Frank a chippy on the large Frinton on sea homelands site. Frank said that we would not be seeing much of him this week as he had a plan to earn a record amount of money . He had the job of fitting front and back doors to about 50 bungalows. he said that he was going to set himself up in a garage and cut and prep all the doors and later in the week he was going to hang the lot . well he had been in the garage for days when all of a sudden we heard a load of shouting and swearing. he went to fit the first door when he discovered that the door frame where imperial size and the doors where metric.he had fecked up about 100 doors, he went home for a week in a temper!
A metre is the exact same as 3 foot three and three quarters?

Circa is used to define a date not an amount so don't put your ex labourer down as a thick bloke you obnoxious c**t.
Correcting syntax and grammar on a plastering forum is a bit of an odd way to try and improve your self esteem? Still, now that you've set the precedent.

Circa is Latin for around or about, and whilst the convention is to use it preceding a date it can be used for anything. Typically with the English language there is a quirk which is the abbreviation for it "c." is only ever used for dates. So @owls was perfectly correct in his use of the word.

Wow calling someone a big swear word, for having known someone and having an opinion on them, and I'm the obnoxious one...
It was a low opinion and you think yourself superior but you will still be top soil same as all of us mate.

Bit of an over reaction, the fellas got issues somewhere down the line,just with me maybe, couldn't care less to be fair. One to put on the ignore list so I don't have to read his bile.

The one and only Sean O'Donnell Bricklayer. RIP.

Wife was ill, sent him shopping, could not be bothered to walk around supermarket to fill up shopping trolley.
Grabbed a fully trolley that someone had left, took it to check out. Job Done.

Sold a horse to some travelers, they asked for papers for the horse, He knew that they could not read, so he when to the van and give then an MOT certificate.

Never had road tax on the van, but used walkers crisp packs, to matched the colour of the current tax disc.

Good boxer, fight kicked off in the pub, bit a blokes ear off. His words, '' if I knocked him out with a punch he be back next week, looking for another go.
He's never coming back, he scared I'll take his other ear off''
