Emergency call out

One of our fish suppliers rang yesterday morning asking if I could help these people who have just bought a Fish and Chip shop who do not know how to cut fish
Being the kind hearted person I am I went down and set them [Jill & Chris] on the right track and cut a few fillets for them but, after what I found out I'm going to help them all I can.
How's this for a con :- The lady [Brenda] they bought the shop from once worked for us and she's a plain straight out liar who couldn't organise a fight in a chook run.
Brenda claimed she could give only three months books because she lost the rest in the floods -------- She lives on a hill
Brenda took Jill to the wholesalers and bought $1,000 worth of stock saying " I'll fully stock the shop so you won't have to worry for a few weeks " she then went in after hours and cleaned most of it out.
Brenda run up a $200 milk bill plus other items on top of that and booked them down to the new owners, Jill and Chris.
In the solicitors office Brenda stated she didn't want the clause forbidding her to operate in the area after she sold because she was retiring. Brenda has now started down the road in opposition and has sent out flyer's trying to drag in her old customers.
Attie's very wild about this so he's going to boost Jill's sales, bring in some of our old customers and run this Brenda to the wall. I built our last shop sales by 700% so if I can do this for this couple we will kiss Brenda goodbye.----- and that will make me very happy


We are happy little Vegemites, happy as can be

Atta boy, Attie. Give it to her but good.
But even if you don't, I believe the evil get it back ten-fold.
Tell the new owners, luck, and I hope all their hard knocks are behind them.

Way to go, Attie! Give that rat of a person the 1-2 punch where it hurts! I truly believe what goes around, comes around. She'll get what's coming. Best of luck to Jill and Chris (and you!).

Go for it Attie. It is a shame when good people are put upon by bad people. I do believe there is an equalizing force.


Just a BTW - Don't you still have a restauraant? I thought that I saw pix of it on here.
