    That is embarressing.
    We all know that toilet paper should be referred to as BOG ROLL.

    Mine was when i went in Supercigs to pay my Water on my little plastic credit card payment thing, the night before i had spilt a can of Pepsi all over it, eventually after swiping it about 6 times the woman got it to work, then i said to her "Oh im sorry about that its got Coke all over it!
    Then everyone who was in the Q and serving behind the counter just went really quiet and was giving me very odd looks i never twigged why till about 3 hours later when i realised they thought i had meant the shove it up your hooter kind of Coke

    Mine used to think Sinn Fein was a nasty man and that the world would eventually be run by "Roberts" (Robots).

    Sorry should have included quote. See below.

    This cracked me up when I read it! Perhaps she thought it was a Spanish fish dish, do you get it?

    I used to work in a supermarket. One day a man asked me, in a strong West Indian accent, if we sold "Camdens".

    "Camdens?" I asked, thinking of the London Borough of Camden. "What are they?"

    "When you're having sex, you put it on," he explained.

    "Oh, condoms!"

    Did he realise I had misheard him? Or does he still think that shop employ staff who are so ignorant that they don't know what a condom is?
    The present is a foreign country. They do things differently here.
