    The Schadenfreude & Stupidty Thread

    You've just got to laugh at this:

    BBC News - Lamborghini Aventador seized in police crackdown

    And this older story:

    BBC News - Luxury car worth £1.2m clamped outside Harrods

    And what a case of gross stupidity:

    BBC News - Car driven with bonnet up on A31 in Hampshire

    Please feel free to add your contributions.

    Lol! "The control room was also asked to send someone to retrieve a shoe stuck on a garage roof, and a woman called 999 when she feared a fox in her garden might bite her because it had "an odd look on its face"."

    Yeah, you gotta watch out for those foxes with odd looks on their faces.

    By Odin's beard! rofl!
    Shifty, them foxes. Shiv you at a moments notice, they will.

    I think partially these problems arise - especially with the old lady that threw her teeth at some dogs (albeit accidentally) - is that non-emergency numbers aren't widely published. Everybody knows 999, but I could only guess the non-emergency line for the police (Is it still 5050? I'm honestly not sure) and I don't even know if non-emergency fire or non-emergency ambulance exist (by definition, ambulances are for emergencies are they not? They're not hospital taxis.. And if your house is on fire then that's probably an emergency)

    Non emergency has been 101 for a looong time now. Adverts on TV, Radio, buses, news papers. Couldn't miss it really

    I've never seen a single advert for 101. Ever. Not on TV, not in the paper (which I read daily on the bus to work) and not on the radio at all (though I don't often listen to the radio)
    So not to be 'that guy'.. But I guess you could miss it :P
