Manager? What does that mean any more?

On a regular basis I seem to have the same conversation with shops, council offices, service providers. Usually with some barely pubescent youngster:-

"I need to speak to the manager."

- "I'm the manager sir - how can I help you?"

"I need you to sort (whatever)."

- "I'm sorry sir - I can't do anything about that."

"Then you're not the manager - you just think you are. How do I get to speak to the _real_ manager please?"

Oh, and you forgot to include leaflets. They too seem to have taken the place of real work in so many service organisations these days.

DVLA off-road system seriously off-message


Not so.

Not so much uninformed, mate, as unused to tugging the forelock. Keep tugging yours, by all means.
