Or should i say foot in mouth disease....

This evening, in Newquay, a well spoken young man, with his girlfriend, asked me if I knew where The Fort (pub)
Now i cant confirm if he had a large hooter or not but I said "just go that way and.follow your nose"
To which his female friend burst into a fit of giggles lol

I remember when on a horticulture course at Wentworth Castle (Northern College). One lad came over and asked for a spade...Round that corner, there's a shed full of spades, take your pick was my answer.
