As the last leaving user, I forgot to flip switch feeding treadmill and all stepping machines in our local fitness center at work. Surprisingly, they all will be on first thing in the morning tomorrow

I've had my name misspelled so many times in the UK, that I started calling myself "Bob". Then someone misspelled it as "Rob".

One of the misspellings of my real name was Porridge. Porridge!
