Tim’s life had started to unravel quickly. First there was the fact that he had lost his job due to mechanised improvements. He was the UK’s finest surgeon for God’s sake, although Tim didn’t believe in God. Soon after his wife left him for a dog walker called Mary.
The one thing he couldn’t understand was how he had lost his job to some spiffy AI android but Mary here still had her job walking the canines of London. The final nail in the coffin came when he was refused service at his favourite coffee shop near his house as they said they ‘no longer serve his type any more’. He wasn’t sure if that was tea drinkers or unemployed surgeons whose now lesbian ex-wife have dog walkers for a partner.
Tim decided it was time for some reflection on his circumstances. Not sure how best to achieve this he decided his best course of action would be to stare intently into a mirror until he reached enlightenment. Little did he know he would become one of the world’s best. Tim has now spent the majority of the last 7 years staring into the same mirror. Sadly he’s still not enlightened. What’s the moral of this story? Well, that’s for me to know and you to find out…

Nearly everyone who has had the misfortune of setting eyes upon this soul have come away from the experience in tatters. Expect psychological and emotional scarring for openers and just hope that it doesn’t get any worse than that. In the interests of full exposure I should really mention that it’s not just his looks which drain most people but also his unbearable personality. It has been said that he was once used to wake someone from a coma although how true this is I’m not sure. I can only imagine it’s a case of out of the frying pan and in to the fire with this situation though as once the poor victim is awake he’s fully aware he’s stuck in a room with this dolt…
