When in Rome, talk like the Romans...X 2!

Many years ago, when I was looking for a "cooler" in a Kentucky department store I asked a clerk where they where.......he was stumped... so he sent us to a gal at the service counter.... she didn't know what I was talking about either... so she summed the store manager.
The manager said, "they don't ship/sell coolers east of the Mississippi".
After I explained to that 3rd hillbilly that I needed an "insulated box to put ice, food and beer in".... he said, "Oh, I thought you where looking for COORS BEER".

It turned out that I didn't want a "cooler".... what I wanted was an "ice chest"!

I bought an "ice chest" and used it as a "cooler" until I repaired my malfunctioning refrigerator.

BTW, I also bought 2 quarts of "engin all" from the same store!

TRUE story!

Sorry but I do have to ask:
I assume you found them out back and I really have to know; Were they one or two holers?

How does what you and your friends do in a private setting justify what you say in a public forum? :P. I always chuckle when people make that statement to justify a joke they want to make. If they really believe it isn't offensive they wouldn't feel the need to point that out,would they?

Food for thought, or regurgitation. :P

I really need emoticons on this iPad app.

The answer to your problem...
Canadian Restroom Locator :: YummyMummyClub.ca

Obviously someone there knows what a restroom is. (And where they are)
