Contrary to belief, pink does not make all of the boys wink… It makes some very angry.
Andrew Walls was a patient at the Delaware Surgery Centre in October of 2012. 32-year-old Walls was having a colonoscopy operation for which he had to be placed under anaesthetic.
When the Dover native came round from the procedure he was shocked to find that he was wearing a pair of lady’s pink briefs.
Walls, who was an employee at the centre at the time, failed to see the funny side of the prank played by colleagues and is now suing for mental anguish, which according to his lawyer caused a loss in wages and earning capacity.
According to Delaware Online, Walls filed a civil damages suit at New Castle County Superior Court.
Gary Nitsche, Walls lawyer wrote: “The defendant’s extreme and outrageous conduct went beyond all possible bounds of decency”.
“When the plaintiff recovered from the effects of the anaesthesia administered by defendants, he awoke to realise that while he was unconscious pink women’s underwear had been placed on his body,” he continued.
“When the plaintiff initially presented for his colonoscopy he had not been wearing pink women’s underwear and at no time did the plaintiff voluntarily, knowingly or intentionally place the pink women’s underwear upon himself.”
