Check-Out Chaps' Gossip

While we were at the checkout in Sainsbury's this afternoon (bad choice of time for going to supermarket but the basket-only queue was short) the check-out chaps were having a three way conversation over our heads.

"Tom, y'know Tom?"
"Tall Tom?"
"Nah, Produce Tom"
"Oh yeah, Produce Tom. What about 'im?"
"He's in jail."
"In jail?" incredulous, "but he's so innocent. What did he do?"
"Here he is" producing a copy of Hornsey Journal with pictures in. Much shock and incredulity.
"He's in for football hooliganism. You know those Charlton and Southampton fans..."

And we think women can gossip.
