The Friday Question Set — 3-7-2015

Bloody, HELL, but that was a long day!

At work, I mean!

As you’re possibly away, I work in a local fast food joint.

And most of the time, most of the punters are fine.


There’s always one or two who aren’t.

Usually … ?   Usually, not often or frequently.

Unfortunately, the one in particular who’s causing problems?

Is a teenager who — frankly — a royal pain in the bum.

In the pub trade — the one industry I spent so long in — things are relatively simple.   Once barred, a customer can’t go back.

Unfortunately … ?

I’m not working in the pub trade.

At any rate, that’s my gripe: and one I hope will — long term — will come sort of positive conclusion.

It’s Friday: which means my gripes aren’t the important bit.


It’s means the important bit is the Friday Question Set!
