When we returned from Aberdeen we remembered that we needed to pick up our end of term present from work. This comprised a brown paper bag that contained a Lochinver pie and enough ham and cheese rolls to last the first week of the vacation.
It was a long way to Craiglockhart to make the collection so instead we popped down to the theatre at the Pleasance. There the woman on the ticket desk handed over the bags. Meanwhile, not one to miss the opportunity of flirting, my companion entered into conversation with the man who was helping in the box office.
When I mentioned that I might have a complaint about the service, the woman told me that I could lodge it using WhatsApp. She was aghast when I told her that I didn’t use this messaging service. Indeed, she made a big fuss over her belief that it was the responsibility of people in jobs like mine to keep on top of every form of social media.
