Sad reflection on today's educational standards. Bit like the supermarkets where the "giant multi-buy" works out more expensive than the small individual packs. Crazy world!Another little real life anecdote from me - not a joke as such - but it made me laugh . . .
Yesterday, at the ar$e end of the day, Mrs. timsk and I went into a Warren's Bakery just before it was about to close to get a couple of Cornish pasties to take home for our evening meal. As we walked in, the smiley sales assistant offered us all sorts of cakes and sweet pastries at vastly reduced prices, but no reduction on the last two large pasties costing £3.89p each - which was all we wanted. With a big cheesy grin on my ugly mug and a £5.00 note in my hand, I asked: "what about the two remaining Cornish pasties - can we have them for a fiver?" "No" came the reply, instantly wiping the smile from my face. Then, after a pensive moment, she said: "I tell you what - how about I let you have them for £2.00 each?" So I handed over my fiver and, in return, she duly gave me the two pasties and £1.00 in change! "Have a nice day" she said. "Oh I will" I replied, "in fact - you've just made it!" True story.
