"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

I'm on the train...

Thanks again to T.K. for this.

You know how irritating mobile phone users are when they fail to exercise discretion and simple good manners and think the world needs to know their business?

When you have tolerated as much as you can stand you can now get your own back!!!


 After a busy day he settled down in his train from Waterloo for a nap as far as his
 destination at Winchester. when the chap sitting near him hauled out his mobile 
and started up:- "Hi darling it's Peter, I'm on the train - yes, I know it's the 6.30 not 
the 4.30 but I had a long meeting - no, not with that floozie from the typing pool, with 
the boss no darling you're the only one in my life - yes, I'm sure, cross my heart" etc., etc.

This was still going on at Wimbledon , when the young woman opposite, driven 
beyond endurance, yelled at the top of her voice, "Hey, Peter, turn that bloody phone 
off and come back to bed!!"
