so where do you play your tournaments biccies and what was the impact of covid?
They pretty much stopped during covid and then came back in the UK with the use of the NHS pass, which meant I boycotted any tournaments for which I hadn't precommitted to a doubles partner.

I've played in France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Bulgaria but the most fun is to be had at the champs in Las Vegas, apparently.

I am excellent at carrom board, I used to play a bit competitively at uni and can still normally beat any challenger.

Also pretty decent at badminton and chess.

How do the Germans stand in the international rankings? They love that game here. Very common to find a table or two in bars

They are v strong because of their large number of serious players. Our best players are on a par with their best, tho, thanks to assiduous practice regimes and, in our top boy's case, extreme talent further developed while young

Germany has its own football team-style team bus

I played Germany/world number one Thomas Haas a couple of months ago in a random partner game and he won 7-6. We were both pissing about tho (I scored a bank shot from midfield, with which I was inordinately pleased)

I’m good at getting people off opiates and benzodiazepines, might be the only real talent. Live the drugs, love the drugs, do the actual detox, know the detox head to tail. Know the glitches. Know your clients and their family/carers/advocates. Remove psychological trauma, apply meds if absolutely necessary, slowly reintegrate back into life. Repeat, except

Find work-style email the most horrific disrupter of this process. How much fluff people pad out fuck all with. It forces skim reading, until you hit a data-set or reference section thrown in as a smokescreen. Instead of attending in person (because = Covid!) or even phoning when a matter is pressing, cunts will email some garbage left half hanging, as in “that’s me covered”. So you have to edit the mess, establish any thread of what may/may not actually be happening and then wrathfully rewrite multiple abortive care-plans

This is where @shiels take on the English is spot on because at any one time you could be dealing with multiple varietals of said subsets, nhs from overseas and in order not to swear when tidying up their mess in person you have to use a tone of voice that’s both uncompromising but understandable. Americans, ironically, can be easier company in this sense but I don’t want to generalise lol
