Have you noticed in every thread where something is wrong it's always "the few"? The self centered ones who are to blame. Whether it's Motorhomers parking in Scarborough, Anglers leaving a mess, Benefits cheats, bigots or Racists etc, it's alway the "few". I've often wondered how many "the few" actually number, where do they live and where do they come from?

Do all the Bigoted Racists go fishing in Scarborough for a week, park their Motorhomes outside hotels and leave a mess, whilst fiddling the Dole? Or are "the few" actually numerous, scattered over many catergories, so that most people are actually a member of "the few"? But would most people admit to being one of "the few"?

Or are most people model citizens? And there really are just a few of "the few".

Just by being alive, I am one of the few. To me.... I am one of the many. If I like something, then those who also like, are one of the many! If they don't like what I like, then they are one of the few. Therefore I am guilty of being one of the few at some time or other. Sometimes I am taken as one of the many without my say so, for instance when the use of the words "Everyone" or "All of us" or indeed "We all", these words are used by people who demand that we should want what they want, when I do not want what they want. I want what I want so there!!!! Those who want what they want should leave me alone,... unless I want it, then I should be included.
I therefore am one of the few who cannot understand what you are talking about because it wasn't me.

"This story shall the good man teach his son;
and Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
from this day to the ending of the world.
but we in it shall be remember'd;
we few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
for he today who sheds his blood with me
shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
this day shall gentle his condition:
and gentlemen in England now abed
shall think themselves accursed they were not here
and hold their manhoods cheap while any speaks
that fought with us upon St Crispins Day."

Henry V - William Shakespeare

Thought it was about time for a bit of culture :D

The only part of this thread that has a grain of truth in it is the bit about "flat out 12 hours a day". :lol-049:

Or perhaps they live in "The North" - I have often followed the motorway directions to this mythical place but never seem to get there. :wave:

To beat the parking charges at Llanberis car park (by the lake) I got up at 2am this morning, walked up Snowdon, saw the sun rise, and got back down by 7.30am to move my van before 8am (when you have to pay) - so I must be classed as one of the 'few' ?
