on the road 8

the train from Richmond to Staines, a young guy, looking a bit like Harry Potter, on the phone talking about this and that (mostly Bristol, Manchester, Charles Dickens and extractor fans)

"...and then I went out for a curry...with the housemaids."

I'm irritated and fascinated at the same time.
With the housemaids? Does he have more than one? Is he that posh? Are they young and good looking? Or is he some sort of communist?
And then I think about it again and suddenly realize ; housemates not maids!!!
Well, version number one sounded much more exciting really...guess I've watched too much "Downton Abbey".
