Does anyone else struggle sometimes to do ‘appropriate’ greetings? You know, as the social skills textbook instructs, especially when hugely distracted by something else? Usually I can manage it, but this morning I may have managed to diversify!
I happened to need to pop to the Scout shop this morning to buy some badges for my Beavers. After I got out of my car I realised that there was what looked like a dead hedgehog by the side of the car park. So I had to stop for a few minutes to investigate whether a) it was actually a hedgehog, and b) it was actually dead. So after establishing those facts, I walked into the shop and rather than doing the textbook greeting, I just said “there’s a dead hedgehog in the car park!” Luckily they were fine with it, they even asked what group scarf it was wearing BUT this really isn’t the appropriate way for me to greet people who I haven’t seen for a few months!!
“there’s a dead hedgehog in the car park!”
Sounds like a crude euphemism for some painful condition of the rear end.
It wasn’t! There genuinely was a dead hedgehog in the car park!
i'll see if i can slip that into a conversation at work tomorrow.
hey that party was really rough, now I feel like “there’s a dead hedgehog in the car park!"
You’ll have to let us know what response you get
hey yall, ....i wanna laugh, but dont understand the joke ??
Um, part 1. Is that I did a slightly socially inappropriate greeting and rather than saying 'Hi, how are you?' to the people in the scout shop, I instead told them that there was a dead hedgehog in the car park, because there was an actual dead hedgehog in the car park. Part 2. The phase 'there's a dead hedgehog in the/their car park' has been 'developed' by others posting on this thread to have other meanings such as being code for something such as piles or, someone having had too many ***s in their bottom!
