DIYERS.

Happy New Year To You All.  Here's  another one of my anecdotes for you. 


    DO IT YOUR SELFERS ( BILLY BODGERS).
This is a creature that thinks it can fix anything.  It is often seen in stores like B and Q and Wickes.  Some people want a new set of golf clubs or a “nice” jumper (don’t forget the aftershave and socks) for Christmas.  Not Mr. DIY.  Oh no!  He (the majority are of the meat and two veg variety) wants a new Black and Decker Workmate and a Matsui cordless drill.  Some people read Mills and Boon romances.  Mr. DIY reads the latest Screw Fix catalogue.  

He eats, sleeps and drinks nuts, bolts, rawl plugs and screws.  His life time ambition is to “do up” (wreck) an old barn or slaughter works in the countryside.  God loves a Trier.  But this creature really is really trying sometimes.  He makes Frank Spencer look like a competent, time served tradesman.  

May I digress just for a sentence or two?  I once knew somebody who told me they worked with a man in a furniture removal company called FRANK SPENCER.  It must have been really reassuring for the owner of the house when they read his name on his badge:
 “Be careful with that priceless vase Mr. Spencer”. 
“Let’s not stand on occasion, call me Frank!” 

I once lived on a jam butty estate near a man we nicknamed:“Billy Bodger”.  He lived in a new town house with a front garden the size of a postage stamp.   Billy would open his shed and take out his ancient, cylinder, push lawnmower.  The blades were set to cut the hairs off a snooker ball.   Billy Bodger would sweat and toil SCALPING his poor front lawn for half an hour.  By the time he finished mowing (ploughing) his minute and immaculate (not) Wimbledon tennis lawn.  It would look across between the battlefields of Passchendaele and the Somme.   His garden actually looked better when he went on holiday for a few weeks. 

He was a jack of all trades and a master of none!”  

Sounds like myself.

I think he invented the Manchester screwdriver: the claw hammer.

There are people who serve apprenticeships and go to college to learn about, bricklaying, carpentry, electrical wiring and plumbing. 
Then of course there are you “bodge it and scarper” (cowboys) and Billy Bodgers of this world.  All one needs is some fuse wire, Sellotape and a Manchester screwdriver (claw hammer).  Their motto is:
“If in doubt, give it a clout”. 

He’s been doing it to the television for years.  They had a power cut last week.  They couldn’t watch any television programmes for two whole days. 

He decided he will have no more.  He marched down to the GAS showrooms and ordered a new Calor gas television!  Well they don’t have mains gas where he lives!

  1. I think most of us who take an interest in practical things will happily sit and read a Screwfix Catalogue, and any other trade catalogue in my experience. In the days before Yellow Pages went on line we would sit and read the Yellow Pages even! Now I see less of these than I used to but will mostly read anything put in front of me. I enjoyed the post Dave. Thanks.

  9. FINALLY FREE FROM HERPES VIRUSI thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had herpes virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how DR ADIGBA cured them from herpes, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 7 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR ADIGBA because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through same situation worry no more and contact DR ADIGBA via dradigba@gmail. com or WhatsApp him via +2348077875210. he is good too to cure all type of disease and virus. 1 HIV cure 2 cancer 3 diabetes 4 hepatitis 5 herpes. You can contact if you are having any problem...

  19. Honestly When I found out I had herpes, I was completely lost because I didn't know what to do and I worried about how the incident would affect my relationship. I couldn't go about it but positive thinking and a healthy approach keeps me going. I tried finding help in all possible area but my efforts were to no avail. But with the help of Dr Lucky , I discussed the issue with him and I was treated so after some times I went back for another test which came out NEGATIVE and I was totally healed. And you can reach out to Dr Lucky on this mail; drluckyherbalcure@gmail.com Or Whats App; +2348154637647 and you will be the next to testify of his great work.

  20. i have been suffering from a deadly disease (Hsv) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lIot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Onokun helped someone in curing his (Hsv) herpes disease, quickly I copied his email which is Dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : Dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com
