I got back to Yarwood yesterday morning having been busy in Essex Christmas shopping for the past two days. We are now moored in a wintry Ely and this morning I went up into the City for an appointment with my bank. I arrive for the 10.30 meeting five minutes early, book in and take a seat.
Fifteen minutes later, now ten minutes AFTER my appointment and no sign of the promised financial whizz-kid so I collar the receptionist and ask her to pass a message on...
"I had/have a meeting, 10 minutes ago, I am now leaving would you mind telling Ermintrude that keeping a customer waiting for 10 minutes is EXCEEDINGLY RUDE.....thank you."
So back to the boat and transfer funds from said Bank to......someone else.
I felt so much better!
