Copybook Blot

well after today's once in a lifetime comment by The Prof
I well a truly blotted my copybook by leaving on the car lights and radio when I went to pick him up after his very hard and long day in Cardiff
The car battery failed and we had to wait for an hour and a quarter for a jump!
Earlier I was the best husband since Prince Albert
Now I am a useless burke.......that has a brain the size of an average peanut!

  3. From someone who follows your blog but has never before commented, I think the Prof's second comment was a tad mean and insensitive. Things said like that can be hurtful especially as it was just an oversight on your behalf.

  5. You're going through the dreaded distracted retirement adjustment period. Don't despair; I retired 8 years ago and have almost recovered.

  7. An hour and a quarter for a jump must be a record for you, even in the wilds of Wales.

  10. Everyone has different talents; we can't all remember not to drain the battery but then again we can't all make people smile on a daily basis either!

  12. Married bliss. What a jerk. If he expects you to drive him he could at least get a vehicle that turns off the lights and radio when the car is turned off. Oh well, everyones entitled to a bad day.. and what is a burke.

  13. That's a good one

    He’s gay and he just doesn’t care
    So talk and you are free to stare
    But challenge his stand
    Or get out of hand
    He’ll knock you down and style your hair

  14. Well, hopefully there will be plenty of kissing and making up .. It wasn't the worst thing to ever happen. He will cool off and be himself again and feel bad for acting like a shrew.

  15. Annoying, but sh*t happens. Was there no charming pub to wait in, with a relaxing drink or two or four? Why don t your lights and radio shut off when you turn off the car, I thought all modern cars did that?

  16. Poor John - Chris, Get A Grip, lots worse could've heppened. I'm surprised your car isn't bossy like mine - it SHRIEKS at me if I do the slightest thing wrong ... drive ten yards without the seatbelt done up, not close a door, have something heavy on a back seat (so it thinks there's an unbuckled passenger, for goodness sake) Drives Me Demented ..... but would stop me leaving the car with the lights on.....

    Chris, kiss and make up time boyo

  17. Oops 🤔

    Love the quote.

  18. Waiting an hour and a quarter for a jump! That's outrageous. Normally I wait no more than ten minutes for one.

  19. Playwright Anthony Shaffer (the excellent 'Sleuth'), despite his twin brother Peter ('Equus', 'Amadeus' and more) being gay, could never resist including an unwarranted homophobic dig in his creations. He has the line in his play 'Whodunit?' -"Hell hath no fury like a poofter scorned!" When I first saw that play in around 1980, hearing the line hurt, though of course the audience thought it hilarious. Not sure how I'd feel about it now.

  20. Not to mention the biting tongue of a homosexual academic slightly inconvenienced. Ouch!
