So hard that when I bit a piece a tooth with crown snapped off.

Wrong sort of chip. Always read the fine print.

That just sounds wrong on many levels.

Hope the tooth can be saved.... we need them all.

Bloody grots. I hope they all got sunburn, food poisoning and wasp stings on their arses.

It was a restaurant via skip the dishes. It took me 14 years to find good fish and chips here (Cod too) and after saying fab things about it they do this to me.

There's probably enough tooth left for a post and new crown but I already have a partial denture next to it so it may be best to either add a new 'tooth' to the partial or have a new partial.
No doubt the dentist will say a tooth can't be added for xyz reason.

We rehomed a gorgeous cat on Saturday to (apparently) a lovely lady who has fostered for us in the past. Today she brought him back because he's clawing her looped carpet and wanting to sleep by her head. I made various suggestions of things she could try but it was all too hard. I suggested creating a bedroom for him in the laundry but she was horrified and said she wanted him to sleep on her bed. Just not by her head. She wasn't prepared to put the effort in for more than 30 freaking hours! We'll find a great home for him but he doesn't deserve to be treated like this. She's an arsehole.

We had a lovely cat who not only shared our bed (along often with the children and the dog!) but used to use her paw to raise my eyelids in the morning!

(I had a skill of sleeping in six inches of bed!)

He's a lovely cat. Anyone should be proud to have him sleep on their head.

I like his little spot on his chin. Nice looking cat, and who doesn't want a friendly cat who will sleep next to them, hope he finds a home soon.
