Yesterday I was standing in a packed elevator when a woman started rapidly firing French at me. I did my usual smile and nod but she kept going and pointing to my back saying ‘button’. What? I thought. I don’t have buttons on this top.
Col (from the other side of the elevator): ‘Jen. You’re on the elevator button. That’s why we aren’t moving’.
They ALL laughed. All 10 of them. ‘Sorry, I’m from Australia’ I said. What else could I say?
