A WETHERSPOONS barmaid is looking forward to a chilled, stress-free shift this evening, she has confirmed.
Emma Bradford, aged 21, who works at The Ash Tree in Ashton-under-Lyne, is hoping she can catch up on her college reading in between occasional, polite customers.
She said: “Not much danger of a busy shift tonight. What with the cold and Casualty being on, I reckon most people will be staying in.
“Normally I do daytimes, which is all old blokes but they put them away. There’s always one at the bar. Yesterday it took me ten minutes to send a text.
“I managed to swap this one with Carl, who seemed really grateful to have the night off. I don’t think he’s someone who likes to be alone with his thoughts while I get overwhelmed when it’s busy, so it suits both of us.
“I’m hoping I’ll get off early because I can’t imagine they’ll be anyone in here after 10pm. That’s bedtime. You’ve basically ruined your Sunday if you’re up later than that.”
She added: “I need the work though, because I’m saving for a really relaxing, mellow and spiritual trip to Magaluf with the girls.”
