    Because you’re shit at putting up shelves. What would you have done if she accepted your offer? Ring your dad?”

    Conversely - what brand/make of shorts has the pad in a most arserly direction?

    I've got some endura shorts and 3/4 length tights, fit right and have lasted 15+ years.
    Probably something to do with the designers noticing their arses were around the back.

    Wore my winter cycling tights for the first time yesterday, nice and toasty, mostly well made but the damn waffle/nappy insert really is too small or badly positioned, feels like your arse is hanging out the back. Would have been great without it, not sure it's worth trying to unpick it.
    The merino base layer top has been good, even wore it in the sea a couple of weeks ago, it's genuinely warm when wet much better than polyester. A bit mean on the arm length but would buy another.

    ^^ Good move Luci.

    It was well observed and written, but I think it could only be part of bigger piece pulling out the issues.

    As it was it could have been deeply humiliating to the entirely blameless person stuck in the middle of it, should they ever have read it.

    Still, made me think and if I'm honest feel pretty uncomfortable in my shoes. The underlying issues run pretty deep.

    Annnnd....I'm off to the memes thread to look at pictures of cats for a while.

    Nice one Luci, also read Squirrel ripper while I was there. FFS there's some dark dark freaks loose in the Yellow pages.

    Serious post.

    I never understand why people buy bin bags, or fire place lighters. Try as I may to avoid it. My house is constantly full of carrier bags, and waste paper.

    Serious reply
    Carrier bags leak all down the hall on the way to the front door. (Spare carrier bags go the local primary school to carry art and wet pants home)

    Waste paper e.g. junk mail sometimes either flash burns or smoulders sullenly, either way you have to clean the whole mess out and start again. Fire lighters cost about 5p and always do the job.

    To the thoughtless prick in a ninja balaclava using the pavement to ride down Chancery lane this lunchtime, you don't know how much self control it took not to clout you one as I dodged out your way. WAC.
