    One time at the bulls head pub I accidentally ended up on stage doing poetry when I thought it was karaoke . All I could come up with was that my heart was like a mushy pea. I still cringe.

    Do any of you have embarrassing tales?

    Yes. I am indeed new. I am Mike Rolls and I just want to share my life goals with you all. If you need proof you could ask my old university professor...Prof Reding. haha. This is a joke you see. One time I went for an interview and misspelled "proof reading" on my CV. The interviewer thought it was a reference called Prof Reding. Boy could I tell you some tales from that Interview!

    Wait, so under 'references' on your CV you tried to put 'proof reading'?

    That doesn't make sense.

    Well the funniest twist on the interview story is that it was for a plumbing job. I know nothing about plumbing. but I only got the interview because I accidentally put A LEVEL BATHS !

    Can you believe that

    please do not be unkind to me.

    But that doesn't make sense either, A-Level baths is not a subject, surely your interviewer would have known that, particularly if they worked in the plumbing industry?

    Your capers are ill-thought out, Mike.

    Please do not be unkind to me, I haven't said boo to a goose to you and you are being unkind

    but i have a tale from the next interview. When asked about if i have ever led a task based team. i told them about my online gaming of leading a team of 6 very big personalities. I told them how every one wants to be the wizard but you have to surround them by fighters. The interviewer was VERY impressed with the analogy he obviously thought this was really clever and i was smart. then i told him not to spunk his magic that i was sometimes an elf and if a colleague was struggling then to use a healing wind and the whole thing fell apart. Pretty funny right

    Wrong.

    This is the worst anecdote I've ever heard - and I once had to listen to a lengthy one about someone buying the wrong potatoes.

    But if you want a really wacky story underdunn get ready for this. I already made mention of this in my first post, but this is the wackiest life goal with me ...Mike Rolls to date.

    Ok so me and John do a pub crawl every Tuesday it starts at 4 pm and not a minute sooner. This is because from half 3 onward local school kids walking home headmaster threatened to call police after john puked on a child.

    In our flat anything goes as we are unlikely to puke on a child, except once...well three times. that's why we are no longer allowed to baby sit Johns niece.

    I am sure Nikki and Underdunn are curious of our drink of choice, which is black sambuca.
    Here it is here

    At the turf Tavern its a shot of it for a pound of 6 for a fiver.

    We normally start of with vodka and coke then move to the hard stuff around tea time. We usually black out around this time so I only have flashes of memory like putting a banana in a drink.

    and going up on stage thinking it was karaoke but was actually the bulls head poetry slam. I should have just got off the stage but instead I came off with "my heart is like a mushy pea" the audience didn't react well and John puked on me.

    We never did find the karaoke you know, but its like I always say...its not the destination its the journey..



    Aww you know what I would have loved to sing dont stop believing.
