European Union Injured War Hero Who Won Gold @ Games Insulted by Rich Businessman

War Hero's Brilliant Response After Businessman Asks Him to Work For 'a Free Lunch'

Andy Grant, who was injured in a blast in Afghanistan in February 2009, decided the only way to respond was with humour

Daily Mirror UK, 14 Sep 2019.










A war hero was left fuming after a businessman asked him to work for a 'free lunch.'




Former Marine Andy Grant, from Bootle, Merseyside, was injured in a blast in Afghanistan in February 2009 and had his right leg amputated in November 2010.



He now makes a living touring the country as an inspirational speaker providing keynote speeches to various companies, schools and charities.

The 31-year-old has a huge list of credentials - he was brought in by Gareth Southgate to help his squad handle the mental pressure ahead of the 2018 World Cup and will appear in Celebrity Masterchef 2019.

Andy, who also became the world’s fastest single-leg amputee at 10km and won two golds at the Invictus Games, was shocked when he received a direct message on LinkedIn and decided the only way to respond was with humour.

The message begins politely with the man explaining how he was looking for an inspirational speaker to provide a talk about "overcoming adversity" to his team, reports Liverpool Echo .

However, the businessman soon gets to the issue of payment and offers "the best lunch you've ever had" instead of paying Andy for his work.


The message reads:

"Hi Andy, thanks for accepting my invite.
"I am organising my team meeting to take place on 28th November, probably in Warrington.

"With mental health becoming very relevant in my family recently and the general struggles we each face, the theme of the meeting in November is; overcoming adversity.


"I have been researching LinkedIn to find somebody who could give an inspirational talk.

"It would be a real thrill if you could give a talk to the team, my only issue is payment, I'm hoping the best lunch you ever had would cover it!

"I can certainly promote your talk to us via the [...] LinkedIn page and other senior colleagues.

"Thanks for reading."
