I’m just about to start my first shift back in the Football Transfer Tavern after a couple of weeks off, when the barmaid on duty with me bursts out laughing and beckons me over.
This girl, who shall remain nameless, is always on her flamin’ phone and I’ve been close to sacking her on so many occasions but, against my better judgment, I did wander over to see what was so funny.
Now, we all love the film ‘Home Alone 2: Lost In New York’ (I’m pretty certain it was one of the answers in the pub quiz last night) so suggesting that Wayne Rooney’s newest headgear is reminiscent of Joe Pesci’s character in the box office hit, is rather amusing (not amusing enough to be on your phone during a shift, however!).
I’m rather tempted to add something to the viral image, myself though; when you consider Adnan Januzaj’s performance for Manchester United against Sunderland, perhaps an image of the 18-year-olds face over Macaulay Culkin’s would be rather apt.
Anyway, I’m going to print this out but not before I let in the punter banging on the door, in.
