Overheard while queueing to get into the Lido at London Fields on the hottest day of the year.  Young Man (mid-20s?), young boy in tow, on mobile phone:

YM:  No, I forgot the sun-cream  He’ll be all right.  He’ll just have to keep his t-shirt on in the pool… (pause)… I am NOT going to ask a complete stranger for sun-cream… (pause)… I’m NOT GOING TO ASK… (pause)… Because all they’ll do is tell me to go and get my own fucking sun-cream… (pause)… Because that’s what I’d say if a complete stranger asked me.
