Doubly Impressive

| UK | Family & Kids, Hotels & Lodging

(My parents are the customers in this story. They are staying at a very charming B&B in Britain.)

Mum: “I can’t believe how well the owner looks after this place, especially considering that he’s on his own.”

Dad: “I know! Everything’s spotless. He must work terribly hard; it seems that every time I turn around I see him busy doing something.”

Mum: “Hey, there’s the owner over there. Let’s go tell him what a great job he’s doing.”

Dad: “…that’s strange. I saw him only a few minutes ago, and I could have sworn he was wearing a different shirt.”

Owner: *overhearing* “You do realize that I have a twin brother, right?”

Customer: “Will these curtains fit my window?”

Me: “What size is the window you’re buying for?”

Customer: “Living room.”

Me: “No, sorry I mean like what are the measurements for it?”

Customer: “It’s a normal front living room window.”

Me: “Every window is different. These ones you’ve picked out are 90″x90″, so they would fit a fairly large window. Do you know the size in inches, or even centimetres? We can work from there.”

Customer: “No, but it’s the same size window as everyone else on my street, so I think it’ll be the same for everywhere. Would they fit your window?”
