I am wholly up for making customers happy, but had to laugh when a staff member just went the extra mile, causing my boss to ask:
"Can you print a new copy of the poster about the regimental cat? The bar manager damaged it while trying to un-staple it off the wall. He was going to photocopy it for an American customer who really wanted a copy, but then we found the file and printed a new one off for him."
This is simply an A4 comedy poster we stapled up about a missing cat (challenging kids to then find the hidden toy cat) which also gently mocks the manager who wanted to get rid of the cat in the first place (before we hid it) I can only assume our American guest is a cat lover after a unique souvenir!
This is quite an old cartoon, drawn while working at Staircase House (great place, well worthy visiting Stockport for there, Bramall Hall, the Hat Museum, Air Raid Shelters and the marketplace. Then, leave before it gets dark...) and just after Most Haunted had done a live broadcast from the site. We had quite the procession of erm, unique, visitors after that show, including some who complained rather bitterly. Genuinely, a small pane of glass in a leaded window was cracked, and comment had been made on the "sudden and unusual drop in temperature" by a few people.
I may well draw up some of what went on behind the scenes of it in the future. Mistaking a smoke alarm for communications from beyond the grave on live TV? whoops. I'm not saying that it's not haunted, just that whatever is there had enough sense to dodge the TV crew ;)
