Long Memory.


Sitting in my local last night, I was accosted by an elderly Chinese gentleman on holiday over here in the UK from Hong Kong.
It transpired that he is an ex Dhobey-wallah, and having ascertained that I had access to the "Lurld Lide Lebb" (as he put it), and in particular - RR, he scribbled furiously on the back of a soggy beer-mat whilst chuntering to himself in Cantonese. He handed me the beer-mat and stomped out of the pub, shouting, "You tell!.....You tell!.....me no happy blunny!".

Anyway, here's his message (as best as I could decypher it).


I call Johnny Wong - me numba one dhobey man Loyal Navy long time!

I'm not paying that dhobey walla. He's the one with the machine which took all the buttons off my shirts and put them inside my socks. And the bstd starched my nicks.
