lol @ this one !

I've got that,perhaps I need to use it more often if it is a cure.

Reply

Don't worry, Richard, most spouses complain of this affliction in their other half... :)

Reply

So, did I catch it from a mate or something?

Reply

Don't worry, it's in your DNA, you can't be held responsible for that! ;)

Do you suffer from selective hearing too KOTC ;) ?

Pardon.I didn't quite catch that!

I always tell her she's right,shuts her up.

Please don't panic all men have this condition & its tend to manifest it,s self when men get married you,l find it strikes most often when your wife needs you to do a small job around the house & suddenly deafness strikes, :D

A sharp kick in the ankle usually cures it

NO VIOLENCE PLEASE,,or you get a spanking,,chortle chortle xx :)

It,s not violence but remedial treatment, I prescribe it for all married women, & when men get the memory lapse then 3 ice cubes shoved down the front of underwear is the recommended treatment it,s amazing how well these cures work & "normal" service is resumed swiftly :D xxxx

Reply

That is cruel.I will report you to the NPC to HUSBANDS

I would never kick her in the ankle.Maybe up the............

I've got it covered :d xxx

Not getting! Should read ready GOT

Ah yes, selective memory. Only the male of the species seem to be afflicted with this, very rare in females. Can be catching if large numbers of males gather together, particularly in pubs :) . Those affected by selective memory are also prone to selective deafness.

Reply

I did not hear properly,but I gather many other males suffer from the sidelines of this illness

KOTC

Don't worry about it, women get it as well. Whenever I ask my wife how much her new clothes have cost us she just can't remember. It's very sad really. lol Bob

So it is catching.My wife suffers from the same condition,thank god it's only once a year for her.

Reply

Doesnt happen here I buy mine online and charge them to the old fellas account he he.

Reply

Only once a year?

No chance we have to have Spring, Summer, Autumn and winter clothes...........

It means: you remember what is good for your wellbeing - looking after no. 1. An awkward or embarrassing situation occurs and you need to talk your way out of it, you can twist your memory to cope with the situation in hand. MPs are a dab hand at it. If you are cornered by your nearest and dearest, you need the fight or flight situation, you will use your selective memory to do a runner.

Oh is that so?I can't run with my breathing.

Reply

Here goes, King. Metaphorically (sp) speaking - no offence meant at all.l. I cant help my thoughts that you are so..... just gone back 20-30 years. If you haven't seen someone face to face etc.

Reply

Oh!

Reply

King it sounds like you need your ECU put on a diagnostics test. Your hearing sensor could be playing up intermittently, mine does the same under certain conditions if you know what I mean. :)

Batteries run down.That will help my condition ,will it?

Reply

I'm sure an overnight trickle charge and a memory reprogram will put you right. Doctors don't know everything do they.

Tony Dont panic, just talk about

Reply

That's what I am doing on here.

Reply

it at your local Breathe Easy with friends ay' King.

Reply

Have they all got it to?

Reply

I'm sure everyone's got it when needed.

Reply

Is that a professional opinion? I need to know it is not contageous

Reply

I guess I could be more certain if you were a Renault Car as I have 30 years of experience on them. Tin Worm (rust) seemed pretty contageous throughout the range, computer memory loss was a disease only on the latest models and hopefully not passed on to humans. You don't drive a Renault do you, Ha Ha.

Reply

I don't think so

Reply

I believe this may answer all your questions :)

I found that to be quite intellectualy construed for my memory.Ihave selected pieces for my perusal,but have forgotten which ones they were.

Reply

Goes along with selective hearing or so my wife tells me. Nothing to worry about it s a self defence mechanism only kicks in when needed.

Reply

That has reassured me.Thank you
