Wolf whistle ok if done right.

IF a wolf whistle is delivered properly, the recipient usually appreciates it.

If, however, it is accompanied by lewd or obscene remarks, it has the opposite effect.

When I was 21, three workmates and I wolf-whistled an older woman pushing a pram past our job.

She stopped dead in her tracks, looked around, and said "Thank you boys" then continued on her way, hips swaying.

We cheered her on her way. Smiles all round, a pleasant memory.

That was more than 50 years ago, but today, it seems that a complimentary wolf-whistle is a sackable offence.

I wonder if the young lady at the centre of this, would sit straight-faced at a Chippendales hen night? I rather think not.
