Took our kids on holiday in term time and got fined anger

Bristol Post: Family return from holiday and are shocked - SHOCKED - to discover that you really do get fined if you take your brood out of school during term

Pub tap water anger

Runcorn and Widnes World: All this chap wants to do is watch Sky Sports in the warmth of his local pub, and the landlady has the NERVE to charge him 50p for the glass of tap water he's going to nurse for the whole afternoon

Bogus landlord anger

Portsmouth News: Women hand over £2,000 in rent to man believing he's the landlord

Spotter's Badge: Jonathan, and somebody else whose name I have lost. If it was you, please send an angry photo pointing at your computer screen.
