You can even buy a t-shirt politely telling anyone who cares to read it that you are somewhat tired of being approached by all and sundry offering you transport, tailoring or touch. I preferred smiling and saying “No thank you”, although by the end of our stay it was definitely wearing a bit thin.

I was momentarily shocked when I saw a head in the boot of a car, relieved to find it was actually a statue.

And lastly, I love the offer of daddy daycare at a local drinking establishment, obviously for spouses sick of shopping.
