Blundering Barclays bank staff go home... and FORGET to lock up or set the alarms

They say that a fool and his money are soon parted! Can you believe that a bank as big as Barclays could do something as stupid as leave their doors open and go home?

"Bank customers had to stand guard after a branch of Barclays was left unlocked for almost four hours. Even the cashiers' service area and the route to the vault were left open to passers-by in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, on Saturday afternoon. The blunder was only noticed when a customer went into the branch to withdraw cash and found no staff present. Customer Lesley Phillips and two other customers investigated further and discovered the entire bank in The Broadway had been left unlocked."

Do they really deserve our money? Does this kind of ineptitude really warrant a bank like this one that makes 3.5 billion every quarter to be called a "major high street bank"?
