Careful With His Money

(75 word short story published on Paragraph Planet on Wednesday 03-Apr-2013)

He isn't tight. Not one of those blokes who's first out the cab but last to the bar. He loves a bargain, is all.

Box of 160 pyramid teabags down from £4.39 to £3.00. And they're the brand she likes.

Game on.

He feeds in the note, pockets the £2 coin.

Unlocks his bike and sails off to locate the next loss leader.

Doesn't hear the cashier racing out with his forgotten fiver.
