    LOL True, but my mother would never have tolerated that from my sister or I and indeed did not. That being said, I believe I will fight a losing battle as their father (aka LeBoyfriend) is much more liberal than me and the rudeness I've seen Mother-in-law tolerate from her Grandson does not fill me with confidence that my strict stance on respectful behaviour will in any way be supported. My disciplinary model will be the leaning tower of Pisa - undermined before I even finish building it. *sigh*

I hate it hate it hate it!
    Interesting fact - Go Compare were apparently offering a new advertising/marketing contract - their only condition was that any adverts HAD to include both the opera guy and the song, non-negotiable. Pretty much every company refused to touch it with a barge pole - one did take it though and the result is what we have! Fair play to the marketing company though, they're doing the best they can with a train-wreck of a gimmick

    Possibly one of the most strange ads going but it just makes me laugh.
