Crumb-down - Funny Biscuit Story
A Town Hall 'crumb-down' has been ordered because thieving visitors keep stealing the councillors' biscuits. Bosses at Canterbury City Council, Kent, UK, are fighting back by telling staff to hide the tea trolley during meetings to stop people purloining the biccies.
An unnamed council source said, 'People coming to sit in on the meetings see the trolley and just help themselves. They think it is something that the council lays on for free, but the biscuits are for the councillors not members of the public.'
Footnote: Interesting how we always believe an 'Unnamed source', but always never the official spokesman.
