Scouser: I’m gonna give you a hand today.
BB: Aw thanks Scouser but you don’t have to do that.
Scouser: nah mate I want to. And then you can give me a job and we can play cards when its quiet.
BB: (aside) fuck’s sake.
Ten minutes later
Customer: flat white please.
Scouser: certainly sir. Would you like a sandwich.
Customer: no thanks.
Scouser: go on just have a sandwich.
Customer: nah I’ve just had lunch.
Scouser: come on they are only small. Just get one. Look I’ll put one in a bag for you.
Customer: no thank you.
Scouser: just buy a fucking sandwich.
The customer comes and stands next to me. I make his coffee while he eyes up the scouser.
Scouser: I hate people like that. You’re standing here working hard and he’s too cheap to put his hand in his pocket. Anyway I’m off now. See you tomorrow fella.
