You just have to laugh sometimes! I work two mornings each week, and this morning, I had forgotten to tell Hugh, the man that stays with William ("to help with the garden") something. So I phoned when I got to work - and William eventually answered the phone, sounding very nervous. Him: "Er, uh he-helloo? who is it?" Me: "Hi love, it's Alice. I need to talk to Hugh. Can you call him?" Him: "Alice is not here now, sorry." Me: "No, William, This is me!" William: "What? Is that you? Well, where are you?" Me: "I'm at work. I need to talk to Hugh. Can you call him?" Him: "You need to talk to you?" Me: "HUGH! Him: "Oh Hugh - where is he? Is he outside? I'll go look!" - and eventually went and got him!
I wish the guy's name was Tom! Mind you, William doesn't know his name anyway - he never has. He usually calls him whatever comes into his head!
