A young man asks for shelter for the night when his car breaks down in the middle of nowhere.
The old couple invite him in, apologise for only having two bedrooms – one for
them and the other for their unmarried daughter – but offer him the sofa for the night.
Round about 4 am, it turns bitterly cold and the old woman comes down to see if he’s alright.
“Would you like our eiderdown?” she asks.
“Oh no, no thank you!” he exclaims. “She’s already been down twice.”
