    Apart from the two's and thro's going on here which are somewhat entertaining let alone bemusing.
    He's boring the pants off me in fact bored my pants off.
    Cman, he doesn't seem to understand, I think a lack of comprehension is a better way to describe.

    RULE NUMBER 2..... Don't forget rule Number 1

    Great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

    A good idea as whatever you said fell on deaf ears.
    You couldn't get through to him with a well placed 5 pound hammer round his head.

    Or in this case mule.
    Bored with him Baz
