Don’t confuse being posh, or rich or poor or anything else with having a bit of class. Class in this context is not about social standing, how you dress or what possessions you have, but about how a person conducts his or herself – and we could do with a bit more of it at all levels!!!
The most threadbare and humble amongst us often have it in bucketloads, so here’s to all the ‘class acts’ out there, whoever and wherever you are as you are much appreciated.
On the way home in Col’s car last night, we spotted a couple waiting to cross the road. The guy had a fur hat on, with a sort of animal tail hanging down the side, and the girl also had a furry hat on her head.
Tony, quick as a flash as usual said, “look Skunk and Nancy”!!!
(Skunk Anansie – get it?)!!! 🙂
We got a phone call tonight just as we were leaving work. Tony picked it up, and the person on the line told him she was from the Governments work records service and said their records showed that there were people at this number who had previously worked in noisy industries, and added, “is this correct?”. With a wicked smile Tony replied, “can you speak up please, I can’t hear you”!!!
The Gurus called at a convenience store tonight to buy booze. While they were waiting in the car for Beryl (who was in the shop), Tony said to Col, “have you seen that window, it’s got nothing in it but six toilet rolls, what a sh*t display”!!!
Then he saw a lady coming out of the shop and commented “I know that person, she’s a friend of St Cuthbert’s”, meaning she helped the church with fundraising, etc. He then added, “I can hardly believe it mind, as she looks very well preserved if she’s that age”…
Beryl had everyone crying with laughter in the hospital (including herself), when trying to describe what Col had done to help someone who they had brought in because they had swallowed something that almost choked them. She was describing to the nurse what had occurred, and instead of saying the Heimlich manoever, said that Col had done the Hein Gericke movement on the patient!!! Hein Gericke of course is a brand of motorcycle clothing…
