THE Bank of Mum and Dad has had to call on assistance from its grandparent bank after a year of substantial losses.
Bank of Mum and Dad directors Roy and Sheena Hobbs helped their youngest child with a house deposit and then pissed away their remaining savings on cars and cruises, triggering a plea for emergency capital from the Bank of Nan and Grandad.
Roy Hobbs said: “Sheena fancies getting a couple of those expensive little labradoodles, and I need a new set of golf clubs and a front axle for the old Rover I’m restoring in the garage.
“We’ve agreed an emergency loan from the Bank of Nan and Grandad, on strict terms that we visit them every other week. But once we’ve got the cash that will go out of the window.”
He said: “Begging for money that your parents have worked hard to accumulate is what family is all about.”
