    Well done that man! Did you actually say "shut up", or "Shat it you slag!" with a cockney accent the miserable old bint is probably used to getting her own way with a bit of what the Americans called passive-aggressive bollocks. Responding with a bit of aggressive-aggressive is clearly the way to go.
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    My pet hate is guys who are married referring to their wives as 'the wife', rather than 'my wife', which just sounds much nicer and more respectful. If I ever referred to Del as 'the wife", she'd rightfully give me a slap!

    I have been addressed as "darling" by female bar staff. I took it in the spirit it was given. A particular hate of mine is being asked by the bar staff "What do you want?", to which I pointedly reply "What I would like .... ".


    Thoroughly agree with the last paragraph Marco - it's always been a pet annoyance of mine.

    Yup, that's the essence of it for me. Perhaps they were coming onto you, though - were they staring at the bulge in your wallet or some other 'package'?

    I always feel sad for those who are (or have been) less fortunate than me in life and love.

    That reminds me of the, by now, familiar anecdote of someone askeing an attractive woman if she fancied a fuck and being declined, would reply "Well, would you mind laying down whilst I have one".
