A MAN’S friends are sick of him telling them about money-making schemes that are either fatally flawed or already exist.
Office worker Martin Bishop regularly comes up with business ideas for which there is no demand, like a service allowing you to send emails from cashpoints.
Friend Emma Bradford said: “Martin bored us to death in the pub by going on about a website that would let people rent out their clothes to strangers.
“I pointed out that most people just buy their clothes and it would be an administrative nightmare for very small rental fees. He said I was just a sheep-like worker drone who would never be rich.
“It’s like his idea to put headlights on trainers for people running in the dark. He wouldn’t accept that you can already buy torches designed for that and not look like a knobhead.
“And let’s not forget the time he thought it was a totally original idea to set up a website where you can read local restaurant reviews.”
Bishop said: “Today in my coffee break I thought of a visor that straps to your head so you can wear your glasses in the shower.
“My friends won’t be laughing when I set up my creche for cats whose owners are at work. Even if I only charge £5 a day per cat I’ll be coining it in.”
