Patois

A bunch of young lads were effing and jeffing in the lending library. The Library Assistants had asked them to tone the language down a bit but they carried on regardless. Eventually, they asked Seth to have a word with them.

"Look lads, you've been told: tone the language down. No swearing in the library please."

"We're not doing nowt."

"Yes you have. The ladies over there have told you three times now. Pack it in."

"Pack what in?"

"Cut out the swearing."

"You're just picking on us. I've not been fucking swearing."

We used to have to whisper - quietly.
What happened?

Gadjo Dilo said...

Pat's right: surely swearing in a whisper would be perfectly acceptible.

Youth. Bless. Why does Seth get all the good jobs???

Kevin Musgrove said...

Pat and Gadjo: swearing is reserved for staff, when we're in our Shakespearian conspiracy moods.

You too, Roberta!

Macy: virtue is its own reward.

Not sure what Jeffing is but sounds like those chaps should have been kicked out.

Standards are falling everywhere (warned???)

Moo!

Ms Cow: they were gently shown the door in the company of two large gentlemen in big boots.

The Topiary Cow said...

Ah so there are standards...just not for management then?

(just thinking too bad the large men with boots didn't show T. Aldous the door too)

Moo!
