The Ideal Retirement job

Postby Guinness Fan » Tue May 01, 2012 2:39 pm

So, I'm sitting here in a pub in Holland & asked for the "English" menu...A 30 second glance over the offerings produced no less than 10 grammatical errors... Menus throughout Asia were much worse & much more comical... So, when I decide to "retire", I've found a new vocation; I'll travel the world & for a free meal, I'll make all the corrections to the menu... Hotels are another target rich environment - ever read that little notice behind the the door?
And your ideal retirement job?

I've been told I have a wicked imagination, so I want to write books.

^^ If you play your cards right, you can star in it too. :twisted: . Seriously though, I do have a few ideas kicking around, though more of the paranormal theme. But one story does have a gay couple in it. I just don't have enough experience to write about gay porn, romance and a good imagination, sure, but no experience. :oops:

I saw a drink vending machine in Japan one time that was pretty funny. Are you thirsty? Pick one, making you better feeling.

It goes both ways, folks... remember the poor sales of the Chevy Nova in Mexico?

No Va = doesn't go. :lol:

Remember Skoda, those eastern European cars? In Czech skoda means 'too bad' or 'what a shame'. Funny that the cars were made in Czechoslovakia.

I remember an old timey Esso station here sold them back in 1982. They had "Drive the new affordable Skoda!" painted on their window when I went in one day.

I thought what a dumb name....sounds like scrotum. :P

A gas station selling cars....that was odd too.

I can only imagine what's involved in trying to get parts for a Skoda in this hemisphere... :shock:
