On today’s first foray for April, we looked at two cases which may or may not be related, as you will see.
First off came news of the man who inadvertently over ordered a supply of reading glasses.
Now my wife keeps telling me that I’m not very good with “small print” and not much better with other larger print sizes either, so only sends me shopping in a real emergency!
But even I had never done this!
Tom Arnold from PERRANPORTH, Cornwall, thought he’d bought 10 pairs of glasses on line, but somehow managed to buy 60 pairs.
Frankly I’m amazed that he needed 10 but he says that he and his wife are always losing their glasses around the house. I can easily identify with that.
Well at least that won’t be a problem for him now!
Anyway it seems that he accidentally clicked on 12 sets of 5 providing him with a total of 60.
Oh by the way it’s unclear whether he was wearing glasses at the time he placed the order.
Well at least now he’ll have “supervision” for his next order!
Now whether there is any connection with our next story is unclear but since they both occurred in the same part of the country and seem to involve a lack of clear sight, may suggest a link.
Anyway the driver of a Mercedes seems to have somehow managed to jam his vehicle on a Cornish coastal path close to East Looe Beach.
Seems the vehicle was abandoned there last Friday night and it was still there the following day with a temporary fence subsequently placed round it.
There seems to be no way forward and reversing it would be nigh on impossible with the vehicle teetering on the edge of a big drop.
The vehicle was eventually removed by a specialist recovery team as it seems the steering had been damaged in the incident. Glad I wasn’t handling the recovery.
I’ll bet the driver won’t take that route again in a hurry!
Hope to see you aga tomorrow – if I can keep to the straight and narrow!
