A Queensland farmer who was compensated after a nasty encounter with a greasy stray onion three years ago has welcomed Bunnings' new suggestion for onions to be placed under sausages during sausage sizzles.
Trevor, whose full name cannot be revealed due to a non-disclosure agreement, fell backwards after tripping on the translucent vegetable at a Bunnings store in Gympie, ABC reports.
The 65-year-old has since called ABC Sunshine Coast to show his support for the controversial 'rule', saying, "It is serious stuff, this onion thing".
Bunnings offered the man an ambulance after the incident, which he declined, but he later pursued the company for emotional stress after having an MRI scan to ensure his hip wasn't damaged in the fall.
"I went to another Bunnings a couple of weeks after and I had a panic attack.
"Every time I go into Bunnings now I look on the floor. I look for onions."
