A dear friend from Glosgow, Scotland
frequently sends me emails
that reflect the British humor or culture.
I thought this one was worth sharing.


I already knew I was thicker than 11 year olds ...But now it's the pre-schoolers??  


Which way is the bus below travelling?
To the left or to the right?

Can't make up your mind?
Look carefully at the picture again.

Still don't know? 

Pre-schoolers all over the United Kingdom  were shown this picture and asked the same question. Ninety percent of the pre-schooler's gave this answer. 

"The bus is travelling to the right."

When asked, 
"Why do you think the bus is travelling to the right?" 

They answered: 
"Because you can't see the door to get on the bus." 

How do you feel now???

I know, me too.
I quickly emailed Ian to tell him that, here, the bus would be traveling to the left. I added, I still would have not gotten the answer correctly.

Hope you enjoy the laugh!

How cute is that! I will have to show it to the grands...of course they never ride a bus because they live too close to the school. xo Diana

Why do adults make things so much harder than they have to be. This was cute and No, I'm not smarter than a preschooler.

Dearest Ginger,

That is hilarious! Simple and true... Love to you and enjoy a great Sunday. Hope your son is doing better.

Love to you,

Well...I flunked! I'm so NOT smarter than a preschooler! I find out just how "dumb" I am everyday when I try to help my 8 year old granddaughter with her math homework. Thanks for the chuckle!

Happy Week

Maybe in the UK because they drive on the left side of the road....we drive on the right, so US preschoolers would have said left. ;P
