Why won't people pay?.
« on: Jan 09, 2021, 11:00:15 PM »
People have been wanting a man to go for about 3 years now. He has agreed to go as long as his removal costs are paid. People have said they would pay their share when he has gone. He wants the money in advance.
To bring the problem to an end I have agreed to pay my share. I am just amazed nobody else will pay up.

For gawd's sake Brian this thread will just become another boring 'word associative' exercise knocking other posts down the table!

cretinous  :)

Exactly ! The  "Why are people moaning " post from Brian turned into just that - another word game, so now we have 4 on the go !  all the same and as Cass says, knocking interesting posts down the page.

So report it and ask for either a title change or for it to be deleted entirely. While you are at it ask for this thread to be binned too.


I would myself but I have a bone in my leg.

They could be moved to the proper section, they doesn't belong in G.D. IMO.

I think we all have to share the blame so as tempting as it is to make Brian's posts veer off to the cost of shopping or word association, maybe we should all not do it & leave his threads with no reply.

Yes it seems some do believe he's real and indeed pass comment upon him and his various 'wind ups' and Bumper Fun Book repeats. He must rock his socks off reading them ;)

I'd have no objection at all to Brian's posts, IF, they were in the right place. But this turning them into "Word Association Threads" in  "General Chat" is silly IMO and I refuse to add to them.
Maybe we could start a new section devoted to them ???  call it "Brian's Blethers" or something like that. After all some of them are really funny.

The way I see the situation is the house is worth about 550,000.00 and the general cost of moving house is about 10%of its value so that is 55,000.00.
People are saying a single man does not need a 550,000.00 house at 67 and  his assets are over 1,100,000.00 because he had a similar house before inheriting that one.
That may be the case but that money is for his enjoyment and not the people who want him to go.
Under the circumstances I will pay my share amounting to 55.00 which is only a tank full of petrol and the other 1,000 people can pay theirs.

There is already a creative fiction section as I've already suggested several times - http://www.pensionersforum.co.uk/index.php/board,26.0.html
I reply to the Brian word association thread quite often - mostly because I don't like others telling me what I should and shouldn't do.
I have tried ignoring them entirely but someone always replies so it makes no odds and I may as well amuse myself too.

Oooh, I've had to add my two penn'orth now. I try not to respond, although like klondike I have asked the moderator for the numerous running club threads to be combined and moved to hobbies, not GD. Brian never notices, he just starts a new one in GD. 


Those of us who've been around a while have heard about this man before.  I think its Brian's not too subtle way of telling us all the houses where he lives, including his, are worth upwards of half a million. 🙄
