Harvester festival

Seeing as I had an extra 50p this week I decided to treat the family to a slap up Sunday roast at a local eatery. We usually frequent 'The Broadway' however this is currently undergoing a feverish refurbishment in the hope they can reopen for the Christmas rush.

A nice enough girl with either a broken or at least badly sprained arm attempted to serve us.Me: "Can I have four coffees please"

Customer: "Hi I'm after a bit of technical support we've bought some training software and I need to get it on the laptop and get the laptop on the Internet"
Me: "OK you can drop it down here and we will configure it for £35 an hour or I can send someone out but that will be £65 an hour"
Customer: "I thought we had an account with you?"
Me: "No you've had nothing with us for about a year now"
Customer: "Oh OK let me think about it"
Yeah you carry on thinking about it
