Funny observations in Australia from an American

OK confession time- Here is my American, Pony Club brain, making a totally wrong assumption for something that I saw the other day. … Get ready to laugh a bit-

If anyone is familiar with the United States Pony Club & probably Pony Clubs in general around the World, the encouragement to label everything with your last name has been embedded into you.  Am I Right?

Well, the other day I used a wheelbarrow from a stable in Australia.  The person’s wheelbarrow I borrowed, was not named Sherlock, but I just assumed somehow, they acquired the wheelbarrow from someone  named Sherlock! This person who I borrowed the wheelbarrow had worked on the race track and in my American brain, I just figured someone’s stuff got taken or mixed up.

I mean what would you think if you saw this wheelbarrow?  (Australians are excluded from this question.)

 

WRONG!  Here’s your laugh for the day- no one’s last name is Sherlock who has a black wheelbarrow!  It’s a national company who’s wheelbarrows all look like this!  You can go to the local hardware store, in Australia, and there are at least 1/2 a dozen of them waiting for you to take them home with you!  🙂

Have a great day and I hope I was able to make you laugh!
