You really have to laugh just a little.
A FORGETFUL married couple made the mother of all mistakes when they went on a day trip to France - but left their elderly relative in their car in Dover.
In scenes reminiscent from the hit film Home Alone, in which a couple only realise they've forgot their son while en-route to their holiday destination, the pair discovered they had left their mother behind when they were on the ferry half way across the English Channel.
Then again I wonder.....

Three people — including a 21-year-old woman — were injured when a man pulled out a Mac-10 sub-machinegun and opened fire at the warehouse in Capitol Way, Colindale, in front of 600 clubbers.

A WOMAN killed by armed police wrote in her journal just days before she met her tragic end that she had a story in her head which ended with her being shot.
The long-awaited inquest into the death of Sevenoaks' woman Ann Sanderson began in Gravesend with jurors being shown CCTV footage of the moments leading up to the 37-year-old's death.
Known as 'Tosh', Ms Sanderson was seen brandishing what was believed to be a handgun in the town centre in the early hours of June 11, 2007.
She pointed the gun at CCTV cameras several times, set fire to one industrial bin and attempted to set light to another.
At around 2.40am Ms Sanderson was cornered in the car park behind M&CO by armed police officers.
After a brief standoff she was shot and died from a single gunshot to the chest.
Her inquest is set to continue today.

The party drug mephedrone will become illegal from Friday, the Home Office said.
Following the completion of the formal parliamentary process today, the so-called legal high will be classified as a Class B drug with effect from April 16.
From that date anyone found in possession of mephedrone could face five years in prison. The maximum sentence for dealing in the drug will be 14 years.
The move to ban mephedrone, which is sold over the internet as plant food, comes despite the resignation of two Government drugs advisers over the issue.
Earlier this month, Eric Carlin followed Dr Polly Taylor in stepping down from the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD).
In a letter of resignation, Mr Carlin said the decision to ban the drug was made despite there being "little or no discussion about how our recommendation to classify this drug would be likely to impact on young people's behaviour."
He added: "Our decision was unduly based on media and political pressure."
Calls for mephedrone to be made illegal came as a series of reports linked it to deaths across England and Scotland.

Social workers have been criticised as “arrogant and enthusiastic removers of children from their parents” by the judge who takes charge of the family courts today.

In a separate case, on which Sir Nicholas Wall also sat, Lord Justice Aikens described the actions of social workers in Devon as “more like Stalin’s Russia or Mao’s China than the West of England”.

And Now It's Officially Spain's Turn To Take The Stage
Now that Greece is arguably an old story (though we've been fooled too many time to be certain of that), it's Spain's turn to take the stage.

Whether they can do it, and convince the bond market that they can make it stick is another story.
And unlike Greece, Spain is too big to bail.
