Today, I had to order something from a company in Devon. The lady on the phone asked for my postcode so that she could automatically find my address.....but there was an error.
'You're not showing up on my system." she said "What town are you in?"
"Oh right." A pause.
Then, "That's Edinburgh, in Yorkshire, is it?"
"Ummm, no. Scotland."
"Oh right." Another pause.
"And how are we spelling that?"
"What - Scotland?"
"I'm not stupid. I know how to spell Scotland. But is it 'o' or 'u' in Edinburgh?"
Seriously. She was lucky I don't live in Auchtermuchty....or Ecclefechan.....or Achahoish.....
