A man has resigned himself to the fact that his colleague has forgotten he owes him a fiver and is now unsure how to broach the subject.
The unfortunate series of events began on Thursday. Daniel McKenzie lent his colleague Ricky £5 for his lunch after he had left his wallet at home.
Ricky appeared to be grateful enjoyed a delicious Zinger Burger. He promised to repay the money the following day.
However, Ricky had to go and meet a client on Friday and then the bank holiday Monday meant that the two men were not in work again until Tuesday.
When they did meet, a full five days after the loan, Ricky behaved normally and made no mention of the borrowed fiver.
Daniel considered asking for the £5 back, but was not sure if he had left it too late.
He explained: “I don’t want to look like a bean counter. I’m sure he’s just forgotten. He’s as honest as they come is good old Ricky.”
He added “it’s only a fiver anyway. Who cares?” before laughing unconvincingly and mumbling something about a “thieving f***er”.
