Is it me or are FAC tickets getting, well, a bit crappy?
When I first got my FAC, back in the 80's, I remember it fondly when I pulled it from the envelope.
For starters it came with a laminated front page, with a embossed Police logo. The paper was "special", like Conqueror paper.
The photo was a proper photo and it came in a plastic wallet with the ticket folded into three.
The ticket felt special.
I have just got my new ticket in the post. A co-terminous one.
Oh dear, I know now where the 25% cuts are coming from!
The ticket was on cheap paper, the colour of the certificate and the photo was from a bubble jet printer.
It was folded in half, stapled and that's it.
So now I have to refold it in three and find a holder for it.
Having just turned 42 last week, I feel like one of those grumpy old men off the telly!
What do you think?
