After news that gingers are set to become extinct due to increasingly sunny skies in Scotland, one dude is making the most of his red-headedness by creating a home-made ‘ginger discount card’ which incredibly, has so far worked for him in bars, restaurants, cinemas and taxis.
Richard Macrae from Aberdeen says:
People have always given me stick for my hair colour, but now I’m going out 3 nights a week and saving a fortune. The joke is on them. It comes out with me more than my bank card. My reputation precedes me and 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, but some people look confused and wonder if it’s real. I’ve saved a couple hundred pounds maybe, with money off booze, taxis, food and club entries and over four years it fairly builds up.
I know what I’d be doing right now if I was ginger — making my very own ginger discount card and looking ginger as fuck on it. Growing out a ginger moustache and goatee to go with my ginger hair and plastering the photo on a laminated ginger card. Doesn’t get more legit than that.
