This is a question Stories of unsurpassed brilliance

This "Week" The suggestion comes from Kroney who muses

"Whilst I was passing through Miami airport at the tender age of 21, I fancied a beer. "ID" said the charming Southerner behind the desk, so I got out my passport and showed it to her.

"You have to be 21," she said. Now this confused me slightly as I had been 21 for several months by this point and my date of birth was staring her in my face.

"I am 21," I replied helpfully "it says so there, look"

"You have to be 21", she said getting angry.

Cut a long story short, I argued, the manager came out, I argued with him before I finally realised that they weren't looking at the date of birth at all. They were looking at the date of *issue*

That would have made me an annoyingly precocious four year old. What examples of unsurpassed mental genius have you experienced?"""""""

In Malta, cooking and heating it generally by Gas. You can pick up bottles at specific points and some entrepreneurial grocer shops. So, I need gas and visit a local shop that I know normally has a few bottles. The conversation.

Me ; Do you have any Gas bottles please?
Shop: No. Try tomorrow, eh.
Me: Are you having a delivery tomorrow?
Shop: No
Me: So will you have any in tomorrow?
Shop: No
Me: So why should I come tomorrow?
Shop: Just try eh...

Since this incident, I have spontaneous combusted due to 'idiot' frustration.

Not sure whether you misunderstand Malta or I do.
I was under the impression that a kind laissez-faire attitude was abundant so there would be no delivery schedule?

When I went to Malta I thought it might be like Greece and you had to put your shitty bog roll in the bin.
Apparently you do not. Oops.
