I'm having my loft converted at the moment and the roofers managed to cut through the phone wire attached to the telegraph pole last Monday. They have only been back today to fix it so we have been without a phone line since then

Now i'm not bothered about the home phone, that rings once every Preston Guild it was the lack of internet and wifi that killed me.

No wifi meant no streaming and a lot less time loafing about on here, it also disrupted my gentleman's specialist viewing of an evening (which was more annoying than anything, think i need to see an addiction expert  Very Happy)

It got me thinking how lucky we are these days compared to even just 15-20 years ago, what else if it disappeared now would cause you as much grief as me and my wifi?

I'm surprised that ypu didn't knock on one of your neighbours door (not the alcoholic bum) to ask for their wifi password.

Well you have come to the right place as I am an expert in this addiction as having the same issue as well Very Happy

My personal DAB radio is my constant companion at work. I don't know what I'd do without my daily fix of TalkSport and 5Live.
It's against work regulations to use one,but I ignore most rules.
We're also banned from wearing any kind of football insignia. Another rule I happily ignore.

Remote control. I can remember having to leave my chair to change channels. Imagine it.

I don't think I would bother having a TV if they stopped making remotes for them now Very Happy

It was terrible for perusing the lingerie section when they shrunk the size of the catalogue down. I had to squint at the pics!

Social media, people used to have to talk to each other, and how I'd get through the day without knowing that someone I used to work with years ago has just had lunch at Nando's I'll never know.

Mayfair was a more upmarket periodical.

I was more brazen, "can you pass me a couple of twat mags please" used to do the trick.
I did a YTS at W H Smiths and was surprised how many they used to sell.

I once nicked a copy of Mayfair from Smiths and stuck it up the back of my jumper, wedged into my waistband.

All was well on the 501 home until I started to walk down the stairs from the top deck, only for the damn thing to fall out because it had got pushed up when I was sitting down and it cartwheeled down the steps and flopped open on the floor.

Right in front of Mrs Forshaw who was in her 60's and our next door neighbour.

I could have died of shame, right there and then.

That reminds me of a funny incident on a lads trip to Belgium and Holland from the local pub where one of the lads had bought some porn videos (yes it was that long ago)
The coach we were on got stopped at customs and the lad that bought them was panicking so he opened the skylight and put them on the roof of the coach, but as he did the coach got waved through and the videos slid off just missing the customs officers.
We got stopped again the customs officers came and did a full sweep upstairs and confiscated a porn collection that would have done a sex shop proud.
