A SUDDEN heavy downpour left a man with no choice but to eat raw fish for lunch.
Julian Cook was shopping in Manchester yesterday when torrential rain forced him to seek shelter in the local branch of YO! Sushi.
He said: “I stood in the doorway for a couple of minutes. The staff were staring at me as if to say, ‘what are you playing at? Do you want some raw fish or what?’.
“I was starving. Like proper starving. It was either eat there or get dangerously wet.”
He added: “It was like an out of body experience. I sat at the counter and a few moments later I saw my hand reaching forward for a plate of little pink and white parcels that I assumed was the food.
“All around me was the chatter of YO! Sushi diners. I cannot stress strongly enough how much shit they were talking.
“Anyway, I ate the food and it was not hellish. I’ll probably end up going back. Why? Because I don’t know who I am anymore.”
