Yes, in the pub world we’re already discussing Christmas! Not only that, but our deadline for ordering crackers (or ‘bon-bons’ as the Aussies call them!??!) and decorations from our supplier is NEXT WEEK FRIDAY!! WTF??! It’s September for crying out loud! And to top it all, the pub where we held our meeting today (yes, our meetings are ALWAYS held in pubs) had it’s decorations and Christmas tree up already! Don’t we have to get past Trafalgar Day and Halloween first??
And you wanna know what the best part is? I’ve been ‘VOLUNTEERED’ by my Area Manager to be the area’s ‘Christmas Champion’! A sort of a Santa without the suit. I get to deal with 18 pubs’ seasonal problems starting from NOW!!
Was I really such a naughty boy this year…? Bargh Humbug!
