I put my awning up this weekend and for some reason the PVC looked a little skewed. Anyway I was told by Helen that I had my awning gable end poles the wrong way round. Very defensively I stated no. "It says in the instructions that the short pole is on the left. No said Helen the shorter pole corresponds to the narrower bed.
The exact opposite of a "Light Bulb Moment" then occurred a very pronounced "D'------oh. I then apologised to Terry who I swore was wrong on this point and I now apologise to others who I have missdirected. What occurs on 6s or Destinys where the awning doesn't extend to the end of the bed???
I was still quite insistent in my own mind that I had read instructions for the awning to have the shorter pole on the left. Read the instructions and no it was quite plain the longer side goes to the left.
At that point I realised I had transposed L for Longer in my head for the Left for "Bit LEFT out" that I had used for years on earplugs. I always bit a piece from one of a new set of earplugs to make sure that I didn't swap ears with the plugs.
