My car had to go in for repair and I have to dust off my bus pass. So it's a case of slip on the bus with eyes down and hope the local interesting person with a very long medical history doesn't become intrested in a new face on the bus and come and tell me all their wonderful of the last times I used a bus the interesting person decided to go 8 mile past their bus stop because they hadn't finished, I thought at one point they were going to follow me onto the next bus and try and invite themselves for tea at my place

LOL I worked with a guy once who had so many operations and spent so much time in hospital we worked out that he must have been at least 110 years old.  We used to joke that the surgeons sowed a zip into his belly so they could just unzip him to take a look inside instead of cutting him open so often lol

Thanks a lot.  on the return trip I ended up  almost getting drunk from the fumes coming from the person I sat next to my wife just got a nutter. The job the car went in for was done  but another thing I asked them to check on might require special bank withdrawal  i've  got make a trip to the green grocers for the withdrawal  tools a banana  or cuecumber  and a bag to put them in while in the bank

My brother in law went through a terrible time over about 15 years, at one point he had 3 operations in two and a half months if he layed down with his shirt off you could play noughts and crosses on his belly . It was during  this time that he found out that he'd  been misdiagnosed  for the last 50 years

I know where you are coming from Paul. I hate it when you ask someone how they are and they tell you their full medical history.

 I tend to find not too bad is the best answer or at worse could be better . Now If there's a possibility  of doing a set of scribble sbout it then I'm  away with it but people can see at a glance if they're  intrest.

My wife is more than willing to listen To all the gory  details

Comment by dee harris on July 18, 2018 at 12:04am your brother in law.  but the bus story was hilarious

He was lucky he was nearly. Lost a couple of times, some people on the buses at one time would have been in care homes but funding cuts have closed many homes
