Man trapped in lavatory for FOUR days

This is one for the should-have-had-your-mobile-with-you folder, I think.

man trapped in lavatory for four days

The 55-year-old bachelor was trapped in the freezing cold “gents” at his bowling club with nothing but tap water to survive on after a door jammed behind him.

He spent most of the time in the dark, managed no more than three hours’ sleep a night, and was so cold that he had to put his feet in a hand basin of hot water in an attempt to stay warm.

I bet he spent many-an-hour thinking ‘why didn’t I just put my mobile in my pocket?’

I regularly think about when I might need my mobile with me. For example, if I’m putting stuff up in the loft, I’ll take my mobile with me. Just in case the ladder falls down, or something… and I need to call someone. OR if I’m going to let my parent’s dog out or something… just in case the door shuts or whatever, it’s always nice to have your mobile with you — in situations where you wouldn’t often take it (i.e. when you’re “at home”).

So. Let this chap’s experience be a lesson to us. Always take your mobile to the lavatory. Especially if you’re a member of a bowling club in Northern Scotland that doesn’t get much lavatory traffic.
