Default WTF back in the UK

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

Department of Ineffective Excuses

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

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.

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.

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

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