( me!!! but they say openly she's playing up???) then I told Max & Joseph in the pub one night who wanted to see me with some news, but before that don't even LOOK at another woman until we get back to you hey?, so what's the good news?, ok what you doing tomorrow? nothing why Fred want's to see you urgently!! at 9am and DONT' BE LATE ( he used to get there at 7.30) so I arrived to be greeted by some of the staff that used to be there everybody shaking there heads what's up? then Fred came out everybody into the warehouse wth chairs set out ok? let's start the reason I asked you to come here today and I thank-you what I would like to know who has re-applied for a job here? up goes the hand's and what happened? then came the reason's why they wern't taken on? ok most of you have almost got the same story? which I thought was the story sorry it's taken a while but I found out accidently found out someone shouted out ( and not me!!) normally place Fred? in the pub we heard hahah and the whole meeting cracked up even Fred had a laugh, ok Miss Jones please come in, click click from the back of the warehouse so everybody as you normaly do turned around AND IT'S SANDRA back to her old self or seemed to be, this ladies and Gentelmen everybody looks around that's not you etc!! ok Joke over!!,) this will be our & your new personnel manager as from tomorrow, bang clap & cheers poor Sandra!!! take a bow we yelled and she did, NOW I have some bad news, I have no choice in terminating the services of our current_________ (didn't have a chance to say it) again claps and cheers, ok now if anybody would like to find out any info come and see Sandra any Questions?
