AN INSUFFERABLE twat who argues the toss about every minor thing regularly gets 15 per cent off in shops, he has confirmed.
Martin Bishop is unable to eat a meal or stay in a hotel without haranguing the staff with a list of spurious complaints, and is usually given money off just to make him go away.
He said: “I don’t understand people who pay full retail price when all it takes is 20-25 minutes of making everyone hate you to save yourself a tenner.
“I’ve never got anything off the internet without a fortnight of emails claiming it was damaged, I spend two hours threatening to cancel my broadband every month, and yesterday I got a free latte because I was insulted by Starbucks’ misspelling of my name.
“Granted I’m naturally disagreeable, but when will everyone realise that minutely examining a shirt for loose stitching then causing a huge song-and-dance about it is the way forward?
“Sometimes it’s lonely being the only one demanding to see the manager. Ah well. All the more discounts for me.”
Colleague Helen Archer said: “Martin has proved that being an arsehole is its own reward. But there is a price, in that you have to be an arsehole.”
