A local man is undergoing counselling today following a beverage related miscommunication between him and a friend he was visiting.
The events unfolded as the local gent was asked by his friend if he wanted a cuppa, due to the kettle being on and making boiling water type noises, which can be quite loud, as opposed to someone answering from the next room and who cant hear just how loud the kettle is, so doesn't bother raising the volume of their voice, the stage was set for all manner of sitcom type shenanigans.
Unfortunately, comedy turned to near tragedy when the local mans hot beverage making acquaintance brought in two steaming hot mugs of tea, "I answered coffee, but he didn't hear me" said the local man "I couldn't hear anything because of the kettle and the fact that I was in the kitchen" said the local mans char-wallah-esque chum.
"You know what it's like when your mouth is all geared up for one taste and it gets another taste that is so completely different from what it was expecting? It was like that, almost exactly like that in fact" said the orally confused gentleman, "It was quite a shock I can tell you, although I seemed to recover quicker than my mouth has. I'm fine with it now, what's done is done, but my mouth hasn't shut up about it ever since"
