When we were in Mexico, we met a lovely American couple from the next Condo. They were allowed to use the facilities in our hotel. We also met some Canadians and whilst I was in the pool, one of the Canadian ladies
'asked who are these people and where do they come from' Of course I was happy to oblige and answered, Oh they are the Americans who live in the CONDOM next door We all had a good laugh and they did not let me forget my slip up so easily either.

Think I've got too many to go there Bernie!

One that springs to mind was as a youth, riding to work on my Honda 500 motorcycle.

I came to a set of traffic lights and there was a young lady in a red sports car. I pulled alongside intending to blast away from the lights. I looked down at her and gave her a wink.

Unbeknown to me, one of the straps on my boots had somehow got tangled round the kickstart. I went to put a foot down as the lights were on red and couldn't. Next thing, I'm laid in the middle of the road, bike on top of me, exhaust pipe burning my legs.

Said lady was in tears laughing at me and gently drove away when the lights turned green!



One thing I always got wrong when we lived in France was 'poêle' and 'poilu' ... once means 'fried' and the other means 'hairy' ... I'll leave you to imagine some of the cock-ups there!

Moved here that was a joke When we first came here old doyada at the top of our garden had, had a stoke .A few weeks later "
Bubba "
stood at the top of our garden calling us. We rushed up thinking the old boy was on his last gasps. Bubba stood there making all these hand gestures over her head and making these noises! We could make out that she wanted us to take him in the car to the nearest biggest town(we thought doctors) Jumped in the car,up to Bubbas ,bundled the old boy into the car and off we trundled!! They sat in the back waving at all the locals like they were Royalty,which we thought a bit odd for somebody having a stroke!! We tanked it to town ,dropped the old git off at what we thought was the Doc ,s. Waited for half an hour pacing up and down ,only for him to appear and shout"
OP OP "
and brandishing a number one haircut(skinhead) Talk about being taken for a ride!!

When we were "
inbetween"
countries we stayed on a small caravan site. Our son at the time was only six. We went to communial showers where all three of us could shower together. I was washing my hair and my hubby was having a shave, we had told our son to "
lather himself up"
. Next thing we heard was ,"
oh i am so lovely and ermm"
When we asked him "
what he was doing?"
he said "
i am loving myself up"
!! We wet ourselves laughing innocence is bliss

A few years ago I worked as a phlebotomist (blood taker) in a hospital. One particular day we were really busy, a bit like a conveyor belt! One man came in to me and I took the blood test form from him. Without looking at him, I asked if it mattered which arm I took the blood from. He turned round, looked at me, and said "
I only have one arm!"
- which he did. I was so shocked I could only do the nervous laugh!! Luckily he had a sense of humour. Ever since then, I made sure I made eye contact with every patient. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

When I was a young man I like most people took my driving test and passed first time in a GPO Morris 1000 van

The next day I turned up for work and the boss said well in you go take the Van you've got a job to do in the City of London. Well I was off like a shot but the van was 10 times bigger than the ones I had learnt to drive in. As I was reversing up the yard I hit an old banger no damage done so continued. Got round the corner still reversing then BANG I had hit a set of massive wooden doors. No damage done so off we go. The chap that was with me (Dave) could not stop laughing. Well we got to Blackfriars and there was a parking space in between a Roller and a newish VW. So I said to Dave get out and see me back please mate. To which he did, I heard come on, come on bang you've hit it, and I had too the Roller of course what a hat trick to get eh
