    What's your problem? Conundrum No 4

    In the last few of weeks we've played you a piece of tape featuring people we met on the street with conundrums. We have had the cat dilemma, a woman had trust issues with a friend's husband & an atheist couldn't decide whether to go ahead with a daughter's communion. John Bela Reilly went out to the streets to find another conundrum for you.
