What do you do when a customer walks into your shop and asks for ‘cack’ or for ‘parri’ — or indeed for a ‘pee’? A (very wealthy) Arab walks into the Mini Market. His wife has armed him with a shopping list (and asked him to run an errand for her later). But communication can be a problem as pronunciation is not that particular customer’s forte… (Fortunately for the shop owner, his wife is there to help him. Despite his condescending attitude towards her, it seems she is twice as clever as he is…) Level: C1 — C2. Topic: Shopping, Pronunciation. Taken from the BBC TV Series ‘The Two Ronnies’.
