Frank the adventurous dachshund was in the dog house today after jumping onto a bus and making an 18-mile trip to the seaside on his own.

The mischievous mutt vanished from his home earlier this week, sending devoted owner Michelle Ballard into a blind panic.

The four-year-old pooch had strolled down a nearby road in Colchester, Essex, England, before hopping unnoticed onto a bus bound for the seaside town of Clacton.

Michelle hastily arranged a search party with friends, fellow dog walkers and schoolchildren to try and find her much loved pet.

Meanwhile Frank was enjoying his day trip on the no. 61 bus before being noticed by a fellow passenger who, after chatting with the driver, agreed to take him to his home in Clacton.

Later that night the good samaritan's family spotted a Facebook appeal for Frank's whereabouts and were able to arrange a reunion.

A relieved Michelle said:

"I thought a bus driver would have noticed and not let him on but maybe he boarded when someone was paying."
"Luckily, there was a kind gentleman called Michael who offered to take him back to his own home in Clacton.
"He took him in for the evening and was going to take him to the vet in the morning but his family spotted the post on Facebook."
"My partner Jonathan picked him up at about 7pm."

Frank was taken home and reunited with Michelle as well as best friends Charlie, a two-year-old sausage dog, and Freddie, his two-year-old human brother.

Michelle added:

"He is a valuable dog and you hear some horrible stories about situation like this. We were so lucky it was such a kind man who picked him up."
"It is completely out of character for Frank. It is the first time he has done anything like this in his life."

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
