Friends worried for millennial who's only visited five countries this year

THE friends of a millennial who has only had two holidays, two city breaks and a trip to a Spanish music festival in 2023 are considering an intervention.

Hannah Tomlinson has sparked concern after going almost two months without leaving the UK, apart from attending Benicàssim in July, and friends believe they have a responsibility to say something.

Ryan Whittaker said: “It’s not normal. And if we don’t say anything then we’re enabling it.

“Look, we’ve all done stints at home. After my fortnight in New York last year, I didn’t see an airport for six straight weeks. But you’ve got to pick yourself up off the floor and book your next trip, you know?

“But this year Hannah’s only had that week in Mexico, the weekend in Vienna, a hen weekend in Florence and her usual Ibiza trip, which barely counts because she’s there every year.

“When the rest of us have been to Paraguay, Kyoto, Reykjavik, Dubrovnik, Dubai, Santa Fe, Mauritius and Hue City in that time, to name a few, it’s pretty clear she’s got a problem. Looking at her Instagram made me cry.”

Tomlinson admitted: “I know, I know. I’ve been so busy with work I’ve neglected trips that are vital for self-care. But weirdly there’s all this money in my bank account.”

It may be personalised but it's still crap, says recipient of thoughtful gift

A WOMAN is less than thrilled to be shackled to an unwanted piece of tat for the rest of her life because it has her name on it.

Emma Bradford cannot feign excitement for a naff personalised photo frame from Not On The High Street because she will be doomed to display its tacky gold lettering on her mantelpiece until she or the person who gave it to her dies.

She said: “It’s crap but thoughtful, which is the worst kind of gift. It means I have to pretend to look grateful and I’ll feel like a heartless bitch for slinging it in the bin. Even though that’s where it belongs.

“Why does a frame need my name on it anyway? In case I forget who I am? Also it means I can only put a photo of myself in it, which makes me look like a narcissist.

“I’m cornered into using it though. My friend will be looking for it every time she comes around, and I can’t even dump it off at a charity shop because it’s so bloody distinctive. What a considerate, chintzy piece of shit it is.

“I guess I could re-gift it. All I have to do is find a hapless victim with the same name as me, then I can pass the curse on to them like in The Ring.”
