He seemed to suddenly turn nasty for no reason, as he then began throwing the 3 cartons of eggs out of the Bus window, she was very angry with him and called him a stupid mean old man!
Some months later, he again was seen smashing eggs outside a grocery shop, and this time he was arrested by the Police, (as everybody had heard the story of That crazy egg basher man) and he was taken into custody. At the station where they began interrogating him, it was only then that the truth emerged, 5 years previous he had been rescued after being stranded on an island for more than 30 years marooned there by a shipwreck on an island rampant with vicious crocodiles and lived in daily fear of being eaten alive. He used to awaken every morning with fear in his heart ever since he lost a leg not long after his initial arrival there, and now had a daily habit of breaking any eggs he found to safeguard his own future. So a mean old man became a hero of survival that had been badly effected by an ordeal no one even knew about!
