I have to admit I laughed at the story about the sign hitting the man. Shame on me.

I wish the chip (fries) story had included more pictures (unless I just wasn't finding them). The one provided was nice, but I would have preferred some of the others listed.

You might find this site useful Kelly. Though the images are pretty small you can click on them to enlarge.

Another terrific Monday Media post, Tracy! These stories are as amusing as ever, but your comment, "As a fellow chocoholic I can understand his desperation", really cracked me up!

I'm surprised that wasn't me under that hospital sign. I do appreciate and am quite often the victim of such things. LOL

Also, I think it is reasonable to use a forklift for chocolate... :)

I really wish that I had attended London South Bank University.

Haha, sorry but the sign story cracked me up. Also helps to explain my fear of anything to do with hospitals and the NHS.

Hate to admit it, but I laughed about the hospital sign hitting that poor man! And I wonder why the psychology students couldn't have gone to a regular pub to observe the patrons and saved the money? As for the man and the chocolate bar, sounded entirely reasonable to me! ;)

I can understand the 27 year old's frustration! I've been starving before now and crisp bags will often get stuck in the vending machine and I've had to get one of the lads to come and give the machine a shove to dislodge it!

Betty Manousos said...
