We had a guy who had a lot on night shift here. He didn't know what they were when he ate them. He was in the head for 8 hours that night.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit this, but I had the same thing happen to me about 10 years ago, though not with the gummies. I had a bag of Estee sugar-free butterscotch candies and ate the whole bag before bed....few hours later I wake up in the most agonizing pain, I actually called the Poison Control Center, then asked my neighbor to take me to the ER at 1am. There, they did an x-ray of my abdomen, then left me lying on a table for a couple hours, until I was finally able to release the gas (it actually showed up on the x-rays, lol). Then the guy comes back and I'm like "I feel better now, you can release me"

I like to tell people I'm the only 40 year old ever who had to go to the hospital for eating too much candy

You know how all ER doctors have a collection of X-rays of interesting cases, mostly involving elongated objects being "accidentally" stuck in a sensitive area (those patients have an amazing knack of falling onto said objects in the shower)? Yours is probably being passed around as a more PG version.

I have had a few businesses ask me to write reviews on Yelp, so yeah, they're gushingly positive, but I was REALLY happy with the services rendered. I don't think they would have asked me otherwise. Is that still okay?

I actually write more positive reviews than negative, especially in regard to a business, but nothing is ever totally great...if a review has only good things and no negatives at all, I don't believe it. I tend to disregard the really gushing reviews and the really negative ones Sometimes, especially with businesses, the really negative ones are actually written by competitors.

Absolutely. Personally I tend to trust a company that has some negatives views over one that is all glowing.
