    here`s another knotty legal problem to sort out ; not a theoretical one,but an actual incident ; a friend of mine was leaving the local branch of T****`s and putting his trolley in the park area,noticed a packet of chicken legs,in the trolley,under a discarded shopping bag.Taking a closer look and finding the receipt,it was obvious they had been bought some 25 minues earlier,and the customer had overlooked them.He then picked up the receipt,and chicken legs,and put them in his own shopping bag. He was spotted by a T**** employee,and the store detective was involved,threatening him with dire consequences unless he returned the chicken legs. My point is this - the articles had been paid for,admittedly not by him,and the original customer was long gone,so why is he being hassled in this way ?? A solicitor is currently looking at his case....

    sorry about the sh***y headline,but I got frustrated trying to type in a question,and getting loads of "similar questions"arrrghhh!!! With the ever-increasing price of petrol in the UK, and the cost of motoring going up,plus a more green attitude toward motoring,I`ve decided that this will be the last (short season) my Countach will have for a while;I`ll lay it up,in deep sleep until things improve,or until I win 100k on the lottery. My question is this,as a replacement sports car,which would you choose from the following list,as a top three - MGB circa 1973,Triumph GT6 1972,Lancia Fulvia 1978,TVR Tuscan 1972,Reliant Scimitar 1978,BMW 2002ti,FIAT X19,FIAT 500 Abarth.As you guess,I am a classic car nut,and I need to down size for the reasons mentioned above!!!Any other suggestions as to what I might choose ??

    my next door neighbour recently went to Cyprus to visit his daughter,and son-in-law (who is in the army).He had an enjoyable week there,living in her house on the army base,but his son-in-law was away most of the week,coming back on Monday.They get on really well with each other,and went out for trips,to Paphos and Akrotiri,but on the Tuesday,when he had to come home,she wanted him to stay until Sunday,costing another £60,losing the £90 already paid for the Tuesday flight.Added to which,his spending money had run out,and his wife wanted him to come home,to go back to work,and do overtime,etc.He took the decision,to say his boss wouldn`t allow him any more hoildays yet,and even had an imaginary phone chat with his "boss",to say no more time off.He didn`t want to simply say why he couldn`t stay,to his daughter,in case she felt offended and hurt.He feels really low and depressed a little,having to deceive her,how can I help him??,what can I say??,

    okay here goes ; you are in a shop,opposite a bank,when an armed robbery takes place,with shots fired indiscriminately.As the robbery progresses,a foot patrol arrives,and attempts to handle the situation.At this,one of the officers is shot dead,and the other wounded.An armed unit arrives,and one of them takes up position in the shop in which you are now trapped,due to the crossfire outside.You hide in the back of the shop,keeping your head down,but the armed officer is then hit,and seriously wounded.You go to his help,stabilisinghis condition,and after calling for help over his radio,take his assault rifle,to cover the approach of paramedics and other officers,You then shoot at the bank,killing one robber,and wounding another.They then surrender,and at the subsequent enquiry,and inquest,how would you stand legally??? one element in your defence might be,that you were ex-forces and know how to use,and handle firearms??? this caused quite a stir at a party recently,when I posed this !!
