When I was working as a researcher (when we were actually allowed to do any work) this type of thing was most upsetting. Having to report on such matters.

Cardiac arrest - saw a shark perhaps.

Says he drowned. Fit bloke, cycled and did triathlons.

What happens to his clubcard points?

My uncle smoked fags all his life and got run over by a tram when he was 19.

I've said before that holidays aren't as good for your health as the travel companies would have you believe.

Time off work, on the other hand, is definitely a good thing.

Not for him.

RosyLovelady - 15 Feb 2020 09:29:18 (#8 of 30)

He'd probably have been ok if he hadn't flown abroad and got involved in, er, trendy water sports.

Delighted_User - 15 Feb 2020 09:32:34 (#9 of 30)

I am not sure why this is is particularly newsworthy. Obviously it's very sad for his friends and family, but it's not an uncommon way of dying, and he's not a household name.

HouseOfLametta - 15 Feb 2020 09:33:56 (#10 of 30)

Tesco is definitely a household name.

RosyLovelady - 15 Feb 2020 09:34:07 (#11 of 30)

There are lessons to be learned.

Delighted_User - 15 Feb 2020 09:35:07 (#12 of 30)

Tesco didn't go into cardiac arrest whilst paddleboarding.

HouseOfLametta - 15 Feb 2020 09:35:30 (#13 of 30)

THIS TIME

RosyLovelady - 15 Feb 2020 09:36:56 (#14 of 30)

It's good publicity for the business. It'll bring in the sympathy shoppers.

CaptainBlack - 15 Feb 2020 09:37:02 (#15 of 30)

Put him in a lasagne. It's what he would have wanted.

returnofthepowermonkey - 15 Feb 2020 09:37:15 (#16 of 30)

Perhaps he could have compensated for his lack of fame with a more unusual manner of death. Too late now, though, sadly.

RosyLovelady - 15 Feb 2020 09:39:19 (#17 of 30)

There's an example of a lesson for retail-ly ambitious youngsters.

TenGorillas - 15 Feb 2020 09:40:29 (#18 of 30)

I know this will fall on deaf ears but really? a thread with jokes about this? A little decorum please people.

RosyLovelady - 15 Feb 2020 09:42:19 (#19 of 30)

He became Tesco's Head of Experience Design and Research in June last year.

Seriously, now: what is "Experience Design"? There must be someone here who has experienced it and possibly even made money from it.

widenation - 15 Feb 2020 11:38:27 (#20 of 30)

I guess it would mean overseeing the web/online shopping/social media/email experience as well as perhaps store experience as well.
