Stupid things people say
What comments do people come out with which really get your goat? You know, those ones which people think are searingly “original”. For example, as a harp player, I really hate that “I took my harp to a party…” remark that I can almost guarantee someone will come out with, usually while they’re hyperventilating with mirth at their spectacularly dim-wittedness.
I was inspired to start this discussion after reading earlier about the tw@t-brained comments someone made about bagpipes. So do you endure this particular brand of dick-headed comment?
In my case, out of every few dozen comments when I appear with my harp, I sometimes get a genuinely original one (my favourite: “The Guinness rep has just arrived”).
So what ones do you really hate about your chosen instrument, and what have you heard that’s made you laugh?
