I was recently a guest on the Dave Pickering‘s podcast, Getting Better Acquainted. Dave and I discussed many things including story telling, dyslexia, tough times at school, depression and writing. Have a listen to the GBA Podcast.

Overheard New York Conversation #2

Ah bless New Yorkers!

Joe's New York

English lady asking a cop for directions at the Manhattan end of the Brooklyn Bridge.

English Lady – “Excuse me officer, could you please tell me where Water Street is?”

Cop – “Where?”

English Lady – “Water Street.”

Cop – “I’m sorry lady I can’t understand what you’re sayin.”

English Lady – “Water Street? W-A-T-E-R Street!”

Cop – “Listen lady, THAT SIDE BROOKLYN, THIS SIDE MANHATTAN.”

Lost in translation. If she’d simply asked for “Wadder Street” she’d have been perfectly understood.
