A BUILDER has confirmed plans to abandon his van in a pub car park for the foreseeable future.
Tom Booker has just purchased a new Transit for his building work, which he will drive to the pub later and then leave there until it has moss growing on it.
Booker said: “I’ve had ‘TB Building and Plastering Services’ stencilled on the side and put a nice new ladder on the roof rack, now I can’t wait to drive it to the pub and leave it there forever.”
Booker’s van will join four other builders’ vans that are permanently parked outside the Rose & Crown pub for no apparent reason.
He added: “People will look at it and wonder if I got pissed and lost the keys. But it’s more complicated than that.
“The ways of the builder are strange to normal people, like how we do a job for half a day and then ditch it, leaving all our stuff behind and not answering our mobiles.
“But we are a deeply spiritual trade with our own customs that seem obscure to the outsider, like a Native American tribe that drinks a shitload of tea.”
