World Cup Mania – The Offside Rule Explained (For Ladies)

by Carla Ditzel, Jun 2018

This is my first non-cleaning related blog post, but as the World Cup is well underway, and England are putting in a great performance, I thought it would be a good time to share the offside rule explained (for ladies).  It’s actually quite simple when you put it like this: –

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 shopper.


See… how informative was that?  It’s coming home!

If you’re not into football, then just go shopping and buy the shoes (but don’t forget your purse).  The shops will be lovely and quiet during the games.

You’re welcome!
