Between Me and two co-workers
Bert and Jo-ann

Bert answers the phone...

Bert: "Hello... yes!

Me: "ANNE FRANK she was famous"

Bert: "She was blind"

Me: "What?"

Bert: "Anne Frank" "She was blind, right? Famous for being blind"

Me: "You Canadians don't know what the hell you're talkin' a boot"

Bert: "Anne Frank.. she was blind AND deaf"

Me: "Nooooo, no... she was the one locked in the cabinet"

Jo-Ann: "Cabinet... Bwhahahaha"

Me: "I mean attic.. attic!.. she was locked in an attic.. she was hiding
from the Nazi's"

Jo-Ann: "You said cabinet because I'm working on a kitchen
cabinet ad, that's hilarious, Bwahahaha"

Bert: "She was the blind girl"

Me: "Noo Bert, she was Jewish ...with the book!! the book , remember the book?"

Bert: "She wasn't blind?"

Me: "No, I think you're thinking of Helen Keller..."

Jo-Ann: "Cabinet - HAhahahahha locked in a cabinet"

Bert: "Helen Keller??- was she Jewish?"

Jo-Ann: "I don't think so.. she was from South"

Bert: "The SOUTH? that's a shame"

Anne Frank's hiding area was behind a swinging bookcase. That's kind of like a cabinet.
