Man Gives Hilarious Response To Not Being Able To Spend Christmas With In-Laws
Viewers tuning into BBC news last night got a bit of a chuckle when one man described how lucky he felt to get out of going to his mother-in-law's due to Tier 4 restrictions.
The unnamed bloke was vox-popped in Thurrock, Essex, about how the restrictions have impacted his Christmas and, while many people are devastated at the thought of not being able to see their families this Christmas, clearly not everyone is gutted.
He told the reporter: "It's a bit of a touch really because I was meant to go to the mother-in-law's.
"But I ain't got to go now so it's a right touch. See you later."
Come on now, mate, that is not the Christmas spirit.
Look at this happy face:
I wonder if he'll still be smiling when his other half sees the report?

Viewers thought the fella was hilarious, with one person posting on Twitter: "Oh my God! The guy on the news who just said he didn't mind the new restrictions 'cause he was supposed to go to his mother-in-laws - excellent comic delivery."
Someone else joked: "I agree with him. I ain't seen my mother-in-law since February. Result.
"Boris is doing a fab job. If we can make it to the summer that my family and I don't have to see her till 2022, that would be top dollar."
A third posted: "Words thought by many men, very few with cajones big enough to say in public, on the news."
While someone else agreed: "Believe me, there are many up and down the country who are actually secretly relishing a quiet Christmas."
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced large areas of the south of England would be going into tougher measures following a sharp rise in coronavirus cases.
Announcing the news on Saturday, he said: "I know how much emotion people invest in this time of year, and how important it is, for instance, for grandparents to see their grandchildren, for families to be together.
"So I know how disappointing this will be. But we have said throughout this pandemic that we must and we will be guided by the science.
"When the science changes, we must change our response."
