A Prestatyn man who put a small block of wood in his garage in 1982 ‘because it might come in handy in the future’ has used it to prop up a set of drawers, 33 years later.
Gary Slowcoach, 52, put the small block of wood in his garage after finding it outside his house. Despite his wife telling him to throw it away, Gary kept it because he thought it might come in handy in the future.
He told WalesOnCraic:
“I always knew that it’d come in handy one day. My missis kept telling me to throw it away but it was just fate that I found it outside my house that day. Then yesterday, one of the short legs on my set of drawers came off as I tried to retrieve my kegs that had fallen down the back. My mind immediately went to the block of wood I’d put in the garage back in 1982 and lo and behold – it was the perfect shape and size.”
Wife Jean wasn’t overly pleased.
“He’s a lazy twat. All he had to do was stick the drawer leg back on but oh no, he wanted to prove me wrong after all these years. I’m thinking of divorcing him soon. He’s done nothing for me these last 30 years. And his arse smells too.”
