If you went to a fancy South Indian restaurant and ordered the most expensive thing on the menu (2 Lobster Malabari) and the waiter started making light conversation while you were waiting for the meal and he asked what you did for a living would you lie if you were on disability benefits and make up a job or would you tell him you received benefits?

i'd avoid the issue in fact did it today with the aa mechanic who got my scooter started, though he phoned up at my girlfriends and my girlfriend well he would have noticed

He said theres degrees with these things

Ramboghettouk - At first I thought you meant mobility scooter then I thought why would you need the AA lol, then I twigged. I used to ride a Honda C90 back in the day, Loved that bike!

maybe i could be accused of putting my girlfriend down, i was surprised she handled the call from the aa mechanic at her place so well whilst i was out, my sisters right i should have more respect for her, unfortunately respecting women isn;t the way to have your depraved way with them

And you shouldn;t have assumed mobility scooter either

If you REALLY want to lay it on, when he serves the lobster look down at it, do a double take and say to it with tears in your eyes "Pinky, is that you?!..."

Hehehe, free lobster I reckon!

and of course if you do lie that is covering up the fact there are people on benefits in the community been tarred as scroungers

Not so long ago a friend would take groups of people who'd come out of hospital to restuarents like that, the idea was they'd go on to do it by themselves and no one used the word scrounger about them
