A joke to practice directions.


- Hi
- Do you know where the post office is?
- Uhm, The one at Elkinston or the one at Churchiston?
- Elkinson. That's it. Yeah, yeah, Elkinson, yeah.
- Elkinson. Well I think it's just down here.
- Over there?
- Yeah. Go to the end of this road.
- Right.
- Then take first left.
- First left.
- At the end of the road.

- And then the first right after that. And then the post-office should be...
- Yeah.

- Shall we...?
- Yes, ok.

- Ok. Do you know where the post-office is?
- Yeah. It's just down here, at the end of the road. Turn left. Your first right after that and then... it's on your left.

- I'll catch you later. Thanks very much.
- Good luck.
- Yeah. Cheers! Thanks. See you later.
