JackBunion Report 7 Jan 2013 15:58

Plus it is a repeat of a thread of a few weeks ago :-( :-(

I was that male driver behind her.
I didn't have the heart to tell her that she had tucked her skirt into her knickers too.

Why do women find it easier to park a car than men, because we know > < isn't 6 inches. :-)


JackBunion Report 7 Jan 2013 19:17

Razza, Wasn't being nasty or nice. Someone else would have noticed it was a recent thread. Why did you not nudge previous one as usual?? Excerpt from previous thread below:

Not saying not very funny. Just saying delete this and "nnn" previous.

Think some of previous posts were quite funny too on this thread :-) I can remember it because it gave me a chuckle.


AnnCardiff Report 7 Jan 2013 20:14

don't you dare delete it Razza - leave it where it is :-D :-D ;-)


JackBunion Report 7 Jan 2013 20:17

AnnC If I had posted OP, would you have said the same?

Razza. Think you wil now have a long thread ;-)


AnnCardiff Report 7 Jan 2013 20:19

I endeavour not to look at your postings


eRRolSheep Report 7 Jan 2013 20:20

Sheesh John - if you find it amusing then just let it be!
I think it is hilarious because it is mainly us blokes who like to think we get it right even when we don't - you may check the mirror whilst waiting at the ATM but we check the tyres, oil, water and pretend we know what we are doing and then break down half a mile down the road and call the AA after persuading the wife to sit in the driving seat so they don't think it is us who know nothing about cars
