Got it for free
You don't ask, you don't get.
If I pop in there this weekend and have to stand, I will be slightly vexed
So it's not closing? Oh my!
Wouldn't put your face too near that stool Nanker Phelge, dunno where it's been.
What's with the Dominos sign post guy that's been lurking about outside the white hart? Poor bugger. Not a nice job.
Up my arse...
I've sniffed it for familiars...
IKR! I saw him changing into his costume on the street yesterday. He's been there all week. He spent a long time waving at my fascinated 5 year old the other day. Imagine having to stand there all day long in that suit. Shit job.
He was outside West Norwood station when I went to work at 8 and again when I was coming home at 6. Dressed as Spiderman.
There were a gang of them outside East Dulwich Dominos the other day. They all looked very unhappy.
I got to use the brand new self-service checkouts at the Co-op this morning. Nothing to report other than they work, but at present they only seem to accept cards- no cash.
For those interested in such things, the machines are the same type as those found at Lidl, which make that highly enjoyable beeping noise whenever one puts something in the bagging area after scanning it.
People. Cashiers. People.
Fucking machine shit.
I agree with the sentiment and prefer to used manned tills, but my principles start to crumble at the ">3 people in front of me + just one cashier on duty" threshold.
You are letting them win.
The queue busters will come
The machines are crap. I refuse to use them now. More bad queuing in there too...
Fitting final night for White Hart.
Bar brawl and cops.
I wasn't there....nothing to do with me...
Me and Mrs Cartoon are finally moving, to a small place of our own not far from where we live now. As there's stuff here we won't be able to keep, I'll be offering things here that folks can have for free. So, if anyone would like a large hamster-cage - 2.5 ft x 1.5ft x 1ft, perfectly clean, one careful owner, let me know. You can collect it from our place, it'll fit on the back seat of a car, or it's a light but awkward carry. Suitable for rats, gerbils or goblins too.
Just how long does it take for a utility company in this country to replace a short section of pipe?
Was this a photo taken after Freddie Starr called round?
Does our friend with the piercings still work in coop? I hope he hasn't replaced by a machine?
Give him my hello next time you go in
We've just lost our water supply. Anyone else?
Nope. There was a burst main in HH earlier. Wonder if that's got something to do with it. Or maybe it was caused by the power of the eclipse.
Thames Water's website is reporting a burst main in the area so I'm sure it's that. Water has just come back a bit in bursts so might not need to go out and buy a big bottle for the night with any luck.
News just in (put it here cos I can't see a WD thread):
ATTEMPTED MUGGING, WEST DULWICH STATION:
Tsken from WN FB.
Hi everyone, not a great post to have to share but just so everyone is aware and can stay vigilant:
At about 08:20am this morning an attempted mugging and assault took place at the beginning of the alley that runs alongside West Dulwich station (next to Acacia Grove)
The assailant was a man (18-25) dressed in a red hooded jacket and wearing a gas mask and they escaped (empty handed) down Acacia Grove.
Obviously please contact the police if you witnessed anything or know of any residents with CCTV on Acacia Grove.
Most importantly, please keep your wits about you and stay safe! Hopefully this is just a very isolated incident in our otherwise fantastic community.
Burst water main on junction of Norwood Road and Deronda Road. No water supply to some places as a result.
It was NOT me.
