Middle class family makes rare appearance on front porch

A MIDDLE CLASS family have been spotted relaxing in front of their house, in a clear breach of social convention.

The Logan family, who live in a fairly fancy cul de sac, spent 12 minutes on their front porch yesterday even though it made them look a bit unemployed.

Tom Logan said: “As a middle class man I like to get home from work and run straight into the house, so that the neighbours don’t think I’m loitering around like people do on council estates.

“Yesterday though their was a patch of sunlight on the front steps and it just looked so tempting.

“I could feel the neighbours’ eyes on us but it was worth it.”

Logan’s wife Anna said: “I don’t think I’ve ever been in front of the house before. It felt like we were in a BBC drama about a plucky working class community where people smoke cigarettes and talk to each other.

“After nine minutes though I began to worry that others might see us doing a non-aspirational activity, so I said loudly ‘we’d better take the kids to their competitive sport club’ and dragged everyone back inside.”

Every building in London to be a Pret A Manger by 2020

PRET A Manger has announced plans to open its ten millionth London branch by the end of the decade.

Pret currently owns around half of all buildings in the capital, with the rest of them split between Costa, Chicken Cottage, and Foxtons.

A Pret spokesman said: “Some Londoners are living more than four minutes from a Pret, which is shocking and unacceptable. Nobody should have to rely on food they make themselves with their greasy, untrained fingers.

“By 2020, every Pret will be serving hot drinks and snacks to people on their break from working in a different Pret.”

The plans include a rollout of spinoff stores, including Pret a Nursery where children will be entertained with facts about sandwiches.

Donna Sheridan, from Finsbury Park, said: “I want a bit of variety in my cafes, which is why I sometimes go to the Pret next to my office and sometimes to the Pret across the street from my office. When I’m feeling lazy I go to the Pret directly beneath my office.

“I don’t actually like Pret, but the only alternative is to go to a Chicken Cottage or Foxtons and they don’t sell crisps in Foxtons.”
