Reminds me of a time in Greece. Sat adjacent to this couple in a restaurant who I think were from Manchester way on. For some reason they wanted mince and potatos but the waiter didnt have a clue what they were on about when they were saying `mince and tatties`. Cue lots of shoulder shrugging from the greek and the couple (quite loudly) saying to each other "whats wrong with him, is he thick or something" This went on for ages.
waiter - i dont understand
bloke - mince yes mince ok
waiter - yes mince i understand
bloke - and tatties
waiter - *confused / shrugs shoulders
bloke - t.....a.....t.....t....i. ...e.....s
waiter - as above
bloke - red faced grabs a menu and conducts pointyat
waiter - ahhh potatos
bloke - aye tatties
(seemed funnier at the time)
