Cheese in the hardware shop



Dear Hillary,

Some of your sorry letter writers seem to think all women are the same.  All women are not the same.  Thai women are not the same as western ones and bar girls are a different species altogether.  They should stop feeling sorry for themselves and get out and enjoy the company of the ladies in the bars.  That’s what they’re there for.  You don’t have to buy the library when you want to read a book.

Dear Gerry from Down-Under,

Despite the 50 percent divorce rate in many countries, including Australia, all women are very obviously not the same.  I’m not like that for one.  I agree that if you want a ‘good time’, the good time girls are there to give it to you.  The problems always arise when the smitten male forgets that a good time girl is just that – a good time girl.  A girl for the good times in life, not a girl who is good for life times.  It should also be understood that a beer bar is not an outside office for an accredited match-making and marriage agency.  I have said in this column many times that you don’t go into a hardware shop if you are looking for a piece of cheese.
