That's also true.

Dear George Osborne, were you really crying over Thatcher?

Be honest, you had a pair of tweezers hidden down there didn't you?

My name is Womble and I went to the funeral procession.

Dear woman at the Virgin Active gym last night - I have noticed you over the last three months. It's difficult not to as on occasions you have been bent over a bench working your triceps in front of me and that has left me thanking whoever invented Lycra. Thank you for the smile yesterday - it really made my day. And if I'd had the nerve I would have congratulated you. They are magnificent.

DF3 has hit the nail on the head.

Bombs and death in Iraq happen so often, they are not "news" any more.

You run an excellent practice and I've been coming to you for 20 years. I've always been very happy with the service and treatment.

I don't doubt the professionalism and skill with which you installed that crown today but for £400 it had better last a long long time ... £400 ... ouch.

perhaps he was moved to tears by the service for Mrs T, perhaps he was reminded of other funerals that were more personal to him.  Funerals can get you like that.

You're assuming George Osborne has a soul then Miffi?

Some wag in the Guardian suggested it was because he'd realised he was no longer the second most unpopular person in Britain

I am so tired of these soshul meeja campaigns trying to get people to make a spurious "look at me, I'm in with the in-crowd" gesture in "solidarity" with something or other. Usually dreamt up as a clever wheeze on Facebook or Twatter over a double espresso by a bunch of "creatives" in skinny jeans, sleeveless pullovers and oversized fake NHS glasses. And usually urged on us by someone who's not been on the forum before. A minute of so of contemplation and reflection is quite enough and more appropriate.

Dear MIL - whilst I don't mind your first words when you come in being "Stick the kettle on", even though I might be doing something else, I would really appreciate it if you'd use the coasters to put your mug on. In fact it's difficult to miss the coasters as there are generally at least 3 on each table, but you somehow manage to do this. I've even watched you carefully move a coaster to one side so that you can make a nice ring on my rather expensive furniture.

The next time I will be making a similar mark on your forehead.

Dear work colleague,

Repeating comedy sketch show catchphrases some of which that are nearly 30 years old does not make you a comedy genius but it could make me into a murderer.

Stop for both our sakes........ and because I said the word "stop" this is not your cue to say "carry on"

oirish, you should beat him to the punchline with a "hammertime" of your own.

Or just beat him with a hammer.

My thoughts too, Muttley.

I used to work with a bloke like that, his speciality was reeling off Monty Python sketches - luckily he was out on his rounds most of the day because he really was an utter twat.

And mine. Glad I'm not the only one to find the whole thing cringeworthy, as I was feeling a big guilty. Even though I do feel a sense of solidarity.

Dear PPI call centre person - I have already explained I'm not interested and have asked repeatedly to be taken off of whatever list you have me on. I feel it necessary to warn you and your work colleagues that I'm currently looking at air horns on Amazon should you decide to call again

I have mentioned this problem three times to 2 different people.

So how come when I just mentioned it in the meeting one of you behaved as if it was the first time you have heard of it?

And how come the person who is supposed to be able to fix it hasn't fixed it?
