Smug People in Local Newspapers

I don't know what blog to put this one on

You might know that I run Angry People in Local Newspapers and Dull News in Local newspapers. Unfortunately, I do not run a blog called Smug People in Local Newspapers, which is where this story belongs. So that's why it's here.

London Evening Standard: Boy leaves his phone on the bus, smugness ensues

The headline just doesn't do any justice to the levels of smugness involved. Just click through and read the whole article. As [NAME-DROPPER ALERT] Danny Wallace [CLANG!] says: "Every paragraph is worse than the last", and he's not wrong.

Pure smug gold, of the type you'll only ever see in Chelsea if you look hard enough.

Whereas my daughter left her phone, two toy mice for her cat and a Christmas card on a National Express coach and only got the phone back because it had a tracker on it.
Some smug arsehole somewhere has nicked the catnip toys and the Christmas card. Well I hope they enjoy them, the dicks.
