Man inconsolable as he finds old pound coin in his car ashtray


A 36 year old man from Kent, who felt that he’d checked everywhere, has driven into work this morning, and discovered an old pound coin in his car ashtray.

Peter Thape from Gillingham has worn a knowing cloak of confidence all weekend, having thought that he’d checked everywhere for signs of the now outdated coin.

But a news item on his car radio at 8.07 this morning reminded him about the emergency stash in his centre console ashtray.

‘I pulled over, and was repeatedly sick on the side of the road,’ said Thape.

‘I felt better than this when we lost our first child,’ added Thape.
