    Bob was lost in the woods.

    Fortunately, they had a compass.
    Unfortunately, his glasses were right at the bottom of his bag and he couldn't actually read the compass!

    @Chloe_Scope C'mon, get in the spirit.

    Unfortunately, the compass was broken.
    Fortunately, he had pricked his finger on the needle and could follow the trail of blood back home
    The End. YAY >:)

    Fortunately, he was an underwriter for said insurance company, the building for which housed his office is apocalypse proof and could recover a copy of his policy which was also apocalypse proof as was his car and the route to get there.
    Unfortunately, the keys to his car and office were liquified in the heat of the fire.

    Fortunately he was smart. Unfortunately he was blind and couldn’t see the front door. 
  • Hart86Hart86 Member Posts: 394 Pioneering
    Fortunately his friends rallied around to help!

    Unfortunately, after he moved into his new house, Bob discovered a problem...
  • thespicemanthespiceman Member Posts: 6,408 Disability Gamechanger
    Fortunately the new house had been adapted to suit his disability. After all you can lead a horse to water but a pencil must be lead. lol.

    Plothole Alert: @April2018mom "Unfortunately he was blind and couldn’t see the front door"
    Correction: "Unfortunately he became blind when stumbling into the plothole and hitting his head and couldn’t see the front door"

    Unfortunatley, due to a missunderstanding of his disability thinking he had been blindsided by a squirrel after Bob had accidentally crushing one of its nuts when stumbling out of the woods and the squirrel retaliating by kneecapping Bob, the builder (Bob, the builder - see what i did there  >:) ) of his new home mistakenly installed a state-of-the-art secruity sytem with a retinal scanner

    Confusing here crushed his nuts must have bought tears to his eyes or am I reading this wrong .

    Am a sensitive gentleman.

    Fortunately he was a superhero had amazing powers and used them to help himself.  To cope with any of his new gadgets in the home.

    Hello @GettinOlde Just hate to see some one wasting food like nuts. That is all . Very important part of the diet.

    Excellent for health.  I wonder why Squirrels run around all the time . Probably because of eating nuts.

    Something I eat all the time.  Love PNB  Walnuts, Almonds in my sweets and pudding.

    Take care.

    Unfortunately when he went shopping because of his blindness . None of the tins he could not identify.   Had no braille signs marks on the tins.

    Took him ages to shop.

    Fortunately, one of the gadgets he had previously received is a bionic assistance dog who could read Braille on his behalf.
    Unfortunately, Muttley had not been fully charged.

    The kind stranger then led Bob in his mobility scooter (newly adapted with radar and Forward Looking Infra Red) towing Muttley behind to the charging point in the car park.
    Unfortunately, vandals had wrecked the charging point.

    Unfortunately, the whole experience made him feel quite queasy and as soon as he got home he was sick on the cat and the poor thing ran away!  :smiley:

    Fortunately everyone else was out. Unfortunately there were tell tale stains on the kitchen floor. So he had to spend several minutes scrubbing hard. 
  • Chloe_ScopeChloe_Scope Scope Posts: 10,652 Disability Gamechanger
    Fortunately he felt much better and managed to settle down in the living room with a cup of tea and his favourite TV programme (with audio descriptions on, obviously!) which was very relaxing.

    Unfortunately the radio conked out in the middle of his favourite Iron Maiden song, so he had to sing it himself!  :smiley:

    Unfortunately, Muttley, his bionic assistance dog,. howled along with him, causing the neighbours to think there was an impending nuclear attack, causing them to panic and drag Bob and Muttley with them to the local bunker.
    Fortunately, the bunker was well stocked.

    Unfortunately it also had a rat infestation and Bob was afraid of rats. 
  • GettinOldeGettinOlde Member Posts: 495 Pioneering
    Fortunately, Muttley had a high powered laser in his tail and killed the rats,

    Unfortunately, the last rat ran around the bunker door frame causing Muttley to weld the door closed before finally getting the rat and depleting his dedicated laser battery. - they now need to devise an escape plan after discovering it was a false alarm.

    Unfortunately, Muttlley's power pack is regulated  by a small kryptonite cored chip, somewhat limiting Bob's strength and other super powers..

    Fortunately, he had a packet of Scott's porridge oats on him and a small stove in the bunker to heat them up and he ate this, giving him new found strength to open the door and let him and Muttley out.
