Oooops!














Remember your mother telling you not to run with scissors? Or to tie your shoelaces so you didn't trip?

Nag, nag, nag. Right?

Well, I bet this guy wishes he had gotten in the habit of doing so....According to USAToday, an unidentified man visiting the Fitzwilliam Museum in England tripped over his unbound shoelaces, fell down a flight of stairs, and smashed a display of three Qing Dynasty vases into "very small pieces."

Yikes.

My big question is why the museum had the vases by a staircase anyway.

The FitzWilliam Museum is run by a bunch of overpaid nit wits.

Their layout is stupid...a big old house with medium sized rooms....the museum is on all different levels. Their tour guides only allow you 4 minutes per room.
(And I could not even bribe them!. Reminds me a LOT of the Sibbert Museum in Florence...another museum with a fabulous collection run by dip sticks)

Well, I guess that explains it! The same problem that plagues many organizations today--being run by "overpaid nitwits."

Thanks STAG!
