I am shocked at the tone this site has taken whilst i have been away.

I feel i must educate you gentleman on acceptable behaviour.

A gentleman should be able to talk on a variety of subjects, although he should never use vulgarisms in speech. Simplicity and terseness are the characteristics of a highly-cultivated person. A gentleman should also be a good listener, even if the talker is prolific. A gentleman conceals his dislikes and disgusts.

Compliments are encouraged, but only if they are sincere. Flattery should be avoided at all costs. Slang is considered vulgar, and should never be used. Scandal is the least excusable of all conversational vulgarities. Interruption of speech is also a sin against good breeding. To show interest in the concerns of others is very complimentary, and should be practiced in conversation. Finally, a gentleman never mentions private matters in public or mixed assembly.

Now lets all behave on here

Blimey I have opened a can of worms havent I.

Well John me ol fruit, That is not entirely true as you know, Yes you did leave a message on my ansofone and when I had the time I E MAILED YOU BACK AND INFORM YOU THAT THE MACHINE HAD ALREADY BEEN SOLD !!!!! and you replied thanking me for letting you know!!!!!!  

What are u like!!

You are like a little sulking kid, because I sold the equipment to someone else who I might add had first refusal and more importantly , at the time was just starting up and his need was greater than yours.


Now go sulk in the corner

It's a wind up Mr Betts and you've taken the bait.

So Ian was right ! - I also had thought it was your sense of humour but as the evening drew on, I was begining to doubt it.

Can I take it that we return to being a league of gentlemen? We southern softies stress out very easily and I've run out of happy pills  Wink


Posted by MB (Mark Betts), 30 March 2004
Dont think so Mr Flynn,

You have exposed yourself as not telling the whole truth,

Now tell the board what really happened or shall I tell them?

No I will, hahah

You did phone and leave a message of my ansafone but as I was driving at the time it could not be answered, then it slipped my mind as i was WORKING!!!! So at the end of the day I emailed you to say the machine had been sold, correct?

And before you come back with a smartass comment about what if it was a customer , well if it was a customer who has left a message I would have called them straight back, even would have pulled over and answered the phone, but as it was not a local code you were obviuosly not a customer.

And do you not agree you e aailed me back thanking for letting you know?

Anyway, dont know why you keep on at these vindictive posts whether it is your "sense of humour" or not .

And no its not just me who has noticed them 2 people from this board have commented on it way before today.


PS I bet my handbag is bigger than yours   Grin Grin

Hi Guys

As one of the site moderators I am afraid I came in a bit late on this one...all the action is about over it seems.

Unless I am over-ruled I will leave the posts as they are..

I just love a happy ending....sob, sob, gulp Wink Smiley


ps.. the reason I am posting at this ridiculous hour (even for me) is I shall be off to Watford pretty soon.. I hear of a snazzy Little Chef just off junction 5 of the M1


pps...the clock is wrong it is only 4.38am
