To wonder why a man in the office next to mine asked whether I've ever got a train to work?

I told him I haven't, but was just shocked that he would think I have. I work in an office, why does he assume that I can fix trains? confused

Boom boom.

JeReviens Mon 23-Oct-17 21:58:16

What? Fix what trains?

RJnomore1 Mon 23-Oct-17 21:59:14

Ohhhh that's older than me! 😂

JeReviens Mon 23-Oct-17 21:59:48

Oh I see. It's a joke.

Bugger me bandy. Unfunniest joke ever.

I don’t get it...what am I missing?

Bluntness100 Mon 23-Oct-17 22:01:00

Oh right, I had to think about that,,,

A train to work, as in have you ever repaired a train, made a faulty one operational.

MaidOfStars Mon 23-Oct-17 22:02:25

Did you get the train to work?
=
Did you commute to this workplace by train?
Or
Did you fix the train?

SciFiFan2015 Mon 23-Oct-17 22:05:26

Ok. I think I get it. Terrible, terrible play on words complicated by the fact I get the train to work! smile

Not even funny

Tell us another, Jim Davidson.

treaclesoda Mon 23-Oct-17 22:36:45

I quite like it. blush I like a play on words.

More Tommy Cooper than Jim Davidson I reckon smile

Speaking of which, did anyone see the thing on Twitter recently where someone has posted excerpts from Jim Davidson's autobiography? It was really disturbing and quite upsetting.

BriechonCheese Mon 23-Oct-17 22:37:31

Haha treacle I was just trying to pluck a shit, old comedian from the back of my head.

There are a lot of unnecessarily nasty, angry and bitchy people on here aren’t there? I posted an inoffensive, jokey comment - and look at some of the responses. I’m not bothered about me, and the reaction, but seriously, I think some of you need to look at your lives! smile

It took me an embarrassing amount of time to get that even with the explanationthlgrin

Crap joke but only because I’m a bit rubbish and had to read it a few times before I got it.
Personally, I am more excited that the witches are back!

Now look here, OP!

Your opening post was extremely silly!

Which means I liked it.

SaskiaRembrandtWasFramed Tue 24-Oct-17 18:48:15

I thought it was quite funny.

Mimsy123 Tue 24-Oct-17 18:49:00

Thanks smile I mean, seriously, we’ve probably all got enough to worry about but some of the responses to this had me shaking my head. I love it when people say something is crap, but offer nothing in response. Go on then, you lot who said it’s ‘crap’ etc. Tell us a joke.

InsomniacAnonymous Tue 24-Oct-17 18:51:49

I don't understand why anyone had difficulty understanding the joke.

I love shit jokes. Like the one about the magic tractor who drove down the road and turned into a field.
