The lass and the baby that she left Geordie holding earlier

A man in Newcastle was literally left holding the baby today when a strange sequence of events unfolded in Newcastle today.

Geordie Decant was in McDonalds in the main shopping centre in the northern city, famously the home of three of the main characters in the immensely popular 'Auf Wiedersehen Pet series.

He had just sat down having been given his Big Mac, large fries and a regular diet coke when he was approached by a woman carrying a baby. He tells us what happened next:

"I was just having a bite of me burger when up comes this lass like and asks us to hold her bairn (Geordie slang for child, also used in Scotland). So I says fine pet and I take the youngster while she heads off somewhere like.

Well after ten minutes I was still holding the kiddie like. My friend then told me that I had been left holding the baby and I had to admit he was right" laughs Geordie.

"But it was all right in the end 'cos the lass came back and took the bairn. So all's well ends well" laughs Geordie again.

The amazing story got us thinking. Have you ever been put in the position of a famous saying? Say, like up shit creek without a paddle or maybe you've actually thrown the baby out with the bath water?
