Imagine this: It's your birthday, and your other half presents you with her gift - a hideous, hand-knitted multi-coloured monstrosity of a pullover that even NOEL EDMONDS wouldn't be seen dead in. The sleeves are too long, the trunk too short, and it hangs off you like an unsecured straitjacket that someone's vomited over. Then she asks "Well, what do you think of it?" while fixing you with that puppy-eyed look of expectation, relying on you to validate her knitting 'skills'. Not since she asked you "Does my bum look big in this?" have you found yourself in such an awkward spot. Do you give her an honest assessment of her handiwork, or do you lie through your teeth to spare her feelings and ensure your own peace and quiet?
