When I learned the answer to this question, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I still don't...... I sit opposite a really quite foxy young lady in my office who, on the whole, is quite a smart little cookie. Or so I thought until she told me what she did last night..... She got home from work and went into the livingroom to turn on the television. I think Hollyoaks or something was about to start, so she was all fired up to watch it, but when she tried to turn on the telly, all she got was a loud clicking noise and no picture or sound. The telly in question is a 32'' Panny which is a couple of years old and has always worked fine. Now it doesn't and she is starting to panic: "Hollyoaks is on in a minute and I HAVE to watch it!" she howls (or some such similar cry of distress). "What am I to do??? ". Her boyfriend is out at this time and won't be back for hours. "Ah, I know" she says, "I'll get the telly upstairs and bring it down!" - Now some background here is important so we can get into her mind at this point. They live happily together in a communal grade 2 Listed Building with a shared Sky service. They also have a spare 28''' Sony widescreen telly upstairs which is connected to a small portable indoor aerial for Channels 1-5. No Sky multiroom setup (owing to the dish sharing). Ok, at this point the smart ones among you (well those who watch soaps anyway ) will say: "Hang on Foxy, love. You don't need to move the telly. Just watch Hollyoaks on Channel 4 upstairs!" No-Can-Do! She wants to watch E4 and catch 2 episodes in a row - you can apparently do this with soaps? - so the Sony has to come downstairs! Now!! So off she toddles upstairs to get the 28'' Sony. But it's rather heavy, you see and Big Strong Boyfriend won't be home for absolutely ages! She can't lift it properly and carry it herself. So she wrestles the telly off the table, onto it's screen and then slides it easily across the floor to the top of the stairs!! Then she slides it down the stairs (very carefully she tells me!) just letting it bump a teeny bit on each step - it's heavy you know! (At this point her absent boyfriend possibly feels a slight tightening in his testicular area, but can't figure out why.... ) After about 15 minutes of this careful sliding and gentle bumping, she gets it into the livingroom, ready to watch. (God only knows if Hollyoaks has started or not??) So she tries to put it onto the telly stand, but the darn 32'' Panny is in the way.!! So she stands over the Panny, grips it with both hands and tries to lift it off the stand. No deal. So she places a sofa pillow on the side of the stand and carefully pushes the Panny onto it.........CRASH!! It misses the pillow and cracks its frame on the carpet! At the same time, the Sky box goes sliding across the shelf (due to the Scart lead only being just long enough) and smashes one of their wedding picture frames into splinters! "Oh, no the wedding picture!!!" "What will I do?? I know, I'll watch Hollyoaks!! " But the 28'' Sony is still face-down on the carpet. So she picks it up and puts her back out!! So she drops the Sony on the floor and cracks the frame and the screen on that one! (Boyfriend feels much sharper pain in his nether regions and feels sick to his stomach) Boyfriend decides to limp home to find her tearful on the sofa with a bad back and the shattered wedding photo clutched to her breast. He can't watch any telly because both are narked! Tonight she is meeting Big Strong Boyfriend so he can buy them a new LCD that she can easily carry around the house!! But first she has to call the insurance company and explain what happened - will I be listening in on that conversation? Oh yes!!
