One true and one not

This is true. I overheard this whilst standing in the queue at the Ryanair boarding gate at Luton Airport this morning.

"I don't know why Ryanair bother to sell Priority Boarding Passes. All it does is make money for the airline."


This is not true but a good story nonetheless. Thanks to Bryan for this one.

Nelson Mandela is sitting at home watching TV and drinking a beer when he hears a knock at the door. When he opens it, he is confronted by a little Chinese man, clutching a clip board and yelling,

"You Sign! You sign!"

Behind him is an enormous truck full of car exhausts. Nelson is standing there in complete amazement, when the Chinese man starts to yell louder,

"You Sign! You sign!"

Nelson says to him, "Look, you've obviously got the wrong man", and shuts the door.

The next day he hears a knock at the door again. When he opens it, the little Chinese man is back with a huge truck of brake pads. He thrusts his clipboard under Nelson's nose, yelling,

"You sign! You sign!"

Nelson is getting a bit hacked off by now, so he pushes the little Chinese man back, and says:

"Look, go away! You've got the wrong man. I don't want them!" Then he slams the door.

The following day, Nelson is sitting in his big whicker chair, resting, and late in the afternoon, he hears a knock on the door. On opening the door, there is the same little Chinese man thrusting a clipboard under his nose, shouting,

"You sign! You sign!"

Behind him are two very large trucks full of car parts. This time Nelson loses his temper completely, he picks up the little Man by his shirt front and yells at him:

"Look, I don't want these! Do you understand? You must have the wrong name! Who do you want to give these to?"

The little Chinese man looks very puzzled, consults his clipboard, and says:

(Wait for it)

"You not Nissan Main Deala?"
