Found 11th Mar 2007
my sister told me she was in a bed shop recently and overheard some sleazy man talking to the assistant, they were showing him different beds and said "how about this one?" his reply was..
"no, it wont fit 3 in it!!"
urgh!!

a few similar things have happened to me at work..
one time i was working on the shop floor, and a man walked past and said
"thats what I like to see, a young girl on her knees!"

and the other week I was serving an old man
"thats 69p please"
"OOOOH THATS MY FAVORITE NUMBER"


whats made you cringe recently?

the new titles on hollyoaks is terrible!! definatly cringeable

The singing by some of the celebs on fame academy at the moment

the 'acting' from the character Carly in Eastenders and old people making crude and unsubtle inuendos

Crap jokes

Even writing this one makes me cringe - the thought that your parents must have had sex (only once for each child though!)

I still think in my parents case it was a miracle....both times....Thats my story and I'm sticking to it

Know what you mean - at least he has age on his side though - maybe the years will improve him (he does have a lot of issues though - partial deafness, defective vision, mother who died in a car accident, father is Phil and half brother is Ian - with all that against him, it's surprising he's not been struck dumb!)

Seeing pictures of Peter Stringfellow in his thong with huge belly hanging over the top on the beach with his latest young, gorgeous bodied girlfriends. :-(
He looks SO old and overweight next to his partners. :oops:

I know people will say 'its the money' but surely they can't be that good at acting when they are alone together in the dark of the night????:-(

Seeing a 'lady' walking towards me at work thinking to myself "that's a terrible syrup",:w00t: then upon 'her' getting nearer realising it's a bloke!!!

The word 'like' being pronounced 'lark' - usually by sub-20 year olds.
