I mistakenly went into a Chinese takeaway once and asked for 20 number 6.

Got about 500 pork balls handed back!

Showing your age there Paul Number 6 I don’t think you can even see what make the fags are now as it’s all shut up behind them with kill notes all on them .

Yes I wrote “thank you “ with out thinking that’s because we was brought up not dragged up .
Talking smoking and for the many who know my dad he was brought up in a sweet shop and they sold fags as well but he will all ways say I have never smoked until we went horse racing one day and he had to many drinks he thought he would try a cigar and was sick as a dog . Can’t repeat what we called him after that .

Also I say it again I do love these memories you put up Mr Pbar I don’t know how you find them and unlock the words “ Christ I remember that “ in my little head . Nice one mate :applaud:

Dead right. Do as you are told and eat the wholesome meal that has been made just for you. Or starve!

Still remember mum telling us to eat everything that was on the plate and just think of the poor starving in India. Probably why 50 years later I still leave nothing on the plate and weigh over 20 stone! :cheese: :kebab: :beer: :banghead: :doh:

I very rarely, if ever, leave anything on my plate too. Looks like we all had an upbringing with values which are sadly missing all too often now.
