We all have conversations stored in the back of our heads to be brought out in social settings like dinner parties, nice little anecdotes where we will still be talking without really saying anything. My goal at most dinner parties is to get people to give me a little space so I have more elbow room to shovel food into my mouth. This is my one & only anecdote. I tried to link to the exact article, but I could no longer find it as this happened years ago & wasn't the most ground breaking court case ever. I wish I was making this up, but it was in several weird news sources at the time. If I get the facts wrong, I apologize, but this is how I tell the story at dinner parties or any other time when I can get people to listen to me.
A patron was kicked out of a bar in England because he wasn't wearing any shoes. He did the logical thing, went outside & tied two slabs of pork to his feet that he had won at a fair during the day (See how much England rocks? They give away pork.) The man walked back into the bar, probably proud of his inventiveness, slipped & fell. He broke his leg, sued the owners of the establishment & won $32,000 in damages, because they didn't have a sign warning against pork shoes". Beware of the pork shoes. What are your dinner party anecdotes?
