Years ago, the mother of his child moved up north of Western Australia. She told him she found Jesus and she had no time for people. I said huh?
Another guy said he got a job as a truck driver. Problem was, he had a condition which prevented him from lifting anything.
'So, you got the job?' I asked.
'yeah' he said. 'I start next week.'
He was rubbing his hands together in glee.
I said 'What will you be delivering?" He said 'Huh? I said 'so, you cannot lift anything, so you think the you are going to drive a truck all around town, just to advertise the company's name"?
Reding a british newspaper last week, I read an article about a young couple with children, who were in the throes of renovating their home.
They moved out for obvious reasons- renting a place nearby.
Lo and behold! A family moves into their house, changes the locks and simply squatted!
When the owners reported them to the Police, they were told they could not help them because it was a civil matter. They said 'Huh?'
Many years ago, I went to a local dentist, as I had a problem with my upper wisdom tooth.
After examining me, he said the tooth had to come out. He gave me an injection and within a few seconds he started to pull. He pulled, he stood, he pulled, he sat. He pulled, he swore. By now my upper lip was almost married to my ear!
Eventually the tooth came out with impacted roots. After padding the hole in my gum with cotton wool, he said,'Ok,
should you lose a lot of blood tonight, just get yourself off to hospital' I mumbled 'Huh?"
As an early morning cleaner, many years ago, I once arrived at the building I was cleaning, to be confronted by 2 policemen.
The alarm was clearly ringing. After identifying myself, one policeman went around to the back of the building, which left me with the other policeman, whose head just about reached my shoulders. I am 5foot 4 inches.
He then takes out his gun, stands behind me and says' Okay, unlock the door:
I said; 'Huh?'
A famous british t.v actress recently wrote a book. My niece manages the bookstore here in Perth, where the author came to do a book signing.
My niece had opened the bookshop at 8am. that morning. It was now 7pm and my niece queued up to have the book signed for her sister. It was a long queue.
At one point, the author searches the queue and points to my niece saying' Do you work in this bookstore"? 'yes" came the reply.
'Well, you can go to the back of the queue!"
'Huh'? said my niece.
When my niece finally got to the author, the author excused herself to go out for a smoke.
When I was a teenager, my Mum got me a part time job at a bakery where she worked. One of my tasks was to take the takings of the shop and deposit it in the bank,
One evening, I was with another employee and I counted out the pounds, shillings and pence in front of her. I went to another room, to get the little paper money bags and when I came back, I noticed there were several pounds missing. I re-counted the entire amount in front of her and I went 'Huh?'Where's the money?
With that she howled like a banshee, and confessed her theft.
A few years ago, out I was, cleaning again, this time with my husband. It was a 2 storey office, used by accountants.
Anyway, we did the usual clean, and I went upstairs to hoover their board room. It was a massive room with a very long table and chairs.I heard my husband clearly call my name, so I turned off the hoover, went downstairs and said, 'yes, what do want"' He goes;
'What do you mean,what do I want'?
I said 'You just called me!" He said
'No, I did not!' I said 'huh?"Spooky!
