    I was in hospital, post surgery, and the best, most empathetic nurse was a young man. And before anyone thinks it, no he was not gay.

    Hi Kelper, I was in Preston Royal in july 2018 I had open aortic abdominal surgery (Thank you Dr Graham Riding and your team) The nursing team was a fairly mixed bunch, having my catheter taken out by a young male nurse was daunting for someone of my generation, I said to him while he was doing it I needed to pee he said no it's just a sensation you get next thing I peed all over his hands what did he do laughed his head off the ice was broken, fantastic hospital and a great nursing team whome I will never forget

    Not sure he'd be the best at climbing ladders. You know, because he's Chinese.

    I am surprised the health and safety lot still allow fire-people to climb ladders without fixing them to a wall and wearing a harness as the sky TV guy had to a few years ago when he put the dish on the front of my house.

    Ah, the "health and safety gone mad" post. This thread is like Daily Mail headline bingo.

    Sky...I had that palaver...but he had to go up the ladder to put the anchor in...when I pointed this out his head went to bits and couldn't decide if or how he should do it!
