Bobby Thape (14) has suspiciously asked his dad for £1 this morning, before disappearing in the direction of the corner shop.
Having somehow managed to find a convenience store greeting card for less than a pound, Bobby then thoughtfully crafted the words… from Bobby at the foot of the printed message.
With no time to waste, Bobby gave his dad the card; still slightly moist from the freshly licked envelope.
‘Result! Got one for less than a pound. 75p – got a freddo with the change,’ said Bobby.
‘He won’t see that pound again. I’ll just say I gave it back to him, if he asks,’ added Bobby.
