Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
That story meshes your love of a good killdozer piece with a peculiar trend on BBC and, I presume, other English news outlets for reporting incidences of “vehicle enters building unexpectedly” that kicked off a few years back. In addition to this one, bbc also carried a story yesterday about a car crashing into a child’s bedroom.
I can only assume these stories trigger some minuscule bump in readership that The All-Devouring Algorithms wish to amplify.
"Travelodge digger rampage driver 'DID get paid but didn’t check bank account"
That makes this so much funnier.
Not to piss in your chips but a) the account that the driver had been paid is disputed by the guy's family & b) the man in question was effectively homeless and was crashing on friends sofas. Mental health problems in low or unskilled construction, with extremely shitty conditions are rampant.
$800 may not sound like a lot to you, but to someone who is vulnerably housed and close to homeless, this is a huge deal. Laughing at people when they are getting fucked out of badly-needed money they're owed by corporations is a grade-A fucking dick move.
