wanted: drinking buddy!
And before you say, “What a loser!”, this ad was posted by a loving son for his old father. Mike Hammond posted this ad (wanted: drinking companions to join elderly gentleman for a friendly beer at his local pub) in his village post office, and received lots of offers. Mike wanted someone to accompany his 88-year-old father Jack on visits to a southern England pub from a nursing home. Such a sweet lad eh??
Mike offered the lucky winner 7 pounds ($14) an hour plus expenses and, after sifting through the applicants, decided on a job-share. Drinking duties are to be divided between a retired doctor and a former military man. Mike told the press, “Dad’s now going to be going down to the pub several times a week — three with his new friends and twice with me. I want to give him some of his old life back.”
