Clangers overheard by readers of ‘The Steeple Times’ in the last week
What is Harrods?
On a 14 bus in Knightsbridge, an American couple chatted as they passed the emporium that is Harrods. “That’s quaint”, said one, before adding: “What is it?” Her companion answered: “It’s like what you’d get if you crossed Macy’s and Ikea”. The Al-Thani family would no doubt be delighted by this description.
The I.D. of Knightsbridge
At The Bunch of Grapes in Knightsbridge, reader James Johnson overheard two men in conversation over a pint. One stated: “My ex-bird: She had a fake I.D. She won’t f**king stop tweeting about it. I am really worried”. The other answered: “I wouldn’t be bothered. She’s filth. I’ve known it for years. When she gets to court, I’ll tell the jury just that. She’s going down, mark my words”. A venue that plainly attracts a fine class of customer.
Shared by Harry Harrison on Facebook: “Cycling through Clapham, right behind a guy who is hit by a car. Not nice of course. People tending to the guy, when exceptionally camp English guy announces he is going to call the police. He then questions the group [and asks]: ‘Does anyone know the number for the police?’ Even the guy who had been run over looked at him dumbfounded”.
