Well, I’ve just seen the funniest news story, that could only come out of that quirkiest of countries; Italy!
That’s right – the hypnotoad hint may have given it away. By the way, all hail the glory of the hypnotoad :-p
I’ve just noticed on the BBC News website, a story that makes me think of Derren Brown and Little Britain more than anything.
This just goes to show the power of NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming). I prefer to call it this than hypnosis.
I’d love to have been that poor woman’s boss. Can you imagine the conversation when she tilled up:
Manager: “You’re Â£800 down!”
Worker: “Huh, how’d that happen?”
Manager: “Well you must’ve stolen it”
Worker: “No, I’m telling you I really don’t know how it’s happened. One minute I’m talking to this guy and the next the money has gone.”
Manager: “Oh right, so I’m supposed to believe that this guy blanked your mind, like he hypnotised you or something.”
Security Guard: “Ummm boss, you may want to have a look at this CCTV video!”
