Story on Global.
Buddy cycling around the world was stopped in Savona for a coffee.
He and his partner leave the bike leaned against their support van as they grab a coffee.
Then they jump in the van and drive away forgetting about the bike.
After a few km, they remember, go back and surprise! The $4000 carbon fibre road bike
is no longer there.
Now he's on the news crying about how his bike was "stolen". I'd have a lot more
symapathy if he fessed up and said "We fucked up" and stopped calling the person who
found a bike in a parking lot a thief.
