We asked Mr Griffs whether he prefers print or digital books.
‘I don’t mind print books.' With a cheeky smile he said, 'I know I’m not supposed to, but I like to fold the corners of the page to mark where I left off. I can never find a bookmark, anyway’.
Hearing this, we assured him that it wasn’t such a bad habit and that lots of people do that.
Looking bashful, he then admitted that he also liked to lick his thumb before turning the page. ‘I suppose that’s why people like digital books. No licking the fingers. Less germs. It’s cleaner that way.'
A phrase Mr Griffs uses when listening to something he doesn't want hear or when he doesn't want to admit his lack of knowledge about something. We often use this line to show his quirky idiosyncrasies and to highlight just how much of a unique character he is. | As he was munching on a grape, the worker behind the station started to spruik the product. He had just begun to rant on about the antioxidants in red grapes when Mr Griffs cut into the conversation. ‘Sure, sure. It’s obvious, no?’ He had long ago stopped listening to pushy salespeople and often used this phrase to pacify them. |
