stupid plonkee fund?

Filed under: budget — plonkee @ 7:42 pm

I have a confession to make.

Last night I was supposed to meet up with some friends at 6:30pm to go to a comedy club. Unfortunately we have a new starter at work and we were doing some welcoming drinks for him which I didn’t realise clashed. I ended up having one drink with my colleagues and leaving at 6:20. I then had to get a cab to the comedy place as its about 3 miles away from work, I arrived at 6:45pm and this cost me �13. Sadly, we didn’t get in to the comedy club as it had sold out before we got there (this wasn’t my fault) saving myself �5. Instead of watching some comedy, we had a few drinks in the pub (about �8 worth) and I caught the bus home. I didn’t have the right change so had to spend a �2 coin. The worst part is that I got home at midnight to discover that I’d left my house keys at midnight, had to walk back to the office (takes an hour), pick up my keys and then I got another cab back home, costing �7.

I’d budgeted �15 for the whole evening� and I ended up spending �30. On cabs.

I think I might need to start a ‘stupid plonkee’ fund.
