[Roundup for the week of 21-28 June 2009]

“Gawd, you really have to wonder why they get taught like that. I think it’s pathetic for teachers to even think about teaching kids like that, let alone actually teach it.”

(Amanda, in London, 26 June 2009)

“That customer has a long habit of ignoring things out of hand and rushing headlong into a task. He’s a drone.”

Woman: “It says hentai. Is that Japanese for cartoon or comics?”

Friend: “Pervert. Hentai means pervert.”

Woman: “Wot?!”

(London Underground, 26 June 2009)

“Oh my bloody god … it’s exactly what I was afraid of. The worst-possible scenario has come true. I need to have my other hip broken to get out of this.”
