Went to the builders merchants this morning. Used the hand wash dispenser(because of the rules). Walked in, and was given dirty looks by those that were there, all 4 of them, then I realised I wasn't wearing my face nappie. To solve this, I went and bought an industrial facemask, with activated charcoal cartridges. I pulled it out that packet and put it on, carried on shopping for some bath sealer and a few other bits. All essential of course. :rolleyes::whistle:
Walking back to the checkout/till, someone said ......'Here comes Darth Vader' .......So I grabbed a broom handle to let them 'feel the force'.
Those few that were there, and myself, had rather a laugh.(y):D

The upshot is, the industrial mask works out cheaper the those boxes of face nappies. Should have though about that 2 years ago.

Darth Steve.:)

About two weeks ago, I realised, when making a Baked Spanish Omelette I didn't have a pepper. Jacket on, face mask on got to the shop and realised I didn't have my wallet. To sooth my frustration, I had a drop of Penderyn Whisky (It's made in Wales) and made the trip again. Is this old age?
Nah not old age :LOL:

I've had a few wally moments over the years, but I think my mate's was one of the funnier ones.
We had walked into what is known elsewhere as Burger King after a few quiet ones at the local. My mate walked up to the counter and asked for a Big Mac. The girl replied with an absolutely straight face, "Sorry sir, this is Burger King".

Oops wrong shop :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I remember years ago i had taped a movie of the telly for the kids, a few weeks later we watched it. I then went into Woolworths and asked at the deli for some of those cheerios that were advertised on a special, she wanted to argue with me, saying they are not on special this week, this went back and forths until i suddenly woke up that i seen the ad on the movie i had taped weeks earlier. She was right and i was wrong, she had a sense of humor tho :ROFLMAO:

Don't understand why they make it so hard to us older ones to set them up. I really want to change the ring sound on mine but not game to touch it to try and do it and i know what my kids will say if i ring them again over the phone :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Its a big joke now, mum doesnt have "ring a friend" [like the games shows] she has "ring a kid" :LOL:

It was only today, after almost 3 years of owning a 'smart phone', that I added a pin number to access voice mail. I have hardly ever used the phone in a traditional sense with my actual phone number.
I kept getting voice mails for the last 2 weeks from the same single number, that I never recognized. So that's why today I sorted the pin, just to find out who it was from.

Guess what, the voicemail was from my provider telling me how much credit I have left on my phone. BUT, I have an App from the same provider, so I know what credit I have left. :rolleyes:
I use WhatsApp for all my messages and phone and video calls, that means I haven't needed a top up for 23 months.(y):LOL:

I have to be a real wally. It has been said, mainly because most of modern technology passed me by during my years as a carer, I AM NOT SMART ENOUGH FOR A SMART PHONE, and these are my friends? I hardly use the cheap 'non-smart' mobile and £20 can last me about a year. Strangely though, I don't feel in any way deprived?

I'm a lot smarter than my Smart Phone, coz I can turn it on and off. I can recharge it also. For those reasons, and many more, that's why my Smart Phone, really isn't that smart.

Mind you, when I pick up the TV remote, thinking it's my house phone.....that isn't so smart, is it..:rolleyes::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Move over Gibbo,
just did another age related wally:confused:
I just ordered a pdf copy of a birth cert and as a final it gives the details of the transaction - so being a bit lazy I just take a screen shot and save the image(save typing)
When I tried to save the picture I kept clicking on the save icon and couldn't see why it wouldn't save :mad: Suddenly the penny dropped - I was clicking on the screen image:eek: no wonder it did'nt save -- Felt a right wally!
