TPR was so hungry that forgot his manners completely and fingered one of the sausage rolls on a plate inside the gazebo. None of us had permission to enter the riverside property after our long walk, let alone picnic on the food that we found there. The owner was furious to find strangers poking around her garden.
‘That will be £12!’ she demanded of TPR.
He looked up in horror, finally realising that he had committed a huge breach of etiquette. There was nothing for it but to hand over all the coins in his pocket. I calculated that he only had about £4 in total. So, in the end, he had managed to bag himself a sausage roll bargain.
