Girls...Please read the following

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

Got it?


Congratulations - You have just learnt the offside rule!
