Man in big trouble for believing that his wife wanted ‘No fuss’ on her 50th birthday


A man from Somerset is in massive bother after foolishly following his wife’s fiftieth birthday strict instructions.

Peter Thape (51) from Portishead, has found himself trying to console his furious and disappointed wife, who has not stopped crying since their quiet restaurant birthday meal.

In the run up to her big birthday, Thape had listened carefully to his wife’s request not to make a fuss. So he did not order a sparkly cake, arrange a surprise party, or contact long lost friends, just as his wife had said.

‘I’ve asked the guys down the pub. None of us can work it out,’ said a confused Thape.

‘I might pick her up a Madeira cake from the Shell garage on the way home. See if that helps?’ added Thape.
