Also - when you bend down to tie your shoe laces and try to think what else you can do while you're down there....

I take it we're all hearing Denis Norden's voice when reading these.

My fave of his: "When you bend down to tie your shoe laces, and ask yourself if there's anything else that needs doing while you're down there". :lol:

That's alright, Pete.

It's if -after counting it out in their hand - you say "....and that makes 10 pounds" (or whatever the amount is) that the game's up! :lol: :lol:
