I believe I no longer do the national lottery. If I couldn't win when it was half the price and had fewer numbers, what chance would I have now ?

Have you ever won something really awful in a raffle ?

I won a hamper of alcohol at our Christmas concert. Took it all to Butlins to add to our "drinks" chalet. (Maybe minus a bottle of red wine).

Have you ever managed to mend your washing machine (error20) by pushing it on its side, pulling out all the filters and finally managing to extract some thin pink knicker ribbon which was wrapped around in the innards. Happy days its working now!

Not the washing machine but a Dyson heater. Reported fault to Dyson who wanted to know the serial number which was on the base. Turned it upside down to find it and accidentally dropped it on it's head. Worked fine afterwards.

Have you ever wondered why Donald Trump chooses to have that ridiculous hairstyle ?

Only once; when some crass and utterly insensitive idiot carried on loading her shopping onto the belt right through the two minutes silence on Armistice Day. Then she chatted away to the checkout operator as though she was totally oblivious of what she'd done . . .
:mad:

Have you ever spent the best part of an hour, wandering round a vast field full of people, looking for a bag - only to have a friend collapse in hysterics, before pointing out that the bag in question was on your back?

(in my defence, yer honour, I'd point out that it was a historical re-enactment set in the English Civil War, I was playing the role of a matchlock-armed infantryman, and those poor devils were loaded down with enough bags, belts, ammo, sword, scabbard, food, water and other junk to make an Army pack mule complain!)

Yes - and I wondered how long it would be before I started talking to an inanimate object (like Tom Hanks in 'Castaway').

Have you ever ridden a motorbike three times round a massive roundabout, looking for the exit sign to take you on towards Piccadilly Cicus, before glancing up, seeing the statue of Eros, and realising that you were actually riding round Piccadilly Circus . . . :rolleyes:

Only driven once in London and hope I never have to again. Have ridden a motorbike from Shrewsbury to Hereford which took me 7 hours because I innocently thought it would be signposted all the way.

Have you ever wondered if the posters on Mumsnet are as feisty in real life as they are online?
