dumplings


Short post today....but it's amused me
I popped into our local supermarket for some stuff for tea
And couldn't find what I was looking for as the store is being refurbished
Finally I stopped a manager and in a rather exasperated way
Asked him
"Can you show me where your dumplings are?"
We looked at each other for a long moment
Then both of us burst into laughter

  9. I take it he told you... I must say that package is not at all inspiring! Which reminds me I must find something quick for dinner -- don't want to miss Poirot at 8!

  11. I'm glad you stated that the manager was a 'he', otherwise Lord knows where our minds would have gone to.

    I once asked at Waitrose (Brighton) Deli counter for some Sil (Swedish marinated raw Herrings), and was given the very curt reply "We don't sell Seal here Sir".

  17. That question wins 2nd place as a come-one line right after: "So, do you come here often?"

  18. Oh you are naughty. (but I like you). Almost as bad as my son bring me round two pumpkins for Hallowe'en (it is my birthday) and coming in holding them in a sugestive position. I had the quick presence of mind to suggest he held them much lower down (there is life in the old dog yet)
