Some Flatmates Do ‘Ave ‘Em

with one comment

You try and do your flatmate a favour, and what thanks do you get?

Public humiliation in the local paper, that’s what.

Bristol Evening Post, 7 October 2010 (story):

Bristol couple left feeling empty after ‘hapless’ flatmate loads up wrong car

WHEN Faye Pounder’s flatmate offered to help her move house she gladly accepted, but his kind gesture went sour when he packed the wrong car, which then drove off.

Miss Pounder, 26, and her fiancé Ali Walker, 32, were moving out of their flat in Dove Street, Bristol, on Monday afternoon.

She had put all her important documents into one bag which included the car tax, her camera, her clothes and her laptop.

She and her former flatmate Paul Robins then made shuttle runs loading up her car, or so she thought.

When Mr Robins ran in to the house to tell her the car had been stolen she panicked until she came out and saw her Citroen Xsara Picasso in the same spot she had left it.

The awful truth then dawned on Mr Robins, who realised he had been filling the boot of another Citroen Xsara Picasso which had since driven away.

This article comes replete with what looks like a photo of a very serious and depressing car boot sale. Some excellent foldy-arms and Gazette Face action, mind you:

Miss Pounder said: “My flat mate is quite hapless and I think the other car was open and because it was the same make as mine and a similar colour he just assumed it was mine. He said there was an older person’s shopping trolley already in the boot so I don’t know why he didn’t click.

“We were supposed to be going to Alton Towers for my birthday but the tickets were in the bag. It’s all been a bit of a nightmare and not a very nice way to spend your birthday.

“I spoke to Paul and he just said he wants to jump off a cliff because he feels so bad.”

Well, maybe you should consider offering some reassurance to him instead of bleating on about it, you poisonous little witch.

Thanks to Alasdair Rawsthorne for packing this story into the correct vehicle.

    He must have really, really wanted to go to Alton Towers!
