I had cause last year to contact the police, long story, but we suspect a break in during a family weekend away in Ayrshire. It was my sons birthday and only when we came back, we counted at least £300 missing, including my sons Birthday money all the family had given him.
We contacted the police in Troon where we had been staying. They however passed it across to the local Motherwell police, who then came and visited me at home.
A Male and Female officer attended, didn't know anything about the case, the female officer couldn't be nicer, asking what happened, where, when etc., but the - we'll call him - mouth, immediately piped up to his colleague, bold as brass in front of me... "this happened in Troon, why are we dealing with it?"... I was aghast...I get his point, but really, bring it up in the car..I was livid, I was nearly going to just throw the mouthy one out my house there and then, only refrained to get the report filed for the insurance claim...which, incidentally, only returned £50...🙈 😤
