Any thing upset you lately? See the news about the Ryanair passenger who ate his winning ticket because they did not carry en grads worth of Euro's on board!
How do you react when things do not go the way you want?

I reckon it's perfectly ok to go off topic Ron.  That's what "Bench Banter" is for isn't it?  Off topic subjects can result in good interesting "banter."  Craique, (pronounces crack) I think it's called in Ireland.
No, I didn't see the news item you mentioned - it sounds a bit far-fetched to me.  I'll have a go at finding it on the BBC website.  It wouldn't upset me anyway - the only person the idiot has hurt is himself.
As to what I do when things don't go my way - I simply swear to myself and move on.  You can't win 'em all can you?

Yep, it's there on the BBC site so it must be true  Look here if you haven't seen it yet.
I have say that I'm still a but dubious about it.  It sounds like a "Sun" story to me.

one word  .....muppet .  How can anyone expect people to carry a winning like that , or do they and the cabin crew were splitting equally LOL .Personally I would be more concerned about how much longer the flight would be and getting a taxi to the prize office .  Was he sectioned !!
Got to laugh , I have about £40 quids worth of scratch cards in my van dash , building them up !! buy I have probably spent £200 to get it .

I had to laugh at this one too..................
A German farmer lost 10,000 Euros when it was eaten by his goat.

But he got it back after having a vet carry out emergency surgery to recover the cash.

Martin Radlberger, 34, from Rosenheim in Germany left the 100 Euro notes that he planned to use to buy a tractor on the kitchen table when he went to answer the phone.

But when he returned he saw his nanny goat Steffi just finishing off the last crisp new note.

He said: "I know I shouldn't have left the cash on the table, but I was only gone for five minutes to answer a phone call. When I returned I saw how my goat had the last note in her mouth."

What a plonker, I would not expect cabin staff to have 10,000 euros on the plane waiting for someone to win, and then to eat the ticket, well how stupid.

I've never eaten a scratchcard, never had my goat or any other animal eat one, never lost one and never bought one!

I heard a rumour that there will be lottery type numbers printed in the magazines and you check against them on here every month, prizes range from a carpenters pencil to a fully fitted out workshop!!
Then I woke up!

I saw this one as well I thought the guy was being a little rash.
Unless his name is Blane or Davenport. There are a few "Magicians" who could eat the evidence and then produce it a while later. Quite an easy trick that one. I used to do something similar with Cigarette papers as a kid. I could even turn the ciggi papers into an Egg.
Mind you I wouldnt buy a Scratch card on a plane just in case we didnt arive. That would be a terrible waste of money wouldnt it.
