Well I been wanting to learn how to spin on my spinner, but I cant seem to get it working. Well the fair is in town and some spinners are working this year there, so it seems I may get my chance.

Anyway, so I called the fair information booth and this is how the conversation went:
Me: Hello, are there any spinners presenting this year.
Lady: I dont think I understand.
Me: you know any spinners have a booth, working this year
Lady: I still dont understand what you are trying to say
Me: you know...spinning with fibers...fiber spinners
Lady: oooohh ya, thats not what I thought you were saying
Me: what you thought I said...sinners
Lady...ya..in fact I did.
Me: :lmao: ya you gotta watch out for those presentin' sinners :wink: Anyway are the fiber spinners working this year?
lady: laughs...yes they are.

I thought I would share that...it was pretty funny to me.

Anyone else have funny or absurd misunderstandings??

Amusing story. I can't think of one to add, but it happens to me fairly often.

And here's another misunderstanding, jojobean. When I read "spinning" and "fair" I saw jugglers spinning plates and it seemed for a minute like you had a very specialized special interest.
