As always, we round off with a tale of foolishness and stupidity. Last month it was a HR Manager who was shot at and an employee who was sacked by AI. This month we have a delivery driver who clearly wasn’t au fait with current social mores.

A delivery driver for a kebab house in Cheshire messaged a woman whom he had just delivered food, to tell her she was beautiful and cute. The driver had taken the contact number she provided the takeaway and texted her off his own phone. Not only is this a clear violation of the customer’s data protection it is also an unwanted advance that the customer did not order with her kebab!

The driver has since been dismissed for the offence. He won’t be driving off happily into the sunset with this customer.
