Let Them Eat Fruit!

Its funny when people take you literally. I was at the barbers this morning, always a joy to get my haircut, especially seeing that it is two months since I last had it cut…..My lovely Mohawk had got to the point where my boyfriend was calling it “fluffy”, never a good sign.

Anyway I digress. MOST OF THE TIME!

My barber was chatting about their new apprentice. He sent him out to pick up posh coffee from the local coffee shop. I commented on how nice it was to have someone to do “jobs” for you, with a smirk.

He then told me it wasn’t always a good idea to send a young person out without SPECIFIC instructions. A colleague had sent the apprentice out to get some fruit for his lunch. He asked him to get a banana, and apple and one more piece of fruit. The apprentice duly put on his coat and went to pick up the lunches.

He came back with a banana, an apple and……………A LEMON!
A LEMON! just the kind of fruit that you sit there and eat: a LEMON lol

Bless him, unfortunately the barber didn’t eat it…..he should have sent him back to the shop for a bottle of Gin and a bottle of tonic, to go with the lemon!

SO a word of advice….when sending someone shopping for your lunch BE SPECIFIC! or you might end up feeling SOUR!

  1. That made me laugh! It can go wrong in other ways too, such as the mechanic who’s asked to ensure a viscous coupling is properly sorted out…

    On the bright side at least he didn’t come back with a durian, which tastes brilliant but would have stunk the place out for the rest of the day.

    • I’m sure my boyfriend wouldn’t mind sorting my viscous coupling…..sounds great.
      Not heard of a Durian……..sounds bizzarre something that tastes great but smells aweful………trying not to cast a pun at this…lol

    great one – that made me laugh out loud!

  3. Am afraid I would have made him eat it himself then next time he may have slapped himself awake before entering the fruit shop, I have one just like that at the moment.
    If I had any hair I would have pulled it out by now, infact he’s so stupid he’s making everyone else stupid with him. God, who put young people on this earth lol.
    Love your writing x Keeping me laughing.

    • LOL bless em…its the lost look on their faces that make me laugh most….absolutely NO understanding why we get mad with them lol. Its not so much a case of “The lights are on but noone’s home”. Its more like “There isn’t even any electric to the house”. lol Thanks x
