Thought "shock" was the face you pull after checking the price of a sandwich at service stations :shock:


Nothing compared to the face you pull after taking a bite out of said sandwich. ;)

Comedy, cake and talking about it has really helped - amazing what a sponge can do :-) they'll be other jobs

Console yourself with the "Best word in a post of the week award". :D




I was shocked to find only recently, that, that is an actual real word!

I picked it up from a mate, he once said when looking at some dumb kids engine in his (corsa i think) that the 'buffle valve, had discombobulated' so ive said that term for years now, but only after watching the remake of the sherlock holmes film with robert downey jr in, did i find it was a h'actual word lol!



Oh and back to the OP, is there no way you could inform the possible employer of whats happened and get a re-scheduled interview, or has the position filled now?

Shock can manifest itself immediately or over the course of a few hours even days. Or you may be concussed. Either way you may want to get yourself checked out again as either could potentially cause you problems!

Boo, well ill keep my fingers crossed for you just in case, btw my mother is a medical secretary, and she said if youre feeling down and out of sorts then you may well have a mild concussion and its definately worth getting into the vets to be looked at, dont mess about when it comes to your head and its contents, once youve scrambled your eggs, there is no way to fix them!

What's been lovely is the follow up call from the Ambulance service - they gave me loads of information and told me to get down A&E if in any doubt.

Is this that "magic sponge" that football managers used to talk about? I had no idea it had jam & cream in the middle and a dusting of icing sugar on top. ;)

The one with jam and cream in the middle, no dusting of icing sugar on the top though (amazing what a bit of sugar, butter and egg can do)
