Ms Swiss has made some interesting contributions
Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

Lol!! Some of your replies are hilarious and really made me laugh, thanks! Some of the replies are just very rude and disrespectful, but never mind, some people just try to find an outlet, people misinterpreting things can be found in almost all of the started discussion-posts. Will focus on the funny ones! Thanks guys :-)

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

I think I might have found where some of your "gentlemen" have gone.


Try this thread for where some of the men have gone missing http://www.englishforum.ch/swiss-pol...-new-post.html

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

To put it in perspective - "Gentlemen" is just a sign on a toilet door, which hopefully someone will hold open, because of all the germs on the handle.

Simples. The opposite of "gentleman" is "lady".


Minor terminological objection, the opposite of a gentleman is a cad, a scoundrel, or a bounder.


I take it you meant "Counterpart".

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

Criticism does not equate to being "very rude and disrespectful."

Anyway, many women spend their late teens and early twenties riding the dick-carousel and friendzoning the 'gentlemen.' Only when the biological clock starts ticking loudly do they start looking for the said 'gentlemen' to settle down. Meanwhile, the majority of the latter have already bagged themselves 'ladies.' Isn't the poetic justice of it all so sweet?

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

After the door was opened--


She: "I certainly hope that you didn't open the door for me because I'm a woman!"


He: "I open doors for all as a matter of courtesy. You assumed I only opened the door for you because you are a woman, and while I did assume you were a lady, I realize now we both were mistaken."

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

I was just in Coop, there was a Swiss guy (business dressed) trying to hit on the lady in front of him by offering to pay for all her items, she was embarrassed he tried to strike up a conversation with her about the products she was buying, she clearly wasnt interested, payed for her stuff and hurried out. The guy told the cashier to speed up and then he ran trying to catch up with her...just funny to see.

Must have been a gentleman since he offered to pay for her goods, a normal man would have just gone straight into the conversation part!

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

A while back I was in London and was picking up some bits and pieces in the Sainsbury's at New Cross Gate. Now I have been to a lot of supermarket in my time, stood in a lot of queues, and seen a lot of items of the checkout belt, and yet the customer in front is the only one I remember as clear as day.

She was a pretty girl, maybe a little alternative in her fashion taste but definitely attactive, although the details of her looks have since faded from my memories her items have not. A prawn cocktail sandwich, a mars bar, a 12 pack of condoms and a large boxed tube of KY jelly.

I'd be surprised if the Mars bar went 12 goes before melting - unless it was double or triple 'wrapped' (certainly wouldn't want to eat it, afterwards).

I bet the only difference between her and a KitKat, is that you only get four fingers in a KitKat.

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

I went to Butlins as a kid and never saw the cock carousel; is there an adult section I missed?

As Jasper Carrott once said:
"They'd come round at night at Butlins and knock on your door 'Have you got a girl in there' No No 'Hang on a minute we'll go and get one for you'"

Perhaps you went when Butlins was segregated? I found the tunnel of love without any problems Although being the early 90s it was tucked away behind quite a bit of foliage

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

Gentlemen are a dying breed. As in: they are literally being removed from the sexual reproduction "market".

From a swedish study: Convicted criminal offenders had more children than individuals never convicted of a criminal offense.

But hey, it's not like women have a say on with whom they procreate, right...?

Maintaining the theme of summer holidays from a bygone era: I first found the toffee apples, then the candyfloss and finally the sherbet dip. She enjoyed sucking on a stick of rock.
