Amusing

G is not in my good books. I have a cold and I got it from G, who was off sick from work for two days last week. I can’t be sick! My new team has just started its work and I am doing my first bit of proper volunteering tonight (as opposed to the training for it). I can’t possibly tell the man who runs it that I’m not well, as I think any condition I have might become somewhat fatal.

Anyway... I found a very amusing website and I feel the need to share it. Do you ever have those occasions when someone asks you a question and you wonder why they couldn’t just find out the answer for themselves? My neighbour asks me all sorts of things, so perhaps I should refer her here. So, nest time someone asks you one of *those* questions. Here’s your answer. So… next time someone says to you “The other day I was trying to remember when the Battle of Hastings was. Do you remember when that was?” Then here’s how you can respond. Brilliant. And somewhat passive aggressive... But very amusing.

Kahless - did you use Google for that?

Kahless said...

Honestly No, but I dont know if I am right or wrong. I thinkg I am right? Wasnt the Bayeux Tapestry from around that time and also the Doomsday Book?

Random Reflections said...

Kahless - you are entriely correct - and now if others google it they might get the right answer by coming here! The Bayeux Tapestry was of the Battle of Hastings. My knowledge of history stops about there....

Sarah - it really made me laugh when I found it and I had to pass it on!

anothercookiecrumbles - I feel it might come in use for me in many a work situation, but perhaps I should just my 'audience' carefully...
