All I can say really is that M & S at Teeside Park at half past nine on a Saturday morning is pretty much mayhem. Admittedly it was a twenty percent off clothing day, which I am sure made a difference, but finding a spot in the car park would have been nigh on impossible without my 'Disabled' badge and the poor assistants were already looking haggard. Only another seven or so hours to go.
Watching my half hour of Breakfast television this morning - on a Saturday it includes a quarter of an hour of 'Click' - I watched with amazement a Production line putting together smart phones in China. Long lines of operatives, each one placing just one tiny component in the phone and then sending it on to the next bay so that in double quick time it arrives at the end of the line and is complete. No wonder the operatives get a two hour lunch break; most of them, heads down, were asleep at their posts.
All this made me jolly glad to be long-retired.
Oh and by the way - bought two lovely sweaters.
