RancidPunx Posted December 2, 2021 Share Posted December 2, 2021 (edited) A few years back I occasionally had to drive this 50 year old women for about 2 ours a day.. To/from work type thing. She is generally fine. Chatty but fine.. This conversation takes place in about May In Ireland. Me : It was a nice day Saturday Her : Yeah it was 43 degrees Me : What? Are you sure it was that warm ? I don’t think it was . Her : Yeah it was 43 degrees on Saturday. It was showing up on the electronic sign/clock outside the chemist … Me : Oh right, still 43 degrees would have been fierce warm. People would have been too warm to work , everybody would have gotten sunburnt etc.. Besides it would have been all over the news and media …. Her : (Insisting) : No, No. it was definitely 43 degrees on Saturday, it was up on the sign and thats never wrong… This was in the era before smart phones unfortunately, but for about 40 minutes i could not get it across to her that it was in no way even close to being that warm. She wouldn’t back down or entertain the idea that the fucking sign might have been wrong !!! Wiki tells me that hottest day ever recorded in Ireland was 33.3 degrees in 1887 btw… In reality it was about 18-20 degrees that day. Fuck me, i dont think i ever been so stressed getting out of a car… Edited December 2, 2021 by RancidPunx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
