Mum's are nice
Written on toilet wall 'My mother made me a homosexual!'

» Dad stories

Daddy!
Friend A at school was messing around with friend B's sister... all kept hush hush, until she becomes pregnant. It all comes out, friend B is slightly miffed but eventually happy that it was his mate and all is good with the world. For some reason friend A doesn't tell his parents.

The couple don't last, but he pays support, visits and has the kid all the time. After a couple of years he is ready to tell his parents, and get's a paternity test to show them all is legit.

The kid wasn't his.

» What's the most horrific thing you've seen?

A strange career
When I was a younger, and less fat harry, I lived in Bangladesh.

In Bangladesh begging was considered a career, and in order to improve their chances people woud have limbs removed, so there are many limbless (some have 1 removed, others all 4 down to stumps) beggers about the place who would clamour around you whenever you went out, which is pretty horrific and difficult to understand when you are 4. (and now to be be honest)

The strangest part of this story however, is the chap with only stumps, who would carry his begging container in his mouth, and roll up and down the main street in Dhaka... he was picked up at each end of the street in a rather nice car.

Made me feel better about the world for some strange reason.

Apologies for length, but happy endings could be in short supply this week...

A little too trusting for my own good...
ok... this is a little embarassing... I'll try to keep it brief.

Lived for 3 years in that london in a nice block of flats, lots of rental properties so there were always people moving in and out etc.

Bloke rings doorbell, introduces himself as having just moved into flat at end of corridoor and is jangling keys in confident manner, nice to meet you says I thinking how nice it was that he came to say hello...

Long story short he proceeds to tell me that he has a taxi waiting outside, and his wife isn't in so could he borrow some cash to pay the taxi driver and hell pay me back as soon as she arrives, it was only seven quid.... my initial thought was no... but it was only 7, and in the same situation I'd like to think my neighbours would help me out (there were no cash machines nearby)so I go in search of some cash... I return and say there you go 7 happy that even if I never got the cash back I had been a good samaritan... the clever bugger then goes 'oh no, sorry its 17' making out like I had misheard... so I handed over 20... *hangs head in relived shame*

I told my mates what had happened, and they cheerfully called me a gullible tosser whilst I argued that he could be genuine and that they would feel bad when he dropped the cash back the next day, al the while with a sinking feeling in my heart.

I never did get the cash back, and I overheard someone else talking about 'some conman in the building knocking on everyones door'...

On a similar vein, people don't often run out of petrol, the guy asking you is just trying to get cash together... even I don't fall for that one ;)
