A COUPLE has been torn apart by a cynical act of Pringles-based selfishness, it has emerged.
Tom Booker and Marica Billings split last night after an empty Pringles tube was returned to a kitchen cupboard.
Billings, 34, said: “I’d had a few of glasses of rosé and really fancied some sour cream and onion-flavoured Pringles. I was sure we had some, because I felt like they had been calling to me.
“Except, when I finally went to the cupboard, the tube was light. Too light. Something was very wrong.
“I shook it, tentatively, but nothing happened. ‘Surely he hasn’t,’ I thought. But, upon lifting the plastic lid, I discovered, to my horror, that he had. Tom had finished the Pringles and then put the empty carton back into the cupboard, like a fucking maniac.
“It’s not even like we could go out and get more, as we were both over the legal limit. We were marooned.”
Booker, 36, added: “Marcia once watched me pour what she knew was expired milk into my tea. Just two weeks ago, she threw a banana peel into the bin when there was no bin bag in there.
“I put the empty Pringles tube back in the cupboard deliberately. I think I wanted to bring everything to a head.”
