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!
