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 ï¿½13. 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 ï¿½5. Instead of watching some comedy, we had a few drinks in the pub (about ï¿½8 worth) and I caught the bus home. I didn’t have the right change so had to spend a ï¿½2 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 ï¿½7.
I’d budgeted ï¿½15 for the whole eveningï¿½ and I ended up spending ï¿½30. On cabs.
I think I might need to start a ‘stupid plonkee’ fund.
