The things you hear...

We were out with the kids in Lower Hutt today, we had a pram each and were trying not to take up too much of the footpath. The sun was shining, and it was a good day.

At one point, we found ourselves in the middle of a group of teenagers were walking in the same direction. They weren't causing trouble, they were quite happy and flirty and enjoying the day, as we were.

For whatever reason, it was decided that they needed to go to the supermarket so one of the chaps says to one of the girls, “could you carry my cricket bat?” She says, “No, why?” He replied, “I don’t want to go into a supermarket carrying a cricket bat, they might think I want to cause trouble.”

She looked at him incredulously and said, “Dude, it’s a cricket bat and you're Indian. It’s all good.”
