    Shout out to the 116yr old compers! 4th Mar 17 at 1:43 PM
    I'm intrigued as to how many 116 yr old compers there are out there. Must be a few judging by the drop down D.O.B menus on a lot of the comps out there!

    I love the occasional dropdowns where you get the choice of Lord, Lady, Dr, Rev etc

    Fast forward a few weeks, and we got a call from Virgin, just to check with Sir Alan that all was well, and that we were happy with the service. Didn't have the heart to correct the young man, but I had one very irritated husband, made worse when the kids kept calling him Sir for the next few weeks

    Tis even worse when your year of birth is not on the drop down menu and your told you are too old to enter

    I hate the drop-down lists of 'counties' which give a random assortment of Cities, towns and Counties and yours isn't listed. Yeah I get that a lot Mansey. Pfft.
