Imor created the topic: English is a wonderful language -

- if spoken correctly.

Bank cashier, “Can you identify yourself sir.”
Customer looking in glass partition, “Yes.”
Cashier, “Sorry, I didn’t understand.”

Customer, “The reflection in the glass is of the man I shaved this morning.”

Transaction takes place.

Any of the gang come up with something similar?

English tourist driving down country lane in Ireland and is lost. Stops by a yokel who's sitting on a gate.

"I say, old man, do you know the way to Blarney Castle?"
"Oh yes, sirr, but I wouldn't start from here"

Oy!
