I believe there was hand sanitizer stolen from a hospital in England.
I know shops have been out of stock of such things but think this was disgraceful.

I can not believe the state of affairs in Italy which is supposed to have one of the oldest populations.
Yes they are going to close schools but I wonder if this will help with the levels of the virus at all.

You kind of wonder if ol' Boris the Bellend is quietly putting out orders for all the secret Cold War era nuclear bunkers that the toffs and posh fuckers had built in the 60s to be reopened.

Is anyone else amazed that the sale of Corona beer has been impacted by people linking it to the virus?

Not really, no. The US is full of feckin' idiots.

Who else misses those big feck off manual cash registers you'd see in shops?
The ones that looked like they were made of cast iron and weighed about half a ton?

The cashier would push the keys, and there'd be these meaty sounding CLUNK-CLUNK-CLUNK WHIRRRRRRR KER-KLUNK before the cash drawer rattled open.

Cash register in 'Open all hours' was the best ever.

Is it just me, or that Chris Witty fella a weird looking cunt?

Like someone's let all the air out of Julian Fellowes.

I bought some clothing from a local shop who are selling online.

The items arrived and two were fine but one wasn't.
It was not colour I had ordered and there was makeup on the collar.

I returned it in plastic bag it came in and parcelled it up to post the following day.
I pointed out why I had returned it and they have now emailed to say I'm getting a partial refund. I feel shop should not have sent something that was clearly stained.
They don't refund postage which I knew but still think this could have been handled better.

Am I the only one who looks at old photos of family members, and even though you know it's that person (in this case it's my older brother when he was in secondary school) it doesn't look like them?

Is that weird?

You are entitled to a full refund and possibly even for your postage under these circumstances you outline. Contact your local trading standards office and get your money back!

Another thing about this whole Coronavirus business.

We're told it originated in China with some stupid bastard eating a bat at a "wet market" (whatever the hell one of those is).

I've a feeling that Patient Zero will eventually turn out to be the Chinese equivalent of an American college fraternity boy, and that he only ate the bat because -

A: He was steamin' drunk and his mates dared him to, or B: He was trying to impress a lassie.

Right, I don't want to put any of you folks off your feed, but I'm gonna be talking about bodily functions here.

Am I the only one, that when you go for a slash (or a crap) first thing in the morning, you have to go back a little later for a crap (or a pish as the case may be) because the first round's shaken something loose internally.
