At noon today I popped into the next small town library, never been in before and not sure whether to return again!
The lady behind the desk literally did not understand a word I said to her, I had to repeat everything twice. You'd have thought I was talking in French judging by the expression on her face...LOL.
I would ask a question and she'd just completely misunderstand me! And believe me these were not complicated questions:
"What do I need to do to join the library"? Blank face
"Do I have to live in this county"? Blank face
"Do you have books on CD"? Blanker face
"Is there a fee"? Blank....so I revised to "Is it FREE"?!!
"Are you from Mars" ......just kidding, but I was sorely tempted!
Finally I did manage to get the answers I needed and as I turned to leave she asked me where I was from....lol! I was so so tempted to say where I live now, just up the road, but I behaved as she seemed nice and said England, but I live here.
Her response "OH I DO LOVE THE ENGLISH ACCENT"!!!!!!!!
I was so tempted to respond with...."well you bloody well can't understand it though huh"!
