Judging by his reaction he'd never seen her move that fast before!
(Again, apologies for another cartoon a bit iffy in the colours, I'm using a different scanner and trying to adapt to what it picks up and how I then need to edit for clarity of image)
I may well edit this better in the future, but this was far too amusing to not share with you while English museums have only just reopened, and masks etc are still being worn.
What happens when the staff have had free run of their venue for some time, and are in a good mood after binge watching Disney+?
I actually had to be part of a situation like this.
The venue had failed to think through the full ramifications of opening times and staff hours, but it was eventually worked out, although had an understandable knock on effect on new staff who had been planning their travel arrangements around the orignally advertised job times. It's a bit rubbish too, having to tell someone who has just finished their visit that they can't buy anything, because you have already closed the till up.
If a historic or heritage venue, heck, any venue, says they have smoking policies, please do obey them. Odds are it isn't purely draconian, but is, for example, to protect vulnerable items, or prevent sensitive alarm equipment going off and you all having to go and stand outside while the food goes cold and the fizzy goes flat. Also, it doesn't matter who you are, what you paid for, or who you know, if you've been told, you’ve been told. Security don't muck about.
