    Best excuse I've heard...!

    I was reading the news and came across this story. The Hotel was fined £7,000 because the chef was dyslexic and "couldn't read the use-by dates". So he couldn't tell that food was mouldy and had gone off and there were flies in the kitchen... Link in first post!

    BTW He will only pay £67.50 and £8.07

    Why will they only pay that amount?! Really? Or am I missing a joke?!

    The chef obviously cannot see or smell the food lol.

    Now its not hard is it even if he cant read the dates, work out it smells off and has mold on it! Should have got fined at least double and sent back to school, He cant of been that dyslexic or how would he have filled in the order forms to get the food.

    It's too early for my brain to work pmsl

    Dyslexia isn't a problem with numbers, It's dyscalculia
