i recall being in Oz and we were at a pub playing darts. we run out of chalk for scoring and decided to use a pen and paper instead. but none of us
had a pen.
so we were like asking other patrons and bar staff for a pen and they were like, 'what do you want a 'pin' for?' we were saying, 'no a pen',
and trying to make drawing/writing signs with our hands, lol.
finally one of them figured it out and said, 'oh you want a pan
'! and they gave us a pen.
aAArgh! yea that'll do ... cheers mate, lol!
