Or am I jumping the Gun?

It's always the same chorus, but only the lyrics stay the same. And only those who know the song understand how hard it is not to keep going.

Whenever I approach the finish line I remember I appear to have jumped the gun and the race starts over. But why? It's always different and I can't keep my cool. No matter how fast I go, you can't escape those fears. Just oonce I would like to get off at the right station coming home from work. That way there is no problem and no trouble. So I ask you when? Why do I always seem to jump the gun?

I have no idea, sorry.

But did you also post this thread, by any chance?

Did Gabby get a punctuation book?

LadyThumb Wed 03-Aug-11 17:56:45

Ummmmmmmm, eh?

Because you are so busy gazing at your own navel and wittering on about seagulls and such like ?

It's not Gabby because- and I never thought I'd type this- Gabby makes more sense.

shock tethers

I think it's a tough call actually.

True. PLus at no point did the OP mention radio features, female presenters or the Tory Party. Discuss.

I'm going to go with bored stoner.

AuntieMonica Wed 03-Aug-11 18:23:07

this is like one of weirdy fb status thingys that people post to show off they know related to song lyrics grin

tethersend Wed 03-Aug-11 18:28:04

No, Gabby posts from the black depths of his heart.

This seems more (and I'll take it back if OP turns out to be ill) contrived IYSWIM.

It's not Gabby, but another rather odd poster.
But very surreal and mumsnetty, I love the occasional slightly eccentric poster.
Carry on OP, I'm listening.

In my local bus shelter, the graffiti reads 'without you, all my tomorrows would be the scurf of yesterdays'. I have no idea what that means either but it seems along the same lines , so using my powers of deduction (there's a picture of a spliff next to the graffiti) I still reckon stoner.

In my local bus shelter it says "Bus's R shit".

MissPenteuth Wed 03-Aug-11 18:35:09

<Googles 'scurf'>

<reads again>

<none the wiser>

It is called premature ejaculation, you can get help for it you know...

SuePurblybilt Wed 03-Aug-11 18:42:16

I only know what scurf is from being horsy (white froth) and Jilly Cooper (dandruff). I don't know what West Country teenagers think it means.
One of the buses also has carved/scratched into the back seat 'BOB MARLEY PISSES ON YOURS'. It's DD's favourite bus cos she thinks the picture of a leering cock next to it is a happy worm.

I blame all this hot weather you know...

Mandy2003 Wed 03-Aug-11 18:45:02

I think Gabby must be at the Seaside grin

SarahStratton Wed 03-Aug-11 18:50:32

<laughing at the 'happy worm'>

Is this a prime example of navel gazing at it's worst best?

HedleyLamarr Wed 03-Aug-11 18:52:12

Sue, that is the best description of a cock ever. grin

SuePurblybilt Wed 03-Aug-11 19:13:34

grin. Poor little happy blind worm.

I've told her it makes me travel sick to sit there now.

WalterFlipschicks Wed 03-Aug-11 19:17:51

tethers for some reason I have just nearly sprayed tea on the laptop at Bus's are shit, especially the terrible grammar!

Mandy2003 Wed 03-Aug-11 19:58:44

Just one thing to say Sue and HedleyLamarr -


SuePurblybilt Wed 03-Aug-11 20:32:04

Blee Mandy! You've seen it then. grin
