Argetinian taxi driver Santiago Gori found £21,600 in the back of his cab. After a few days of searching he found the elderly couple and returned their money. A website has been set up to thank Mr Gori for his exemplary behaviour.
What a stand up guy, a gentlemen even.
Faith in human nature restored a little today.

Run by a bunch of fucking idiots who seem to be clueless as to what's going on around them. Orange, you are wasting resources, time, effort and customers with practises that are more in line with Dickens than the 21st century.
I've been with Orange for 9 years and never had a bad word to say against them, until now. Not only will they not let me change my phone (even though my personal situation has changed massively and I wanted to give them more money, lots more money) but they've now stiffed me for massive roaming costs, even though I couldn't use my phone properly abroad.
On top of that, I reach the customer service department (how about looking up the phrase Customer Service and finding out exactly what it means you donuts!) who have been utterly useless - where did you get these people from?, the fallout of the banking industry? - In fact, they've been worse than useless because they have proven to me that Orange don't give a shit about loyal customers.
So here it is Orange, you have lost me and countless others with your behaviour. I'm leaving and when I exit your shit arse customer services team are going to get the works from me. I wouldn't feel a twinge of guilt if you go under before the end of the year.
Well done France Telecom for ruining a perfectly good company, a sterling job done all round.
Here's to your demise.

Just because you can do it Geoff (and the rest of you are no better) doesn't mean that you should. I can't actually believe that you thought this was correct. You're more of an idiot than your picture portrays, well done for that at least.
Every 10 plus years this country plunges through the floor, you take none of the responsibility and we move on. Governments change and the whole 600 + of you in Parliament get even more money out of the taxpayer.
You have no shame, you're disgraceful and above all you don't seem to see how you're not a fault.
Yes the system of MP's expenses needs immediate change, and there are a number of routes to make this easy for both the public and MP's to understand.
What also needs to change is the attitude of MP's - it cannot and will not continue in the vein that it is now.
Using tax payers money to pay for your 3rd house. Your 3rd house for fuck's sake!
I need not say anymore. For now.

However, one thing is certain. You do not, under any circumstances, go to Afghanistan to wean yourself off drugs.
That's tantamount to a gambling addict going to Vegas to "sort his head out"
The story doesn't really hold up does it?
Binyam, your friends and family should have given you sound advice, which you would have done well to take on board.
Sympathy for your plight, yes I have some but really, there were some extremely bad decisions on your part.

Is it any wonder that Sky Sports has done so well when given that this is the competition?
Grade saying that steps are in place to make sure it doesn't happen again.
How the fuck did it happen in the first place? why weren't steps in place to stop this. Are there steps in place to stop this happening with other live events?
I don't remember weird ad breaks coming on at the wrong time when other live events have been broadcast.

Which, I may add, I agree with wholeheartedly, and have raised the same points over the years, mainly to deaf ears.
However he does raise one point which I don't agree with. "Customers don't write letters about this; they don't complain to the press. They just disappear."
Now this just isn't true. They blog and in most cases they do send emails of complaint, although these are normally directed at the company and not the press.
In most cases the problem lies with usability of the site. E-commerce sites will improve but I believe that marketers should sit down with both UE specialists and IA's and work out natural stopping points within sites and work together to ensure that when customers do leave the site, then they can work out why and if required tweak, fix and enhance.
If it's easier to go the the shops, then people will.

What the fuck were they thinking when they made this? It is an utter turd of an advert. In fact it's offensive.
I would complain to the ASA, but it would only serve to increase further air time.
One final rant on this, am I the only one that got the feeling that the wheat leaving to be a digestive came across as gay?
I blogged a while back regarding Tony Hart recently having to give up drawing after suffering two strokes, something he said was "the greatest cross I have to bear".
On Sunday, aged 83, Tony Hart passed away.
He was an inspiration to many and the world will be less colourful without him.
My thoughts are with his family and friends.
