I was listening to the consumer show on local radio the other day. This show helps people with all kinds of financial problems. A guy rang in and told the presenter that he was having a problem getting money owed to him for a job he was doing for the local council. He was complaining that they were always late with their payments and he was still owed for September and October. Apparently, the job was 'ferrying' two children somewhere in his car. I'm not sure where, as I missed the beginning of the call, but it sounded as though it was probably school. Maybe a special school, as it was some distance away! The presenter asked him how much he got paid for a job like that. He answered that, for example, the bill for September alone was ..........ONE THOUSAND AND SEVEN POUNDS!
The presenter remarked that, that seemed a lot for such a job, so, the guy explained that, not only had he the petrol to pay for, but he had to hire an escort to accompany the children, as they are minors! Guess what guys..........turns out, he is the kids GRANDFATHER! I wonder if he hires a bloody escort when he takes them to the park!
I also wonder who the hired escort is! Could it be Grandma? What a waste of our money!
