[ Jokes - Trini Translations - Yuh know yuh Trini if... ]


Only A Jamaican, Barbadian and a Trinidadian.

There were three men from the Caribbean living together in London: a Trinidadian, a Barbadian and a Jamaican who were all hungry because they didn't have money to buy food. However, upon coming close to a posh restaurant they came up with a plan.

The Jamaican went in first. After being seated he ordered a three course meal with white wine. When he had finished the meal the waiter came by with the cheque.
"But I paid you!" the Jamaican shouted.
The waiter was very confused as he could not remember being paid, but as he did not want to cause any trouble...he let the Jamaican leave.

Five minutes later the Barbadian walked into the restaurant and ordered a five course meal with red wine. When he was finished eating, the waiter came by to collect the money for food.
"But I paid you!" The Barbadian shouted.
This time the manager came and had to calm down the Bajan, and as he did not want anything to upset the other customers he let the Bajan go.

Ten minutes later the Trinidadian walked in, sat down, lit a cigarette, and ordered the most expensive meal on the menu plus two Carib beers. After he had finished, the waiter came to collect the money for the meal. Before asking for it, the waiter said, "Sir... I have been having a sort of problem all day and I can't understand it. Other people like you came in earlier and ate and they said that they paid me but I don't remember getting any money from them, so...

Before he could finish, the Trinidadian chimed in loudly "Hear meh nah boss, dat is your problem...jus give meh change
