Like Talking To A Dummy.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and welcome to my first silly Sunday upload since returning from holiday in Afitos. I was sat in a cocktail bar with Ju' when I spotted this scene in a shop across the street. V1 gives the game away. Wink "Here, borrow my glasses."

Some of the restaurant staff in Afitos have a limited command of the English language. While sat in a restaurant waiting to see if the thunder and lightning, and inevitable rain that was forecast, would actually happen, I asked a waiter; "Do you think the storm will miss us?"
He answered: "Down to the square and turn left."

Many thanks for your response to my D-Day contribution and I wish you well for the week ahead.
All the best to all,

love your highly informative exchange with the waiter, and as regards talking to a dummy, a shopper described how she bumped into mannequin and said "Sorry", then said "Oh I thought you were a person", then realized she was still speaking to a mannequin

Reminds me of a popular TV show we had here a few years back called 'Talking to Americans"

Made me smile, John, I needed that. The waiter’s comment too about the weather. Reminds me of a Greek restaurant a few years back which had a chalk sign outside - ‘Today - Emmanex’. Intrigued to try a new dish the said Emmanex was ordered, it emerged on the table as ‘ham and eggs’ 🙂🙂
