News of a series of secret signs in the men’s rooms of pub across the UK has emerged, revealing an underground network of deceit and bribery.
The signs offer opportunity for troubled male patrons to have staff lie over the phone to their wife, with a scaled system of payment.
Representatives from associations for inquisitive women and neglected wives are said to be outraged.
Critics say the so-called ‘tariff’ has contributed to countless arguments after men have eventually returned home after carefree nights at the pub.
Critics of the critics say it has saved at least as many arguments from taking place in the first place.
The sign has reportedly been spotted throughout England, and at least one has been seen in the USA also. Investigations continue about bringing it to Australia.
