This thread is essential for newcomers and the elderly since I am both. No confirmation need of this as I am posting this at the end of page 13 rather than the end of the the thread. I could not seem to delete this and put it in the right place. Story of my life.

I like "the domestic authorities"

Picked it up in a model engineering book -lathes and so on - suggesting a heavy lathe crashing through floorboards of the spare bedroom "may not be popular with the domesitc authorities". Almost seemed like a job title akin to "works manager" or similar.

One of my friends is a firm proponent of the acronym "BOAB" (bird on a bike) but I am undecided on whether this should be accepted due to the slightly disrespectful tone!

I don't see the value in this acronym, it doesn't really contain any useful information. Offensive as some people find it, MAMIL encompasses a set of assumptions in a single word. BOAB really doesn't say anything at all about the rider except her gender. You are right, it does say a lot about the person who says it.
