Let me just point out at the outset that some of these hilarious remarks are a little over the top for added effect … but not by much.
If I had a penny for every single time strangers slow down their sentences in case I don’t understand English, well let’s just say, I could quit my day job and write full time!
Apparently, the more tanned you are is in direct opposition to your ability to string coherent English sentences together 😀 😀 😀
My granduncle was constantly asked whether we still lived in trees back home to which he would aptly reply, “of course we do, we just get up there with escalators. Climbing trees is so yesterday”. Why anyone would actually believe that was a suitable question to ask a lawyer living in Europe for ten years is beyond me, but hey … each to their own I guess.
