It's been years since I shared an overheard here [although if you follow me on Twitter you'll be all up-to-date with what my ears have been eavesdropping on lately].
It hasn't been quite as long ago as the last Olympics, but it's not far off. So let me rectify that right now with (well, I was going to say "With something suitably Brazillian" ... but, I know you, you'd get the wrong idea. Deliberately.) ... with something suitably topical then ...
Overheard when? 1 May 2013
Overheard where? Boots the chemist. North East England
Sales Assistant 1: "She thought Brazil was in Spain".
After which Sales Assistant 2 paused before replying: "Well ... isn't it?"
Let's hope Team GB and the rest of the Olympians (I suppose it's only sporting) have had the foresight to flip through an atlas by now!
