    I wouldn't have cared about the laptop but this would have upset me no end!

Unfortunately there is only a certain amount of times you can interact with your crotch in a room full of children before people start to question your motives. Somehow I'd also got rice pudding on my hand so when I was removing my crotch pudding I put new pud on my thigh and foot. At this moment I thought "I should keep spare clothes in the boot of my car"
    I am laughing out loud at the thought of the man wrestling with rice pudding in a food hall...worthy of Rowan Atkinson

    This is too funny. If I didn't know better I'd think you were a parody tech account set up to amuse me. Hope your life starts to improve imminitely!

    Chin up! At least noone is hurt. Perhaps a little pride but that's easily rebuilt!
    Must admit to giggling at the rice pudding incident. If it doesn't get staff's tongues wagging then you'll gain a couple of nicknames from the kids! They love a staff mishap.

    What a great idea. Methinks there should be an entire thread dedicated to schadenfreude!

    I put a pen behind my ear

    Five mins later member of staff points out the error in my ways

    The pen had leaked all over my ear and on my shirt and neck.

    What a mess.

    Luckily i live across the road and grabbed a shirt and a rater quick shower.
