't mind, because he'll already have been paid his millions.

Not in the slightest, but it doesn't mean I'm not aware how major IT projects are sh*tted up from start to finish.

The O2 thing isn't about coping back in time as our ****ing jobs then were not so tied into having a mobile ****ing ****y device...

Yes, I am one of those being affected, 02 = bunch of *****, well for today, I usually get on alright with them...

O2 can suck my balls today....
