    "Oh my shit!"

    Are the 1st words that describe the beginning of my 10 days off work.......

    Went to the ink fairy earlier today to contiunue my paper mario masterpiece and about 3/4 of the way through I get a phonecall on my mobile from a friend asking me if I was ok, A bit odd I thought only to find out that there have been reports of suspectected terror reports minutes earlier! I must admit I was a bit shocked to think a small westcountry city like Exeter would be the target of a terrorist bombing but how wrong was I!

    I got my ink finished and carried on uptown a bit wearily, thought to myself hmm, im a bit hungry and walked past my usual workplace to grab a bacon roll from my local deli/cafe Giraffe.

    I was about 2nd in the queue (a great british past-time) and I felt the earth move and a horrendous bang!! Shit flew everywhere and people started screaming, It was only after about 20 mins when I got a phone call from a fellow security officer that I realised exactly what had happened and seriously doubted that us as humans are really all that we a cracked up to be!

    What kind of fucking retard would willingily prepare a bomb in a family cafe than an animal rights activist! Sadly one innocent member of staff was injured apart from the twat holding the device!

    Im just so damn glad I told my partner not to meet me in town today with my 7 month old daughter......

    Im also glad noone innocent was killed (shame the bomber didnt die), After the london bombings I thought I would be safe, Im so glad I had counter terrorist training at the end of last year. Made me think about things and mentally prepare for things in a whole different way!!

    The Devon & Cornwall Constabulary were spot on as were the bomb disposal guys from Plymouth! A big thanks to all involved who meticulously brought an entire busy shopping city to a safe and organised stand-still!!

    I'm glad (almost) everyone is fine. Hopefully the injuries are not very serious.
    Let's turn all this negativity into positive vibes by you showing us the awesome ink work! [​IMG]

    That's scary... I think I'd need about 5 pints too, to calm my nerves. You are lucky nothing bad happened to you. I am glad you are okay though. [​IMG]

    Ugh glad you are alright. My cousin was caught up in the London bombings - luckily she was alright. The funny thing - on the same day I was in Edinburgh when there was a bomb alert on the bus on the same street where I was. It was very surreal and scary.
