    We get so many stories. Every now and then something reminds me of one and it occurs, “I wonder what happened …?”

      Surely she can ask anyone to leave her property. I am amazed at how many people have so little to do or think about that they would carry on like that over someone they don’t know being asked to leave a restaurant they don’t know and taking the trouble to look them up and threaten them. Pathetic.

      Uber Eats; stupid, uninformative ads with annoying people in them.

    I can’t think why Burger King uses obese people in its ads. I don’t eat this sort of thing and am no skeleton myself, but if I was wanting to have a hamburger the idea that it would make me as fat as these people would be a real turnoff.
