But...I did learn one useful thing. Windshield wipers are not sold in pairs. When the fellow says they are $28, he means each. So our van now has the most luxurious set of blades it will ever own.
And to get even more random, about six months ago someone sent me an email with the word chuffed in it. It seemed like a positive word in the context that it was used, but I had no idea what it meant. A quick click over to the online dictionary gave me this:
informal - pleased or delighted: I suppose you're feeling pretty chuffed [origin unknown]
Now I see that word everywhere! It's always English people using it (as in from England). I feel like an insider now when I see it and know what it means. Language is so funny.
I'm pretty chuffed to know this word.
