Or stupid things that some people say.

Tonight, on Googlebox: "Well, I won't be having the vaccine, because I don't like needles (or he may have said injections) "

Well of course, some people just love them, don't they? hmm

I'm always so excited when it's flu jab time - the thought of that needle going into my arm.....! grin

EllanVannin Fri 13-Nov-20 21:32:34

I like it best when it buckles and refuses to pierce the skin grin It did that when I had my 'flu jab---and bled down my arm.

Oh EllanVannin you really got lucky!

I have heard friends say ‘ oh I don’t like hospital visiting’ and even ‘I really don’t like attending funerals’ if the rest of us just adore it.

EllanVannin Fri 13-Nov-20 21:36:47

Didn't I just, phoenix ?

EllanVannin Fri 13-Nov-20 21:39:07

And what's more ? It didn't hurt nor ache afterwards.
What did you say, where there's no sense etc. etc. ? grin

“Oh, I don’t do needles!”

Skin like a rhinocerhorse, rhino.

Once upon a time I was on the giving end rather than the receiving. Either way I don't mind.

And another one on Googlebox (slightly off the topic of the OP)

The blonde girl said that the special episode of that Jungle thing was "highlights of the last 19 series".

Erm, no, highlights of the 2019 one!

They should have a dose of B12 pumped in every other month as I do. That hurts!!

Lucca Fri 13-Nov-20 22:45:29

A bit off topic...people who say something blatantly unfunny and then laugh . Someone at work used to do that “ oh well nearly the weekend ..ha ha ha ha ha ha “. Irritated the whatnot out of me.

But it was about the last 19 series. We saw Paul Burrell and that awful Lady C among others as well as the original sets etc!

I think that the Siddiqui brother explained the vaccine well. Can we have him as Prime Minister?

That I can relate to as it's a very stinging injection.

phoenix Sat 14-Nov-20 08:15:55

Oops Jane10 you can tell I've never watched it!

A slow cortisone injection into the wrist was more painful than the carpel tunnel pain it was treating

yggdrasil Sat 14-Nov-20 09:31:37

I have to inject myself in the stomach every day for a month, something to do with blood thinning. It isn't easy, but it doesn't hurt much at all until I poke my finger trying to find the place :-)

LauraNorder Sat 14-Nov-20 09:37:22

At least he won’t become a junkie, small mercies.

Yes please

EllanVannin Sat 14-Nov-20 13:27:25

That's Heparin, Yggdrasil. I've had a couple of those in the past. Didn't notice the first one as I was in AF.

Jane10 Sat 14-Nov-20 13:42:19

I love Gogglebox! I'm not keen on some of the people but I really like most of them.
I was snobbish about 'I'm a Celebrity' initially Phoenix but succumbed once and then was hooked. There's something fascinating about seeing a group of people who usually 'have it all' stripped back to the most basic of survival tools and having to subject themselves to awful trials. Real personalities emerge and unexpected friendships are developed. Of course its highly edited but it's a stylised social study all the same. Plus I've always just loved Ant and Dec. Cheery wee Geordies. What's not to like!

Jaxjacky Sat 14-Nov-20 13:54:24

La la la....recorded! Will watch later as can’t stand strictly come doh dah.

PamelaJ1 Sat 14-Nov-20 13:58:18

I always wonder if all those who don’t do needles would refuse a blood transfusion. Would they be prepared to put up with a needle then?
They are irritating beyond belief.
