    Just a wayward observation, I am working here earning the money so I can maintain our MP's standard of living so they can live on those big houses and drive Jaguars. In the good old days men in the production industry would go to the toilet with a newspaper hidden under their overalls, emerging 20 minutes later ready to voice their opinions on how the country is being run or who's fault it was when the trains were running late. I knew a bloke that on the stroke of 11am every day without fail would grab his paper and loose himself for a whole hour and nobody said a thing, this went on for 10 years :mad:, anyway back to point, why today do people take their phones into the toilet with them!! :rolleyes:.

    Because they believe they are so important that The World would stop if they could not be contacted at once,,,,same for all the sad people who walk along our city streets with their phones held out in front of themselves not looking where they are going,,,BUSBY:):):):)

    More to the point, why can't folk ( and I include myself in this ! ) stand still when taking a call ?
    I must wear out more shoes pacing up and down while on the fone than at any other time !

    That's why they're called "mobile phones" - it's funny when you see someone who was sat at a desk, jump to their feet and start pacing around. :call:

    Its called 'doing the phonewalk'

    If you ask someone just where they walked and for how long they wouldnt have a clue.

    Last week I got home from work and decided to have a bath. I dont normally have my phone on my person (it lives in my handbag) unless I have been on a building site. This fateful evening it was in my trouser pocket completely forgotten about. I ran the bath, started to strip off and my phone flew out of my trouser pocket, hit the sink and plopped into the bath!
    Despite 4 days in a bowl of rice in the airing cupboard it is dead (although it smells nice!). Luckily it is a work phone and insured.

    Don't take your phone in the bathroom!

    Sitting in reception of a tyre company yesterday, a young mother was fixsated with her phone trawling thro messages and texting while her young, about 2-3 year old, son was trying to get her attention "Mum mummy mum" she completely ignored the little fella, in the end he came over to me to show me his "Zoo Book". we had quite a conversation about a lion and a zebra:clap2:, a lot of uhhs deres and ooks were said:doh::laughing::wink:

    I worked for a while at Reyrolle Switchgear in Hebburn (long gone) which at the time employed thousands and the unions ruled the roost.
    There is a story about one of the shop floor workers returning to work after the lunch break collapsing and rolling around on the ground just outside the gatehouse. His mate stopped and asked him what was wrong.
    "I'm really dying to go the toilet" he said
    "Well why don't you just go then?" His mate asked
    "What? In my own time?"

    This made me laugh, in my line of work we quite often use remote connection software so that we can remotely control our client's screen and guide them. Today whilst helping someone, I found myself pointing at my screen whilst saying "look, it's just here!" I guess I am just getting too old :D
