46-YEAR-OLD Tom Logan can turn any conversation around to how much he earns.
Logan, who earns £60,000 doing something with computers, demonstrated his remarkable gift during a recent dinner party.
As the other guests were discussing cheese, Logan chipped in: “This cheddar is fruity and rich. I suppose I’m relatively rich too. I mean £60K plus excellent benefits isn’t a fortune but it’s a fair old whack.”
Logan’s friend Stephen Malley said: “I mentioned fixing a bracket on the wall for my television. He paused for a moment, then replied, ‘In terms of brackets, I’m in the top 5% of UK earners’.”
Malley added: “I genuinely hope he gets made redundant.”
However Logan denied being obsessed with cash: “I don’t do my job for the money, I do it because I find it interesting. But if they pay me well, like somewhere in the region of £60,509 per annum, I’m not going to complain.”
He added that it was his 46th birthday next week: “Which is funny really, because 46 plus 14 is 60, which is how much I earn every year in thousands of pounds.
“That equals a healthy disposable income.”
