    So, you're standing in a queue at the check out of your local supermarket and the man directly in front of you places two cases of beer, four cans of beer, a pack of toilet rolls and a packet of BBQ'ing sausages on the conveyor.

    Assistant checks it all through and the man suddenly discovers he's a little short but not 3 feet 6 inches tall.

    Unconcerned by his poor budgeting he casually rummages through every pocket in his jeans and then his jacket.

    Failing to find anything in either garment he then goes through his jeans pockets a second time.:angry:

    Again he finds nothing.:frown2:

    The man then casually turned to me and asked if it would be possible to loan him the difference

    Unfortunately for him I pretended I only spoke English and didn't understand what he was saying. It's a little tactic that often comes in handy when confronted by beggars.:yesnod:

    Unperturbed he then asked the lady standing directly behind me and she, in no uncertain terms, refused him in a most vocal way.

    Realising he had no option but to put something back he asked the check out assistant the cost of each item.

    'Put those four cans back' the lady advised him.

    Before making his final decision the man gave his dilemma a little more thought whilst searching his pockets for a third time.:001_huh:

    So here we go then, Rep' goes to the first one who correctly guesses which one of the five items the man finally chose to return.

    I would guess the sausages... Everyone needs toilet roll and I'm guessing that man really needed his beer... So, I'm sticking to sausages :)

    God forbid I ever dwell on this thought;

    The sausage wrapper is polythene.

    He might be in the toilet forever more trying to clean himself up.:yesnod:

    I was going to say the toilet paper.

    That actually happened to me last week only the lady didn't ask for money. Thought about helping her out with the difference when she started taking things off and was embarrassed. Except I didn't know if I had enough money to cover my own purchases. :eek:

    I was thinking more along the lines of a leaf. Wasn't it hot sausage?

    Should his purchases have been everyday items such as milk or bread then, in all probability, I would have obliged him.

    But too many put too much importance on alcohol here and I have no intention of supporting that lifestyle outside of my own.:wink:
