Yeah, I don’t disagree with that. The last few jobs I’ve had people in to do have got about a £20 tip if I thought the price was reasonable aswell. But then again I like to think I’m not a tight cunt ‍♂. I don’t agree or disagree with it to be honest, it’s down to the customer.
My (ex) father-in-law always refused to give tips to mechanics, decorators etc because he maintained the price they gave you was what they wanted, and that was it.

I suppose if it's mates rates it might be different. The only person who does any work for me at my place (I have no command of DIY, I'm useless - can't even paint a wall correctly) is my Dad as he's one of those fuckers who can do anything (plumbing and electrics aside, that's a different couple of animals) and I always offer him some money and he always refuses it. Maybe he's filthy rich and just doesn't need it.

Was just interested to see it from the worker's perspective. I've always considered it fine to not tip unless something out of the ordinary gets done.

The last job we had there was a labourer working his arse off doing the donkey work (as they do) and he was the butt of all the jokes (could hear them as it was summer and the window was open). The poor cunt single handily dug up the driveway without machinery while the others fucked off. I wanted to give him specifically a bit extra but couldn't find a way to do it without the others knowing and without sounding like I'm pitying the bloke.

So I ended up spending the 100 quid I was thinking of getting him on some new gym gear. Ah well.

Fuck me, I moved house hopefully for the last time about 2 years ago, I tried to save ourselves a grand by moving all out shit in my work van and with the brother in law. It was horrific, never again. I’d pay the grand every time, they come in, box it all up and do everything, you literally don’t touch a thing. Fucking glorious.
When I flat shared I bought myself a flat pack desk with drawers. Assembled the (rather shaky) table myself, two years later though the drawer section was still in a pile to the side.

When I bought a flat for myself, I wasn't going to make the same mistake. I bought about 4k worth of furniture from IKEA, then paid for someone to assemble the lot.

So last Wednesday night I was sitting at home relaxing and eating my dinner when the missus handed me a card. I asked her what it was she just said “Happy anniversary” I was confused because she was a day early but she told me to open and read anyway.

She got real excited as I was reading. Got to the bottom and it said for me to pack a bag, get a mixture of warm and cold weather clothes, decent shoes and be ready by 5am Thursday morning.

Confused again I was like be ready for what? I’ve got to work tomorrow.

At this point she showed me an email thread dating back a few months of her talking with my boss about my work loads and possibilities for leave. My boss is a good dude and was onboard, lead me to believe I’d be flat out but approved the leave. In all the missus had organised 3 days plus the weekend off work.

Got my stuff together at 5am a friend turned up took us to the airport. Still not knowing what was happening or where we were going we did the check in. Only found out when finally handed my boarding pass. We were flying down to Hobart in Tasmania (the island at the below the Aus mainland for those who don’t know). Got there straight to a hire place. Picked up a camper van.

So we’ve been cruising round the island sleeping in the van. All organised and paid for by the missus to my complete surprise!!

Geez I’ve got one of the good ones lads!!

Any chance I can take your wife/missus off of your hands? She sounds ace. What a great thing for her to do.

I hope you have the best of times Sam.

If I can't have your wife Sam can you find me one just like her?

Glad you had a good trip, hold on to these moments. Good news about the watch too. Mrs Sam sounds ace.

I've just come out of a long relationship so I'm kind of steering away from women for some time. Maybe next year, maybe.

A successful trip for you my friend. I'm pleased as fuck for you.

What?

Expand.
There’s not much more to it really. She can and often does have a orgasm while giving head. She’s quite into BDSM and a D/s dynamic, so it’s got to be quite forceful with some spanking/hair pulling etc thrown in for good measure, but she can achieve a full blown (hehe) orgasm on a fairly regular basis.

i have google ad choice and the mike turned off on my computer. i have never once searched for showers or been advertised them, but i am about to put a new one in the spare room.

how the fuck did i just go on youtube and get advertised showers?

talking about it near my phone? pretty sure nothing on there is even actively connected to the computer, i never made a utube account for the phone or did anything to link them. but obv they are the same name and log into the same emails and stuff. what i paid for by card? but that is a shower so they would know i don't need another one.

helluva fucking coincidence if that is all it is.

fuck skynet.

It's getting pretty insane with that stuff, I was speaking about someone the other day, half hour later he popped up in my YouTube suggestions, he's not famous or anything. Same when discussing getting a bookshelf, suddenly had them popping up on the insta sponsored ads.
