British Problems

Leaving a B&Q warehouse in the pouring rain. At what point can you claim "Every man for himself", run for the car and abandon your partner?* For this is exactly what happened recently outside Farnborough's number one DIY superstore, and I'm afraid I let the side down badly.

In a further act of "I'm alright, Jack" I was able to cover my head with a newly-purchased wooden shelf, while Jane had nothing to prevent her from a full-on soaking. I'm the worst person in the world.

Even Hitler would have given Eva Braun his hat AND taken the trolley back. But then, Hitler would have also parked in the special 'Dictators Only' space right by the door.

* I'm told that the correct answer is "When the AA man asks if you want to join"

In letting others take a soaking, you were actually taking part in DIY....doing it yourself !

By giving it a soaking, you've shortened the shelf life of your shelf.
