The last hour of a night shift/long hual flight/visit from the MIL.

The time from spotting a police speed trap to the point where you realise you weren't speeding.

Any chick flick you wife makes you watch.

The wrath of a woman who's mother you have insulted.

Trabby................ :E

"visit from the MIL" - Jerricho, you thieving b*****d that was my answer!;)
This Labour govt, Noisy jnr's school holidays, the journey home after a good holiday.

"The wrath of a woman who's mother you have insulted", you're not having trouble insulting the old broom rider while the wife is in the room, are you Jerricho? I cracked that one ages ago.:p

*Jerricho kicks the cat* :p

The time it takes an unpleasant odor emitted by a co-worker to dissapate, especially when you're sitting at a radar console and can't move away.

The supposed "30 minutes"' from ordering a pizza from Dominos to it arriving at the door.

The Superbowl.

A Formula One race. Unending tedium.

The time taken by the person in front of me at the supermarket check-out to pack bags and then rummage for the debit/credit card. (and i thought w*men could multi-task)

The time taken from thinking you have an engine problem over "tiger country" to reaching glide distance to the first paddock in the wheatbelt (Western Australia) and an assured emergency landing area.

Being behind a MK 5 old lady in the post office queue, never experienced it meself, but I have read the books, once behind a Mark 4 and that was bad enough.
Fortunaltly one had a flask of tea and some sarnies about one's person on that occasion, a sleeping bag would have been handy though.

Women.....

when they drive you somewhere
when in a retail outlet queue
when trying to choose a film to rent
when doing their make up
when choosing an outfit
when talking on the phone
when choosing a holiday

Its amazing human society has got so far at the speed women work ;)

The time between filing my income tax declarartion and the tax refund actually arriving in my bank account.

In Berlin, this sometimes used to be less than two weeks until 2002. Then they reaarranged the local tax ofices. Now it may take over three months...

Mastering another language

Your bag on a conveyor belt when you know just past security there is top tottie waiting for you and/or the hotel bar closes in 10 minutes

A dump, when you know you really need it and it's your last chance for 10 hours to have one

when you're married to one.
when you're divorced from one (and paying for it).

Stay out if you are faint hearted and always blame the Americans/French/British (delete as applicable)

You beat me to it Mad's dad. I was going to post "a visit to the dentist". Had a root canal done yesterday and was surprised to see that my kids were still living at home when I got back. I'd have thought they'd have had enough time to finish exams, university and get a job while I was being drilled and filled.
