When I was very young we used to go swimming at the local baths, on the way back we always went into the fish and chip shop. The owner looked just like Joe 90 and we all called him Joe, one day when we were in the shop Joe slipped out the back and the chip fryer caught fire. Not knowing what to do, we shouted Joe's name as loud as we could. Eventually Joe came back and jumped over the counter towards us, we thought we were in serious trouble as Joe didn't like us calling him that name. He just grabbbed us and threw us to the floor as unbeknown to us the shop door had locked and the room was full of black smoke. Joe helped us crawl to the door and escape. When the fire brigade arrived they said Joe had saved us and he got an award. I always got an extra something when ever I went in there again.
Attending a modern art exhibition a few years ago with my mother, we didn't know what to make of the strange items we were confronted with. In one room, there was a piece of chewing gum stuck on the wall, with a piece of paper stuck on it, which read "Back in five minutes." This was one of the exhibits. Everything was equally weird, but everyone attending the exhibition were enthusing about it all. Not wanting to look out of place, my mother and I stood by a large circular mechanical contraption, and discussed what we thought were the merits of this particular exhibit. We soon noticed that an employee of the art centre was watching us, and then came over to where we were standing. He informed us that we were not in fact looking at an exhibit, but an industrial sized air extractor. We felt foolish, and left the exhibition.
