Driven to despair

Back at the ranch, I bump into Kevin the van driver. This is a surprise as he's contracted to finish at five.

"Working late?"

"T.Aldous insisted that I take some more book sale down to Catty. Not that they've got room for it, mind."

"He asked you to do that at the end of the afternoon?"

"This was about three o'clock. Once I got to Catty Julia had me taking stuff over to Carbootsale."

"I saw you bring over the spinners when I was there. But that was about half four."

"That was the first of three trips she had me doing. God knows what they're supposed to be doing with it at Carbootsale, they've no space left any more and everything's piled up in the front porch."

This obsession with the book sale (shared by my director) - do you think it has something to do with the fact that he always seems to have loose change? I bet his secretary is rolling up the nickels and dimes as we speak.

There's far too much sense in that idea.

I suggest they're just idiots.
