HOW WOULD YOU HAVE ANSWERED?



I was in BOOTS The CHEMISTS today to buy some
 iron tablets, and the guy in front of me in the queue asked the
assistant for some condoms.  "Yes sir, what size would you like
small, medium or liar?" she said, with a wicked smile on her
face.  "Er, scratch that - just gimme a packet of TUNES!"
answered the  flustered customer.  You gotta laugh!

It's called Boots isn't it, do they sell Wellingtons?

Kid said...

Wouldn't surprise me, DSE - but probably only baby-sized ones.

I remember reading that in the navy condoms were called "wellies from the queen" so Boots does sell wellies, sort of. In my local Boots you pick up a basket at the door and just go around picking what you want - no need to ask for anything. I'm the kind of person who must have a list with me or I'd never remember anything - a few years ago I went into Boots to buy something in particular but ten minutes later I left the shop with several things I'd bought on impulse and completely forgot the thing I'd gone in for. I'd even managed to buy a bar of chocolate and I don't normally eat chocolate !

Kid said...

I do that just about every day, CJ. Go shopping, come back with several items, but none of them are what I went out for. If I write a list, I forget to take it with me half the time.

DeadSpiderEye said...

Good grief man, you two browse and then you leave with something you didn't want? I thought only women did that, we shop like men down here but then again the babies don't wear wellies either.

Kid said...

Shop like men, DSE? Men don't shop - they leave that to the wives or girlfriends. We're obviously a bunch of poofs! (Sob!)

DeadSpiderEye said...

You mean we're all gay? I suppose that explains my Black Lightning collection.

Kid said...

Nah, not necessarily - in Glasgow, the word 'poof' can just mean 'softy' - we even call women poofs. Liking Black Lightning is very gay 'though.

DeadSpiderEye said...

Phew! That's a relief, I don't fancy getting married to get outa shopping though: 'Why haven't you fixed the tap yet and you expect me to get the groceries with just £500 a week, how am going to afford enough Ryvita?'

'You're supposed to eat the Ryvita instead of the bacon sandwiches dear'.

'Shut up!'. Thump.

'Ow! Yes dear'.

Kid said...

The only two words a man needs to know for a successful marriage - "Yes dear!"

DeadSpiderEye said...

I notice you wrote, 'Successful...' not, happy. Look, I can do italics now.

Kid said...

Well, I guess a successful marriage is a happy one - and vice versa.

While we don't have a Boots around here (though their parent company also operates the Walgreens chain in the US), condoms aren't usually sold behind the counter anymore, at least at the drug stores I've been to. Still, quite cute joke here.

Kid said...

Well, of course, assuming I didn't just make it up for the purpose of a joke, Chris, I'm sure the assistant'a next line after her little jest would've been "They're on aisle nine, sir!" (Wonder which aisle the Tunes were on?)

Christopher Sobieniak said...

I guess not where beauty/hygiene products usually go. :-P

Yes, I know you were making a joke here, I just had to be the idiot for the lack of context.

Kid said...

Context...that's on aisle 12, Chris.
