A new award

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I’ve not an inductee into the ‘200Weeks Scum of the Week Hall of Fame‘, and I don’t have one today. Instead, I’m going announcing the first entry into the ‘200 Weeks Hero of the Week Award’.

Step forward one Arron Large, a street cleaner from essex who handed in a gold Rolex watch he found when he was cleaning drains. The watch turned out to be worth some £21,000.

The very next day Arron found 3 more watches, including another Rolex, in other drains just up the road from the first. He also handed these in.

Police think the watches are probably part of a haul of stolen property and may have been dumped or hidden by the thief who may have forgotten which drains he put them down – how sweet would that be if it were the case?

There is no truth in the rumour that the entire population of Chalkwell in Essex have been seen dangling magnets on bits of strings down every drain in the town.

    ‘drain technicians’ are fine people.

    I wouldn’t have thought Rolexs’ were magnetic. I’ve never owned one though.

    Wouldn’t it be hilarious to see hoodie scumbags wasting their own time for a change. It’d keep them quiet and you could use the CCTV footage at their next visit to the Job Centre when they say they can’t work.
