Never go on holiday with your mother in law
Mine recently bought a house in Spain and we obligingly flew over with our two spoilt ungrateful children for a visit. We were in one of the very few Irish theme pubs on the Spanish Coast for an afternoon drink, and I was served by a man with an Irish accent wearing a black felt Guinness hat and a t shirt with 'Irish' written on it. I said 'thanks' and the MOL said 'when you're here you need to make an effort and say muchos gracias'. I protested that he spoke English and she said 'you can't possibly know that'.
A few days later she proved her point in Zara by bellowing at the shop assistant 'RETURNOS SHIRTOS GAMBAS GAMBAS GAMBAS'. Later that day I gently asked why she'd appended the words 'prawns prawns prawns' onto the end of her made-up sentence and she huffed that she was at least making an effort.

I assume he was trying to be clever by pointing out that on any contiguous piece of land,
there is only one coast, that goes all the way around it.

1) The coast of Spain is broken up by Gibraltar and Portugal
2) The Balearic Islands, The Canary Islands, Melilla, Ceuta
All have Spanish coasts, not part of the coast of mainland Spain.

No sorry I wasn't being clever
I meant to say coaster.
It's the Costa Blanca Rachelswipe.

I'm pleased I googled contiguous before laughing at you for misspelling continuous or I really would look stupid.
