Just wait until you ask what a Parmo is, the looks I got were not unlike those you'd give to someone who just drop kicked a Puppy into a wood chipper.
Is Parmo a northern thing?
It's Middlesbrough area of the North east, basically its what we know as Chicken Parmasan but they will use different meats and toppings and its kinda a comfort food staple, you can get it at pretty much any food oulet be it a Kebab shop and proper resturant.
Aye I'm near boro. Just thought everyone called them parmos lol

In the south no lol, not a lot of places carry them either much to my annoyance when I've missed them, just the odd place here and there that does Italian.

What on Earth is Chicken Parmasan? Parmo had me stumped, but the full name has me even more confused :? :lol:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parmo

Thats the Parmo version, otherwise its pretty much breaded chicken plasterd in sauce and you don't need a lot of it to feel full.

I'm sure I saw some in Clintons saying Mam, wasn't mothers day cards as it was a few weeks ago. Probably Valentines or something.
Mam. Must be American? Or is that just Mom? Does anyone else here use Mam? :?
There lots of people originating from the North East of England say Mam so probably enough for a market for cards.
Ive always used Mam. Maybe its a Welsh thing. Never Mammy or Mum or the dreadful Mom.

People paying for things

Started selling on ebay again but having to do it in lumps due to limited transport and there is always one that takes forever to pay which knocks everything out, I don't mind so much if they say in advance or if they let meknow theres a problem so I can arrange for it but not a flipping word out of most of them.

I got injured in 2018, Humbers pretty much a lost cause now as I can't work on it any longer and I had to put my M3 in storage due to not being really able to drive it very much atm (I manage about 20 minutes at most before it hurts like hell), all I've got atm is my Dads car occasionally until things get better.

No worries, it's all just waiting on the NHS who initially told me this would take 2 weeks and that my non-functional right leg when standing was normal lol, the damage in my back will never be perfect but hopefully I'll get my leg back and some form of movement without having to pop painkillers like smarties.

I can't be the only one when I say this.

This F***ing weather

Barely been able to wear more clothes than underpants and whenever I go out I virtually waterboard myself with my mask, been trying to keep my 30th Birthday gift on, an Automatic Seiko watch, so it stays wound and enjoyed and my wrist gets a swamp within 10 minutes.
The ones I really feel sorry for though are the poor sods having to wear the protective and Hazmat gear, earlier I saw a vid from China of a nurse on break literally pouring buckets of sweat out of her suit with no choice but to carry on after.

You're not. I'm sitting here at my laptop at two o'clock in the morning because I can't sleep because of the heat.

All the rich influential people claiming there is such a thing as "cancel culture", while they are still given a huge media platform to explain why they have been "cancelled".
