Just a funny little story we read whilst idly flicking through the Daily Mail that somebody had left on the bus this morning. We repeat, left on the bus.

It's all pounds, shillings and pence to us...

Sitting comfortably? Let’s begin…

Kaylie Coomber, 20-year-old care worker, asked her bank for an extra £50 on her £200 bank overdraft.

‘I rang them up three days ago to ask if they could extend my overdraft by £50,’ said Kaylie Coomber. Kaylie with a ‘k’, a ‘y’, and an ‘ie’.

Apart from the fact it’ll barely stretch to a Diptyque candle (quite enjoying ‘Chene’ at the moment), we applaud her frugality.

‘I needed the overdraft because of the time of year – it’s just before Christmas and I have to pay my car tax and MOT.’

We’d rather have the Diptyque.

Anyways, the bank – Alliance and Leicester – obliged. Less frugally. They offered her an overdraft limit of £84million.

Hahahahahahahaha, etc.

Oh, maybe it was the salt shaker exploding on the mozzarella and tomato salad last night, and the sodium going to our heads but, you know, laughings.

‘They sent me a letter saying, “We are pleased to confirm that we have arranged an overdrat limit of £84,480,090.00 on your account.”‘

Hooray!

‘But when I phoned the bank to tell them about it they didn’t apologise or find it funny.

‘I am a bit disappointed I am not going to get my £84million overdraft.’

  2. If they’ve offered it her in writing, isn’t that legally obliging?

  4. No, it’s not legally binding, and even if it was it’s an overdraft and would have to be paid back anyway, you fucking div.
