Overheard in a supermarket queue…

Posted on Thursday, September 24, 2009 in Quickie

A tall bloke in a hoodie stands holding a shopping basket beside a kid in a uniform, waiting at the supermarket till in front of me.

“Did ya learn anyting at school today kiddo?”

“Yeah me tree times tables!”  says the kid.

“Roigh… what’s tree trees then?”

“Noian” answers the kid.

“No, a small forest!!”  The tall bloke grins… “Try again – what’s tree trees?”

“A small forest!” says the kid, giggling.

“No ya big eejit, it’s noian!”

I like screwing with my kid’s heads too.

    That’s when the kid should stamp hard on the bloke’s toe and quote Eulers theorem at him, finishing of with “pwned mofo”

    pwned . .hahah . . I”ve been l33t posting. You realise this only sounds funny cos you’re Irish! (yay yay and double yay I finally got to post a comment!)

  3. Too funny! I once asked my son’s special-ed teacher why she looked so tired and down one day (thinking she might need some sympathy) and she told me she’d been trying to get the kids to pronounce their “TH”s. I just burst out laughing at her then apologised but honestly… good luck!

    Sounds like a fun Daddy you found.

    This reminds me of the book; ‘Eats, Shoots and Leaves’!

    A funny book.

  5. In London, it’s the F/TH problem. They all say ‘free frees’ here. :)

    Growup; Ha! Followed by a three month course of Ritalin for being a little bollix.

    Baino; Fair play, you got through!! I’m sorry about the jippy connection, I reckon a mouse has chewed through the cably internetty yokes in the server room. Tsk. Out with Grandad’s ferret again so.

    Susan; Ah dat’s gas :)

    Unstranger; I heard that’s an excellent read alright! Reminds me of that Victor Borge sketch.

    J; Like Jamie Oliver and his ‘fickened brof.. fantathtic!’ Funny how it works, isn’t it?
