How stupid are people these days? A ‘Ginger discount card’? Only an idiot would ever actually believe something so dumb is a legit discount car-
Oh wait, it worked? Well…damn.
Humanity has reached a new intellectual low.
Richard Macrae, 30, was given the the fake card for his birthday four years ago and has been using it ever since in bars, restaurants, cinemas and even with taxi divers.
The ginger joker claims to have saved more than £200 and claims people are always asking where they can get their hands on their own card.
The comic book illustrator said: “People have always given me stick for my hair colour, but now I’m going out three nights a week and saving a fortune. The joke’s on them.
“It comes out with me more than my bank card. My reputation precedes me, once I was asked by a security guard if I was the ‘ginger discount guy’.
“I ask if they do the ginger discount, and when they look confused I slide across my card.
“Usually everyone gets the humour behind it, some people look confused and wonder if it’s real which is always a laugh, but most get the joke.
“I’ve saved a couple of hundred pounds maybe, with money off booze, taxis, food and club entries – over four years it fairly builds up.
He may have saved money by having red hair, but is getting the occasional discount off a taxi ride worth looking like a leprechaun for your entire life? I don’t think so.
