    Anyone else occasionally misread a sign and not get what they were expecting. Sometime ago I read a sign as 'Bear Garden'. Expecting some sort of themed area we went in..............to a perfectly normal beer garden.

    Remembered that today as we to a garden centre. The guy on the way in told us everything was laid out by type, boarder, climbers etc and then alphabetically in each section.

    From a distance there was a sing I read as 'Cumbers' I started giggling and imagined an empty glass house with only the beds labelled 'C' for cucumber with anything in them. my wife, as usual, looked at me nonplussed and asked 'what's so funny about a section for climbers?'.
