A couple of tourists were talking about Trafalgar Day (21 Oct) which I wrote about here in October last year.
Partner was eavesdropping as usual. Apparently the couple was confused about the battle. Have to say I am too, as it is not my period of history but it seems that the Brits under Nelson were fighting a joint fleet of French and Spanish ships.
Anyway, Partner walked past with the dog and said "Good evening" in his best British accent.
Whereupon the tourist said: "All the foreigners who live here can speak perfect English."
Partner decided to be doubly difficult and said: "Gracias, que pases un buen noche."
Whereupon they looked very confused.
His other line is usually, "Even when they come from the valleys." (of Wales).
I do hope he isn't putting off the tourists.
