    Bummer!! I probably would have turned my head and cried. Hope he's alright and you find another score. That's really sad.

    So, was it just the case that got damaged or the whole machine? Did he try to see if it was OK? Bummer!

    Sorry to hear about what was almost yours... Hope the guy is ok...

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I'm so sorry but the way you told that story is sooooo funny. I can just picture this happening to me.
