    Love it! Sadly I was just too well brought up as a child to try out that strategy.

    Indeed. Having been taught manners and high moral standards from young can often be a burden in today's world

    Haha - yeah, that's tops!

    Luckily however, I rarely need to mingle on busy high streets with the great unwashed.

    Jimi Hendrix as well. I mean he was the best and he was in the 82nd Airborne I think. He was in the army anyway. Hence 'Machine Gun.'

    That's the butler's job... What I originally meant was that, as I don't live in a city or frequent busy town/city centres very often (simply because I can access them if necessary out with of peak usage times), I rarely encounter the risible 'glued to their phones brigade', unless one wanders out into the road in front of me, in which case I make damn sure of running it over, and claim the relevant 500 bonus points!
