    I got accused in another thread of making up stuff..so what bizarre situation have YOU got into, that people might disbelieve?

    One of many, as I lead a colourful life, if on my YTS placement, the hard disk manufacturer I worked for on placement, received a flightbox, but no details on it, and the hdisk inside, was blank. It was stored, as no details were known of it's origin, or owner. Several months later, the lead singer of UB40 rang me, demanding the return of his songs, and effing and jeffing at me....unfortunately, his hdisk, was wiped blank, but had no fault.

    And at the time, (late 80's), no data recovery available....so I was sworn at by UB40.

    I do not believe you have not put this on here before.
    I do not believe that some of the comments you put on here are believable.

    How bizarre is that:D

    Slightly off topic, but I think relevent none the less...

    This was a customer who I enjoyed working for. I remember working late at their house one night, only to be offered dinner and a few beers. I really enjoyed their company as I had known them 10 years, but just had one glass of wine with my dinner as I had to get home. To me, this was unbelievable, so now I never think anything is 'unbelievable' anymore. :cry: Mr. Weddell.

  6. Micky being sober, getting a paid job and coming off benefits is something I'd disbelieve.

    Had an ak47 shoved in me face and kidnapped by a dozen irish terrorists and held at gunpoint for three hours, and then frog marched into a bog by three of them in the dark and told to turn around so we couldn't see them make there escape, though we thought we was gonna get a bullet in the back.
    OOh the pleasures of growing up in the border area of blissful Ireland.

    Blimey! I'll choose to ignore the more banal replies, that is awful, Norcon, I was due to do maintainence work at an Asda store, and as I'm walking in, the store is quiet, no people about, and I get a phone call from my colleague who is signing in the office round the corner, he says, 'Don't enter the building, there's a raid', next thing, 3 guys come running out, waving a gun in my direction, after attempting to rob an ATM. The three of the faff about trying to get into a 2 door car, then speed off, for a police people carrier type vehicle to enter the carpark in hot pursuit, nearly running me over, there is one entry, and one exit to this carpark, so the next thing the car comes back, with police in persuit, to leave via the entrance.

    The robbers were spotted in the carpark, putting on balaclavas, so the alarm was raised before they even entered the building.

    In the robbery, apparently, one of the robbers cut his finger off, while using the angle grinder to take the safe door off the atm, and when police attended his house, his neighbour said, 'I thought it strange to see the lads, trying on balaclavas'....strange but true....

    To the others, WHY be rude, if you have nothing better to say, don't say it...although the question tends to be, be truthful about what you post. Nige F, how old are you? UB40 forms haven't been used in decades. I talk UB40 the band...but if you must insult people for your own amusement, then that shows how immature you are, same sentiment to dangermouse. Why don't YOU get a job, that doesn't steal from honest people? I fixed my washing machine for £4 (condensor), where people like you would charge excessive rates for parts and labour. If in fact you work. You don't state what you do, you hide behind a username, and slag people off for your amusement. At least I'm open about what I am. Your just a cyber bully, and need to get a life.

    That's the thing with weird stories....I'd hope to believe people post true. Not for people to dismiss, and distrust. If YOUR life is so boring, and you never had ANYTHING happen in it, then I'm sorry, you never met me, but I'd like to see REAL stories, as mine are.

    The Asda story would be reported in the paper/police report, and can be verified, the UB40 can't, unless you interview their lead singer that swore at me. But I swear that these happened.

    Pulling cabes thru an Embassy in a riser. Nowhere to turn, saw a door and gave it a kick.
    Two large guns stuck in my face by even larger soldiers. I had entered into the secure comms area.
    Lucky not to, 1. Lose job. 2. Be shot. 3. Fill pants.

    Severe "roasting" in security office to say the least.

    Norcon's definately sounds the most horrific and I'm happy to believe his story is true.
    Mine's a rather bit more light hearted but again would be difficult to verify.
    It happened quite some years ago (15 or 20?) when we were working in Oxford if I recall correctly.Only a small job and we had our breaks in a van. At the same time Gail Porter was doing some filming nearby and we had said hello and she had replied and everything was pleasent.(This was before she had the problems that caused her hair to fall out so that dates it to a point).
    Then one day she strolled over the few yards from where she was filming to chat, there being a break in filming for some reason I can't remember.
    Anyway after a little bit of small talk, she was asking about the work we were doing ( it may have been a theater we were working on, I'm not really sure) Ted the old bricklayer asked her a question.
    "Do you want a bag of silver sand?"
    She looked a bit shocked at the question and started to move away mumbling something about having to get back to work, and never spoke to us again :oops:

    For a few years now I have fancied a trip around France in a little car to save on fuel costs. I had not mentioned it to anybody. Then my friend knowing I ran a Fiat gave me his old one that worked very well. It is left hand drive....how bizarre is that. :D
