Here's me thinking they were all lovely guys who love their mothers.

I know someone who is a screw there.

Some bad bastards doesn't really cut it.

I used to know a gangster called Paul Wyatt who spent most of his 20’s and 30’s in prisons. He was a psycho who scared me to death but for some reason he took a shine to me.  When inside he’d take part in prize fights, bare knuckle with no rules.  He’d spend all his time in the gym and take steroids.   
 

He made big money, about quarter of an inch too big and was happy to let his girlfriend take the rap for that when a few grand in fake £50s was found in his freezer.  
 

I’ve said before he once turned up at a mates with a blood stained rug in his boot and asked my mate to put it in his bin. 
 

Always said he’d like to take up chess.

Yes - a few times. I’m a sensitive soul.

 

I’d been interviewed for a promotion at the last company I held down a proper job in. To be honest, I only went for it because I felt I had to show willing. Never expected to get it, the person who did get it was a ‘shoe in’ and by then I was running on fumes anyway.

 

I actually interviewed pretty well but I had some challenging moments off the pitch in between the interview and being told I didn’t get it. 
 

The tears just came from nowhere, hugely embarrassing. Of course, everyone assumed it was because I didn’t get the job. It really wasn’t. 
 

Looking back, it was just one of a number of signals I ignored that should have hit home that I was in trouble. Naturally I let it get a lot worse before it got better. Fully better it never got. 
 

Not crying at my cousins funeral just before this and not crying at my dads funeral not long after this were also signs. 
 

These days I’ll cry at anything. My cousin appeared next to Tony Blair on the Blair v Brown documentary I watched. He was a photographer and was clear as day on the screen. The footage would have been from around 2007, he died suddenly in 2017 aged 53. I cried the tears I should have shed at his funeral.

Not full on crying, but there are two occasions that really got to me where the tears fell.

 

At Anfield when I went to lay flowers for those who died at Hillsborough. I wasn't alone in that, and when I went to lay flowers on the corner of Cherry Lane for little Jamie Bulger. 

I wasn't alone in that either, and a few funerals, but not at my Dads strangely.

 

Some tears of joy too.

Yeah, once as a kid with a few assaults and plenty of criminal damage going both ways. 
 

One more recently as an adult that was much more petty in nature. 
 

I won both times and I won’t hear otherwise.

If this is the same chap, he’s doing another 10 years for drug dealing.

He only has one trade. Although there is a bloke from Cardiff area with the same name. The one I know will be about 50ish and built like a bulldog.  
 

This is his missus. His freezer often had about £10k of coke on it too.

This is a good post. In a world of blokes, arguing about Brexit, COVID and beans, this stands out. Keep going, you’re ok (ish).

I’ve just realised that they didn’t get done for the £20’s or the £50’s. One of my mates bought 3 x £20’s for £10 and immediately spent one in our local.

Yes. Cupid’s in Swinton is eye opening but also inadvertently ended up in one.
