Then I got a job working for a lovely Scotsman. DO NOT GO THERE. I still have days when I have absolutely no bloody idea what he has said to me.

I am meandering. Back to the present. Today a lovely lady came to my office. In the course of our business ( sounds more impressive than it was) I had to give her a phone number.......So it went something like this:
Me "number number number 555"
She replies back "number number number 345."
"No," says I "it is triple 5."
"Yes," she says "3,4,5."
" No, not 3,4,5," says me "it is 555."
" Yes!" she says "3,4,5!!!?"
Both of us are terribly confused.
I say let me see what you have written. She had it absolutely right . Clearly tree fuff five is triple five.
