Well done! If you got the harder bits I'm sure the people marking you will infer that it was nerves and that you knew the content.

Chinese on the way, a bottle or three of Cobra on the coffee table, smoke in the ashtray, Beatles Made on Merseyside documentary starts in under half-hour, feet up. Survived another week in Brexitland, though the head did come close to exploding more than once.

Only sad note at this end of the week, Joe Flannery's in the Beatles doc... probably his last filmed interview... a-hard-days-night-paul-10heartjohn-lennon-salute_gif RIP.

Just got back from a shift in which I had to deal with... sigh... the Great British Public, several members of which amazed me with their stupidity. 

A lady who had left her THREE YEAR OLD child unattended in the cinema (and was wandering around the building looking for him) came and complained to us that he'd managed to have put his hand under the hot water in the bathroom sink, and start talking about how shocked she was and that as a teacher, she would have been more careful. As it transpired, her and her friend had actually broken our policy of 'only two bottles of alcohol per ticket', having six between them despite having several children to look after. She also claimed she was going to take her child (whose hand, according to him, was fine) to A&E, but we heard her on the phone asking her mother to pick up the kid so she could go to Sainsburys. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gifpaul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Also, a mother tried to get her 13 year old daughter into a 15 rated film, arguing that it worked the same way as the 12A specification, in which an under 12 year old can watch the film if accompanied by an adult paul-mccartney

As you can imagine, QuarryMan and QuarryCoworkers had their patience tested rather a lot.

That sounds terrible-- she was the one responsible for her child, not you, why is she blaming you? Ugh. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

I expect the same types of people crop up around the world - entitled customers who push poor staff as far as they'll go in order to get whatever material benefits they can. I've heard that some horrible people make it a habit of staying a weekend in some fancy self catering place and then on their last day make a bunch of unreasonable complaints and kick up enough of a fuss that they get given their money back, meaning they got a free holiday paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Ah well, at least it's the holidays for me, and I can put that unpleasant experience in the past heart

Those types of people are terrible. I also hate it when people get angry at employees for things that are in no way shape or form their fault. Leave them alone, for God 's sake-- if you need to complain to somebody, they are not the people you're looking for!

Speaking of things that annoy me, we're doing an activity in History that's basically our own version of the Nuremberg Trials. In my infinite luck (yes that is sarcastic) the teacher made me a defense attorney, so I have to try to convince a jury of extremely biased classmates not to convict the four Nazi defendants of war crimes and crimes against humanity-- problem is, from what I can tell, all four are guilty of both of those things. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif
