The trouble with Miss Demeanour, Miss Understood and Miss Guided …

poster for zizziology blog "Trouble with Miss Demeanour, Miss Understood and Miss Guided"

 

>>> HERE are 3 short examples:

The perfect driver?

Miss Demeanour¬†arrived by taxi at her destination. The irate taxi driver turned to her and said: “There’ll be no charge, lady; you did most of the driving.”

The perfect writer?

Miss Understood sent a number of articles to a celebrated newspaper columnist, asking his advice as to the best channel for marketing her writings.

The articles came back with this response:

“The one channel I can recommend as the greatest outlet for articles of this type is the English channel.”

The perfect secretary?

Miss Guided¬†a doctor’s secretary – was perplexed by an entry in the doctor’s notes on an emergency case: “Shot in the lumbar region.” After a moment she brightened up and, in the interest of plainness, typed into the record: “Shot in the woods.”

 

QUESTION: Which “Miss” might you be?
