Today whilst on my walk a woman came out and said, 'Do you have a packet for nextdoor?'
'No,' I said, 'not today.'
'Well,' she said, 'I saw yer standin last week and wondered if the packet came then. They're on holiday, you see.'
'Right,' I said. 'I was on holiday last week too. You say you saw me standing?'
'Yeah, I saw yer standin last week.'
I was confused. Really confused.
'You saw me standing?'
'Yes I saw yer standin.'
At this point she seemed to be getting a bit annoyed with me. She was looking at me in the exact same way I was looking at her.
'I was on holiday last week,' I said. 'Where did you see me standing?'
'You said you saw me standing - where was I standing?'
'Nooooo! I saw your stand in!' she yelled. 'You know, the guy who stands in for you!'
'Ah right, sorry - what did he tell you?'
