Pansy rings up about a problem with the People's Network and follows through with:
"You buggers all went home early last night, didn't you?"
"Yes, you all went home when Helminthdale Library shut at 5 o'clock." [Monday's our late night, when all our libraries are open until 8pm]
"Did we? I wasn't here then. Did anybody tell the other libraries?"
"No. The only reason I knew was because Mary rang me about something else and said in passing that the library was closed and they'd all gone home."
I can't begin to comment on this.
