    • A few of them are a bit off the mark. Law of the workshop for example. In my experience when you drop a tool it will land on your foot. And the only tools people ever drop are hammers.


  1. About 6 years back I bought a new pair of shoes – Hush Puppies to be exact. Only they’d forgotten to put the hush in the puppies on this particular pair.

    Day in day out – when they were laced onto my feet anyway – with the slightest step they would sqeek away sqeek away like two rampant fieldmice were concealed in the heels. Apparently, in the exciting world of shoe sales, they do say it’s a sure fire sign they have been nicked. I got tired of the sarcasm and took them back (with me in them) to the shop for a full refund.
    As soon as I entered the place I attempted a demonstration to the shop manageress by striding out over the carpet. You guessed it – not a sound out of them.
    Dam it to hell, life is one big conspiracy to do our heads in. And it never ever fails does it.
