A farmer was herding some sheep along the road when he came across a foot-sore tourist sitting on the side of the road.
“How long will it take me to get to the nearest town?” the walker asked.
“Sorry, I don’t know,” the farmer replied.
“You obviously farm round here and you can’t tell me how long it will take me to get to town,” the walker said.
“Sorry, I’ve got no idea,” the farmer said.
The walker got to his feet and started limping down the road.
The farmer watched him until he was a few hundred metres away then she yelled, “It’ll be a good hour from here.”
The walker turned round and yelled back, “Two minutes ago you didn’t know how long it would take me and now it’s be a good hour, are you having me on?”
“No,” the farmer said. “It was just I didn’t know how fast you’d be walking.
