You Think You’re Smart…

Overheard on the train this morning, part of a conversation between two Financial Times readers:

Reader One: “So what is bauxite?”

Reader Two: “Aluminium ore”

Reader One: “Aluminium or what?”

Those of us sitting nearby had a good chuckle at that – until we realised, with that heart-sinking-into-bowels feeling, that she wasn’t joking. I wish I was making this up, but I’m not.

Don’t laugh – your pension might be in their hands :-(
