- Whats the daftest thing your wife / husband /partner / GF / BF has said ?
Whilst driving down the shore road to home at dusk, my wife, on looking at the large container ships currently anchored out on the Clyde at the moment turns and asks
” Where do those boats get their electricity from for their lights ? “
” When they tie up to a bouy, a wee man runs down and plugs an extension lead into a socket on the bouy “
after a loooong pause of real thought
” Are you winding me up? ”Posted 10 years agoBoardinBobSubscriber
Not the wife but I worked with a woman that used to ask you to put things in “numedical” order.
In the same workplace we had a Cardiff office. One morning at about 9:03 am, in our Glasgow office, a girl had tried to call the Cardiff office but no one answered. She came off the phone and complained that no one was ever in that office for 9am. I reminded her about the 1 hour time difference between Glasgow and Cardiff.
“Ah right” she said…Posted 10 years agoPeregrineMember
Many many years ago, camping in Wales – ex wife looks up at the sheep on this very steep hill and asked how they manage to walk up there. Told her the sheep on these hills have 2 legs on one side which are shorter, thus allowing them to walk aroung the hills safely.Posted 10 years agoconvertSubscriber
Many years ago whilst on a trip to the recycling centre:-
I merrily binned all the glass to find my wife (then GF) at the paper recycling bin cursing under her breath and furiously going through all her old magazines tearing out random pages before throwing the remainder of the magazine in. I asked her what on earth she was up to and she pointed up to the sign over the bin – “I don’t know why but it says I can’t put in any yellow pages!”
It took me a good few minutes to pick myself off the floor and stop crying!
The best bit was that after I’d dined out on the story for a couple of year we were out at dinner and a woman that we had never met before start telling a story about this stupid friend of a friend of a friend and the yellow pages incident – the story had done a complete circle! It’s good to know she’d managed to fill all those embarrasing silences at dinner parties with her mupetness!Posted 10 years agoversesSubscriber
When the Queen Mother died it was in the news that she had formerly been Queen and that her name was Elizabeth. Given that the current Queen is Elizabeth the Second, my wife put 2 and 2 together and concluded that The Queen Mum had been Elizabeth the First.
It was only through references to the chronology of the Blackadder series’ that I could convince her that she was wrong.Posted 10 years ago
