It's a wonder we weren't surrounded by police when we emerged from the cathedral.....

It is a really, really bad idea to try to remove a book from near the bottom of the Unread Book Cupboard.

When someone lends you a book that was a Christmas present, don't leave it on the coffee table and then knock your glass of lemonade over near it.

Since lemonade is colourless, I'm hoping the book won't be too badly damaged once it's dried out. But I may have to consider buying a replacement.

I have a long and similar anecdote involving a borrowed academic tome, a paper bag and a glass of wine. Fortunately I didn't have to replace it because it'd probably have been about £40!

That's a very expensive paper bag.

This book is £12.99, which I'd rather not spend unless I have to. :)

Yes, it was the academic tome that cost £40, not the paper bag! (I can't imagine what a £40 paper bag would look like - perhaps covered in origami created by some eminent personage?)

My guess is that if you did you wouldn't be spending it on a paper bag!

After spending a little time unsuccessfully trying to remove a speck of dirt from a PC screen, it is worth checking that it is not, in fact, a stray full-stop on a page in a Word document...

Cutting yourself should be treated as a cue to review your washing up technique, don't wait for it to happen a second time (at least I avoided a trip to A&E this time).

It is very rude to tell a customer that their writing is illegible.

All right, it wasn't my neatest writing ever :oops: :lol:, but they made me write my details on 6 different forms because apparently they couldn't put more than one order on each form and it couldn't be done by computer because it had to be sent to a different section and the systems weren't linked :banghead:, and I was in a rush because I had to be somewhere else!

Milk goes in the fridge. The kettle may look like a 4-pint carton of milk, but it actually goes back on its base on the worktop.

When printing a document, it is advisable to switch the printer on first.

Hah! I put the tin of cocoa powder in the fridge, then picked up the milk and was about to put it on the shelf where the cocoa lives when I realised that something wasn't quite right.

Laminators die if you put undersized bits of paper in them.

That's me at the bottom of the boss's Christmas card list then :(
