LIFE IN GENERAL

Rural England

I don't know how the Royal Mail manages to deliver mail to people in some areas. On my travels around England I have seen many strange things, but one recurring phenomenon is that of village names.

With so many villages carrying the same name, and often within the SAME postal district within a county, I don't envy the guys and gals in postal their task.

So for clarity, and for all postal workers and recipients of Her Majesty's Royal Mail, here is a list of villages likely to cause problems with mail addressed to them.

Hidden Dip
Blind Crest
Narrow Bridge
Weak Bridge

My reckoning is that something very strange is happening in the villages called Hidden Dip. Every time I pass through those villages, my mobile phone signal grows very weak, and sometimes it cuts out altogether.

As a stalwart UK citizen, I have complained to the Ministry of Defence, but all they will say is that they will 'Look into the matter'

STRANGE TIMES INDEED!

How Come When ....

'It's Friday afternoon,
it's a gorgeous day outside,
you are going to a barbie or on a date when you leave work,
the boss asks to to photocopy a report,
and the copier breaks down'

Answer ....

All modern electronic office equipment has a special
chip built into its main processor. The chip
is called a Critical Failure Chip. It works by
detecting your need to get something done
in a hurry. When it detects that need - it
generates a random error in the equipment.

The greater your need, the more serious
the error!

IT'S TRUE!
