Pwaaaaargh pfr, could well have been!!

When we go to the supermarket, I sometimes get very tired and have to sit down near the checkouts while my husband puts the goods through and pays the cashier.
I get chatting to some old biddy like myself, and the conversation often goes like this:-

"Weather's a bit nippy today isn't it?"

"That it is. Oi rek'n summer's ooover."

"Have you been away this year?"

"Nao. We hint hed noo harlday yit, thet we hint."

"I'm just sitting here while my husband does the checkout. I get tired nowadays."

"Me an' orl. Moi ligs int wot they yewst ter be."

"Ah. Here comes my husband now. He's finished at the checkout."
(jet black man in Ivorian costume, who looks about twenty, approaches, pushing trolley)

"????!!!!!!" (utter shock, horror and stunned silence from old biddy...)
It always makes me giggle.
