A MAN moving to London cannot wait to drop the best part of a fiver on a cup of tea.
Tom Booker, from Shrewsbury, told friends that while he was excited to take the next step in his accountancy career, he was even more excited about pursuing his passion of paying far too much money for basic conveniences.
Booker said: “Maybe I’ll get a cheese and pickle sandwich at the same time to round it up to a tenner.
“I’ve made a list of things to do in my first week, like pay £7 for a pint, £80 for a theatre ticket, and £30 for a 12-minute taxi ride. I wonder how much a haircut will cost? I’d better take a fifty with me just in case.
“But most of all I’m looking forward to posting endlessly on social media about how great this city is, just for the benefit of my friends back home.”
When told he would have to spend two thirds of his monthly salary to share a three-bedroom flat in Shepherds Bush, he said: “That is completely ridiculous. Fuck that, and fuck London.”
