Woman please let me explain

Here's a handy explanation for the summer for all the women out there:


You're in a shoe shop, second in the queue for the till. Behind the shop assistant on the till is a pair of shoes which you have seen and which you must have.

The female shopper in front of you has seen them also and is eyeing them with desire.

Both of you have forgotten your purses.

It would be totally rude to push in front of the first woman if you had no money to pay for the shoes.

The shop assistant remains at the till waiting.

Your friend is trying on another pair of shoes at the back of the shop and sees your dilemma.

She prepares to throw her purse to you.

If she does so, you can catch the purse, then walk round the other shopper and buy the shoes.

At a pinch she could throw the purse ahead of the other shopper and, *whilst it is in flight* you could nip around the other shopper, catch the purse and buy the shoes.

Always remembering that until the purse had *actually been thrown* it would be plain wrong to be forward of the other shopper.

See below............






Congratulations! - you have just learned the offside rule!


No offence meant as I know there's quite a few women out there who know a lot more than some of us guys.

Get real! Do you honestly think a woman would forget her purse when she goes shopping? :) Thanks for the explanation.

I have bear pics on my blog - I thought you might be interested.

That was pretty good. But Ginny does have a point.

Shame you can't make it, you shall be missed.

Of course that would never actually happen but still a good way of figuring out the offside trap in Footy.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh,

It all makes sense now. Or it would, did I carry a purse ;) I'm one of the ladies who believes if it doesnt fit in my back pocket, I dont need it.

Me too AC! I refuse to carry a bag, if it dont go in the pocket, it stays at home!

Although that description baffled more than the original explanation of the rules did!
I think my brother originally demonstrated it for me with jelly babies!
