How To Win Friends And Influence People

We'd taken one of the Warriors out for a run to check some mechanics. We'd ended up at a CD selling shack. For once I decided I didn't want anything and me and my mate left the 'shop'. One of the other lads was still looking.

We were stood outside at a kiosk selling cans of drink. We kept casting glances back inside.

"Beautiful lady," the bloke at the kiosk says.

The woman in the CD shop was indeed quite beautiful in the Balkans kind of way that lasts until they reach their thirtieth birthday when they become fat, ugly and wear black shawls.

We decided to use some of the vocabulary that the interpreters had taught us since we'd been out there.

Me: "Ya, Dobra Cici*" - (Yes, good tits)

My Mate: "Ya, Dobra Dupe" (Yes, good arse)

Kiosk Bloke: "That's my sister."

Whoops.

* - For anyone who does speak Serbo-Croat - you will have to excuse the spelling.

You pair of buffoons!

That's very funny. Clearly there is a good reason why more English people aren't bilingual...

:D genius! We started calling moments like that Koszaks (OK, spelling right off), after the goalie who let in a ball from the other goalie the other day.

OK. Yeah. That makes no sense. Sorry. I'll try again later...

I'm impressed he even pointed that out to two men carrying guns, if it was me I'd probably just have agreed with you...

Katy - the reason being that there wouldn't be as many humourous stories floating about.

Pat - very true.

Tideliar - I'll be googling Koszaks in a mo.

Anon - this was a long time ago - well before music downloads. There's probably little kiosks there now where you can get illegal downloads!

Mr A - he'd deployed the ultimate weapons of making us feel very uncomfortable.
