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.

  1. 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! 🙂

  2. Nah, mate, they’re in strine. “Cast on 50 stitches or thereabouts on whatever needles you can get at the local general store with some wool, mate, then knit till ya billy boils and increase a bit, knit more and cast off and bobs your uncle”

  3. that’s pretty funny. and scary.

    mark and i are headed to ‘stray-ya tomorrow. hooray! i would like to think that we would pass the traveler’s test at the airport with flying colours. :o)
