Kent is better than Switzerland?

According to this woman visiting her daughter in Lausanne, Kent is better than Switzerland because the sex shops open later there

Was this you?

Quote:
"You've got to remember," said my daughter grimly, as we clambered up the 1-in-2 hill from the station, "That everything shuts at 6pm in Lausanne. Everything.

"Even the sex shops."

My guess is Chatham. I took my grandma in there one day for a laugh.

A laugh . Poor granny.

My professional obligations obliged my french wife and I to spend a year in nearby Shittingbourne, on the north Coast of the "Garden of England". The waves were brown, the air was scented by a nearby paper factory and passing trucks darkened the sitting room window every 10 minutes. Our depressions were deep. Late opening shops in no way compensated for these inconveniences. Needless to say, we were ecstatic to leave.

Maybe a croupier who fancies a snack at the port ..... likes to deal a sandwich, when they bend over.

Grandma was actually highly entertained. We had a good laugh. The only person feeling uncomfy was the poor buggar who ran the shop. Grandma had never seen such things so needed a few explanations.

Excellent misunderstanding, I thought it was Chatham that was supposed to make her laugh....

Re: Kent is better than Switzerland?

Having removed myself from the hole and industrial wasteland for dumping hard case welfare cases that is East Kent, I have absolutely no idea what she means. Perhaps she was sat in Tunbridge Wells... Certainly not Shoeburyness...

East Kent can't be that bad: there are thousands of people clamouring to travel there, Calais

It's amazing what people will go through just to visit the sex shop in Chatham.
