Christmas Present Blunder

Continuing the theme of stupid people I spotted this article on Ananova.

Season ticket gaffe

A Man Utd fan’s wife gave her hubby a £550 season ticket – four months after the Premiership kicked off.
She bought it last year but didn’t hand it to him until his 40th birthday earlier this month, reports the Sun. Her blunder meant the fan missed 11 games. To make matters worse, she also bought her son a junior ticket.
A United supporter who sits near the man at Old Trafford said: “A few of us noticed the seats were empty. His wife mustn’t know much about football. He must be gutted.”
