    Awww no I always seem to get loads of freebies or reductions from places I have worked, where do you work?
    Also it the sweet shop job sucked after a while, the manager kept going off to the pub leaving me in charge for hours and I wasn't aloud to leave the stand for the loo or to have a lunch break so ended up having to have sweets for every lunch. Plus one weekend I was asked to separate by colour 2 massive 3ft x 3ft boxes of gummy bears ah.
