    Jamie Oliver' has shut down I think about 21 out of 23 of his restaurants.
    He had ploughed about £14,000,000 in 2008 and about £10,000,000 I think later and then a further £4,000,000 back in 2017 of his own money (my figures may be incorrect?)

    His staff are moaning about his £6,000,000 mansion and his wealth but they have no money and will probably lose their homes.

    TOO BAD!

    Life sucks. (sorry about the stutter) let me see.....

    He had been investing his money into a failed business and they want him to carry on until he loses all his fortune so that they can keep their jobs!
    Go get another one at McD0nalds!


    When I was young....

    (here we go again....)

    I worked for £8 a week at Wrights & Dobson's and when I wanted to leave, none of the staff spoke to me for a week.

    I got another job at Woolpack Hosiery as a Despatch manager because I was cheap at £15 a week and used to get salt in my cup of tea because I did not have my tea break quick enough and had not set the table for the Middle Staff who looked down on the Lower Staff and looked up to the Upper Staff.
    They never spoke to me for three days because I used to give Ruth the machinist manageress a lift home every day (lived near me)
    I had 5 staff working for me (21 years old) and each earned about £80 a week.
    I wanted a raise and they refused so I left and no one spoke to me for one fortnight because I was selfish!

    It made me unemployable because I walked out and had a better life drawing 50 pence more on Employment Benefit.

    I lost half my friends and family who disowned me because I was useless.

    Society had to retrain me because I was happier drawing 50 pence a week more without working than to get 50 pence a week less doing 40 hr a week.

    It was 'kick ass time' after that I became over qualified (who are you?)
    Well.......what can I say?

    Now I pop into McDonalds and sit in a corner away from the madness for a hot drink and a veggie burger.

    The local yobos come in and trash the restaurant as I complain about my meal being cold and filth all around the place. So I get kicked out instead...because I am the trouble maker and the ones who eat and drink in filth are meant to be easy going .

    So I think I will just go to Pizza Hut instead next to the Sikh Temple and ask for a Margarita Pizza but instead get Tabasco sauce, by which I am told that they had run out of Margarita.

    As I am belching flames and blowing out my coffee and hence told:- "Well no one else is complaining!!"
    (I ain't told you about the other end being at the mercy of the lock and key)

    How I suffered!

    I have to also say that our biggest problems are with plumbers.

    We had been let down so many times that in order to decide upon their services, I have to 'press their buttons'

    If they can tolerate me on the telephone, I know that I can deal with them in a constructive way when they do the job.

    When I looked at this advert, I started getting pictures in my head.
    Perhaps you do as well?

    The pictures that they were laughing at you. That their prices were high and that they thoughts o much of themselves and little for their customer's

    I made reference that to them that I thought that the advert conveyed a message of order to0 see if they were indeed nasty.

    They were....and straight away accused me of arguing.

    That was enough for me, and saved me time to meet up with them.

    Another plumber I found okay and when I met up with him apologised because I wanted to know his tolerance level.
    He said it worked both ways, but WE the customer end up the worst when we have to pay a large deposit and having to wait for months to finish the job. We literally will lose money by not being able to rent. So upsets a few but rather them than us!

    The other plumber who had disappeared took our bog of the wall and our bathroom smells like Trowell Sewage Works.
    (nearly killed the cat) Waiting 2 weeks with no toilet is not very good.
    Especially when the charge solicitor rates.

    I don't care for the guy and his style, I think he's a joke lol, but people liked him a lot for a long while...I think he was very popular here in the US, but haven't heard much from him lately...

    Hi nivak

    I share your sentiment entirely.

    He was one of these healthy eaters who tried to change the world.

    Never knew he was big in the US but over here he had a few Italian chains.

    He was also a TV personality having a following.

    You may also have heard of Gordon Ramsey who did a lot of work over in America by trying to educate many restaurant owners as to produce better standards.

    I don't know how he got away with his arrogance...but he was really bossy and most of the chefs were scared of him. A kitchen sleuth

    I think Gordon Ramsay is a great chef, yeah he is very 'passionate' about his work lol, but also very entertaining watching his various shows like Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares...He's very popular in the US and has a somewhat new show called something like 24 hours to hell and back lol...

