Had this question in a proper pub quiz a few years ago. I had to really fight for Inter. I was the only girl on our team, so even though most of the time people respect my opinion, there is the odd time when they’d rather believe a guy. A guy on the team said it was Ajax, so I had to be so persistent “I will put my house on it being Inter”. So frustrating sometimes.


The one thing I hate about quizzes in particular is when you’re in a team with others and some joker just won’t listen to you because they’re certain they know the answer.

Did one a few years back where the question was “which fast food chain has the most stores/locations in the USA?”

I knew the answer was Subway, for some reason it was one of those unexpected facts that just stuck in my head. I said this was the answer, had one mate scoff and say something about how that’s stupid, a couple other in the team smirked/chuckled. He put down McDonald’s instead.

Without using any words I was still a massively smug cunt when it came to being given the answers later.
