A less-frequent, but more prolonged, ghost at the feat has been Tilly Floss. Every so often she'll meet up with Maisie and Betty for lunch and she'll pop in and say hello to everyone, which in itself is nice and friendly and what have you. Unfortunately, every so often she'll pop in, unannounced and park herself in the staff room for a warm while she's waiting for her bus. And eat her lunch, which she will have brought along with her "on the off-chance" she might be stopping.
Nearly three years ago she became a member of the public. The staff room is not a public area. People, many of whom don't know Tilly, leave their coats and bags and personal belongings here. And are surprised to come in for their lunch to find a stranger in their midst, unannounced and unheralded.
Questions have been asked of our managers.
"She's been doing it a long while. We can't doing anything about it now. Perhaps Maisie or Betty could have a word with her."
