    I was working late round there Monday going along the street picking up the wheely bins. I got to one house where the bin hasn’t been left out so I has a quick look for it, and then knocks on the door. Eventually a Chinese man answers… “Harro”, he says. “Alright mate, where’s your bin?” I asks. “I bin on toiret” replies the Chinese bloke, looking perplexed. “No mate, where’s ya dust bin?” “I dust bin on toiret I told you” says the Chinese man. “Mate”, I says…”you’re misunderstanding me… Where’s your wheelie bin?” “OK, OK”, says the Chinese guy. “I wheely bin havin wank”
