View Full Version : Have you had an accident....AGGGHH
i was walking thru town today (from the moor, up to fargate) and i got asked several times by people saying "have you had an accident in the last few years.." SHUT UP!!!11 AAGHH
*calm down*...*breathe*... :lol:
seriously mind, if you dont make eye contact with them they should leave you alone, never before have i seen so many marketing people in town before..
but i did see the friendliest big issue seller :D who instead of shouting BIG ISSUE!!! in my face asked me calmly "would you like this months big issue sir?"
oh and an excellent violinist who i gave all my 5p's to ;)
This was my LAST experience with one of those accident peeps. Try it next time
Accident man: "Excuse me madam have you had an accident in the last three years?"
Moon: "no I haven't thank you" attempt to move quickly with pram and small child...no chance
AM: "has your son had an accident?"
Moon: "no" give up stand and listen
AM: "Not fallen over at school or nursery?"
AM: "has your daughter had an accident whilst playing in the park, or your son?"
AM: "What about your husband?"
AM: Sarcastically "So basically you are a really healthy family with no accidents"
Moon: "No, I'm a witch accidents happen to OTHER people!"
Happy hunting. :D
Lol, you should have said to him...
"Didn't you get the text message mate? Because you were sacked last week and your company is bust"
"no but you might have one if you don't get out of my way" :twisted: :evil: :x
I've thought about tripping over one of their promotional stands before now and then try to seek advice from them :wink:
"Have you had an accident recently mate?"
"Are you sure? You're limping a bit"
One woman was stopping (trying to stop...) people on the Moor this afternoon, asking if they were married or not.
what was that all about?
Maybe she fancies them :twisted:
If you answered yes, did she say "You know that you can get half of everything with a devorce?".
It wouldn't suprise me to see these people stoop so low.
How annoying! I know how they feel though! At work i have to ask EVERY customer if they want an account (28.9% APR with no discount) . It usually goes something like:
Me: 'Would you like a...'
Youve got to remember theyre trained to do what they do and theyre doing it to earn money and TRY not to take it out on them. Going out on the streets is a bit desperate though. You could sue the council for tripping up on a stray pebble these days (sadly, probably literally.) Were turning into america. First thing we think when someone we know/we get hurt is 'oooh i wonder how much money i cant get for that.'
First thing I think is 'ow, that hurt' :lol:
I tripped up on a paving slab once, near Castle Square tram stop. My reaction was to get up, say to someone who came to see if I was ok "It was my own falut - I should have been looking where I was going", dust myself down and carry on walking.
It never crossed my mind to sue anyone.
I was asked this very question about a year ago by someone looking for blame and presumably a claim (those bloody adverts!).
Anyway my reply was "Yes, but i'm accident prone and they were all my fault".
He looked at me for a second then just walked off without saying anything!
I'd like to say my reply was rehearsed, but it's true :!:
I had a friend who fell into a hole outside the barracks on West St. He was well tired and emotional but still insisted on suing the council for not putting up enough warnings. He received about £20k in compensation and promptly drank himself to death, literally.
There must be a lesson in there somewhere.
