Who else knew a celeb before they were famous? Celebmaker, Watford BOUNCED (Txts, Thur): bouncer knockbacks. How about, youve blatantly put socks over your trainers, nice try mate! FT, Maidstone BOUNCED: told I was not funky enough! I was meeting my girlfriend who worked there, so not funky and in the doghouse. Pete, Warwick NEvEr Mind The Buzzcocks Phill Jupitus is a dead ringer for Hagrid from Harry Potter! M, Essex HaS anyone pretended to be pregnant to get a seat on the Tube? Saw a lady do it last night. Clever or immoral? Jo, London TD (Txts, Thur): I work for a US company and everything is either lets circle back on that or so and so will reach out to you. What happened to good ol talking! Nikkii, London TO BE fair TD (Txts, Thur), I dont hear that phrase very often. Having said that, I am tired of people using the phrase having said that 10 times in the same conversation. Jose, SW7 I LOvE the post strike, when I get home from work there are no bills to open. Got to look at the positive. Tremain, Norfolk STrETCH (Txts, Thur): but my hand always gets left BEHIND on the escalator at angel! Perhaps there is no answer. Hannah, would like hand in front, N1 STrETCH: escalator handrail powered by friction via adjustable rubber wheel. When wheel is not adjusted right the handrail moves at different speed to escalator. Escalator engineer, SS8 GarETH (Txts, Thur): get your sandwich board on and stand at London Bridge in the morning. youll soon find out! Id date you for your courage! Interested, DA16 PLEaSE can someone tell me if the little boy who got on the fast train by mistake and missed London Bridge got home okay? SA, Kent GEOff (Txts, Thur): you wanting to cattle prod Graham for wanting to cattle prod tourists makes me want to cattle prod you. Sam, London Bf (Txts, Thurs): your new husband isnt forgetting everything. Its called selective hearing. Less nagging and he may remember! Pauline, E8 Bf: I am five years married and he STILL doesnt listen, my teeth are gritted right now... B from Harp DOM (Txts, Thurs): I used to imagine that I was a Jedi as I crossed victoria concourse. Try that. Mikey, RM14 Is postal strike suicidal for the Royal Mail? I PROBABLY wouldnt watch anything on ITV if they werent on it. They make the job look easy and come across as fun and lively. Im sure their bosses think theyre value for money. Nicky, London ITS interesting to see which qualities ITV values. It will pay these two lads 20m but has scrapped local news and current affairs documentaries. Graham, Kensington CANT stand them. Their childish giggling wore thin a long time ago. I wouldnt watch them if they paid me. Clara, London PIErS MOrGaNS show is not entertainment. Katherine Jenkinss admission she was almost raped comes close to Jordan breaking down on his show. Showbiz is supposed to be about escapism not plumbing depression. Elena, Crouch End I WENT to see Dizzee rascal at the Electric Proms (Lite, Wed) and it was the best gig Ive seen all year -- 10 times better than the Jay-Z gig in September. Miles, London Another thing Shouldtherebemorearmedcops?Areallfilmstarsgoodonstage? AreAntandDecworth10meach?

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite T he strikers are shooting them- selves in both feet. UPS, DHL, TNT all offer a superior service. You dont often see their deliv- ery guys sitting in their vans fast asleep. Its a shame the strikers dont realise it is just a matter of time before they are out of work, but the CWU leaders will still be employed. Don, south London CANT they just sack the lot and take away their pensions? There are plenty of people including Poles etc. keen to do the work. The quality of the Royal Mail is so lousy I have zero sympathy. Thomas, London THE Royal Mail now offers an appalling service. Householders have gone from two daily deliveries to one, which could arrive any time between 10am and 2pm. Thats assuming it doesnt go missing in the meantime. It deserves to die a painful death. Auf Deutsch, Kent THESE lemming strikes are a disaster for Royal Mail but also for Joe Public. Privatisation would mean the end of doorstep deliveries and you can forget the 30p stamp. More like 3. Joe, Streatham THE Royal Mail should be able to hire new workers to replace the striking postmen. It is trying to run a business in a competitive industry and it is not being helped by restrictive legislation. Nick, north London THE mail service is still vital for the 40 per cent of the population, many elderly, that dont have the internet. Some give and take by both sides is needed. J Jones, Westminster THE selfish British public strike again. These people are fighting for their livelihoods but as soon as one letter is late we hear calls to sack them. I despair.
