When I was at the cash machine today, a receipt had fallen out of my bag and a lady yelled over to me from about 50 meters away to tell me “you’ve dropped your receipt!!!”. I’m not being funny but a receipt really doesn’t qualify as something you should tell someone they’ve dropped! I was raging! I felt like she’d just told me I’d dropped my dead biscuit
Ten pound note - Yes, yell! Receipt - not so much.
it was outside my busy local tesco at lunchtime! She yelled from so far away at the top of her lungs that literally everyone stopped in their tracks! I thought she was alerting me to something very serious, so did everyone else I think
Don’t worry, I picked it up and put it in the bin!
Dead biscuit - when I was younger people used to say to each other “you dropped your dead biscuit” to try to trick them into looking down on the foor to pick something up. Never mind, I’m assuming that must have been a local joke!
She was probably a lovely lady and was most certainly doing something kind and trying to be helpful.
Have you never had that moment where you’ve left your phone on the table in a café for instance or your child has dropped their favourite cuddly toy and someone alerts you to it? That moment of relief when you think about what could have been? I just found it funny today because I thought that was about to happen when she started saying I’d dropped something but turns out it was a receipt for a packet of chewing gum 😂
It was funny in my head but obviously not so much on here!
