    ... The other week. I meant to watch it due to being charged for an overweight suitcase and me a strip of wind. Just really wanted to know what the conclusion was.

    This subject is mentioned in the last Ricky Gervais DVD. Talking of fatties, I saw woman who was as big as the mom in Gilbert Grape the other day in the supermarket!

    I have often heard the phrase some people are just big boned.

    I think that means they have lots of layers of fat around their normal sized bones to make them bigger.

    Didnt see the programme Elmer, but i agree. It peeves me at 10.5 stone to get charged for TWO KILOs excess....two kilos fer chrissakes, when most of the people in the queue were probably 10 to 15 kilos heavier than me !!!!

    Thats Easyjet for you....i've flown other airlines with much more overweight luggage and never got charged. (9 kilos ..nearly 50% overweight...on Iberia...they never batted an eyelid.....mind, i didnt get my luggage for 12 days the useless barstewards ;):biggrin::biggrin:)
