A Woman from Shropshire nearly made the error of standing on the bathroom scales with her slippers on, and getting a wildly inaccurate reading of her weight.
Fortunately, Murial Hislop (39) from Telford managed to kick off her slippers, and line them up neatly well away from the sensitive scales.
Hislop then managed another quick wee, stole the briefest glance of self-hatred in the mirror, and boarded the scales.
‘Oh no, I haven’t lost an ounce,’ said a disappointed Hislop.
‘Good job I wasn’t wearing those lead-shot slippers,’ added Hislop.
