I wonder what Jimbob will think of us all on TNS talking about him in this way whilst he is not well and sees this thread on his return.





























As the phrase goes "Time will tell"

rosalind,

I unfortunately find the above discussion normal for creatures of the participants mental age, about 3 or 3-1/2.

One of the "people" blathering on is noteworth in his hostility, as illustrated below:



...and making friends,.

That's a first.

I'm also looking forward to his return. I've been practising in readiness...



Viewed from a psychological standpoint, rosalind, this creature - and the other participants - are actually venting their hidden frustrations with, and anger about, themselves on a third party totally innocent of any cruelty or venality against the originating party. This is termed "transference" in the psychological literature. Since this is not in a clinical setting, it is focused on the most intelligent person with the highest leadership profile within the sphere of acquaintance of the psychological impaired posters referred to above. I is a tragedy unfolding before your eyes.

So, get your lazy arse in gear, you foul miscreants (especially you, Beaver) your worse nightmare is back. Prepare for the least pleasant - a metaphorical kidney stone attack, or suffering several days on the rack of my wit and derision, etc., etc..

Jim
I feel i must correct your poor English, you should have used the work 'am', as in; "I am a tragedy unfolding before your eyes"

Glad to hear you are on the mend, break a leg...erm, shoulder.. [^]

I'm sorry, I shoulder the blame for these outbursts of cruelty. You are so right, I am inadequate and bow down to your superior intellect.

MY BUM!

Bring it on my son.

Who made you guardian of the English language? I thought the guardian was some dried up curmudgeon at Oxford or Cambridge who turned into A werewolf each time there was misuse of the mother tongue.

Besides, your imagination was unable to harness the intended meaning, showing the doltish cast to your thinking. It should read "It is a tragedy unfolding before your eyes."

Lame, Paul, LAME!

QAWD, YOU'RE ANCIENT!

I am 63. 63 + 20 = 83 - if someone actually had married you that young. You more than likely had to wait until someone older and very desperate came along and you probably just made it under the biological deadline, mom.

(That last word leaves a bad taste in my mouth.)

That looks like a nasty case of redneck inbreeding.

Sorry Jim, you were a phantom pregnancy. The phrase "my son" actually comes from people watching football. They look at the players as members of their own footballing family and will often shout "come on my son."
I was just thinking of you as part of my forum family with no maternal connections. I hope you are not too hurt to find that I am not your real mother.

From her answer to my posts it seems that the experience was not what I believed it to be. She's just a little mixed up and needs a long rest in a very close-fitting jacket.

You're just always late

It is shameful, I know. And repeated visits to the pharmacists for morning after pills does get embarrassing.
