A wry view of life for the world-weary

Irony Of The Week (4)

manhole

Irony, I love it!

I came across this rather tragic tale this week concerning Crawley resident, Janet Faal. She suffers badly from agoraphobia and has done so for 10 years, having only just started venturing out with the aid of a friend.

Last Friday she was helping her friend reverse out of a car park and moved a wooden pallet – as you do – took a step back, you guessed it, right into an open manhole, breaking her nose and suffering a suspected fractured leg in the process. This misfortune is, she sniffed, likely to set back her recovery by years.

To cap it all, the site, seemingly, belongs to the owner of JP Supplies which sells safety clothing to the construction industry. You couldn’t make it up!
