Overheard in Various Places

Overheard in the Caravan:

Hay: "How long have we lived in the caravan?"

Chairman: "4 or 5 years."

Hay: "How many times have you cleaned the shower in that time?"

Chairman: "Zero - but there's a very good reason for that. Too much cleaning of showers in a caravan can lead to the watertight integrity being compromised. Men, as we experts call them (or scabrous wastes of time, as women refer to them), prefer watertight showers to clean showers in caravans."

Overheard in Tetbury:

A lady is exiting a ladies' clothing emporium and speaking to her husband.

Lady: "The clothes were for someone 2st lighter."

Husband: "And 20 years younger."

Overheard on the Road Back from Tetbury:

The Chairman is reading a copy of Tetbury Life.

Chairman: "Look at this place that's for sale - £1.75m. Looks like a monastery"

Hay: "That;s the Poor Clare's convent in Woodchester. Who exactly are the Poor Clares?"

Chairman: "A dwindling order of nuns who amass large property portfolios and will be eating cream eclairs for the rest of their lives."
