Here we are again dear Roamlers, this time to share with you funny (or sometimes embarrassing, :D) moments some of you have experienced.
Watch a staff member drop the entire box of bananas? Check!
Bump into another shelf trying to get a good angle? Check!
Hilarious things have happened to these Roamlers, who are the true main characters of this piece.  Their stories follow:

I was photographing the bananas in Tesco and a kid asked me if I was taking photos because I liked banana leaves so much. Alice S.

I was taking pictures as unobtrusively as possible but I was approached by staff members. I thought I’d have to explain myself but instead, they started chatting away, asking how I was doing, they hadn’t seen me for a long time, etc. I didn’t have a clue who they were and after contemplating trying to wing it, finally admitted I couldn’t remember them. Even after they explained we used to work together, I still couldn’t remember! I usually pride myself on remembering people so I was quite mortified and blamed it on age! Lindsay N.

I was in a relatively small shop, and the shop owner was watching me. He saw me take a photo, and came over and started shouting at me for taking photos in his store! As it was one of the first ones I did I was really nervous, so I abandoned the task and ran away! He came running out, probably thought I was a criminal!!Louise P.

I was taking a picture of the scratch card position and a sweet lady thought I was from Camelot and pronounced It could be you, pointing at me. When I looked at her she gave me a cheeky wink and walked off!! I didn’t imagine what she was referring to, lol. How bizarre it was. She had such a cheeky wink I dare guess what she meant but she was about 90, bless her lolAlan M.

A lady had parked her trolley in front of the bananas and I kindly asked her if I could possibly take a photo and if she would mind moving to the side, which she did. She then asked me what I was doing and I said I’m a banana enthusiast. She said… ohhhh, looking extremely confused hahahaha. Jodie G.

Barry and I tried to do the perfect packaging task, but Barry submitted a photo of his thumb, oh how I laughed 🙂 Helen T.

I had several funny looks from people walking by wondering why I was trying to take a photo of the bananas. I overheard someone say to his mate “He must be going bananas”. It made me laugh! Matthew B.

Many stories came through and it was difficult to choose just a few comments. That’s why this was just part 1 of the best comments of the task “What is your anecdote?”. Check the blog updates for the next round of good laughs. 🙂
