In my department, we have a lovely man who hails from the land of Beefeaters, Doctor Who and delicious accents. I thoroughly enjoy listening to him talk, especially when he does something particularly British.
The other day, we had several meetings of our team throughout the day, and he dropped these gems into my lap to giggle about later on.
“..If we don’t talk to them about it, things will tend to go a bit pear-shaped…”
Physical comedy at its greatest, ladies and gentlemen:
*starts to ask a question*
*gets words confused*
*Takes a drink of tea and looks around*
And my personal favorite:
Boss: “Has anyone heard of veritas?”
Brit: “Yes, it’s Latin for truth.”
Me:*giggling that the Brit knows Latin*
Brit: *Points to me* “She’s scoffing!”
Honestly, it made the meetings much more entertaining, and I look forward to documenting more “bloody hell’s” and references to “boiled sweets” in the future on this blog.
