Right, off you go then and please post the link to the thread (if its allowed). I will pay the 20bucks or whatever it is to log on from 37000 feet to follow it.

On my way to LHR tomorrow to meet Mrs Shed but if the EW thread is good enough, I will get her to stir it up with some of her log ins.

KC, can you add some devil stuff to the thread so that Mrs Shed thinks I am creative and all that stuff :-).

Night all.

Think that would have to be a brand new shiny thread to debate that

My first director in Dubai had a similar problem. His wife's solution was to buy several sets of matching single coloured cotton shirts and capri trousers and told the maid that was what she had to wear around the house.
I have the opposite problem. My maid is always smartly dressed and respectable. I'd love a stolen glimpse of her button arse while she polishes my taps.

Mrs M has only been away 4 days and I've already gone feral.

Oh, the hardship you guys suffer over the border................[sarcasm]

Four months in and someone handed me a glass of wine and a tear actual formed in one eye. I brushed fingers with an intriguing member of the opposite gender and was confused. The goodbye hug she gave left me considering running away and travelling the Amazon. It would help if a girl I know there dared me to say I didn't love my promised one and offered me an open invitation of a life of 'travelling' with her, whilst simultaneously doubting my sanity.

But, onto the BO. We're all professionals. Shower and deodrant. As to bad breath, isn't that what the miswack is for? Buy some in and offer it as a 'ramadan gift' to the muslims. It then doesn't become accusations, but a normal, day to day thing. Hell, even say your mouth is like a cats litter tray and you need instructions on how to use one yourself.

This is just a typically British problem. How to offend without offending. Its the same with fat people, yes I said FAT people !! A polite but to the point "you stink" is perfectly appropriate !! Whats the issue ? If he does stink then although moderately embarrased he will probably be pleased to know so he can do something about it.

You are making it sound like a bad trait.
