Nora-isms  
We have a lady where I work whose name isn't Nora but for the sake of anonymity I shall call her that. And in truth it could well be her name, because she is the worst speller ever, to the point where we often have to ring her to ask her what she was trying to say in her file notes. Recently she's taken to drawing up her notes in Word and running spell checker over them before pasting them into the loan submission, and it's resulted in some hilarious Nora-isms. Like the following:
1. "She has a really strong accident" . (Oh dear, I do hope no-one was hurt).
2. "He is a maniacal engineer". (mad as a two-bob watch but boy can he design bridges!)
3. "He is a signal at home with his father". (and when he's downtown he's a guardrail)
4. "She understands that the funds are to be kept in truant". (they'll never graduate if they keep that up)

It's not only Nora who gives us a giggle though. Valuers are often unwittingly funny; I had one valuation today where the valuer, describing the locality of the subject property, listed the cemetery as a local feature. Maybe it's popular with teenagers on nights when the moon is full.

... and I'm laughing more than I really should at that...
