Stanley Baldwin - Bridal Bed

"An embarrassed newlywed employee came to

[Stanley] Baldwin and told him he had broken the bridal bed. Baldwin said it could be repaired free at the family ironworks, but the man feared it would make him the laughing stock of all his mates. So the broken bed was brought to the back door of Baldwin's house at night, wheeled through the hall the following morning, and taken across the road for repair as if it were Baldwin's own."
