As a single person [I do have a grandniece who is a cutey pie ]I don't like the word Gransnet as feel it is not all encompassing & we should be respected for our individauality as people not to focus on our age often causing the most concern. I suppose this is nit picking but I still feel mentally I am in my 30s ??!! Silver surfer is more fun.

We'll let you off this time gracesmum but next me you plan to go on an escalator, make sure you have a dog with you! grin

gracesmum Wed 23-Jan-13 18:54:42

Can I own up now blush to not carrying a dog on an escalator when it said clearly "Dogs must be carried"? grin I just didn't have a dog on me at the time. Would a cat have done?hmm

I confess to 'sharing' DS2's Easter eggs when he was in hospital. Well, how much chocolate can a 2-year-old eat? I saved him from obesity... wink

I've never committed the act but I think "riotously demolishing a hovel" is still on the statute book. I am still looking for a hovel I can demolish (without harming anyone or making them homeless) in a serious and solemn way.

I 'borrowed' an envelope from work to send off my travelling expense claim. They used to send them off for us but no longer because of the expense!
So we have to pay for an envelope and stamp to claim the money they owe usconfused

(I did supply my own stamp)

I used to work in a factory canteen, and a couple of times I had my dinner without paying for it, please don`t report me, I`m too old to go to jail.

I expect someone else ate it, of course, smol????

annodomini Wed 23-Jan-13 14:57:00

I finished the chocolate on Monday and managed to discipline myself not to buy some more today. grin

There speaks one who knows Elegran!

Smoluski Wed 23-Jan-13 14:10:55

No chocolate in the house sad

Elegran Wed 23-Jan-13 14:08:22

For chocolate buttons read Smarties. Choc buttons come in bags, not tubes.

Elegran Wed 23-Jan-13 14:07:26

Are the chocolate buttons in tubes? because the charity I used to be with had a good money-making wheeze (still do).

The drill is - you buy a tube of smarties, eat them, and then put your loose change into the tube, which you hand over to them when it is full. As they also buy the smarties wholesale from the cash & carry to sell to you, they make a bit more profit there.

So you can eat smarties AND help a charity. That helps the conscience no end.

Tyke! grin

Ariadne Wed 23-Jan-13 13:52:42

Oooh, there are chocolate buttons at the back of the fridge - see you later!

soop Wed 23-Jan-13 13:46:01

Yep! I popped a few of the Smartie "rewards" into my mouth during the potty-training period. Needed to replace the tube in order to cover my sin of gluttony. blush

Kali Wed 23-Jan-13 13:40:43

Can I confess to eating all the GCs 'rewards for using the potty' chocolate buttons?

Ariadne Wed 23-Jan-13 12:45:58

Or even when!

Ariadne Wed 23-Jan-13 12:45:37

glassortwo Wed 23-Jan-13 12:42:22

Smoluski Wed 23-Jan-13 12:36:17

whenim64 Wed 23-Jan-13 12:32:12

Now we have established that criminals are welcome on Gransnet, too, let's accept that this is a very open place to join in with good chat, entertainment and discussion. smile
