I've thought of one!  :happydance:

Women who leave the seat down when they go to the toilet.. How inconsiderate!  :snigger: :winker:

 :rofl: :goodjob2: Or even after they have been to the toilet. :rofl:

'ER indoors moans at me if I leave the seat down.

I do hate the toilets that can still be found on the odd occasion in France, or certainly the last time I went there.  They are just a hole in the ground with a couple of feet impressed for you to stand with your legs apart. They stink.

Don't you have a video to show the modus operandi in full detail and technicolour.

Having spent 13 years in the Middle East I am well familiar with that sort of bog - but have never ever used one.

The lack of toilet paper and the need for manual cleaning is the reason why we were warned to never use our left hand when eating in Arab Company. It is the supreme insult to your Arab host to grab a lump of goat off the carcass with the left hand - because that hand is used for wiping your arse.  For some reason it puts the rest of the guests off their meal.... :sicky:

I reckon a survey is in order to find out the percentage of members who use their right or left hand to wipe  :snigger:

Maybe you can answer something that has always puzzled me about toilet paper. A lot of people buy recycled toilet paper, so how do the manufacturers get the used paper clean before they make it into fresh paper?

So, I can again enjoy the i30 club experience going forward.
Yes, I'm back from my NZ tour experience which was dominated by the bricks and mortar experience, aka the motel experience going forward.
Not to mention the rental car experience which took me from Christchurch to Auckland, and yes you guessed it, going forward!

Good point Jeff! Actually I've met over 40 members face to face in every state and territory of Australia and I'm still friendly with most of them. I'd like to think I'd be friendly with all if they were still active.

My wife was the same as you with arachnophobia - until we went to visit - I think it was Longleat - where there was a small section aimed at kids to handle cuddly animals.

There was a tarantula spider - not quite as big as your hand - which you could have put on your hand or arm. I managed to persuade Libby to have a go which took some doing (and bribing) but she relented. She shut her eyes and they put the spider on her hand which proceeded to walk over to her wrist. She sat there rigid, opened one eye, then the other, shuddered a bit, but then went calm. After what seemed like 5 minutes she was holding her hand up to her face to get a better look at it. She then asked me to take a photo on her phone so she could sent it to friends and family who all knew about her phobia.

Since that day she can pick up a spider without a problem. 

Man up and try it.

Here are the photos

Never!  :crazy1:

I'm proud I could even look at that photo! Not for long, but I did look!

I wouldn't have even been able to look once!  :sweating:

You couldn't look just once - so how many times did you look?.... :wacko:
