    Totally Flunked That One

    | Oxford, UK |

    (I am working in a cafe near one of the main halls for University examinations, for which the students have to wear full robes. Every time an exam finishes, the students come out and celebrate with champagne and confetti.)

    Tourist: “Excuse me, what time is the next show?”

    Me: “I’m sorry? There’s a theatre round the corner from here. They might be able to help you.”

    Tourist: “No, the next University show. With the costumes and everything.”

    Me: “I’m afraid that’s not a performance. Those are the University’s students, and they’re finishing their exams.”

    Tourist: “So when will the next one finish? I want to bring my wife.”
