Oh maybe that was it.

They probably went back inside and carried on eating & drinking themselves into bad health.

Booing at people not clapping is really pathetic, if that is why.

Perhaps some people were booing at the clappers?

Samtsirch Thu 30-Apr-20 21:51:13

Whichever way round, it sounds like a right pantomime to me.
🤣

The happy clappers on my road must be clapped out as they were thankfully silent tonight. Last week they were clapping and banging pots and pans, and the week before that they were clapping and sounding their car horn. Not what I need at 8pm when I've just got ds to settle down in bed. Pisses me right off. I'm a qualified nurse but not working at present and I find the whole thing patronising and embarrassing. Show your appreciation by sticking to the rules, not by clapping and banging and beeping and being a hypocritical twat.

Were they saying "boo"? Or were they saying "boo-urns"?

Simpsons fan here- just thought I'd lower the tone...as you were!

Booing at the clappers for clapping, booing at non clappers for non clapping, clapping the clappers, clapping the booers... the world has gone mad grin

It was raining here so no one bothered anyway

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 03-May-20 15:32:48

We’ve all got covered doorways, mines brick wall on 3 sides so I could clap through a storm.

If I wanted too.

Oh no it doesn't

People round here have seemingly been having clapping parties on thursdays, large groups of people clapping and dancing together in the street hmm Because I am sure NHS staff really appreciate social distancing being ignored for a party to clap into thin air.

I get wanting to show support but after all this is over people will be back to assaulting nurses & missing appts.

Where do you live? “People” don’t generally assault nurses hmm

@derbygerbil talking as a a nurse myself, you'd be surprised. Verbal assaults ie screamed and shouted at, threatened etc is very common and physical assaults aren't as uncommon as you'd think...

@Derbygerbil

Well verbal abuse was pretty common in my day sat night in Aand E
I also worked with a nurse who, as she leaned over a trolley to speak to a man, he pulled her down and bit the end of her nose completely off. She was 19

Tonight they rang our doorbell and ran off which set my dh who has quite bad mh problems off. He’d only relaxed a bit after hearing lockdown was extended because he’s shielding & the Chinese company he works for are desperate to get back to work.

He’s still raging now & I have to live with a very angry dh for the rest of the evening.

I spent £130 today on PPE so I can work next week because I’m a key worker.
