So sorry to hear that, Dave, although I am afraid that I cannot accept that I was at fault as I did not ask or advise you to type any reply.

As I am not insured for this, I am afraid you will have to sue me, although please be advised that my personal assets total £4.58, a plate bearing the legend 'A present from Bognor Regis' and half a packet of Mint Imperials.

Please address all correspondence to my solicitors:

Messers Sue, Grabbit & Fleece
Silly Street
Madtown
Berks.

My solicitor disagrees. By typing the original post, you were inviting replies.

Prepare for total insolvency.

And why, when I put my cursor over your green blobs, does it say 'Louise knows what he's talking about'. It's very strange posting as a women when you're really a man. (and vice versa)

I guess our solicitors will have to slug it out in court, then.

I still feel that it is not unreasonable of me to expect you to take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of you and your fingers. Please forward any documentation which may be regarded as evidence that you did so. Examples of acceptable documentation: copies of any RSA Typing certificates you hold; receipts for 'Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing' software; receipts for gel-filled wrist supports.

Regarding the green blobs, in these liberal days when men dress as women, women dress as men and some even go so far as having surgery to change sex, it is only to be expected that gender pronouns have become confused.

It's not clear who the "he" refers to. Perhaps it means that Louise knows what Richard is talking about. Someone must, surely!

aha, louise you are the first person I have seen on this forum with 3 green blobs! well done! not even the mighty JK has 3 blobs (although I'm sure he could have as many as he wanted...backing away while bowing with arms out stretched as I say this). I was beginning to wonder if it was possible to get 3 blobs! how many points do you need to reach such high status?

I need to find some money to buy a new RIB, maybe if I poke myself in the eye with this blunt pencil I can then sue staedtler for not sticking a safety cap on the end. An eye must be worth at least as much as a new RIB!

I hope you manage to sort it all out and get underway with the treasure hunt! Best of luck.

Tim

EDIT: JK does have 3 blobs...I'm sure he didn't have those a minute ago...I feel there is a conspiracy here.

Oh my word, there are 3 blobs popping up all over the place now! Am I blind or stupid? Or both perhaps?

Long hours at work are driving me nuts.

Cheers, Tim! But, before you sue me, I must insist that you do not continue to post on this thread as you may accidentally hurt yourself and, as you have read above, I am already being sued! NO! Don't scroll up! You might hurt yourself!

I have no idea how you get 3 green blobs - I think JK or the software determine this. I just like joining in the chat and giving a bit of help on the rare occasion I might know the answer! Oh, and I like a bit of banter too!!

We think we have got the solution now, regarding the Treasure Hunt. Watch this space!

Even if this trip is to change to a casual cruise I found this thread helpful for exploring aspects of safety in more formal events. As the trip was to target children the safety discussion was even more vital.


There have been incidents during recent more formal events. By and large they were reported and by and large people were sympathetic, seeking to understand, query crew actions and equipment functions in a responsible way or even offering to support. A very tiny minority chose to attack, incredible as it may seem!!!!!! All the more incredible when you see a fellow boater has suffered harm in one way or another!!!



There are unfortunately people like that out there who see their chance to ‘stick the boot in’ (I quote) and therein lies the danger. Those are perhaps exactly the callous types who may think nothing of litigation should something go wrong. And stuff happens to all of us.
