BITTER SWEET DESSERT COST BRIT £22K (Lewis)
Usually when you go to a restaurant, you pay the most for the main course. Then if you’re full, you pass on dessert or, if you are like me, you eat a dessert until you can no longer walk. Not for this Brit, who shelled out £22,000 on a dessert. The extravagant pudding was glazed with edible gold and strawberry champagne caviar and as you can see from the picture served in a massive bowl. Would you pay that much for a pudding?
ZODIAC DISCRIMINATION (Aimee)
Some of us are guiltier of indulging in horoscopes than others and falling in with the belief that personality stereotypes associated with each sign are definite. However, a Chinese company which has been caught refusing to hire all Scorpios and Virgos is guiltiest of all. These unlucky signs have been refused employment due to reputations of violent mood swings and highly critical natures. A spokeswoman at the English training company in Wuhan has admitted her crime and states that she has had some unfortunate incidents with the star signs and stated that they either quarreled or couldn’t hack the job.If however, you’re a Capricorn, Pisces or a Libra then happy days as they are considered to be more employable. I’m a Taurus but I have no idea how I’m rated on the employable scale.
THERE’S KEEN AND THEN THERE’S DESPERATE (Laura)
After a disastrous date you never want to see the person in question again and it becomes really annoying when they try calling you not once but several times. But spare a thought for this woman from New York who was bombarded with phone calls and texts from one hapless lover – which lead to a final 1,615 word email in which he highlighted her apparent flaws but insisted he was willing to look over these and give the relationship a go. Frustrated the single lady posted the email on the internet and it has since gone viral – much to the embarrassment of her date. In the letter, he chides her for flirting with him by playing with her hair and comes across as a bit of a desperado suggesting that the pair are soul mates as they both like the Philharmonic. It’s a pretty pathetic letter and no wonder the woman in question decided to leak it on the net. A word to the wise to guys on the dating scene if a woman doesn’t call you back she’s not interested and a snivelling letter will definitely not win her over no matter how pleading you sound. So man up and take it on the chin – plenty more fish in the sea as the old saying goes!
WHEN I GO SEE VILLA, MY VIEW IS BLOCKED BY A CONCRETE PILLAR (Adrian)
In these days of ultra-smart, shiny new stadiums, it’s easy to forget that many sports fans still face a terrible match experience by having a severely limited view of the game. There are many ageing facilities throughout the world where, if you sit in the wrong spot, you’re likely to spend the entire match staring around a pillar or scaffold to see the action on the pitch. This list from Yahoo Sports highlights some of the worst offenders and shows the full horror that fans still experience on match days. Just imagine paying £30 or more for these kind of views…
