    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.

    And, I used to work at M&S. I don't work anywhere currently, but I had an interview at Boost Juice which went alright.

    Aww, that sucks, at least you don't have him as a boss now.
