Did you ever! I was expecting the usual English 'polite fest' of: "Oh no, don't you worry," from the old girl, and then I would have said: "I could honestly stab myself in the eye." And then she'd say: "Oh, it was probably my fault for dithering," and then I'd say: "Oh no, it was my fault for pushing in." And on it would go for another five minutes whilst we both blamed ourselves. Now, this is how proper people in England do it. So if you bump into each other again, you can smile at each other, stop in the street for a little chat and both blame yourselves, all over again.
