I'm Only Doing My Job!


Five blokes in an Audi Quattro arrived at the ferry checkpoint in Harwich, Essex.

Tracey, in her brand new uniform, stops them and tells them:
"I can't let you on the ferry. It is illegal to have 5 people in a Quattro.
Quattro means four.
One of you will have to get out and stay behind."

"Quattro is just the name of the car," the driver replies disbelievingly.
"Look at the papers: this car is designed to carry five persons."

"You cannot pull that one on me. This is Tracey you're talking to here," she replies with a smile. "Quattro means four.
You have five people in your car and you are therefore breaking the law.
So I can't let you onto the ferry. It's more than my job's worth to let you all on."

The driver is now very cross and replies angrily,
"I've had enough of you. Call your supervisor over. I want to speak to someone with more intelligence!"

"Sorry," responds Tracey, "but Sharon is busy dealing with the two blokes in the Fiat Uno".

Re: I'm Only Doing My Job!

And I thought when I moved to Switzerland I'd leave the 'Essex girl' jokes behind me...

Re: I'm Only Doing My Job!

I had problems when I arrived in a 2CV. I could only fit one horse in the back seat. And apparently ponies don't count. There was that counting horse once, but I'm not convinced that was entirely above board.

Oh the names are spot on... I went to school with Tracey, Sharon, Scott, Charlene etc...

On a more positive note, I also went to the same school that Damon Albarn (of Blur fame) attended.

Re: I'm Only Doing My Job!

When I received this joke from a friend (male!), it was entitled "Essex Girls"! Not wishing to offend any members from Essex, I modified the title, but you clever people spotted the connection. Well done Essex Girls!

PS I am originally from Middlesex, which hasn't existed for years, but actually bordered on Essex way back when!

When I first heard this joke it was Italian border guards on the Swiss/Italian border.
