    Slovenia MP quits after stealing sandwich

    A member of the Slovenian parliament has stepped down after stealing a sandwich from a shop in Ljubljana where he says he was ignored by staff.

    Darij Krajcic told local media he was annoyed at being "treated like air" and decided to test the supermarket's security by walking out.

    The theft went unnoticed but the ruling Marjan Sarec List (LMS) party member insisted he later returned to pay.

    Mr Krajcic has apologised, saying he regretted his "social experiment".
    It's funny, but at the same time many politicians could learn from this.

    This is the kind of stuff that I used to deal with at my old job:

    RYANAIR PASSENGER WHOSE NAME AUTOCORRECTED TO LUKEWARM FACES £100 BILL

    A Ryanair passenger is challenging a €115 (£100) fee for changing his name back to “Luke” after autocorrect changed it to “Lukewarm”.

    Luke Bradley from Wicklow in Ireland faces the name-change fee after a booking mistake on a €50 (£43) ticket.

    The airline has a 48-hour cooling-off period in which booking errors can be corrected free of charge.

    After that Ryanair imposes no fee for putting “minor errors” right, but in common with other carriers generally limits this to three letters.

    Ryanair says: “Full name changes will still occur a name-change fee.

    “In certain situations it may be cheaper to purchase a new flight, rather than paying for a name change.”

    Mr Bradley took to Twitter to publicise his discussion about the mistake: “Gabi the senior customer service rep insisting Lukewarm is a name.”

    He included a screen grab of the heated live-chat conversation in which he wrote, in exasperation: “My first name is down as Lukewarm Bradley. I DIDN’T ENTER that. It’s not even a name.”

    Mr Bradley told The Independent that Ryanair had been tepid in its response: “It’s outrageous they can’t change this.”

    A spokesperson for Ryanair said: “It is each customer’s responsibility to ensure the name on the booking matches the name on their passport and we offer a 48 hour grace period to correct minor booking errors.

    “This customer requested a name change nine days after making the booking.”

    In January the personal finance organisation Money Saving Expert accused Ryanair of having a glitch in its reservation system which changed passengers’ last names to that of the lead traveller.

    More than 160 passengers claimed the low-cost airline had automatically changed their companions’ surnames after booking to match that of the person buying the tickets.
    I've seen people's names auto-corrected from Paulette to Toilet, or from Dimitry to Dirty.

    Lesson number one: turn off the damn auto correct when buying stuff. You can turn it back on when you go back to texting

    Lesson number two: check your tickets as soon as you have booked it, not two weeks later. Many airlines have a "grace period" of between 24 and 48 hours for fixing minor stuff.

    Lesson number three: cheap can be expensive. Ryanair prides itself on flying planeloads of people who hate them but fly with them anyway. When booking a low-cost airline, be ten times more careful.

    Lesson 1 should be "turn the blasted thing off permanently as your 5-year-old kid probably knows how to spell better than that stupid computer/phone"

    With the state of the schools these days, surely you jest. You don't think they actually teach them useful things like reading, writing and arithmetic any more, do you?

    Dust Devil sends inflatable bounce house airborne in China

    “The nature of this accident is also not yet known, as it is still unclear whether … it was an incident partly caused by human factors,” said Shi Jinghan, an official with the county government who told media that two children died at the scene of the accident, the Post reported.
    About the only "human factors" that could cause a strong dust devil like that are maybe every visitor there letting one rip at the same time...and maybe all the hot air that comes out of this gasbag's mouth
