Hi Chris

 

Im so sorry for you that no-one turned up, that must have been so disappointing after all the effort you put into it.

 

I am from Liverpool so didnt feel I warranted coming to your meet. If you make one a bit closer to us maybe in between the two cities, I will come along, as long as the date is free in our diary.

 

Hope the ones who said they were going come back on here and tell you why they never turned up.

 

 

Debbie

We did show interest but unfortunately the date wasn't suitable as we had already made plans so we never confirmed that we were attending. Sorry you had a wasted trip.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Hi all

Nice to see that people from oldham are coming over, have been in Brissy 2 years and have not yet met anyone from the good old town. Drop me a line when you get here and we can meet up. I am a nurse and my hubby is a boilermaker. We have plenty of contact and info if anyone needs it. Good luck all

Love Wendy

I left Oldham in 1990 - I'd met my then boyfriend (now hubby) in '88 and he was from Preston so moved there. Lived there until coming here to Oz in Jan 07. Have great memories of growing up there.... but even returning whilst I only lived 50 miles away it had changed so much. My dad still lives there. I worked at Oldham and District Gen Hospital (now the Royal Oldham)

I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

I find that quite offensive actually!

 

You dont know the circumstances around why people didnt go, mine included.

 

so dont judge me please :no:

With a remark like that how did you not expect to offend? Yes, it was bad manners for people not to show up rather than cancel. However, as Gothic Queen pointed out, you do not know everyone's circumstances as to why they didn't show up and didn't cancel either. For example, car broke down on way, news of a bereavement on way, accident on way.

 

So rather than proceed with potentially offensive remarks, please think before you post that way you are less likely to offend. Thank you.

That is where the apology came in, I hadnt been on PIO that day, had I been on before the meeting and seen a post I would have realised and gone.

 

Please think before you type comments like that about people you dont know

Now now children,...................play nice or i'll take your sweets off you.

 

Look it isnt the end of the world, we got stuck in a pub for a couple of hours and had to test the beer.........................repeatedly................hic

 

If some one else wants a go at a manchester meeting, crack on and count us in. Just tell us where and when.

 

We were a bit dissapointed but it is common for public chat forums like this to arrange something and members agree, untill they realise they have to get of there sofa and join in. Then it falls flat.

 

 

 

 

 

Not sure about that beer, going to have another test

 

 

Hugs to everyone
