Fandango’s word of the day is robbery https://fivedotoh.com/2022/06/26/fowc-with-fandango-robbery/.
Driving up to the petrol pump was always a bit of a surprise these days. Scarlet was almost afraid to look up at the price. Only months ago it was one pound forty-five, now, a few months later, it was nearly two pounds.
Robbery, and they did it using bright lights.
Hoping ten pounds would last her more than two days, she barely touched the sides of the petrol tank.
Her stomach rumbled, but she could wait a few hours till lunch. This job interview was important, it meant a little extra a month, and no worrying about bills. Scarlet used the contactless, hoping it would be authorised.
She couldn’t be sure if there was the right amount in her account, but it was worth a try.
