Tracey decided to teach her son all about saving money. It was going really well until he revealed, in his mere 9 years on Earth, he’d saved £3,450 under his racing car shaped bed. Tracey did the maths in her head and realised that was approximately £3,450 more than she’d ever saved in her life, so she reported him to the police accusing him of robbery – the cocky little bastard.
