Frog and Maybelle emerge from the meeting with secret smiles.
"What's up?" I ask.
"Well, you know how we've been wondering who our line manager is in the half of the week when Mary's not working?" says Frog. "And how we're wondering who'll be taking over when she eventually goes?"
"You've not asked her again?" I scoff.
"Better stiil," replied Maybelle with savage glee, "Nancy did!"
Nancy, while being a lovely lady, isn't one of our more dynamic players. If you get to the point where even she is losing patience with a situation there really must be an issue.
"Did you get to find out then?" I ask.
"Don't take the piss, it's not nice," replied Frog.
