A classis Tesco shopping moment...
« on: March 10, 2008, 11:13:19 pm »
well just done shopping for the evening, tesco is at its quitest but still a few odd people there, is quite entertaining!

So me and the g/f trundle round getting things, come to the checkout and waiting we see this huge guy, with a fair bit of light facial hair, obviously foreign....

So that was that, we pass through and then baging up our food

i look up and he is battling to make eye contact, with a smile on his face, he says:

(in slightly broken not very good english, think he was german or polish, i like to hope german lol)

"hello, ah you have g40?"

first off im miffed how he knew

"i noticed charger on jumper, and hat, g40"

so im like, yeah yeah!

"they good cars, very nice engine, they are prone to break lot tho?"

im like, yeah dont i just know it

"people are taking little supercharger off now, and they, they fit, fitted eaton, em-forty, forty"

M45 yeah

"anyway, nice meet you"

and he went, it was quite, i dont know the word? so strange to have someone say that, especially a foreigner!!

was funny, and wish we were in the G!

We took a trip up the Lecht the other week.  Right up 500+ meters above sea level on a mountain in the middle of a ski center...

Anyhoo Callum walks past one of the boys who seems to work there and is wearing a harness for abseiling.  

Callum: "Nice harness mate...I do abseiling for a job to...</cuts off..."

Bloke: "Here mate...that Polo your friend has over there?  Is that a G40?"

Callum: " hows the abseil </cuts off..."

Bloke: "Cool, I well like those G40's, totally cool eh?"

CAllum "</annoyed"
