Where have all the skateboards gone?


But now, with the exception of one local park, I pretty much never see anyone idling along on a skateboard. Probably all too busy on smartphones or Xboxes to worry about such old fashioned technology.

Around our office, whistling has also disappeared. I tried a jaunty tune just the other day only to be informed that these are not the 1950s and such behaviour would not be tolerated.

Don't worry I got my own back by moving on to humming. I recommend a quick burst of "The Venga Boys Are Coming"
