    It was once. It was in tesco

    and in all fairness, it wasn't a near death experience but I take pride in having this experience, as horrendous and crushing as it was. I was paying at the self checkouts. As my change came out I turned to pack my stuff and when I turned, my £2.50 had vanished. Hmm.
