    My favourite is the 'Best Car Boot Sale and Charity Shop Bargains' thread. I love reading about the bargains people got and where they've been etc. Plus everyone's really nice over there!

    Favourite thread? How on earth can I choose just one from so many? At the moment my favourite thread is the Las Vegas thread as I am planning a holiday. There is so much useful information here. Thanks everyone.

    I just enjoy reading them because there are a lot of unintentional comedians on there and so much of it is common sense. Perhaps not so common. One wonders how we survived the days when there was no-one, just yourself to sort things out. most of these people would not have survived the computerless days

    DD caught us having sex.....

    was great entertainment, but I think most of us were also worried about the same thing happening to us one day.....

    and the grown up child who heard their mother shouting something like "do it for the Grand Slam, Don" because Scotland were up to win the Grand Slam, then someone took that and used it as their signature!!

    Another vote for 'My daughter caught us........'.

    It made me laugh and cringe in equal amounts!

    Definitely my favourite. The most funny thing I have read in ages. He fought back and won - well, due to the DCAs mistake it should never have happened in the first place. But the thread also showed that despite a mix up, DCAs (debt collection agencies) hound people. If they do that when its an error, what are they like with the genuine debts that people are worried sick over??


    Anyway, altogether now... ##"a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh"###
