Say That Again?
Sometimes you hear something and you can’t believe your ears. Most things that involve the police or fire departments are serious matters. But for whatever reason: stress, circumstances, the human condition, extreme stupidity or just plain irony; you just might tilt your head and have a hard time holding back a giggle, or a cringe or a shaking of your head. These are sentences you thought you’d never hear.
The Cardinal ‘Say That Again?‘ column forwards a few of those incidents that just make you say: ‘Can you repeat that?’ We don’t want to laugh at anyone’s misfortune, so we’ll keep the locations obscure and the names of businesses and people involved a secret. In fact, we don’t even usually know who these people are.
Terrorism notes of interest.
