A MAN has spent some of his two percent pay rise on some slightly better quality petrol.
Martin Bishop, a 38 year-old office manager, said the extra £40 a month after tax had made him feel ‘prosperous and secure’.
Replacing the ‘Ultra Juice’ nozzle, Bishop said: “I’m not going to let it go to my head, but it does feel exceptional to put some very sophisticated petrol into the tank of my Peugeot 106.
“I’m not even sure what Ultra Juice does, but it has a racing car on the handle, and racing drivers are very rich and confident.”
Bishop then treated his wife Jane to a three course meal at TGI Fridays, which he described as ‘moderately enjoyable’ once she had ‘finally agreed’ to stick to the 2-for-1 menu.
Bishop’s father-in-law, Tom Booker, said: “I’m delighted that he’s now slightly less of a blight on my family.”
