    The woman I play with gets hit in the head/face a lot, despite that she still stays on the T.

    She asked me "is it me? No-one else gets hit so much", she wasn't keen on my reply.

    I try telling ladies it's like facing a penalty in football- side by side is like two goal keepers. I can't think of a shopping analogy to use instead...

    DuckFeet, you have to thank God your partner is not your wife. Shut your mouth tight if playing with your girl friend or your wife.

    My wife won't play as for my partner - I have learned to shut my mouth, this is why I let her do what she wants and I play at the front!

    Actually, that's a lie. If I wind her up she channels her aggression well. I do worry that it might be at the back of my head one day...

    Strange, they do that in car parks aswell, instead of parking in one of the spaces they park right down the middle in two spaces just behind the T.

    You seem to understand woman, to take it further, don't say anything to a woman on court other than good shot.

    I had seen them parked in the middle of two Ts, where the upside down T and the normal T merge. One car takes up 4 parking spaces.

    No way, if you really want to make things interesting tell her not to bend over in front of you while you're trying to serve, it really messes with your focus.

    Lol, that's the kind of lady if were on a badminton court would insist in playing the back the whole match not getting one backhand over the net and clearing anything else

    Cannot be in two shops at the same time, you have to choose one shop (side), preferably the one that has better bargains (i.e. diagonally opposite the smasher).

    You are part of the reason that women want play side by side only.

    perhaps I need to leave my sense of humour at the login page like you.

    If I said that to the woman I play mixed with, she would wrap my very pretty racquet around the back of my head.

    Forcing them to play mixed is a little sexist, no? If they want to play levels, let them. Always let the woman decide and if you don't like that, don't play with them.

    That reminds me of "black lacy under wear, see-through white shorts lady". Good times. As a 15yr old that REALLY threw my game. She played at the front too! She was always first to be picked for mixed.... maybe that's why she did it!
