    following on from a TTC thread

    1. Hardly anyone has a computer - in fact in Emmerdale even if you're a journalist you use the computer in the cafe to do your work

    2. Most people work in the same street/village/square where they live

    3. No one watches soaps :wink:

    any more?

    No one has breakfast at home

    or a washing machine

    They are all rich enough to eat in the cafe then spend all night in the pub :lol:

    :rotfl:

    Also most of the houses must have loads more bedrooms than average by the number of people who live there (think about Gails house in Corrie - it must be 4 bedroomed to each have a room- but looks a lot smaller :think: )

    Whenever someone says "thats not going to happen" you know it will!

    You can tell if someone is evil because they hug someone and smirk.

    Anyone with a motorbike is baaaaaaaaad

    No-one uses the toilet.

    lol,

    the bradley/max/stacey thing

    whispering to each other and giving each other those looks when other people are in the room.
    course you would notice!!


    erm... everyone knows everyone
    that doesnt happen on normal streets, not mine anyway!

    everyone works on the same street they live on.

    * Everyone has more-or-less perfect make-up and hair most of the time.

    * One night stands ALWAYS lead to pregnancy.

    * No one ever rings "just for a chat".

    Whenever you see a full moon, a train or a tram - you know something dramatic is about to happen

    People who have just lost their jobs always have money to go to the pub or down the local cafe!!... :think:

    No one ever swears

    Theres always a teenage pregnancy

    Theres only ever one indian family (Im still yet to see an oriental family)

    Not one woman is portrayed well (not that i can think of anyway)

    No one works in the city and if they do they move to work closer to home.
