Brief Encounter

I met a woman on a train once
In the Netherlands
She says something in Dutch
I say:
I’m English, sorry
She says:
You know UB40?
I say:
Yes
She says:
You know their name stood for ‘Unemployed Benefit 40’? That was because they were on state support and that was the form they had to complete to claim it
I say:
I did not know that

She smiles
I smile
We
Look out of the window
