This is a question Misheard and Misunderstood

Rachelswipe says: My niece - after months of begging - was finally allowed to get a hamster, and her grandfather was utterly horrified to learn that it had been called "Nipples", a pretty good name for a pet if you ask us. Alas, it was only the more mundane "Nibbles" - what have you misheard or misunderstood, with truly hilarious consequences?

Party time
I was horribly shy as a young teenager, particularly around girls. I must have been about 14 or 15 when I was in the hairdresser's, having my hair cut by a pretty girl, and therefore speechless with shyness. At one point though she asked me if I was having a party. I was a bit surprised that she'd try this as a conversational opener, but I plucked up my courage and replied, explaining that yes, I was having a Halloween party next week, and (blush, sweat) she could come if she liked. "No", she said, "are you having a parting?" I could never go back to that barber's again.

That would have probably made the newsletter, if there was one.

Don't be silly.
The newsletter is entirely mythical.

this reminds me of my friend. a couple of days before NYE, we were all trying to decide where to go. we were standing at the bar in a big pub and she thought it might be ok.

"what are you doing on new years eve?" she asked the young barman (think the spotty pizza dude from the simpsons), meaning the pub of course.

"er, i'm working here, sorry," he replied, blushing.

So naturally
You did the honourable thing, namely apologising whilst loading your Webley, pressing it to your temple and pulling the trigger.
