One Monday morning last May I had this conversation with my old boss.

Boss: “I was in The Swan (Arundel) on Saturday and I was talking to the landlady about business and stuff and she told me she told me a story that happened the night before. You know that they rent rooms out yeah?

Me: “I know the pub but I don’t really know it that well.”

Boss: “It’s like a sort of B&B. Anyway, some people come over to her and complain that water is dripping from the ceiling. So she goes over to check and it is, it’s dripping all over these people’s food. So they go upstairs with the key to the room and they there’s a bloke in there lying on the bed with his laptop?

Me: Was he looking at porn? Did they knock?

Boss: I don’t know, anyway they tell him that water is dripping downstairs and they think it’s coming from his room! He jumps up and says “Shit I left the bath running!” He runs to the bathroom and opens the door. With that water pours out of the bathroom and into the bedroom.”

Me: “Was the overflow blocked or something?”

Boss: “I don’t know. Anyway, all this water pissing out into the bedroom causes more drips downstairs.”

Me: “Why couldn’t he hear the bath over running.”

B: “I don’t know, anyway, that’s not the end of the story. The landlady is in the room, mopping up all the water and she notices there’s a funny smell and It turns out he was cooking a fish in the kettle.”

Me: “Cooking a fish in a kettle?”

Boss: “Yes.”

Me: What? What sort of fish?

Boss: “I don’t know.”

Me: That’s disgusting. What did he say?

Boss: “I don’t know.”

Me: “That’s really really weird. What did she do?”

Boss: “I don’t know.”

Me: “I thought you said that he was on his laptop? Surely the kettle switches off when it’s boiled? Surely a bath can’t over fill in the time it takes a kettle to boil?”

Boss: “I don’t know.”

Me: “Well then what happened?”

Boss: “I don’t know, the pub got busy and she didn’t have time to speak to me.”

Me: “Why didn’t he just get a takeaway?”

Boss: *shrugs shoulders*
