Last year, my aged Great Aunt, who is more than a bit senile, gave me a Nott's County season ticket for Christmas.
Not wanting it, I took it down to Meadow Lane, and nailed it to the gates.
A couple of weeks later, I had a change of heart, and decided that it was stupid to give something as valuable as that to any old stranger, so I went to retrieve the prized item.
When I returned however it was too late.
Some creep had nicked the nail.
