Some knob smashed my wing mirror off my van 2 days before the MOT. Got this replaced (Did it myself too, what do you know!) to then find my brake cylinder had collapsed/seized so failed the MOT anyway!

Then....

My flatmate/one of my members of staff was caught being rude to one of my customers. Very rude with no reason. He was sacked, and then proceeded to move out.

I'm now down on rent & staff & back to 7 days per week work....

A Premier store opened on my doorstep which is breaking the terms of being a Premier as its within 1/4 of another store.... This is not good news for me!

ECT sensor has gone on my car... Feck sake!

Other than that, its been a blast and I'm sure to win the EuroMillions tonight

Glad to hear your having a good week!!

The only positive is its the end of the working week, albeit it sounds like you may not stop over the weekend anyway. Keep the chin up.

Already have done. What's annoying is when I first moved in I applied but wasnt allowed due to the 1/4 mile restriction. The other store has 10 other stores.... so it seems one rule for one person....

If your a Premier shop.. You got all your stock from the same supplier, for a cheaper price...

Still.... If I win the EuroMillions tonight, at least I wont have to work tomorrow

Guessing you have a 3 year contract with Booker, might be worth checking the proximity exclusion clause. If they have broken the deal ask for a better discount as a goodwill compensation.

So you effectively give premier your buying power for better/fixed pricing in return for advertising etc?

Booker you mean? If you want to be a Premier, you apply, and then get better deals as you have to offer those deals to the public. For example, it may be BOGOF on certain lines. As a premier customer you would buy one and get one free yourself and pass it on to the customer. As an independent customer you wouldnt get the one free, therefore couldnt offer the deal.

Is just my luck at times...

I did win the EuroMillions last night though. £4.90

I'm so going to be rich...
You could buy some BOGOF Kit-Kats at a Premier store near you :)

I think we all go through periods like this. If it's only a week then you are lucky:)