    I must admit that I had the preconceived thought that Gordon Ramsey was a bit of a moaner.
    Never really watched his programs all the way through except for snippets of highlighted controversy .

    Whilst downloading this video, I was reverted to my seat as he put his points across very professionally and indiscriminately.
    He spoke with certainty and without prejudice which made me watch his follow up.

    I found it particularly funny with this video when he said that he was going to eat his lunch

    He 'knew his onions' and certainly put that well across.

    He did some great detective work and really hammered into the restaurant owner for the way he was conducting his management.

    It showed controlled sternness and the fact that he came to do a job correctly, he was not going to be swayed by a misguided deliberation of cheating by the owner and showed true professionalism on his part.

    The man has to be respected, and I think this has been shown by his following both here and in America.

    Another bad day!

    We had a new central heating system fitted at our house in Eastwood.
    The plumber had to call back to fit a new toilet and we noticed that our old radiators which we placed in our back garden had been pinched. The bog cost £45 and he wanted paying again to fit it.

    He had put something like radiation down the old one the day before in case it was blocked? Never seen so much acid fumes.

    Robin Hood country and they nick anything. Together with the water tank, we were hoping to get a few hundred pounds scrap.

    They pay about £1.50 a Kg for steel. We have about 60 Kg of metal plus the copper water tank
    The plumber found it funny as all he could hear all evening was "Rob dogs!!"

    I said:- "I would not be laughing if I were you....that was your tip!"
    Can honestly tell you....they will nick anything around there. If you left your shoe lace outside, someone would pinch it.

    If that was not enough, the girlfriend took the old bog outside and told me when we were at Eastwood. We had to be at Newark at our other house but decided to drive back to Eastwood to put the bog back into the kitchen. If that was left outside, the burglars would think that we are rich and probably break in and steal the boiler off the wall.

    If that was not enough...'Robbing Pete' from the garage wants £300 to pass my Fiesta for it's MOT.

    Asked him not to keep tapping his calculator as it upsets me. It is like taking money from the church when they take from me.

    Puts me in a bad mood all day.

    We had the new manager from McDonalds paying us a complimentary visit.

    "Just could not help noticing that you are regular customers and hope that you keep enjoying our food?"

    So I asked:- "What happened to that other f*t b*st*rd who made some excuse that they were busy when my food was cold?"

    I said I could not care a s*d how busy they were, as it was not my problem.

    "Who was that?"

    " I still had to pay full whack!" (or rather she did)

    The only reason he laughed was because some of the other customers were chuckling away.
    (yer..they knew who it was alright!)

    I don't know about you guys...but when my gut is rumbling and the teeth comes down on that veggie burger and it is cold, I am not myself when I am hungry.

    Especially looking at some *** ******* manager with his gut hanging over his belt.

    I got a bit addicted to that. Wasn't stealing crap out of people's back yards, but I yanked out a ton of ancient telephony equipment and had a virtual copper mine. In one summer I pulled about $2K out of scrap. Promptly stuffed it into the engine of my motorcycle.

    We learnt today from the care lady looking after my mum, that whilst she was in Eastwood, she saw the 'scrap men' walking with our radiators that they had nicked from our back garden. Coming out of our street...what a coincidence.

    Thinking about putting the copper tank in bed with me as to wrap my arms around so it don't get

    Crime there is pretty bad I had been told. Load of needles in the ally ways and woe.....the people!!!

    People wear copper wristbands because they think that will alleviate arthritis. Wrapping yourself around a copper tank at night presents some interesting possibilities. Maybe help keep the jumblies in top shape .... ?

    Just being over zealous .

    Only get used to me after a

    Give you a laugh here.........

    I was just turning left at a junction and this yobo complete with 'life support' went straight across without even looking.

    So I just papped my horn and this is what happened.

    Looked a bruiser (bet you could sort him out....)I just wanted a quiet life as I saw him coming so I locked the car doors.
    He was thumping away ..if it was the Jag he would not have got away with it.
    I just use this car for a 'run-about' It get's 'bruised' all the time

    I even got a mug shot of him, complete with hate expression just in

    Had to stop at the traffic lights
