A MAN has decided that he has earned the little treat of a warm pre-mixed can of gin and tonic on the bus home.
After a tough day slaving away in the Next men’s clothing section Nathan Muir has rewarded himself with a mild alcoholic buzz on the 219 home, because why not?
He said: “I popped into the Co-op on the way home, spied it and thought, let’s live a little. And I’ve got myself a Spicy & Fragrant Chicken Panang as well. It’s Saturday night, bitches.
“I don’t mind saying I feel pretty elite up here getting my drink on, unlike all these wage slaves. I pity them as I sip this refreshing tepid G&T until we go over a bump and it spills on my shirt.
“For them it’s commuting. For me it’s a party bus, like a magic carpet taking me direct to my door. Well, apart from 20 minutes uphill. Anyway I wouldn’t be able to do this if I had a car.”
Sophie Rodriguez, aged 19, said: “Some dirty old tramp was drinking on the bus. I think that’s sad. I’ve made it into a meme.”
