There's an amusing piece in local news magazine Windermere Now this month, about daft questions put to members of Windermere Lake Cruises staff.
The magazine lists their top ten, including these gems:
How long does the 40 minute cruise last?
Can I go to the front of the queue as I've got ice creams?
Years ago I went to Ambleside. Is it still there?
For my sat nav, what is the postcode of the mountains?
And number one, and my own favourite as well:
Can the boat come and pick me up from Blackpool? (This on a lake that's completely land-locked and about 50 miles from Blackpool...!)
There's no information on how the staff managed to answer those questions without either splitting their sides laughing or thumping the people concerned... but it really does show there's nowt so queer as folk!
