Man furious as girlfriend asks stranger for directions

A MAN is furious after his girlfriend ignored his decree on asking a stranger for directions to their hotel.

After an hour and a half of walking in circles around Barcelona city centre with heavy luggage, Nathan Muir’s girlfriend Sarah Thomson decided to just bloody ask someone.

Standing outside a tapas bar the couple have passed by three times in the last 15 minutes, Muir said: “She’s making us look like twats. We’re not lost, we’re just in the process of finding our way.

“If we ask someone to help us every time we’re uncertain about where to go, we might as well not bother going anywhere new.

“For me, this is as much a Ray Mears-level survival exercise as it is a mini-break and I’m not relying on some patronising local bastard to tell me where my hotel is.

“I’ve got a map on my phone, it’s just loading in a weird way – and these streets are laid out really badly”.

Thomson said: “We’re not chartering undiscovered lands, we’re trying to find the fucking Ibis.

“We’re going to wander around for hours this evening arguing about where to eat. Or maybe he’d rather we go down to the seafront and spear our own fish.”

People with loads of debt confident banks will return favour and bail them out

BRITISH households in dangerous levels of debt are confident the banks will return the favour and bail them out this time. 

Following warnings from the Bank of England about spiralling car loans and credit cards, UK households have said there is no need to worry because they have a mate who owes them big time.

Nathan Muir of Nottingham said: “Quid pro quo, right? You scratch my back, etcetera?

“We bailed those guys out to the tune of billions, billions and billions, while in comparison I’ve got £13,500 to pay on a Hyundai Tucson.

“We’re not even talking 10 years ago and some of them still owe us, so it’s not like they’d be handing over the cash. Just knock it off their repayments. Won’t make a dent.

“Yeah I’ve made a couple of mistakes, but it’s not like it was breaking the law like the LIBOR stuff, so no way I’ll be harshly punished. That wouldn’t be fair.”

A spokesman for the British Banking Association said: “Irresponsible bailouts are so 2007. It’s all about settling debts in full on punitive terms now.”
