A bakery owner hires a young female clerk who likes to wear very short skirts and thong panties. One day a young man comes into the store, glances at the clerk and glances at the loaves of bread behind the counter. Noticing the length of her skirt (or lack thereof) and the location of the raisin bread - on the very top shelf - he politely says to the young woman, "I'd like some raisin bread, please."

She climbs up a ladder to reach the raisin bread, providing the young man with an excellent view, just as he surmised she would. When she comes down the ladder, he says he really should get two loaves as he is having company for dinner.

As the clerk retrieves the second loaf of bread, one of the other male customers notices what is going on. Thinking quickly, he orders a loaf of raisin bread so he can continue to enjoy the view. With each trip up the ladder, the young lady seems to catch the eye of another male customer. Pretty soon, each male customer is asking for raisin bread just to watch the young woman climb up and down.

After many trips, she is tired, irritated and thinking she is really going to have to try the raisin bread herself. Once again she is up the ladder retrieving a loaf of raisin bread for another male customer. She stops and fumes, glaring at the men below. She notices an elderly man standing among the crowd of males looking up at her who hasn't placed an order yet.

Thinking to save herself another trip up and down the ladder, she yells at the elderly man, "Is yours raisin, too?" "No," croaked the old man, "but it's a quiverin'..."

Pilotwolf: don't get upset about the title of the thread. Much of what is posted here is neither boring nor pointless. Virtually everyone who posts here regularly is an animal lover and we all sympathise with you. If you want to rant and rave or just sob quietly in the corner about the loss of Skippy, feel free to do so here. You'll meet nothing but sympathy. If you don't want to post, that's fine, but the best wishes are still there mate.

Sorry but to be lumped in with all the crap that is here just reduces my loss and that of Franks to nothing - always supported PPRuNe but after this well as far as I m concerned right now... F*CK THEM!

Skippy was my child/kid/baby/confidant/'partner' but hey it seems as he was 'ONLY' a dog he doesn't matter enough not to be merged. WELL F*CK PRUNE - thanks to it's mods its just lost a supporter of over 5 years.

Good luckto you all.

Bye.

My thoughts exactly. All I can say, PW, is that I'm sure the mods didn't mean any harm or disrespect by moving your post, I remember the foul mood I was in for a while after Moxy died so I guess what I'm trying to say is take some time out, get it out your system. I know you feel like shit, but things, given time, will get better.

Frank Furillo & PilotWolf were both sent a PM with condolences about the death of their pet and were asked to post their sad news here rather than as separate threads. The one reacts grateful for the pointer, the other takes it as a personal offence. Two people in similar circumstance reacting totally different to the same message.

People differ, and this is a perfect demonstration of how we all see what we are predisposed to see. Food for thought.


My 1st day of stand by ended 30 mins ago, so now I'm going to Nairobi tomorrow. Nice familiar flight, nice modern 777, nice pax, smooth start. Perhaps a beer or 3 with the BA colleagues in the hotel bar tomorrow night.

PW - you've probably logged off by now but I am so sorry to hear of Skippy's passing! Having met him at a miniGatbash I can really understand how heartbroken you must be. Don't quite understand why your post was merged here ... as one who frequents the TrabThread I agree with Gouabafla but definitely appreciate that as you are not a poster in this thread you might feel scorned by the action of merging.

Edited: 'cos falps was posting at the same time!

PW asked me to delete my post of sympathy as he deleted his original post and the sense may have been lost.

Could I respectfully suggest that similar posts are moved to Agony Aunt where messages of sympathy and tales of similar bereavement will be treated graciously?

I do see PW's point on such a sad occassion and to have his grief mixed in with the humour means that it could lose its significance.

Cheers

YES I FIND YOUR ACTIONS VERY OFFENSIVE - PM or not - course I could suggest why but hey whats £3k or the death of a loved one to you or your friend. Hope you enjoy your flight and layover - hope your never in the same situation.

Thanks WG. x

Firstly may I say thankyou to everybody who has expressed condolences to both myself and pilotwolf.
I have to admit I was supprised by flapsforty's post, however I am sure it was not meant with mallice. At times like this animal lovers all feel sadness, maybe it would be nice to have some guidence were to post when we lose our companions/friends/children who are also called pets. I have seen in the past people opening threads regarding their animals, maybe we should, as suggested by whillygig, post on agony aunt.
If there were more dog and cat lovers the world would be a better place .

Steady, PW, I would have thought your post was moved because the mods knew it would be given a sympathetic view here; possibly even sharing commiserations with others similarly bereft in the last few weeks. You're deeply upset, but don't whistle potential new friends down the wind just yet. We genuinely want to help.

At the risk of being insenstive, I note that no one has posted in nearly 4hrs, the Antips are not to be seen, and I think it might be a moot point unless we move forward.

Regarding Boris & the latest - http://edinburghnews.scotsman.com/ed...fm?id=80902006

Its been a long day and I'm calling time.

Hmmm.. I think a lot of us are letting things settle before going back to what we do best. The pet piccies opened quite a can of worms, and I think only time can heal some wounds.

PW, we feel for you and your loss, and can understand your frustration.

On another subject... I'm watching a very painful TV show... It's American Idol #5. Like watching a train wreck. You want to turn your head, you want to look away, but you just can't. Ouch... That's gonna leave a mark.

Morning all ... there seems to have been a bit of disquiet in here overnight while I was asleep. I would start by posting a message of commiseration to pilotwolf but there seems little point ... I don't really think he's going to come back in here to read it. It's a great pity because, as Ms. Stockpicker says, just about all the major contributors to this thread have animals, or have had them in the past, and understand very well the grief that comes with losing them. I think pilotwolf has deprived himself of the support of some very understanding people.

'Tis overcast again today and another monsoonal low is forming off the Kimberleys which may turn into yet another tropical cyclone. Storms that affect the western side of Oz plus the northern bits are often generated in either the Timor or Arafura seas and swing around the top left hand side. They may go out to sea for a while and gather force before heading inland to wreak havoc and destruction. Our cyclone season is December to March, so we're right in the middle of it. Cyclones have usually well and truly degenerated into rain-bearing depressions by the time they get this far down the coast but we do occasionally get hit by one almost full force.

One's peach tree is fully loaded again this year and the first ones should be ready in a few days. Mmmmmm ... fresh peaches. Yummmmmmmmmmmmyyyyyyy

Yess'm, blaufrau, we miss a lot of the excitement, don't we?
Mmmm, one could do with a few hundredweight of peaches. Thems make a luvverly wine. Not one to imbibe one is instead fond of stocks for cooking purposes. 'tis true, yer honour. lived a short time in a house with orchard wot had apricots, peaches and stuff as a sprog.

Finished work at 6:30 of the morning and immediately abed. This 3:00pm rise and shine does nothing for on'e get-up-and-go.

Well I don't know about a few cwt, Rossco, but if your import regulations permit, maybe I could send you at least some?

So kind of you to arrange that, tinny, but we're still mopping up from the last one ... perhaps you could put it on hold for a while? Send it back out and point it in the direction of the open ocean or something.

Finished work at 6:30 of the morning and immediately abed.
Another late night of proonin' ahead then, Rossco?
