PARENTS of a child known for losing school clothing have decided to have him permanently sewn into his new school jumper.
Nine-year-old Joshua Hudson has proved himself so incapable of holding onto his expensive uniform that his mum and dad have elected to make it non-removable.
Martin Hudson said: “He just isn’t capable of bringing his jumper home with him. We’ll be out at all hours, trawling playing fields, corner shops and local quarries. It’s the most valuable thing we own, apart from the car.
“The few times he thinks he does have it safely in his bag, it turns out to be something that is obviously not a school jumper, like some girl’s jacket or a bin liner.
“So he’ll wear it all the time now, every day, like a cartoon character. Yes, he’ll have to wear it in the bath but we’ll give him a run around outside afterwards and he’ll be dry in no time.”
Sophie Hudson said: “If anyone thinks we’re being unreasonable, tell them to find out how f**king much a new school uniform costs. Then come and talk to me about ‘unreasonable’.”
