Pills & Points!!

Ladbrokes have really got on my hooter this week,i played a fairly huge amount of HU & STT's in december & last month & amassed quite a few 'frequent player points'.
I used a few up on their FPP gtd tourneys & thought i'd try another one the other night;but......little did i know ( or had read & forgotten!) they dont fucking well roll over!! I've obv allways got them but havnt taken much notice of them,now i want them they have fucked off!!! Poker Stars keep your FPP'S for ever.even though my a/c has been run down to nothing, i can still use my points (for sattys etc.) but Laddies snatch them back at the end of the month......tight twats! If you read Joppa's excellent blog http://joppa-road.blogspot.com/ then you see he isnt too keen on them either, we cant be the only 2 complainers & on a site with so little traffic its a bit bad. ( i know they have their 'rake race' & all that nonsense but thats not realy for mini stake fish like me!!!)

Today i went to the docs,i have had pains in my chest for a couple of weeks & it hurts like hell & wasnt getting better.
I knew (hoped!!) it was only a strained muscle but just needed the doc to tell me!! The problems he said were as a result of coughing my guts up when i had killer man flu at xmas & the new year i have torn loads of the little muscles that are in between your ribs.......he still listened to my heart & lungs etc & gave them the all clear...PHEW!! So he just prescibed me some strong painkillers. Off i went to my chemist & handed over my £7.20. Luckily the pharmacist was there & recommended buying the same poxy tablets,but not via script. these cost £1.95. why o why didnt my doctor tell me that & save me a fiver,or is he;
1.on a bung from the drug manufacturer every time he prescribed their gear or
2. just cant be asked & just writes it out coz its easier that way!!!

Personally I reckon he should work for Ladbrokes,they would make a good team!!
Glglglglgl to you all.

I've linked you up mate.

About ladbrokes...they seem to have the same problems as betfair...not much liquidity and yet treat their customers like cvnts

I only play pokerstars now (and ftp sometimes).

The games aren't any harder, there is liquidity, and the customer service is better...

Aint that the truth!!
Stars has a billion fold more players yet every thing about them is better imo,seems weird why Laddies doesnt try to get better to improve their traffic numbers but thats complacency for you i suppose!!
O well,back to Stars/FT for me.!!
Ta for the link mate & glglglgl.

Always good to get the all clear from the docs. I've been worrying myself stupid that i would have to have my toes chopped off due to bad circulation but the doctor reckons I have a good pulse in my foot and I'm just being a twat!

Lol Pud,we all worry too much i suppose,going to the docs only makes it worse.
We all like to think we are big,hard heros but any ache or ailment & we all turn into Dot Cotton!!!
