I just got back from a sailing holiday where I remembered this true tale you might be interested in.

A friend was looking for a second hand boat (a Laser) to buy, when he hit on a great idea...

At his sailing club (the Queen Mary in London) there was a large trailer park and a smaller yard where the management put trailers and boats if the owner didn't pay their membership for 12 months. The Queen Mary club is very big and at the time there were three or four Lasers in this yard that judging from their condition hadn't been sailed for at least a year.

My friend took down the numbers of these boats and asked the club secretary for the owners address so that he could make them an offer. The first chap he rang said he wasn't interested in selling as he was going to sail it himself "one of these days."

He then rang the second owner who lived about 100 miles away. A woman answered the phone and confirmed that they did still own the Laser. My friend explained that he had seen it in the defaulters yard and that as it clearly hadn't been sailed for a year - did she think her husband would be interested in selling?

"Oh no," she said, "there must be some mistake - come rain or shine my husband spends one weekend a month in London sailing..."

I bet he had some explaining to do when he got home!

A girl's name, Leone, is a feminine spelling of Leon, which often causes confusion. When her car registration arrived marked "M" for male, she sent it back to the motor-vehicle bureau with this request:

"I am an 'F.' Would you please make the correction?"

The bureau promptly sent her another form.

It read: "Please give the reason for this change."

Sharma, my cousin, was telling me about an evening service at the church we've both attended for years. She and her husband usually sat in the back, but this time they moved up front to be sure to hear the Scripture reading. They sat beside a long-time church member who cheerfully said, "Good to have ya with us! Where y'all from?"

Taken by surprise, Sharma mumbled, "The back."

I just gotta wake up faster in the morning, as well as keep my mind on where I am and what I'm supposed to be doing...

I was sitting at the kitchen table the other morning, having my first cup of coffee, mulling over my upcoming tasks at work for the day. The wife came downstairs and I kissed her casually, saying "Good Morning." Then, I said, "Take a letter, please babe."

Dumb Criminals

In Philadelphia, a teenager busted a window and was caught not through the diligence of police officers, but... because he had posted a video of the crime on YouTube.
