Directions (Short Comedy Sketch)
(phone ringing) – Yello? – I just got off the train. – Hello? Who’s there? – It’s me. I’m at the station. – Cool. – Where are you? – Home. You? – We agreed to meet at the station. – Something came up. – I was gonna pick up the suit then catch the 12:40 train back to London Waterloo East. – Don’t worry. You’ll still make it. Just come to my place. – Fine. – So, where is it? – Walk down the main road for a bit, then up that street that goes to the left-ish, it’s where the buses always go. Turn at the roundabout. And you’ll soon be at my place. – Which one is the main road? I’m on the corner of Brickley Street and Leahurst Road. The Southwest corner. – Yeah, down the main road. It’s the one with the kebab shops on it. – Okay, down Brickley Street. Which direction? – Away from the station. – So I come out of the station, through the main exit, and one of the ticket offices, so I come onto the main road. Do I turn left or right? – Let me think. – Do I turn towards the kebab center or the city grill? – Yes, the one with the red sign. So walk for about five minutes, turn left-ish at the new house they built last year, the one with the big round thingies on it. – What? – And call me once you’re past the roundabout. – Hello? (phone ringing) – Yello? – Just tell me the post code. I already missed the 12:40 train. – It’s SE6 7PP. – Thanks. I’ll see you in…eight minutes. – (automated voice) Please walk to the Southwest corner of Brickley Street and Leahurst Road. Now walk down the main road for a bit then up that street that goes kind of left-ish. It’s where the buses always go. Take a turn at the roundabout, and you’ll soon be at your destination.
