You bought the dog?
Posted on 25 October 2010, 15:26
On the tube just now, in a full carriage, a young man with cropped hair and dark suit was speaking to his girlfriend on his mobile. His friend, a man wearing a coat and scarf, was sitting opposite, listening in.
Man in dark suit: What? You bought the dog?
[At this point, the whole carriage tuned into the conversation.]
Man in dark suit: Oh my God! Really?
Man in dark suit: OK… OK. See you at the station.
Man wearing scarf: What? She actually bought it?
Man in dark suit: Yeah. Oh God.
Man wearing scarf: What is it?
Man in dark suit: She was talking about a cross between a chihuahua and a pug.
Man wearing scarf: Oh no! You mean, a really small dog? That’s not the kind of dog you want, is it?
Man in dark suit: I just know I’m going to step on it.
