Thanks LQ appreciate the kind words. You'd think she'd grow up and have other things to focus in considering she's due to give birth in 2 weeks with her new fella 🤷🏻‍♂️

It'll get there eventually and all that matters is the kids are happy and I'll never give up.
So sorry to hear this Wolfie. Consider reducing stopping maintenance and tell her you wanted to contact her but could not! Stick in there

Our local supermarket, like most others, is offering a dedicated shopping hour to NHS workers each day. A person from a care home went on our local town moaning facebook page to complain that they work in a private care home and were not admitted. No NHS badge, no entry. We then had a further tranche of posts from people in a range of jobs also wanting to go during the same hour because they are important as well. At that rate everyone will be allowed in and the whole point is lost. Not everyone can be classed as critical, stand aside for NHS workers and stop moaning.

Outpatient appointment. Two people including me in waiting area. Clinic due to start at 9.00 and all staff in by then. I was due to be seen at 9.30 and finally got seen at 10.25. Even in these difficult times that seems unacceptable when everyone was there, even if they had a couple of phone consultations in between

This whole thread started because of loads of emails about GDPR. I'm now getting a whole raft of them about Covid-19, from the same people, apparently ignoring GDPR and basically all telling me that their call centres are having problems and to be patient (and then some other "advice" to make it look like they care).

My company have told us that nobody is allowed to cancel any leave they've booked. Then they try and claim it's because it's important we maintain a work life balance. :LOL: What a crock of nonsense, it's because they don't want everyone going on holiday as soon as lockdown is lifted. But in the meantime, if you've booked two weeks off for a trip which is now cancelled, tough luck. You're now sitting at home for two weeks with nothing to do!

They've also said you need to have 50% of your leave 'utilised' by the end of July. I don't know if that means taken or booked, but in over ten years I've never taken 50% of my leave by the end of July - I always end up a fair bit of it around Christmas. Hopefully they just mean booked by then as I'll just book two weeks off for Christmas straight away. They probably don't mean it that way though.. that would be all too easy.

People are selfish

As a key worker I could claim I need that hour but the NHS doing the most important job right now and it's a pain yes but I think it's a Ness pain right now

Can I suggest that you don't under any circumstances do that? It could be seen as a tit for tat in any future court proceedings and subsequently used against you. She seems to be digging a hole for herself, don't give her an escape route.

Good luck with it.

Never have nor never will stop maintenance, isn't fair on the kids to miss out because she's being a twunt. Also won't go tit for tat because when it goes back to court they can see factual evidence supports me

In less than 2 minutes it seems I can buy a hair trimmer from Argos, a shirt from next and some sand and paving blocks from B&Q (so I'll wager hundreds of thousands of other non essential items and hundreds of websites are fully open)

Do these delivery drivers really need to be on the road

If it isn’t food, medical supplies or essential household consumables why not consider not ordering until the lock-down phase has passed (& it stands to reason the more that can stay at home/avoid all contact then the shorter the lockdown phase will be)

Not saying it's fair on the drivers or anything, but I imagine a lot of things being ordered are projects or activities to keep people sane during the lockdown. Not things they would order if there wasn't a lockdown or after the lockdown.

Homie, really? Moaning about the NHS at the current time? Have a little think. Go and make a video, putting in your kitchen, I need some content 👍

He had a "meltdown" on Instagram due to the lockdown while sat at the steps of his 12M mansion. Absolute attention seeking knob end.
Poor little darling, my heart bleeds for him/her/them. So glad he doesn't have to put up with any real life problems like no money coming in to pay bills etc.
