    Went out today, spent about 3 hrs delivering flyers round where I live. Too early to tell if i'll get any calls, but in the course of those 3 hours,

    1) feckin' sandals rubbed the skin off the top of my foot
    2) cut the back of my hand on someones letter box

    and finally

    3) got bitten by a dog.

    FECKS SAKE

    Somebody better flippin call!!

    Bitten by a dog!!! That's not good! Saying that I was dropping leaflets for the wife's hair dressing business and there was a angry little dog in the window barking, I think I could have taken it on, you know just a one on one, but then there was like a pack of them there 5 seconds later, I think they have may over run me..... But that maybe a different story for another day!

    Hope u get the calls!

    There were neighbours talking in the house next to the dog house so I think the dog was listening at the door to them. The very milisecond I pushed my fingers through, the little b'stard bit the tip of my finger. Luckily my fingers were inside the flyer so I was able to pull my finger out but it still hurt!

    Once I got bit by a dog then half a dozen doors down I got bit again! Then another half a dozen doors later there was a sign in the window saying "Beware of the guinea pig" I said to myself " If that gets me I'm definitely giving in for the day!"
