Stupid and random but I got an e-mail from my auntie on her work computer. The bit at the bottom says;

"...providing services for local people managed by local people"

Heh

The other day I saw a job notice on a shop window, and went in to ask about it. After she had asked me a few questions, the owner guy said to me "Are you local?" I nearly wet myself. I realise it's not the funniest of things to happen but to me it was memorable lol 8)

*ressurrects thread*

*cannot spell*

The guy at KFC at Alton Towers kept calling out "CAN YOU BWING ME A ZINGER MEAL NOW PWLEASTHE" exactly like Dean says "CAN YOU PLAY IT FOR ME NOW PWLEASTHE" in TLOGABY. I tried to capture it on film but alas, I failed...

Also, a few weeks back my parents bought some cheese that declared on the label "Made in Reece's creamery". I kid thee not... ooh, the images.

Not so much an observation but my Dad trying to fit in with me. We were going past some new apartment block place in teh car and he said something about "Oh yes they won't be local people" and looked at me as if to say "EMMA! EMMA! Look what I did!"

I can't believe none of the ladies have commented on that yet :lol:

I was in Windsor today on a trip thing and went into this cafe. Cuz it was French it said "mesdames" and "meisseurs" on the toilet things and all I could think was "Ladies and gentlemen, mesdames et meisseurs, damen und herren" lol.

On my horrendous search for the flats I was supposed to be viewing yesterday I walked along Hadfield Road. I wonder if I kept walking I would eventually come to Hadfield!?

I saw the airport taxi thing called "Hadfield Travel" the other day, and there is a road near me called Hadfield road as well but it's not very nice haha.

*update*

Oh deary, Weakest Link has provided me with so much the past few days!! Wednesday there was a guy on that looked like the bald guy in the cinema with Henry and Ally. Then today one of the questions was something like "the latin 'Aqua vitae' means water of what?" I was sat shouting "LIFE LIFE LIFE!!" :lol:

On way home today, I was in a long queue of slow moving traffic.You know what was at the front? An old dear in one of those invalid scooter/buggy things! All we needed was the fire engine and we were there!
