Language

Went to the Chinese takeaway the other night. It wasn't usual chap. Managed Ok, asking for number 45, etc. Then he looks straight at me and says something totally incomprehensible.

I indicate I didn't get it.
So he repeats
I still haven't got it.
He tries again
Oh, I think he's asking if I'm all ready for Christmas?
So I lie and say "Yes"
"You have problem hearing?" he continues.
I ponder telling "No" but it seems more diplomatic to answer "Sometimes"
