Walking in same direction after saying goodbye 'most stressful thing possible'

WALKING in the same direction as someone after you have already said goodbye is the most stressful experience you can possibly have, experts have confirmed.

Psychologists said it ranked above losing a close family member, divorce, moving house and getting hit by a train.

Victim Tom Booker said: “I said goodbye to a colleague as we got out of the lift, only to have them set off in the same direction as me. It honestly felt like the blood froze in my veins.

“When I look back on it now, it feels like it happened to someone else.”

Psychologist Dr Helen Archer said: “There are a number of techniques you can employ if you find yourself in this situation. Try commenting on how awkward it is, pretending you have to go back for something, or jumping in front of a van.”

Rural pub adds second wine

A RURAL pub has doubled its wine list by adding a second option.

Alongside ‘white’, patrons will now have the choice of ‘red’.

Landlord Wayne Hayes confirmed the move came at the request of a new patron he hoped would become a regular. He speculated that the expanded offering may also drive foot traffic and attract more passing custom.

Hayes said: “It’s time we moved into the 21st century and admitted there’s nothing weird about wine, or indeed anything else from France. If people want to drink it, that doesn’t automatically mean they’re sinister.”

Asked about a marketing strategy, Hayes said: “I’ll probably write the price on a fluorescent bit of cardboard cut into the shape of a star and stick it somewhere nobody can read it.”
