“OK Paddy, I’ll keep me mouth shut,” said Jimmy.
They go in and Paddy said in a posh voice, “Hello my good man. I’ll take 50 suits at Pound 5.00 each, 100 shirts at Pound 2.00 each, and 50 pairs of trousers at Pound 2.50 each. I’ll back up me truck ready to load them on, old chap!”
The owner of the shop said quietly, “You’re from Scotland, aren’t you?”
“Well yes,” said a surprised Paddy. “What gave it away?”
The owner replied, “This is a dry-cleaners……..”
