A story i can tell from My time there,
I was working in Acton, London and staying in a Hotel in the Elephant and Castle area, In the bar at night was this Yank, typical yank , We do this better, we do that better, bla bla bla, anyway, he's buying drinks for anyone that could be bothered listening to him, I n his conversations he, mentions Metal Box, Curiosity got the better of me and i walked over and introduced myself as a fellow Metal box employee, I never bought another drink all night, this guy was flashing his company credit card and telling me how, we are doing it wrong and he's going to put it right, I remember him saying, " I'm flying up to Westhoughton tomorrow for a meeting and, brag brag brag," he then pulled out a , playboys club card, bunny girls and all that and asked, " do you fancy going here ?" how could I refuse ? he paid the taxi there, got us in and, WOW, I saw another world, He paid for drinks all night and the taxi back to our hotel, all on company expences , he could afford all that, yet his company could still underprice the building and maintenance of our Dept,
Go figure,
