This is a question Misunderstood

My other half rang a courier today to get a disc sent over to a client. The courier company asked what it was she was sending. "A computer disc", she said.

Half an hour later, 3 blokes in a van turned up. They looked a little disappointed to be handed a floppy disc: they were all prepared to shift a computer desk across London.

Have you been utterly misunderstood recently?

Language problems
We were on a trip to Austria in the small town of Hallstatt where they have a church with the skulls of long-dead villagers piled up in a room, since the graveyard is full. I told my 8 year old daughter about this and was intrigued; she can speak German fluently (she's grown up there) and English very well but she doesn't know the English word for everything.

Cue daughter later in the day asking when we were going to see "the boneheads."

Was quite cute really.
