Another Day at (Almost) Voluntary Work part 4

At (almost) voluntary work today, Mr Dashingly-Tall asked me when I was taking my leave from the shop. “A week on Friday,” I informed him. He frowned momentarily and told me that shop holidays started on the 21st July.

“Silly me,” I said, “good job you told me, otherwise I would have spent all day in bed with a bottle of scotch on that day!”

He gave me one of his special smiles, patted me on the head and pressed a shiny sixpence into my hand. Of course, this means I am obliged to spend my holiday time on extra duties, including shop training for somebody called Mandy Tory. I believe I read somewhere that her family were keen on closing us down, but I’m sure that’s not true.

Happy days.

A man trapped inside a middle aged body still tries to be hip and trendy. Actually, no he doesn't. He says it as he sees it. as long as it's not too controversial. Living with his wife, Lady Barton St Mary, two children, Miss Katherine and Master Johnny in Randall Towers, he is constantly frustrated by the mechanisms of modern life and the issues raised by being the husband of a high flying executive and member of the aristocracy. All he wants is a quiet life and a full set of Deal or No Deal DVDs. Please help him.
