A COUPLE cannot tell if the pleasure of a friend’s company outweighs the hassle of accommodating his allergies.
Following a particularly fraught dinner party, couple Tom and Charlotte Logan are considering ditching Stephen Malley for his own safety.
Tom Logan said: “We’d invited a few friends around, and on the day Stephen piped up saying he couldn’t eat nuts or beans or something. So that was my nut loaf out the window.
“Suddenly we were scrabbling around the freezer aisle in Sainsbury’s, trying to find something that wouldn’t cause Stephen to die, which would have soured the mood a bit.
“I wouldn’t mind going to the effort for our cooler friends, it’s just that Stephen doesn’t really bring much to the table personality-wise. He can be a bit of a prick actually. One of those people where it always ends up being about him.
“He’s always having a go at me for being on my phone, but if he went into anaphylactic shock he’d expect me to call for an ambulance. It’s that sort of hypocrisy I can’t stand.”
Girlfriend Charlotte added: “I think we need to be more patient with Stephen. Anything that stops Tom from serving his god awful nut loaf can’t be all bad.”
