An annoying twat who works in an office has signed off for his Christmas holidays with his annual punchline, leaving a sour taste with his coworkers.

Pete Bowen, 44, has worked in Administration in the Highways Department in Swansea Council for 12 years, building a reputation as a steely, reliable administrator with a penchant for telling shit jokes.

Bowen said: “I think the team really enjoy my annual one liners, it’s great for morale and gives them all something to look forward to.

“I finished for Christmas yesterday, so I proudly took centre stage and announced to the whole office that I’d ‘see them next year’ before I left. It’s funny because I won’t be back in work technically until next year.

“I’m also known to slip in other hilarious gags throughout the year to keep everyone on their toes. When the clocks change I remind everyone what time it was yesterday the same time yesterday, twice a year I get to do that one, everyone loves it.”

Colleague Theresa Connell said: “Christmas is one of the only times of the year that I’m reasonably happy with my existence, but Pete destroys my meagre happiness by opening his mouth.

“Every year he stands up with that smug look on his face and comes out with his annoying joke about seeing us all next year.

“If you read this Pete, I hate you and hope you choke on your turkey.”

Bowen added: “Everyone will be delighted with my New Year resolution to tell more jokes.”
