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?

When is a hot dog not a hot dog?
I was recently at a football match and decided to risk the half-time culinary experience for once. I opted for the hot dog and asked the disinterested teenager behind the counter for said sausage-based snack.

"Want anything with it?" she asked.

"No, thanks." I replied (I've had hot dogs with onions and ketchup before and the onions are usually slimy and the ketchup just ends up all down your front, so I didn't want to chance it).

My dog was handed to me in one of those paper bags that has a foil inner, to keep the food warm. So I paid, picked my bag up off the counter and returned to my seat.

I sat down, opened my bag, delved my hand in and pulled out my snack. Imagine my surprise when all that I found in my bag was a single, solitary, naked sausage.

I actually tipped my bag upside down and tapped the bottom, somehow expecting a magic bread roll to drop out. But no, when I'd said I wanted nothing with it, that is precisely what I got. That'll teach me to assume the roll is an intrinsic part of a hot dog.
