JIGABOO

Bad etiquette when doing jigsaws with others:

1 Referring to beaks and bays as innies and outies (or vice versa).
2 Getting snack crumbs in the pieces.
3 Insisting that others follow your rigorous sorting strategy.
4 Making 'jigsaw noises' such as sucking air through teeth or tutting.
5 Hiding the last piece and pretending to find it later.
6 Saying repeatedly, 'why did you buy this one?' when it was you all along.
7 Hoarding pieces of one colour.
8 Forcing pieces where they don't fit.
9 Homing in on interesting bits, shunning sea and sky.
10 Being an edge Nazi.
11 Hogging the lid with the picture on it.
12 Placing your drink too near to jigging area, risking catastrophe.
13 Being smug because you have a Jig-Roll.
14 Not separating pieces which are still joined in the box.
15 Using jigsaw clich├ęs, such as ' I've been looking for that bit for ages.'
16 Talking of the 'much harder' 2000-piecer you once did of baked-beans.
17 Leaning over to place a piece into a gap where your co-jigger is working.
18 Leaving a large dull patch hoping the cat will do it.
19 Placing corner pieces inappropriately early.
20 Raising a panic about a 'definitely missing' piece which is there all along.
