It applies to the zipper on your riding trousers in not dissimilar circumstances. But worst of all is the zip on the waterproof oversuit. It waits patiently during those times when the rain is coming but there is plenty of warning, or a handy bus shelter. Then you can get it on without drama. No, it strikes when ...
