Amazing tales of truth

Post#1 » Mon Jul 12, 2004 6:15 am

This article was in todays local newspaper, yesterday a mom was securing a child in the back seat. When she got out a child in the front seat managed to get the car rolling, it landed on the railing of the floating raft and .. well, just look at it, 5 centimeters more and the kids would have plunged into the sea...

That was close. Phewph!

But I have a less dangerous amazing tale of truth to share which was shared with me today in a Health talk. This guy went to the library to study. He was in University. It's a four storey library. Anyway, he usually studies on the third story. But he can't find a table. So he goes on the fourth floor. He studies, and then he needs the loo. So he finds this door. And he goes through it. He notices something different about the toilet. Usually (not that I would know) a mens toilet has two cubicles and a urinal. But he notices there is no urinal, just four cubicles. He thinks they've torn the urinal out for more space. (Thick, isn't he?) And he looks around. Usually in a mens toilet there is only a little mirror. But in this toilet, the whole back wall is a mirror. (Hello? Anyone home?) The guy is clueless. Well, it does take a while for him to figure out it's a girls toilet. And when he did, he got worried that he would be locked up. Locked up! And he did this whole dodge-everyones-eyes-till-you're-off-the-floor thing. He's sure that if he doesn't, someone will guess where he went. And of course, people only think he's up to something becuase he's all nervous and dodging being seen the best he can. And he was 19.
Probably a dumb story, but it was really funny when the guy told us the story in Health.
*loni sighs cause it really doesn't sound funny when she tells it.

I'm a hit! Yay! There WAS more to the story, but, well, I ain't telling, to all those kiddies who haven't had Health lessons yet.
I can't believe someone thought it was actually funny. Well, if you thought me telling it was funny, you should've seen him. He was REALLY funny.

lol, Loni.
Actually, I mistakenly went into the men's washroom at the shopping mall once. Very embarassing. And those urinals are just there in the open! :superscared:

A lot of the girls in my local tend to use the cubicle in the mens on a regular basis because the queue is shorter. We tend to get used to them just wondering in and out.

I’ve always thought this was a great idea for a thread, and at some point I’ll post more in here, but for now, here’s a neat story I just read over at USAToday;

Dog Calls 911 to Help Woman, By Paul T. Erickson, Tri-City Herald

RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) — Leana Beasley has faith that a dog is man's best friend. Faith, a 4-year-old Rottweiler, phoned 911 when Beasley fell out of her wheelchair and barked urgently into the receiver until a dispatcher sent help. Then the service dog unlocked the front door for the police officer.

"I sensed there was a problem on the other end of the 911 call," said dispatcher Jenny Buchanan. "The dog was too persistent in barking directly into the phone receiver. I knew she was trying to tell me something."

Faith is trained to summon help by pushing a speed-dial button on the phone with her nose after taking the receiver off the hook, said her owner, Beasley, 45, who suffers grand mal seizures. Guided by experts at the Assistance Dog Club of Puget Sound, Beasley helped train Faith herself.

The day of the fall, Faith "had been acting very clingy, wanting to be touching me all day long," Beasley said Thursday.

The dog, whose sensitive nose can detect changes in Beasley's body chemistry, is trained to alert her owner to impending seizures. But that wasn't what was happening on Sept. 7, and Faith apparently wasn't sure how to communicate the problem. During Beasley's three-week hospital stay, doctors determined her liver was not properly processing her seizure medication.


What a great story, way to go Faith! :puppy:
