As a child (many moons ago) I had a book on etiquette which was even older than me. The "correct" way to address a married woman was as Mrs John Smith - women's liberation was a very long way off.

I remember even as a child feeling very indignant and thinking this wasn't right.

I remember those days lol, and even as a working woman, I had to get my husband's signature to buy a hifi on the never never from the Co-op! Grrrrr

I have been a MZZZZZ (Margaret Rutherford style) very firmly and categorically for years and I make a scene if they call me Mrs (as if that is flattering), grrr, don't get me started, I'm off for a coffee before I burn me bra  Mr

As comparatively recently as the early 1970s I was told that I must get a man (even a complete stranger off the street) to countersign my application to rent a TV.

I'll start a new topic if anyone is interested in talking about the old days.

When I get unwelcome phone calls, and the male on the other end of the phone asks me "is that Miss or Mrs". I reply (because cold calls really rub me up the wrong way  notlistening ) I reply, "why do you ask females if they are a Miss or a Mrs, when they don't ask males if they are Master or a Mr"

Rant over!

Pop a leather jacket on Jon, and you could have yourself another Mitchell brother.

(off-topic - but does anyone remember years ago Ross possibly getting whacked over by Rebekah?)

Another Corner oddity - his wife is yet another lady keeping her maiden name.

The only picture of her I've seen is this one -

You've got a mention on twitter missbeetle!

Yes I`d be interested NFWTD - seeing those old adverts that Hicks posted has got me fuming - was it really that bad?

I don't think Princess Michael sounds right, either!

...sorry for off-topic.


Has anyone ever seen Jon Corner in real life?

Or been to his swanky media-deals bar, The Landing? -


(photograph clipped from venturevillage.eu)

The Lynsey Fryatt article from the source above, entitled 'A Tale of Two Cities' has Madeleine's godfather as :

"...Jon Corner, charismatic Chief Executive...".


His charms have completely bypassed me.
