oh they didn’t tell the other people they were giving up their own tickets, probably just said something came up so they couldn’t make it.
We used to have a pay phone in one of my schools. Someone thought to make a hole in a coin and tie some fishing string to it. It was possible to pull the coin back up when you’d called. A few months later someone from the phone company came to see how there was never any money in the pay phone. Unfortunately a student, seeing a strange person by the phone, yelled, hey! use this one! and handed him the coin. They found a way to fix it so the money couldn’t be pulled back up. :(
um, the kids?
probably the point.

That’s my cat for you!
plus it’s so often that we non-native English speakers hear a word pronounced and think wow! that’s not how I thought it would sound like. May have seen the word countless times and know perfectly well what it means.
Earl is right – not necessarily about the combination but it’s really disrespectful to gag at something another person likes. Think your yuck if you like but don’t say it out loud.
(Singed sheep head anyone? yum :D )
exactly! Everybody in Iceland eats this and calls it cocktail sauce. Imagine my surprise when I got shrimp in cocktail sauce in the States. Are you by any chance Icelandic?
that’s probably changing now though. Used to be mostly manuals here in Iceland and until very recently you had to learn to drive manual. But it’s getting harder finding new cars that come with manual transmission.
