He's a fairly strong lad if that's 36kg.

36kg is hardly heavy, he was making a bit of a meal of it in my opinion.

What I can't understand is why the truck had a bucket of gold sat on a pallet just inside the door of the truck with no security.
I would hope the insurance refuses to pay out.

Come on. How many times have you thought: 'Should I send it registered delivery or just bung an second class stamp on it'?

Give Trump's golden lift, it wouldn't surprise me at all if his bathroom is similarly adorned. Oh. Wait......

I call it initiative. The van driver was downright negligent......

I bet the van driver is kicking himself now. You can't have people stealing things worth that amount of money, but a sneaking part of me wouldn't mind if he got away with it.

In his position I think I'd pay somebody to show me how to put Hollywood style make up onto my face, and assume a different identity to try and avoid being caught.

I feel a little bit sorry for the security guard, it will probably take a long time for him to stop feeling awful.

I take it that you make a habit of posting your gold in 36 kg packages then?
