if you've had an accident at work which wasn't your fault…

is it just me, or is the recent spate of adverts for 'national accident helpline', or whatever it's called, particularly galling? the latest one features some ludicrously stupid woman claiming expenses after dropping a load of bottles. now, maybe my logic's skewed, but to my mind that's her fault, and she should be the one paying for it. nevertheless, these companies certainly aren't going to go away, especially not now that they've truly extended their appeal by offering the possibility of claims received after communication by text message, for god's sake. therefore, the only potential means by which to amend this situation is to tax the stupid. a stupid tax would ensure a nice safe buffer of money from which can be extracted all the ludicrously high amounts of compensation given to these idiots for pain endured whilst stabbing oneself in the face, therefore leaving the rest of us free to get on with it.

sorry, tv at the moment is making me go all right-wing.

  1. I thought there was a stupid tax…didn't they call it the 'lottery' or something?

  5. "Hi, my names Bonehead, but my friends call me Mr Bone…or Mr Head, it varies….funny chaps they are. Anyway, so yeah, right, mate, I was at work yesterday and because I'm a total and utter nob and thought I was invincible, I used the axe that my company gave me instead of a craft knife, to hack my head off. I'm nearly headless as a result, because they gave me the wrong tools and that, and won compensation for my inability to use my non-existent brain as a golfball when performing my party trick at stag do-s. Are you a total bell end like me? You could win compensation too!

  7. nice to know the university still allows me to log in and exist :)

    National Accident Helpline IS draining and undesirable and more irritating than Cashmere in summer. BUT.

    Those bastards come in a measely third place to

    a) Those adverts where you have the dowdy beige cardiganed-wife talking to the marginally less dowdy neighbour sticking her oar in (invariably called Cathy for some reason) and

    b) The ones where the couples are talking about how they managed to pay off their McDonalds debts whilst sat in sofas that look like they were surgically attached to their bulbous posteriors from birth. You can tell the marketing world is getting wise to the sofa thing, because they've started sitting on antique leatherbound armchairs instead.

    Incidentally, my friend CJ's sister Heidi started up Dial-A-Loan or something 10 years ago and has already retired to Beverly Hills at the grand old age of 34, so someone somewhere is obviously benefitting from this palarver.

    Good luck in Canley.

    My advice is to film the Big Momma with your digital camera whenever you see her. If nothing else it'll re-enforce her paranoia, which is all she's really after anyway.
