A day of high's and low's today, I was in the courtyard at work today when a child barged past me, I stopped him and told him he wasn't allowed in that area.
'Prove it' he said 'I want you to phone a member of staff and prove I'm not allowed here'.
I showed him my ID and said 'I am a member of staff'.
'Well I don't recognise you' he replied.
So I said 'Well I recognise you and you are in trouble'.
At this he told me to fuck off and ran away, to my great joy our assistant head appeared and when I described the child she knew exactly who I meant and deprived him of the rest of his lunch break. I'd still rather have thwacked him.
I've had my car looked at and repaired £20 to have part of my exhaust replaced. It's a local garage, a bit rough and ready but they are very good. I usually see the owner (I looked after his dog last year when he went home to Poland for a wedding), but he wasn't there today.
The office was locked up but a huge man with a beard was sat in a car, he didn't appear to speak any English apart from 'OK' but I handed over my keys.
It was only as I was sat on the bus coming home I suddenly wondered if he was an employee or just a passing car thief.
I text my son who used to work there and he reassured me, 'That will be his mechanic, he's huge but very shy'. What a relief!
