Asking prices for Bristol flats
  • The dam has burst and hungry sellers are gushing forth.
  • They want your stamp saving as well.

link some examples - would be interested to see what's on offer. 

Bristol urgh. all those awful BLM protestors. No thank you.

Pls all stay away, it's awful here you'd hate it 

You really can't help being like this, can you?

*head tilt*

Oddly enough thicky I’ve lost count of the number of messages I’ve had from ppl being rather less complimentary about you. 

Not m7 that just sounds tragic tbh for you and them 

guys, why do you do this? just ignore each other, or even better, make up?

let by gones be...

I don't do anything. I exist and cookie is a twat at me. There are no 'bygones', I don't know him, we have no personal issue that merits him being like this. We've never even met. He's just mad and has massive rage ishoos which he projects at me 

Thicky most of that is utter horseshit, as well you know.

It really isn't unless you actually think I am a different person entirely 

anyway pls project your rage issues elsewhere 

I haven't really thought about it but isn't the Bristol economy a bit vulnerable over the next couple of years?

I has done very well for London outsourcing so far but will that continue once the Covid and Brexit recession properly kicks in for the next couple of years?

I suppose it may go the other way? More businesses may focus on Bristol and the regions as a result of the Covid WFH movement?

 

Shame I binned your Facebook friend request after those rof drinks instead of screen shotting it then, I could email it to you. Obvs my instinctive reaction was nausea. But you were never going to post on rof again were you? What did you have to lose?

"Shame I binned your Facebook friend request after those rof drinks instead of screen shotting it then, I could email it to you. Obvs my instinctive reaction was nausea. But you were never going to post on rof again were you? What did you have to lose?"

What the actual fvck?

I have never been to RoF drinks nor knowingly sent totes a FB friend request so evidently not me

what cru said

also wtf is with the RoF obsession with Bristol? although I shouldn’t complain as it keeps people away from much better places ... 

You sound 12 

we briefly stood in the same room (but you didn't actually speak to me) at drinks and in an attempt to be friendly, I sent a few people FB requests. Most were polite enough to accept. In your case doing so was obvs an error. 

Omg hoolie was friendly to an idiot ten years ago what a loser

I was posting at thicky not you jorrocks, we’ve never met.

Painting yourself as the victim thicky is laughable. You’re one of the most aggressive posters on here, if not picking fights with people then taking offence at posts directed at others, either out of paranoia or pugilism. And you denied the fb request repeatedly, so you’re a fibber as well. 

Oddly enough thicky I’ve lost count of the number of messages I’ve had from ppl being rather less complimentary about you. 

It's sad that you think bitching and ranting about RoF people in real life is a normal and sane thing to do. 

For the unimaginative like me from London and the south east people when looking to move to Bristol. focus entirely on Clifton, Redland, and Cotham.

The prices are very, very expensive, think 250k plus for a run down one bed flat. I doubt outside London, there is a more expensive place to buy, pound for pound.

Hyoo you knew all this though as not long ago you bought a 4000 square foot 4 floor perios, bath stone clad town house on the downs right?

Penny Saver you have literally ranted and raved to me in person about roffers, you utter hypocrite, and what’s more there was a witness. You utter dimbo.

Its also weird that thicky thinks that seeking out someone on FB when you’ve been in the same room and not spoken, without any sort of message or explanation, is in any way a normal or ok thing to do.

Noted, next time I send someone a FB request I'll make sure we've been formally presented or I have a letter of introduction from lady Catherine de burgh or something 

cookster m7, i am a fan, but u really need 2 find some1 to give u a big and sincere hug

Cookie, do you paint your nails before you have a wank so that it looks like a woman is doing it? 

I like Bristol, traffic is awful though and basically no public transport

Anyway ebitda is incorrect about property prices, those areas are spenny but not that spenny altho Im sure if you offered someone 250k for a run down one bed they would accept 

Bristol has quite a few big corpoates based there, so no surprise there are a few good law firms. I have been down there a few times, its nice.

No comment on the Hoolie / Cookie stuff. I've met them both, seem fine. Stop squabbling.

Thuggy how does it feel to have your balls kept in a bedside cabinet?

This thread is great. It's ROF distilled. 

 

The Jozza confusion and the Chambers Kofi Annan impression particular highlights 

Linda, last time I looked about a week or so ago, 1 bed flats in CCR,were north of £250k

That aside as has been pointed out elsewhere, public transport is woeful at best.

"Its also weird that thicky thinks that seeking out someone on FB when you’ve been in the same room and not spoken, without any sort of message or explanation, is in any way a normal or ok thing to do."

That, for a start is absolute bollock - that is pretty much exactly what FB friendiness is about, it's not a proposal, for fvcks sake, and clearly you knew who she was - I would imagine that 75% of FB requests follow exactly that route.  In any event, what ulterior motive do you think she might have had in sending you a friend request, beyond "oh, we are sort of vaguely acquainted, we know some of the same people, we were at the same event the other day but didn't get to speak, so hello!"

Whatever else you may wish to to claim about her, you are on a hiding to absolutely fvck all if you are trying to suggest that sending a friend request to her is a sign of anything whatsoever.

That’s complete bollox cru. There have been numerous threads on here over the years started by women complaining about exactly that sort of behaviour, genders reversed. 

Are you suggesting that she was hitting on you?

And, I don't think I've seen a thread complaining about a friend request (if it's just that) sent after you have actually hung out with someone, even if you didn't get around to chatting.

It might be different if you hadn't actually met, I've certainly found it a bit odd to get friend requests from anyone (male or female) who has never met me, and knows only that I am FB friends with someone they know, and I generally ignore those.

But, anyway, as I said above, what do you suppose might have been her motive in sending you the friend request that would justify your reaction?

hehmax at the idea I was hitting on him that's mad 

Penny Saver you have literally ranted and raved to me in person about roffers, you utter hypocrite, and what’s more there was a witness. You utter dimbo.

Dude, on the three or so occasions we have met I have spent most of the time trying to figure out how to extricate myself from your mad obsessive frothing about how someone else is, in your opinion, too mentally ill to be employed. And trying to discreetly wipe off the spit you'd just sprayed over me. (When I said frothing I was being quite literal.)

Ooh! Just thought of an upside to masks! 

No idea why you call me Penny Saver. I imagine it sounds clever in your own fucked up poorly groomed head. 

I've always thought Bristol was a bit studenty to be a serious place to live as a grown-up no?

Great thread btw. High brow stuff.

You know its a funny old world. Ive wasted far too many idle hours on Rof. No fucker knows who I am. Which is probably good. Quite a bit of lurking and now and again its a good place to rant at the void, test ideas out or tell stories to noone in particular.

This thread is sort of amusing and despairing all at the same time. The petty vitriol. The middle class property chat. The odd and almost familiar personalities. Rof distilled indeed.

Rof is like watching a soap opera - probably a sort of middle class but still slightly miserable Eastenders -  but its a soap opera that you are allowed to step into and take part in. 

Im trying to work out what to make of all this. I think King Eric said it best.

‘As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods, they kill us for their sport. Soon the science will not only be able to slow down the ageing of the cells, soon the science will fix the cells to the state and so we will become eternal

Only accidents, crimes, wars, will still kill us but unfortunately, crimes, wars, will multiply. I love Rof. Thank you.’

  • I sort of agree. 
  • You make an innocent point and all of a sudden receive logical proof that Bristol is a no-go zone. 
  • Actually it’s one of the UK’s richest and most pleasant cities. 
  • But let’s not allow facts to intrude.
