If it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid.

So Kerry you never had a mate ring you at home on a land line asking where you are at & this was years ago before anyone we knew had a mobile phone , but the most silliest question I get asked is when someone walks up to me & asks me what am I doing ! The other day I had a soapy sponge in my hand rubbing on the car & with a hose I was washing it off so when asked I said "I was fitting another 12 volt plug in the camper... why? did it look like I was washing the car!"

^^^ OH NO!!! You blew it on that one Jfold!!

TLC highlighted the right sort of response for us in his post!!

You've obviously been letting those wonderful opportunities to provide REALLY silly answers to one of those perfectly good (but misplaced) questions, slip thru your fingers Jfold!!! :whyme: You gotta learn to jump on them at every opportunity!! :p
