» Well, that taught 'em

Not me but a mate
He got so tired of his then partner dragging him around clothes shops to watch her spending *entire afternoons* trying on stuff she was never going to buy "just in case she found something", that he decided to get his own back.

As the were walking past their local Waterstone's, he asked if they could "just pop in to see if there was anything he wanted". He then went around randombly picking books up, flicking through them, moving on to another, going back to a previous one. Within a few minutes, she was hanging around on the ends of the aisles, kicking her heels, sighing, asking how much longer he'd be, was he going to buy anything etc....i.e. all the things he got into trouble for doing when she was doing her "shopping".

Yet she never made the connection.

» Spoilt Brats

Child psychology
About ten years ago I worked on English language summer camps in Spain; basically so the parents who had the money could offload their offspring onto someone else for a couple of weeks during the summer holidays. We took kids as young as 8 or 9, up to about 17. Anyway...

There was a 9 year old called Bruno who was he most obnoxious, foul-mouthed little brats any of us had ever come across. He spent his first morning insulting all the other kids, so by the end of day one, even the most mild mannered, understanding ones would have nothing to do with him.

He also enjoyed putting his hand up the girls' skirts and grabbing their tits if they were old enough to have any, then running to the nearest monitor in tears expecting sympathy when he got hit.

When we finally got to meet his parents and tell them the trouble he'd had (and we didn't tell them the half of it) they just said "Well we think it's important for him to express himself."

They were both child psychologists.

» Sexism

Studs and slags
In my school sociology class, I was taught that a man who sleeps around is considered a stud, but when a woman does the same she's a slag.

Maybe in 1973, but nowadays a woman who sleeps around is liberated but when a man does it, he's a manipulative bastard who's only after one thing. Same if you cheat on your partner: if he does it, he's a bastard, if she does it it's because she was unhappy.

In fact, when the female partner of a friend of mine (and mother of his child) took to shagging the neighbours as she "felt trapped in the relationship", many of her female friends rallied round her; after all, how terrible does your man have to be to drive you to something like that? I wonder how they'd have felt if he'd done the same to her?

» Misunderstood

When I was a kid my ma made us a special cake one Sunday afternoon which we'd been looking forward to all day. When it came out of the oven and colled down enough, we all had a slice and found it to be totally uneatable 'cos it made our eyes water.

Turns out that when she'd seen the words "grate a little nutmeg" in the recipe, she'd taken all her nutmegs out of the store, picked the smallest one (a little nutmeg) and grated the whole thing into the mix.

How we laughed.
