    Spending like a man with no arms????

    Someone at work has just used this saying only to set half the office in hysterics......

    Anyone know what it actually means or why??? Seems to contradict!!!

    They are not spending because they have no arms to pay for items :thinking:

    does it not mean they are not spending as the man with no arms cant reach his wallet.

    I have long arms too but I'm only 5ft 11" and it makes me look like a monkey :cry:

    It isn't a contradiction - you spend like a man with no arms i.e you don't - you cant get your hand in your pocket or wallet so you dont spend anything.

    Similar to as useful as a one legged man in an ar** kicking contest - he can't kick as he only has one leg and would therefore fall over.

    However a no-armed man in this household would spend like the clappers - as his other half would nick his cards and cash and be off like a shot!! :thumbsup:
