Problems are for solving - or shelving if you think there's a chance they might just vanish of their own accord - but sometimes your personal shelving isn't strong enough and they all come tumbling in on you at the same time.

Teenager, a word which seems to strike terror into many otherwise well adjusted adults who forget they survived through the same turbulent phase without 'burning the house down', 'getting or making some totally unsuitable person pregnant', or 'getting in trouble with the law', or 'killing yourself on that damned motorcycle'.

"Operator off duty" said the sign on the bulldozer as it rumbled past with a panicked teenager at the wheel.
