I sighed when I read this. We can not be friends. Looks like you want gossip and not whitty banter.

Lots of parents struggle with child psychology and end up going mad. Some of them enjoy the madness. There is no real genius behind the slogan, which at best is quirky.
Wow, you're a real barrel of laughs. I can't say I've seen much in the way of wit in your posts. well, maybe half.

See, this is why you got 4 red blobs and Longbyte got 5 green blobs.

You are quirky (at best) Longbyte is Genius

Didn't you realise this is a forum and not a points scoring game.

"Virtual friends" or "real friends"?

Sometimes one needs to distinguish between a real and a virtual life, or at least get the former one. Be my guest then.

Re: English Banter!

Perhaps his style of humour is more subtle and sophisticated - something like this.

Most of the Brits I know here - well, both of them...

I'll start again. I once saw a wonderful sign.

"Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free kitten"

All Brits I told about it, fell about laughing.
Nearly everyone else, poor souls, just shook their puzzled heads.

This is my test - if they immediately laugh, they go on my "possible future friend" list. If not, then not.

You can Google it to see the picture.
I laughed, but I am absolutely not a Brit.

Do people actually care.

No Blue Peter badges are on offer or the perfect job paying millions.
