Yes don't get a kitchen from B&Q.

Ordered some doors from them once that never came as well, don't think their delivery service is that good.

And their nails and screws are a right rip-off.

Going to be a few people complaining about the discount now being garden stuff only as well.

I don't need to shop at B&Q, Ray - but thanks for the tip.

I don't do up properties.


I know, it requires many hours being logged off and not on forums

So you do up properties in order to stay off forums? Seems a bit drastic.

I did call head office telling every fucker I spoke to that it was a personal matter and I got through to the big cheese at the time to express my disgust and he put his PA on the case and it was sorted thereafter by a really lovely lady in the local store

Their staff must relish being able to ask customers questions like this with a straight face >
"Do you want decking"
"Are you after a tallboy"

Good find! :thumbsup:
Personally i've often giggled at the term "drill bits"
How is 'bits' an authentic name/description for DIY tools?
....... it's what you say when you CAN'T think of a name in the first place. :pmsl:

Originally Reveille was given free reign of the campus. However, since 1960, she has been cared for by a Mascot Corporal, a sophomore cadet in Company E-2. The Mascot Corporal is chosen within his unit each spring, and Reveille lives with him for that year: she goes to class with him, out on dates, and goes home with him for the holidays. He, in turn, escorts her to all of her functions and Aggie engagements.

Miss Rev, as she is affectionately known on campus, is the highest-ranking member in the Corps of Cadets and wears five silver diamonds (the Corps Commander only has four). That means if Miss Rev falls asleep in a cadet’s bed, the cadet must find somewhere else to sleep since she outranks him. Tradition also dictates that if Reveille is in class and barks, the professor should end class because Miss Rev is bored.

That's lovely, I like things like that.

Mine is very boring, it's my lovely Westie sunning herself in the park a couple of weeks ago.
