WTF back in the UK
 
inspired by the thread started by Robin123 about ineffectual excuses in the 'trailer park'

http://britishexpats.com/forum/trail...xcuses-901207/

It was suggested that there should be a WTF thread for the UK, so here it is.. :lol:

For anyone who doesn't frequent the Trailer Park, this thread in the Trailer Park was the inspiration for the suggestion of needing a WTF thread for the UK.

That story has more to do with the stupidity of the person that released it than climate change.

Meanwhile in Scotland - a 64 year old man was reported as missing by his family. The last time they'd seen him was the day before, in his house. After a month's search involving police, divers, mountain rescue, dogs and volunteers the man was found dead. In his house. Where he'd been all along, dead. :blink:

I wonder where in the house he was? Strange story though.

You pair of buggers :lol:

Must admit, I've been wondering where he was too. Hope I don't die wondering :unsure:

Jogging should be banned?

That one certainly should be. Although he didn't 'knock her over' as the story states, she tripped on his foot/leg. But the fact that he passed her coming back and wouldn't even acknowledge her when she tried to speak to him is appalling. Hope he gets nicked and sent down (I'm trying to adapt my language to my new country) :lol:

I'm fairly certain that's his arm pushing her.

Looks like the trip to me, but I don't suppose it really matters, the poor sod still ended up in the road.
