Default What's the oddest thing someone has said to you this week?

Yesterday, with a totally straight face and with sincerity a woman said to me:
"Sorry to keep you waiting, I was washing my octopus."

It'll makes more sense when I tell I was at the fish counter at Morrisons supermarket.

This wasn't said directly to me, nor was it this week, but it is, undoubtedly, odd.

As you are no longer allowing us use of the "Monobook" skin, and the
"cam" one makes <tt>...</tt> material indistinguishable from the rest
of the text (and not in a monspaced font) this is a highly deleterious
move.

Sigh.

Edit: And yes - Morrisons and octopus?

I don't know if they sell it but they certainly have it on display.

(Daughter number one - aged 8 - was pissed off with me that I didn't buy any. She likes it.)

Maybe it was Wash Your Pet at Work Day. My cat would not have liked that. He's already annoyed that we accidentally shut him in the bedroom for 14 hours when we stayed with the in-laws' on Saturday night. Yes, he did pee on the bed.
