little old english lady

Postby Carpe Diem » Tue, 23 Aug 2005 8:17 pm

It seems that a little old english lady was looking for some rooms in Switzerland. She asked the local village schoolmaster to help her. A place that suited her was finally found, and the lady returned to London for her luggage. She remembered then that she had not noticed a bathroom, or as they called it in England, a "water closet." She wrote to the school master. He was puzzled by the initials "W.C.", never dreaming of course that she was asking about a bathroom. He finally asked the help of the parish priest, who decided that W.C. stood for Wesleyan Church. This was the reply:


Dear Madam,
The W.C. is situated nine miles from the house in the center of a beautiful grove of trees. It is capable of holding 350 people at a time, and is open on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday each week. A large number of folks attend during the summer months, so it is suggested that you go early, although there is plenty of standing room. Some folks like to take their lunch and make a day of it, especially on Thursdays when there is organ accompaniment. The acoustics are very good and everyone can hear the slightest sound. All join in to sing. A sheet of paper is distributed at the entrance, but if there is not enough to go around, you can always borrow your neighbours'. The paper must be returned upon leaving, to be used again within a months time. It may be of interest to you to know that my daughter was married in W.C., and it was there that she met her husband. We hope you will be there in time for our bazzar to be held very soon. The proceeds will go towards the purchase of plush seats, which the folks agree are a long-felt need, as the present seats all have holes in them. My wife is rather delicate, therefore she can not attend regularly. It has been six months since the time she last went. Naturally, it pains her very much not to be able to go more often. I shall close now with the desire to accomodate you in every way possible, and I will be happy to save you a seat down front or near the door, whichever you prefer.
