Somebody expected something that you might expect them to expect. What happened next, changed the way the post office is run and made this statue of Lenin cry milk.

"I expected something," said Lane MacLane of McFarlane county, "I mean, that's what people normally do in these sorts of situations; expect things, right?"

Lane is a typical clothes-wearing person, who speaks with the dialect of a particular region. At first glance, you wouldn't expect Lane to expect things that aren't typical for people to expect in response to a particular situation. Well, they say you can't judge a book by its cover. But in this case, you can. Lane's expectations were exactly what you would expect them to be. That is to say, the outcome which he expected from a situation was the exact outcome which you would probably be expected to expect Lane to expect.

Here is Lane's comment regarding his expectation:

In response, the Post Office has made several changes to their operating structure, as expected. Also, a bronze statue of Lenin cried milk. Nobody was expecting that.
