Re: Fragile

Yep, the word ni=p was used a lot in wartime, a derogatory reference to Japanese military. Dad used the word a lot after his term in the Korean War mostly based in North Japan. Another favourite of his was Septic Tanks (for Yanks). People get offended I guess. Most my guudelines 'red lighting' occurs with typos, gadp!! I'm sometimes shocks what I've typed, and hope a 'real' person didn't see it, for fear its seen as deliberate use :z lol

Re: Fragile

Thx @Fancy_Pants lol

Hi @Shaz51

@Former-Member  I have never heard that Yank one.  I am gonna use it one day (with feeling) (off the forum).  I was so NOT racist and I had to swallow so much Bull.

Fires are coming close to where my son did a lot of local busking.

Sitting in an overly air conditioned office for one hour nearly put my neck out, at any rate severly stressed it. The vent was in fron of me so it was not due to air stream directly on my neck, but the level of refrigeration of temp which the staff could not control.

Both the female workers suffered coughs and colds due to it.  They were nice and opened a door, but that was not the answer either.

Why do work places act so dumb ... so now when asked about barriers to employment, I am going to have to say over air conditioned buildings .... better safe than sorry with my neck.  And companies write it off as a tax expense ... when they should change the settings.
