This evening I was sitting close to the TV and whispering sweet nothings into the screen such as "I love your 42" size" and "your vertical hold is fantastic, I can't wait to try your horizontal hold"

I then started to gently caress the screen, whilst blowing lightly on the speakers.

I don't know how long my wife had been in the room but she suddenly yelled out "PERVERT!!" and stormed out.

Honestly, I was totally bemused.

After all, she was the one who had asked me to turn the telly on! ;-)

Allan Report 3 Dec 2012 21:06

lol George I never noticed what was on the screen. It was the off-screen action that I was after ;-)


George Report 3 Dec 2012 21:08

BrianW Report 3 Dec 2012 21:08

Shame the technique has never worked for me on a telly or women !


LollyWithSprinklez Report 3 Dec 2012 21:13

You must be a nightmare to live with Allan

She deserves a medal :-D :-D :-D


Allan Report 3 Dec 2012 21:21

I'm all sweetness and light, least until my evil twin takes over :-D


Allan Report 3 Dec 2012 21:23

Why has Ann's post been rr'd?: I certainly never took offense at it :-|


LollyWithSprinklez Report 3 Dec 2012 21:29

Ours is not to reason why :-( :-S


JustJohn Report 3 Dec 2012 23:28

Allan Is yours nice and slim

Mine is quite small and has quite a lot sticking out at the back ;-)


Allan Report 3 Dec 2012 23:30

We've gone digital John so it's nice and slim


JustJohn Report 3 Dec 2012 23:34

If mine was any bigger, I wouldnt be able to get my arms round and fiddle with the buttons round the back :-( :-(


AnnCardiff Report 3 Dec 2012 23:36

who reported me - it was said in jest!!! ah well, to each his own - I'll probably get the old gypsy's warning now :-S


JustJohn Report 3 Dec 2012 23:42

AnnC :-( :-(

I never saw what you wrote, but I was amazed and shocked. I know it would have been nothing to cause any offence.

Frightened to post anything at moment. What a shame Genes don't look at these reports more closely.

Now to check I have put commas in correct place. :-( :-(


Allan Report 3 Dec 2012 23:49

As I said Ann, I certainly wasn't offended.


AnnCardiff Report 4 Dec 2012 10:25

thanks folk - I have had the warning from GR :-)

No way would I have said anything which I thought would have offended Allan - I know we understand each other very well


JustJohn Report 4 Dec 2012 10:32

AnnC Probably most of us were far more offended by the rr than by you.

I got warned yesterday and they print out the words they are warning you for. I have appealed and asked for a personal reply. Shame there in no explanation from person reporting (even ananymously). And no real right of appeal on these boards when somebody is reporting incorrectly (in my opinion). :-(
