One of the positives of running a shop and spending time behind the counter is meeting so many different people and being a small concern we usually have time for a chat and a laugh with our customers. Young, old,school kids, workers, resting or retired they share an interesting mix of ideas and experiences.  Occasionally we get someone through the door who is less than welcome.

Just after 8.00am this morning a rather scruffy, unshaven man limped into the shop. He appeared to be tipsy and asked if we could do him a favour? His voice was slurred but eventually we realised that he had a plaster cast on his leg and he was asking us to remove it for him.
