Halfords.... again by raistlin

Well, I thought it was quite amusing:-

I called in at my local Halfords superstore this afternoon and asked an assistant where they kept their riveters.

A look of blank incomprehension made its glacial way across the spotty youth's visage and I pressed my point thusly:-

"So you haven't got any riveters?"

"No sir" then with a certain tolerant disdain for the clearly aged dementia sufferer in front of him:-

"This is HALFORDS?" (I detest it when people terminate every statement with a rising tone interrogative)

"We have bits for cars and bikes... and we also have choonz" (I believe that's what he said) "oh, and we also sell tools"

Like I said - I thought it was amusing :)

Perhaps you should have pronounced it riviturs!!!

Apparently Halfords are one of the top companies in the country to work for?

(Note the dictionary does not recognise Halfords, it suggests Halfwords instead).

Oh how I miss hearing the Black Country dialect. They think I'm a Brummie over here.

As the self appointed president of the Acne Rosacea Sufferers Establishment, I really must protest at this sentence. I feel that it is discriminatory against the acne challenged members of society. As a person to whom half of the epithet applies, I also feel this on a personal basis.
Kindly desist from such language in the future or someone will be round to paint some acne marks on you and to see how you like being referred to as "Spotty Muldoon" or similar. :-o
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.
