Stupid Tourists

We just had an American tourist in the shop asking if our knitting patterns were in ENGLISH. The mind boggles. I told Heather she should have responded in made-up funny-talk. To paraphrase Eleanor Lavish, they really should make travellers pass a test at the airport.

Uh, what had she been listening to since she left the airport? Peter once had a tourist in the Botanical Gardens Shop asking if the books on Aus native plants were available in German! :)
