    Need to ask a rhetorical question? Here's the place to do it!

    So I decided it was about time we had a new thread, a la the moan/happy threads, and so here is a safe place to ask those pesky rhetorical questions that you might not want to share with your nearest and dearest. I thought of this a little earlier as I found myself wondering:

    Is it wrong to follow a man around the supermarket because he smells nice?

    Over to you, fill yer boots!

    Hi Charlie, Herewith reply from an ex Sailor with a Son Just leaving the army.

    I would say by all means follow the bloke if you are having fun. If it were me you were following
    I would spot you no doubt. Face you and say Hi ! How are You ? Invite you for an in store coffee maybe
    and a further sniff of my after shave (Aramis)

    Would you accept the invitation for a coffee Charlie ?

    Is it strange to find it devastatingly attractive, and a bit of a turn on, to find that I've turned my Scottish boyfriend into a huge hockey fan?!

    Is it illegal to squirt washing up liquid on cars that get to close when you are walking on roads that have no pavements?

    Or

    If I thumped a work colleague would anyone start a media campaign to keep me my job?

    Or

    Why is that anything I suggest to the teenagers is automatically wrong?

    Or

    Why does only one head light go in the car when they were originally put in at the same time and are used the same amount?

    Or

    Why is it when I feel pants the music on the radio is always rubbish?

    Why do men think that walking (or in this case driving) away from them means I want you to follow me?

    Am I actually invisible... both in person and when I type anything anywhere. (I mean, it's either that or I'm just really not worth even being polite to. Sigh.)

    Fuck fuck fuck fuck is this going to be the undoing of me? How do ex boyfriends manage to keep a hold over you for so long after they fucked off from your life? Am I going to turn back into a quivering wreck again? Am I going to end up losing months of sleep again? Why has my exes best friend walked into my fucking place of work hundreds of miles from where I last saw them? Why the actual FUCK are they on my patch Facebook page? Am I paranoid or is it just likely all these things are a horrible coincidence because the army is a small world? Is my worst fear about to be realised and people from that time are going to start re surfacing in my life?
    Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck. Panic attack

    Why can none of my friends get their heads around that I CAN'T go for 'early' drinks at 7pm (at a location near to them but an hour from my home) on a weeknight when I get up at 3.30am and do more than 100 miles to get to work and back everyday?!

    Why the actual fuck should I have to compromise on this when you're the selfish, immature, lying piece of crap?! (Edit: Especially when it is very similar to something I suggested and you met it with, "what?! No. You don't need to come on/near camp and I don't want you coming on it. Ever. This isn't Germany." )

    On a related note: Does anyone want Baby Egieoh and I for a day so that the title hasn't a clue where we are? OR just Baby Egieoh so that I can do a selfish equivalent, but the baby be looked after?
