He's rich, he's carrying cash, what's the big deal?
We all know he's loaded but I thought it was highly insensitive that entering somewhere and is surrounded by employees, that his company has been treating so bad and underpaying, he pulls out a few grand in front of them.

Don't really know the context, where was he and why did he have to empty his pockets? Carrying something that is hidden away is hardly rubbing their noses in it, did he know in advance that he would have to take it out?

I'm not a big fan of Mike Ashley, but I think it unfair to call him out on this.

I mean it's not as if he's taken his shirt off in public and started lashing himself with his belt whilst dancing drunkenly and having people touch his sweaty moobs, is it?

I mean. That really would be worth calling out, wouldn't it? :sneaky:

I think its a total non story hyped up by Sky. Whats he got? A wedge of money, what notes, all 50's? Who knows? And even if he did, so he's carrying a couple of grand, maybe more. He's worth a lot more, what should he carry then 25 quid? Twats.

Meanwhile how many people carry plastic with them that has 5k or 10k limit on?

I couldn't care less but if knowing he'd be filmed demonstrating his new search policy to his mistreated employees, he's decided to fill his pockets full of wads of cash just to rub their noses in it. That would indeed make him a ****. Thing is we already know he's a **** so there's nothing new here.

What do you pay for in that much cash? Five guys burgers?
True story... I used to know a north london underworld type who was partially sited.... he always carried a grand on him.... he said it was so that he could jump in a taxi and get anywhere he needed to at a moments notice as he couldn't drive and relied on lifts.... but I guess his poor eyesight was a kind of 'special dispensation' to carry such a wad.... who knows what Ashley's excuse is

Shock, horror, the **** is loaded.

Don't care.

I wish I had that many 50s in my back pocket, even I would parade it about too.
