CODE BROWN: Man stages dirty protest in Barclays

1 July 2014

barclays poo All hail the new hero of our times – the Robin Hood of the 21st Century. Yes, yesterday he did what every Barclays customer has been longing to do for years.

He SHAT IN THE BANK.

Staff and customers in Barclays in Andover, Hants, had to break out the Febreze after a ‘well-to-do’ man in his 40s entered the branch and er, made a deposit. Several large ones actually, all over the floor.

Customer Garreth McCarthy painted a vivid, yet amusing picture of the scene.

‘I wasn’t really paying attention until I noticed a foul, but unmistakable smell. I looked at the guy and he was just calmly walking around the bank - going to all the areas he could.

It’s quite clear what he was doing - he just had this calm but angry look on his face, as he walked around leaving special deposits on the floor. And then as calmly as he walked in he left. Staff didn’t know what on earth had just happened. The stench was unreal.’

An unreal dump strikes at the foul, rotten heart of commerce. Perfect. If anyone knows this man, send us an email, because we’d like to shake him by the hand. (After he’s washed them, obviously.)

The Daily Mirror have a darling little gallery of all the faeces, here.

    Good to see new forms of customer dissatisfaction are being endorsed. Next time there's a liberal hippy social engineering article on Bitterwallet, i'll be sure to pop down to their offices/homes and express my feelings over their carpet.
