Know-all has to get ready meal box out of bin to read intructions

A KNOW-IT-ALL who thought a ready meal would be so simple he wouldn’t need instructions has had to fish the box out of the bin.

28-year-old Tom Booker bought a microwaveable shepherd’s pie on his way home from work and just assumed he would know how to cook it.

He said: “I took it out of the shopping bag and just ripped the box off and lobbed it in the bin. Then I thought, ‘How the hell do I actually cook this?’

“I would like to apologise to that ready meal box. I’m sorry I threw you away like that without even taking the time to read you.

“Yes I’m eating a ready meal for my dinner, so things are obviously not the best in my life at the moment, but I shouldn’t have taken it out on you.”

The ready meal box replied: “That’s fine mate. Just pierce the lid all over, cook for 5 minutes, stare. Cook for 2 more minutes and you should be good.”

Logan then repaid the box by making sure it went into the recycling so that it could maybe help someone else one day.
