Pass it on,I know lots of cheap women.

Cherrytree59 Wed 17-May-17 19:42:28

Well there is cheap and there is Cheap...

rosesarered Wed 17-May-17 21:40:26

Are they a loose fit?

Anniebach Wed 17-May-17 21:42:12

I am cheap 😀, not from choice

rosesarered Wed 17-May-17 21:45:01

But if you buy those sandals ab you could soon have money! grin

Anniebach Wed 17-May-17 21:58:49

True Roses 😀

Ana Wed 17-May-17 22:04:32

I hope they aren't second-hand! (or foot...)

Jalima1108 Wed 17-May-17 22:07:12

I'm quite cheap to run - meaning I don't spend a lot!!
May I have a pair please.

Anniebach Wed 17-May-17 22:12:13

I want a pair too, I don't spend a lot, only because I don't have a lot to spend grin

"If the cap fits"
No of course not I like to think we are all high maintenance "ladies",some more than others, wink

rosesarered Thu 18-May-17 10:25:15

Is the cap cheap as well ann?

SueDonim Thu 18-May-17 13:14:25

Just be thankful you don't belong to the Loose Women's Institute, in Kent! grin

rosesarered Thu 18-May-17 15:05:26

Haha! I don't think I could join that.grin
I wonder if there is a Tight Womens Institute anywhere?

Ana Thu 18-May-17 15:08:26

Yes, I'm sure quite a few of us would be eligible to join that! grin

Ana Thu 18-May-17 15:09:20

(not as in mean, you understand...)

As this conversation is headed Pedant's Corner, I will tell you a joke I enjoy:
Q: " Who led the Pedant's Revolt?"
A: " Which Tyler"

(this makes sense if you know that the Peasants' Revolt was led by Wat Tyler.....)
I hope this made someone smile - or even laugh!

Ana Thu 18-May-17 17:35:52

Hmm...but why only one Pedant?

rosesarered Thu 18-May-17 20:14:06

Haha applegran ....... ignore the pedants on here! grin

rosesarered Thu 18-May-17 20:15:49

.......isn't Wat Tyler part of the Trusted Traders Group?
