    Just started a job with Caterpillar after dossing about for 18 months, easiest and best paid (by my standards) job Ive ever done, if Im not careful I'll be there forever...

    My dream job though is this, I invested heavily in some shares when the market went tits up, Im hoping that within 4/5 years I'll have enough money to perhaps buy a disused warehouse over in Brum or maybe even Leicester and renovate it into some sort of music venue and run and manage that, that sounds a bit mental to most people but I cant ever see myself going down the marriage and 2.4 children route f*** that s***....

    I'm no Iron Mike Tyson but after months of a neighbour making noise with his mates throughout the night and numerous polite visits to their house asking if they can keep it down a bit, and then they choose to tell you to F**K OFF and slam the front door closed with you still between the door and the frame..... A knuckle sandwich was the only thing left to offer.

    Well, hopefully it doesn't go down that route for us. It's a bit gutting as we've just moved to the new house, and suddenly they have a house party. The neighbours said it isn't too often to be fair, but they're proper chavvy, so can't wait to get rid of them.

    Oh, and that armrest line cracked me up.

    And Nige...I'm a brave man when stood behind 200 others Forum meet at my house? lol
