On occasion I stop in one of the 24 hr Tesco's after the show. Normally its to pick up a mag or something for breakfast. So thats what I did (or done) last night. Im a huge fan of the self service checkouts, although at times they go a bit nuts. So I was standing in line last night, around 1.30am wondering why there was only one of them in use.
Anyway, there was one guy in front of me who seemed to be having a bit of trouble. So being the polite gentleman that I am, I offered to help. Well heres the demented part of it. It was ROBIN feckin WILLIAMS. I nearly dropped my copy of Empire on the ground. Then after sorting out his litre of milk scanning issue, and this is off the charts...he turns around and says "Are'nt you the guy on the radio?". To which I replied, stutteringly "Yeah.....". "I thought I recognised the voice" he replied. I dont normally get star struck, but there was a moment when I said to myself "Robin Williams listens to my radio show". He said he's been listening in his hotel room on and off the last few nights and he's a big radio buff. He's here on a holiday (after Will Ferrell told him Cork was a great place) and decided to take a wander around due to jet lag. No minders, no entourage, nothing! Just him; a litre of milk and a few other bits and bobs. Demented!!!!!!!!!
