Today is the day. That’s right it’s Friday. The Pole Company is open as per usual. The Sun is out there somewhere and a certain something is opening at the cinema today.
To help celebrate we have employed some interesting characters to unofficially help us out today. You may think we should have learned from our infamous Star Wars Day recruits, but here we go again.
‘Let the Games begin!’
Despite the unusual headgear, Mr Bane proved to be a very enthusiastic volunteer. Big fellow, quite chatty seemed to have a connection with customers so we thought we’d trial him on the shop counter but first we had a quick question.
‘Do you really need the mask?’
‘No one cared who I was until I put on the mask…and I need it for health reasons.’
Never one to downplay Health and Safety, we put him in the safest place imaginable at The Pole Company. The IT department. Hey, no one ever died using Google Analytics.
Managing the website for us he was able to load some gallery items, a few new products and conducted general browsing of our other blog items. He won’t admit it but we’re pretty sure there was a smile underneath that disturbing mask of his.
Our second recruit of the day refused to give a name. However he must have decided he was in mourning or couldn’t be bothered to get out of his Gothic pyjamas as he showed up in a very peculiar outfit that made Mr Bane’s hockey mask look relatively subtle. So all things considered, to wake this grumpy goose up we put him on the phone.
‘SWEAR TO ME‘
Big mistake. Found him growling at a customer wanting to confirm their fitting date so we switched him very quickly to deal with our showroom customers instead. Surprisingly he seemed to get on with the public, especially when he wasn’t talking to them.
All was going well until lunch time when Mr Bane and Pyjama Man sat together. Discussing the day we presume Pyjama boy made a cheap shot about Mr Bane’s unique asthma inhaler or Mr Bane said he was Gotham’s reckoning but whatever was said just meant we had to separate the two for the rest of the afternoon.
A few more hours of curtain poles, blinds and shutter discussions 5pm came as did the end of our delightful day here at The Pole Company’s HQ.
One thing was learned never hire vigilantes or villains to run the shop. They argue, fight and scare off customers.
I bet we wouldn’t have had this kind of trouble with Spiderman.
