  9. Loved my time 'Converting' some Marsdens/Farrands shops Vernons to self-service,,it would have been early 60s and i was 16/17 yr old,,and part of a team of what were called ''lay out staff'',, They were all small shops in different parts of Notts,,the older customers had been shopping at them for years and were completely 'non-plussed' with the idea of helping themselves. I took great pleasure in showing them the 'Ropes',, and if they got too grumpy i'd get a chair for them sit em down and do their shopping for em,, lots of 'banter flowed,,i'd often have 2 or 3 of em sat down,,then sit with em, agreeing this self service lark was a 'bind' weren't

    Having a right Grumpy day today............but must admit feel better after venting my anger at some IDIOTS,, all my own fault up late and...i had let my Parking Permit expire at City Hospital,, First to get it was chap in a ticket was rejected and had to back out,,chap in 4x4 started beeping and shaking his head.........told him with the aid of my ''talking thingy'' to go and make love to himself,,, I didn't know where to renew my Permit,,,and time was running out for my appointment,,eventually saw a sign''Security and Parking''......Security man said ''why you let it run out ?'' couldn't believe him and told him same as 4x4 man,,cut a long story fairly short,,eventually got a form from him,,but made him fill it in,,due to my shaky hand/finger. 'time running out now,,hate being late for owt,,so went down a one-way street the wrong way to get to my parking area,, got out me car and some clever-dick'' said to me ''do you know you've driven down a one-way street the wrong way ''? ''YES'' said i,, now go away''..........eventually got to my appointment on time,,and shared my experience's with the lovely staff in there..........Same as i said all my own fault really but must admit enjoyed informing a few Assholes about the sens,,...........
