Man furious after imaginary argument based on unlikely situation

A MAN has been left furious after imagining a confrontation he might have if a hotel room was disappointing.

Roy Hobbs has booked a room at The Acorns in Dorset for a weekend with his wife, but is now angry after thinking up things that could go wrong and how he would stand up to management if they did.

Hobbs said: “I can see myself kicking off if the telly doesn’t have all advertised channels.

“They might possibly make some excuse like ‘the aerial’s down because of a storm’, then I’ll remind them that I’m paying for a  TV, so they can provide that or compensate me.

“If they refused, or made excuses, I would throw a chair at the air conditioning unit.”

He added: “That said, we’ve stayed there four times now and it’s always been very good.”

Hobb’s wife Jenny said: “He’s always thinking up hypothetical arguments and describing how they would play out.

“They are often about his work or public transport, but there was one where he was on a space station and a fellow astronaut had eaten all the powdered ice cream.

“If that happened, he wouldn’t have it.”
