    Default Fracas at Scotch Corner

    We witnessed some guy go completely ape-oh last night when we popped in on our way back from Darlo as a result of our drummer needing a Neville.

    Upon entering the lobby, we were immediately made aware of a loud, expletive laden cacophony emanating from an as yet unidentified individual who duly revealed himself in the act of performing an involuntary pirouette with the carousel of Salmon postcards in the doorway of Smiths which he sent careering down the concourse into some unfortunate young woman with a baby buggy.

    Then he hot footed it across the foyer and vaulted over the counter of the "Just a Minute!" snack bar and tried to cram a beef patty down the throat of the bewildered youth who was in the process of cashing up the day's takings.

    Fortunately, some burly security operatives appeared on the scene before he could do any serious damage and chased him off the premises.

    I wouldn't mind betting it's the same guy who is reported to pop up behind gamers at the fruit machines and offer unwanted advice over their shoulders.

    These places attract some serious headcases...

    I seem to remember a different poster with an obsession about motorway services....

    Sadly these are not on a motorway (just yet) and so unused that would be an understatement....

    It's the penchant for inaccurately describing journeys that does it for me.

    Darlington to Ebchester via Scotch Corner?
    Not the way I would go.
