A MAN has agreed to work this Saturday under the illusion that his boss was aware that he would be a little bit drunk.
Kitchen porter Martin Bishop was happy to cover the weekend shift because he needed the money and assumed his boss was fine with him occasionally nipping to the loo until the shakes calmed a bit.
He said: “I mean it’s Satuday morning. Do the maths.
“I arrived and Emma said ‘You’re looking rough,’ and I said ‘Yeah, only had two hours sleep,’ and she pursed her lips as if I’d said something out of turn.
“Then when I was sick in the sink – they’re dirty dishes, after all, and I think it proves my dedication to staying at my position – she was all like ‘Look at the state of you,’ and I was like ‘Hey, you asked me to come in’.”
Kitchen manager Emma Bradford said: “I’d sack him, but I’d have to do it one-on-one and he might realise I was still pissed from last night.”
