A local cheapskate has peaked in life today after being invited into a corporate box at the Betoota Cricket Ground.

He shared the news with his Instagram followers by uploading a story consisting of a close up shot of a crisp schooner on a table, with the rest of the grandstand and pitch slightly out of focus in the background, with a caption saying, ‘I could get used to this.’

The Advocate managed to catch up with Jim van Bix sometime after this post while he was out in the concourse having a cigarette.

“Fuck, I can’t believe these boxes have been sitting here the whole time.”

“I don’t know how I’m going to go back to sitting in GA with all the plebs.”

“This is just so grouse.”

“I don’t think I’ve even watched any of the cricket.”

“I’m just in there scoffing down all those Peking Duck pancakes, fuck they’re good!”

After doing some further digging, The Advocate discovered that about 80% of people who attend corporate boxes and upload proof of it on to social media, are in fact free-loading.

The other 20% are men on bucks’ parties who have all pooled their money together.

It’s not yet known whether Jim will receive the call up to next week’s game.

More to come.
