LONDON — Signing a contract to stack shelves, check out groceries and answer customer queries is probably not up there with signing a major sports contract but this student’s big moment has been retweeted like it was.
Scottish student Andrew Paterson recently re-signed to his weekend job at his local Asda supermarket and won Twitter in the process.
Very happy to announce that i’ve renewed my contract with asda and will continue working weekends for the near future pic.twitter.com/PKOWnWtncT

Paterson’s tweet, which parodied what footballers do when they sign contracts, has been retweeted 18,000 times, almost on a par with when Luis Suarez re-signed his contract with Liverpool in 2013.

And it didn’t go unnoticed by his employers.
