A 39 year old man who has been urged by his wife to get rid of his unused weights set, has claimed once again, that he’s still using them.
Peter Thape from Rotherham has not used them since the original two weeks of excitement died down after their purchase from Argos in 2001.
After discovering that their usage hurts his back, and cracked the living room ceiling, their only other function has been that of the 5kg weight which successfully keeps open the wonky bedroom door.
‘Forty next year; be using them every day – time to get in shape,’ said Thape, in genuine denial.
‘She can’t complain. She’s got a box of pretty coloured weights sat in the back of the wardrobe,’ added Thape.
