And Then There Was Filing Up….

I pulled into the filling station to top up the tank. Into the shop to pay. Although the pumps were busy, I was the lone customer inside.

The till person must’ve been peeping out the window ‘couse as I approached the till he enquired, “Twenty pounds?” and just to confirm I was indeed Mr. Twenty pounds, continued, “Pump fourteen?”

“Yup, that’s me. Unless there’s a cheaper pump out there?”
”Ha, ha. No, you’re the cheapest right now.”
”Wow! The cheapest? Can I take two please?”

Quote; The Times.

A young girl who was blown out to sea on a set of inflatable teeth was rescued by a man on an inflatable lobster. A coastguard spokesman commented, "This sort of thing is all too common".
