Unfortunately, I wasn't there with Eric but I'd say he was probably 6 ft higher something guy.

Is he a developer? Those kind of skinny fat lads are usually developers. We have a few here who are skinny everywhere apart from a sizable gut. It's from sitting around on computers all day eating shit food and not doing a tap of physical exercise.

Booked into the Shard for dinner next weekend. The steak is £47. Without any sides.

Might just go for a starter.

Not a developer but you're right about the second part. He's rarely seen not sipping on a coke. He must go through two or three of them every day.

I'm looking forward to it, every now and then it's nice to just do something ridiculous.

Hope you're alright and the baby wasn't in the car or anything.

I was in two car crashes with someone I work with. Needless to say we don't like to travel with each other.

Hope you're OK Coco

I sold something on Ebay, sent the parcel off, and it came back untouched today with a note stuck on it. "Customer passed away, please dont send anymore"

He must have died between ordering and the parcel arriving 2 days later. Mental!

My accident, I was doing about 50mph and some guy who was parked in the hard shoulder to my left decided to do a U-Turn across the road as he needed to go the opposite direction.

Pulled right out in front of me and I hit him square on the drivers side rear door and wheel, and he had his <1 year old kid in a child seat in the back.

Both cars written off, and the only injury was my finger getting burnt from the airbag blasting along it or the gas or something. He got a police caution also.

fuck, sounds same as my impact so, except I was just pulling out of estate and got stranded on ice. Yeah she cut her finger too :) Think it was her 3rd or 4th crash and she is probably mid 20s

Yeah they said it would be written off cos the airbag going off would have meant the whole dashboard being replaced which with labour meant the cost would have been more than the value of the car :lol:

The chassis also snapped on the angle at the front corner there also.
