High-flying career woman just wants to escape her family

A HIGH-FLYING career woman has only climbed the corporate ladder to escape her tedious husband and whining kids.

Emma Bradford appears to be highly motivated to become a major player within her field but has confirmed that what really inspires her is getting out of the house.

Bradford said: “I arrive early each day and do anything my company wants me to, from unpleasant redundancies to hostile takeovers, so they think I’m a tough-nut ball-breaker rather than someone who can’t be arsed to spend 25 minutes convincing a kid to eat a bowl of Rice Krispies every morning.

“In the past, when I’ve been in some stylishly anonymous hotel bar in Tokyo sipping a martini after a conference, I have wondered if I’d feel happier amongst the clutter and noise of family life.

“And then the pandemic came along and forced me into it and I realised I felt much more satisfied with my domestic set up when I two thousand miles away from it getting tipsy.

“Anyone who thinks savage corporate restructuring is tough has never listened to the Peppa Pig theme tune eleven times in one day.”

Tesco Metro changes slogan to 'because you can't be f***ed doing a big shop'

TESCO Metro has launched a new slogan reflecting the half-arsed shopping habits of its customers.

The catchphrase, which Tesco Metro’s customer base will not even bother to read, narrowly beat ‘for those who set their sights slightly higher than a corner shop’ to represent the nationwide chain of stores.

A Tesco spokesman said: “This new slogan perfectly represents the fact that our Metro stores are the last resort for disorganised pricks who would rather put up with high prices and a limited range than do a weekly shop like normal people.

“Whether they’re picking up a last-minute microwave dinner or buying a packet of chocolate Hobnobs and counting that as a meal, our customers are the most bone idle f**ks you could ever meet. And our brand that speaks their language.

“We thought about pairing the slogan with a funny gesture such as a shrug, like the way Asda adverts always had someone patting their bum, but why bother? In the case of these people, less is more.”

Tesco Metro shopper Carolyn Ryan said: “It’s good to see my slothful lifestyle finally represented in the media. Now if you excuse me, I need to buy a multipack of Scotch eggs for dinner again.”
