View Full Version : Childhood Misunderstandings
Quote from this week at work by a 10 year old. "I am allergic to Hayfever"
My favourite " Louis Armstrong was the first man on the Moon". (did he sing What a Wonderful World?)
What misunderstandings did you or your friends have at school?:funnyhat:

I can remember telling my mum when I was 10 (many years ago) I had sung a "polo" rather than a "solo"

Once new a girl who worked with me and we sent her out to buy...

once heard of a labourers assistant who got sent for 5mtrs of umbilical cord and spent 20mins in a hardware shop before asking for help and being very embarrased.
or did I make that up!?

Anyway when I started working at the local pool one of the managers told me an old favourite was to get new employees to water the plants. Which are all plastic.

When checking the log books once of the swimmers someone had wrote in their comments for the session that they were "naked" after the session. They were highly embarrassed when they realised and suddenly weren't as tired!!!

One of our swimmers thought the local motorway was "lemon lemon" instead of M11

My little sister thought Dunblane was a street called Dumb Lane!!!!

One of the swimmers in my squad thought swimclub.co.uk was about the sport of swimming! It had us in stitches.

My grandmother was recommended WD40 by the post man for her dodgy knee.
Boots apparetnly spent some time looking for it, before deciding they didn't keep it in stock?
