Testing the boundaries.
The French, Samoan, Australian and New Zealand 13 a side rugby teams on the Toulouse flight. On the other side of the aisle two huge and heavily tatooed Maoris. Each of them has brought on board a plastic bag containing four tubes of Pringles potato chips. They graze on these throughout the flight.
Angus leaves his airline dinner untouched. The rugby player across the aisle turns and says '' You not eating that mate ? ". Without further ado his empty tray is swaped for my full one. Never has a British Airways meal been consumed with such gusto. The phrase '' he's as broad as he is tall " not an exaggeration when it comes to some members of the New Zealand team.
Time for 'the font' to set off to the airport . Bob refuses to get into the back of the car. He leaps onto a garden table and won't move. When he does move it's back at high speed into the house to play hide and seek under a bed. He's having great fun. 'The font' mindful of the time, is less enthusiastic about this game. The PON duo are finally enticed into their pen with a Carrs Water Biscuit . They are left alone in the house to ponder the wisdom of not obeying commands.
