BBC NEWS | World | Europe | Man's arm trapped in train toilet
I swear people never fail to amaze me with their clinginess to material possessions. That would have just been my excuse to get an upgrade since I always procrastinate about getting one anyway.
Seriously though, I worry about some people...I think some might actually jump off a bridge in pursuit of their falling cell phone that they fumbled over the edge.
that would drive me round the bend.
That's all I have to say.
What a shitty way to lose a phone.
How did he call for help? lol
Around the u-bend no doubt!
Probably by loudly yelling "HELP HELP MY ARM IS STUCK IN THE SHITTER!" or whatever the French equivalent is.
Aide! Aide! Mon bras est coincé dans la SHITTER!
hmmph. I always thought "crappiere" was the French term.
Chiotte is french for toilet. However, a shitter is a shitter.
How utterly profound this statement is.
I thought it was bog standard not to take calls while on the toilet?
As it's a guy, he was probably trying to hold the phone between his shoulder and head, while fishing out the lizard.
I always find it quite amusing when I go into a public restroom and the guy in the next stall over is on his cell phone. It's about the only time I wish I could have explosive diarrhea on command.
I feel for firefighters sometimes. It's gotta be SO hard not to laugh while responding to calls like this.
Hell, I'd have a hard time not coming in with a chainsaw and telling him his arm has to go.
I bet it had crappy reception anyway.
Serves him right. I bet it was one of those really expensive internet phones too. You know, a Dingleberry?
At least he wasn't on an older train - I was travelling across Switzerland once and I could look down the toilet to the track flashing by below.
Imagine getting your arm caught in that.
