A WOMAN with a spare gig ticket has offered it to her best friend at full face value plus booking fee.
Nikki Hollis bought two tickets to see the pop-dance band Hot Chip, but after her boyfriend pulled out she approached childhood friend Emma Bradford with the mean-spirited offer.
Bradford said: “Nikki called up and asked if I wanted to come and see Hot Chip because she has a spare ticket.
“I don’t know who Hot Chip are but I said yes, partly to be polite and also so she didn’t have to go alone. Then she asked me to transfer £32.50 to her bank account.”
Hollis said: “That’s what I paid for it, and that’s what I need. I could probably charge twice that online.
“Even if she doesn’t particularly want to go, I need to get all of my money back with not even a fiver off. This is the 21st century people, I need that cash for rent and cocaine.”
Bradford said: “Apparently the price includes a £2.50 booking fee, I’m not sure if that’s from the original vendor or just so Nikki can get some fags.
“I’m an upbeat person but I am losing my faith in human nature.”
