For your information Chris, there's more to sorting this than simply phoning, placing an order and everything being magically and immediately cool. Roweena had to take a step back from her business for a while. Plus, it's a new business for her which will not immediately present itself as perfect. P...

Right,

We're getting brownies £12 for 20.

I'm Night Managing tonight. Night Manager education night

Yo! I've decided to Night Manage tonight. If you're a budding new Night Manager it's a great opportunity to come help (even if it's just for the end) if you want clarification as to how to close up. There's a full staff of volunteers, there's no event (though I may do a 'pub' quiz. Maybe) so it'll b...

Help needed for ultra quiet night tonight

Yo!

We need a Night Manager for tonight. There's volunteers a-plenty all night and all day, just a Night Manager needed.

There's no event on tonight, so it would be an easy shift - a great opportunity for more new Night Managers to practice their managerial skills.

By the way, for those that are confused (and I know of one already) a 'Crisp' sandwich is when you take two slices of bread, 'butter' them heavily, stick crisps in the middle and add ketchup.

NOT a sandwich that is 'crisp' like a lettuce.
