You know you’ve always wanted to do it, but in this case the manageress of a hotel in Nottingham, accidentally replied to an email from a complaining customer calling him a ‘tw*t’. I mean those ‘Reply’ and ‘Forward’ buttons are awful similar aren’t they.

Apparently she meant to forward the email from a customer demanding £100 compensation after a waiter spilt coke over him, to her bosses.

Possibly putting “Can you help me answer this tw*t please?” was a bad choice of words.

The hotel company, insist it was a typo, and she meant to put ‘twot’ (Apparently: Total Waste Of Time) instead.

Also, since my life is pretty free from excitement this week, we have the Italian town of Canneto di Caronia, which was evacuated earlier this year after electrical equipment started to explode for no apparent reason.

Experts have concluded that the most probable cause for the equipment randomly combusting to be that old devil static electricity, but they’re at a loss as to where exactly its coming from.
