    Heh, nearly posted that this morning myself. 10 fucking quid.

    I dunno... maybe a grand in a "can't touch it till you're 18" account wouldn't have been too much trouble no? And a tenner for sweets now.

    Well, they only made 11 Billion last year, so it is understandable. They can't even afford a door that locks.

    It's probably the equivelent of the four cans of Haze they went through the last time they left it open and a tramp fell asleep in it.

    They should have prosecuted the nosey little bastard for trespass.

    Or given him more than a fucking tenner, but definitely not just 10.

    Number of people at local branch who understand the meaning of the acronyn 'PR', and who recognises that they've just missed a huge opportunity to not only assure their customers that they take security very seriously indeed, but also to show just how much they appreciate the help of the locals:

    Big fat fucking ZERO.

    What a bunch of mongtards - hope they get fucking burgled down to the very last cent next time (and no, this won't cost customers a bit - insurance).

    Headline should read.

    Annoying ADD child wanders around opening doors he shouldn't touch whilst incompetent parents continue shopping oblivious to inherent dangers of neglecting young children.

    ... and in other news, grumpy internet forum users continue to lay the blame of all the worlds evils squarely at the feet of small-children families. :)

    Though I probably wont be using the mongtards insult, I'm with phAge on this one.

    10? What a message to send out to the wider community. Missed opportunity to show the wider potential customer base that being the world's largest local bank means more than a London PR agency fee.

    Next time offer tours of the bank for any late night revellers.

    8/10. Better than ...

    10 is a lot of money to a 5 year old. The important thing isn't the amount of money he was awarded, but the fact that he was rewarded. The most important thing the kid'll remember when he grows up is that he was rewarded for his good deed: not the amount of money he was given.

    All you complainants seem to be suggesting he wasn't given enough money as a reward, so what's the correct amount?

    I'm complaining that the staff didn't see this brilliant opportunity to make a serious PR-statement, which would cost them next to nothing compared to the goodwill it would produce in the community.

    Like I said - mongtards.

    Seeing as he went in to play with the toys, 50 quid in Toys R Us vouchers would have been enough.

    One million pounds.

    Good deed? He wandered off unattended and opened a door! This story could have been boy gets trapped in bank due to faulty door. Or boy sets off bank alarm by accident.

    He might also remember that bank security is shit and grow up to be a thief.

    I sound grumpy. I am glad he got ten quid and that he is ok by the way!

    It was obviously left open on purpose, how else are they going to round up enough 5 year olds to fill a basketball court?

    I'd say a grand in a savings account would be appropriate, followed by a short speach about investing in the future, etc.

    Makes everyone look good and shows that no 'good deed' (yes, I know, ADD kid, unattentive parents and so on) should go unrewarded.

    It's zero or a considerable (i.e. not ten quid) sum, isn't it?

    It's the same when payrises come out. On occasions, I've had payrises that amounted to 50 a year before tax. Just don't fucking give me one, I'm more offended at the pitiful lip-service raise than I would have been at none at all.

    Not just North Yorkshire. Catford is a fucking dive! It'll be happening to a bank near you soon.

    You'll see kids wandering around with broken noses and all the banks will have face imprints on the doors.

    It counterbalances the middle class tossers who fiddle their house insurance.

    Nevertheless, I suspect that if the Bank hadn't given him any money at all, this thread would never have been made. It's as soon as the possibility appears that everyone starts clamouring that it should be more.
