The Last Straw

John was tenant of a small farm in the north. One of the old school, he was a hard worker and fiercely impatient of any set-backs. Bad weather for weeks on end, had, however, badly disorganised work on the farm and in particular there had been serious delay in getting in his hay. He was, however, relying on the promise of assistance from a relative who was Chief Officer on the Queen Elizabeth and residing in the district on leave.

At last the weather improved and work was to commence next day. The Chief Officer duly appeared at the farm as arranged but only to report that he had been suddenly recalled to his ship which was due to sail that night.
All his plans thus upset, John was at first speechless with anger.
    "Dammit! Dammit!" he stormed. "Can the Queen Elizabeth no wait an sail on a weit day."
