Today, I woke up early so went to Tesco as my son needed some new pajamas and other stuff. I also wanted to see what cheap books they had there.

After I bought my stuff, I had breakfast there but there was a really whingy little boy sitting just across from me with his Mam. The winging escalated into crying, which then became screaming - his Mam was basically ignoring him and reading a magazine.

Me: Hiya, nice day today ... is he okay?
Woman: Morning, yeah - he's always like that.
Me: I've got a Bob The Builder phone in one of my bags, you think he might like to play with it?
Woman: Duno.
Me: Gives the kid the phone, he stops crying straight away.
Woman: Thanks.
Me: No problem, my son is about the same age - when I take him somewhere like this, I usually take a toy with me - shuts him up straight away when he's being a nuisance.
Woman: Was he being a nuisance, then?
Me: Kinda, he is adorable tho'.
Woman: Well, he is now that he's smiling! I'll remember next time to bring a game for him.
Me: (thinks) My work here is done http://img388.imageshack.us/img388/9500/superman4ki.gif

Goddamn liberal parenting, that.

In my days, when crying in a store, or generally being a nuisance, we'd get a slap in the face.

Wtf, do you lot think I am some sort of saint.

When I finished my breakfast, I wrenched the toy out of the annoying kid's hands and left him whimpering.

Before giving it to my own son when I got home, I had to give it a once over with a wet-wipe 'cos the dirty little bugger had gotten tomato sauce over it :dry:

You gave a toy to a peon, then gave it back to manlet.

Are you a mentalist at all.

I was going to mention it but, given Rob's feeble grasp on anything to do with his 'biz', I thought the writer may have been being satirical.

However, aviosion is certainly a word I'll try to slip into a letter to t'revenue in the week. They'll never notice :happy:

Kick your own arse for that sentence.

It's as unelegant as feck.

Re avoision.

Avoidance is legal, evasion is illegal, avoision is somewhere in t'middle.

It's sort of "I'm not paying the tax, what the feck are you going to do about it".

Please to be bearing in mind that it is all very well winning the battle, however the war is a more protracted proposition.
