This is Robert Weighton, he’s 109 years old and he has the face of someone who gives zero f*cks. Just look at him:
His face screams: “It’s going to take a lot to impress me, even if the Queen in person sends me a card.”
Well, that’s actually happened.
Weighton, who was born in March 1908 when Edward VII was King and Britain had yet to fight in two world wars, has declined a card from the Queen because he’s got too many of them and doesn’t want to clutter his cosy home.
“I’d already received one every year and since it’s the age of austerity I thought I would save the country a little bit on postage and printing,” he told ITV News. “I don’t want a whole row of them, there’s no point in that.”
Fair enough mate. I guess when you reached the age of 109, with three children, 10 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren you can let yourself to be a bit cheeky. Also, when you reach that age you probably give zero f*cks about everything. Even the Queen.
In another interview, Weighton said he accepted a card from the Queen two years ago because she’d been smiling on it.
“In the rest of the cards she looked a bit miserable while on official duties,” he said.
Robert, you cheeky lad.
