I'm the one on the left
In two days,I have done around seven and a half hours taking money on the Prestatyn flower Show gate. Generally it is a worthwhile and enjoyable job, full of good humour and idle chatter.
Only occasionally does some uncouth specimen spoil the harmony of the day by complaining on the cost of admission (£1.50!) or the fact the Show doesn't provide it's own toilet facilities!
The best complaint of the day came from two middle aged women who, quite honestly had seen better days. Not locals, they actually stopped me on their way home to complain that one of the brass band players ( Rhyl's excellent brass band had been commissioned to play to entertain visitors ) had showed too much of his arse cheeks when bending over.
I tried to make light of it by smiling a big smile and saying " well it's a very hot day" but this seemed to irritate one of the women more and she kept on repeating that the whole spectacle was " absolutely disgusting "
I smiled a big false smile at the woman and chirped out in my best sing song voice
" life's a big disappointment sometimes isn't it?"
And went back to my next customer.
