Just Joan: Family cash in on bingo rumour.

Byline: Joan Burnie

Q I WON a few quid at bingo last week and my friends teased me in the pub afterwards about my win.

But false rumours quickly spread that really did land a lot of money and now I am being pestered for money by lots of people, including my sister.

She refuses to believe it was a joke and accused me of keeping my ``fortune'' to myself. Now my mum believes it too and even sent me a wee letter to say she was happy for me and deserve the money.

Could you clear this all up by writing: ``MUM, AVRIL ONLY WON pounds 15 AND A BOX OF GROCERIES.''?

A THIS is not usually the sort of thing I am willing to do but as it is real cry from the heart, I will make an exception provided of course, that you split the groceries with your mum.

However, if and when you do get a genuine big win at bingo, I hope you won't give a brass farthing to that grasping sister of yours.
