Folk, usually salespeople calling at the door unannounced and unwanted...
Today, a young person arrived probably 20 something. She was polite, and wanted to ask if we'd consider having a new roof...?
I pointed at the roof and told her 'it's new'.
She said she thought it had been colour-washed and was it 'Marley'?
I struggled to keep a straight face...and replied 'it's proper tiles, Rosemaries' and that 'it'll see us out'.
Digging a metaphorically deeper hole for herself, she asked if we had any flat roofs needing repair. I told her that I wouldn't have one if she paid me.
Needless to say she didn't get any sales from us.
Told D and we both laughed for quite a while...
