    You're in a shoe shop, second in the queue for the till. Behind the shop
    assistant on the till is a pair of shoes which you have seen and which you
    must have.

    The female shopper in front of you has seen them also and is eyeing them
    with desire.

    Both of you have forgotten your purses.

    It would be totally rude to push in front of the first woman if you had no
    money to pay for the shoes.

    The shop assistant remains at the till waiting.

    Your friend is trying on another pair of shoes at the back of the shop and
    sees your dilemma.

    She prepares to throw her purse to you.

    If she does so, you can catch the purse, then walk round the other shopper
    and buy the shoes.

    At a pinch she could throw the purse ahead of the other shopper and,
    *whilst it is in flight* you could nip around the other shopper, catch the
    purse and buy the shoes.

    Always remembering that until the purse had *actually been thrown* it would
    be plain wrong to be forward of the other shopper.


    Understand now ?
