Your typical small town shop has plenty of haggis and ordnance survey maps, but very few strap-ons.

9. We've all been to at least one cheesy lesbian "club" night in a pub function room out of sheer desperation.

Then realised you don't like reading, munro bagging, knitting, caravanning, or poking fires with a long stick. *Opens Tinder again*.

16. You have seriously mixed feelings about Lip Service.
