Manny: The Denouement

I asked Manny why his stall wasn't here yesterday. He told me that when he woke up at his usual hour of 3 a.m. to go to the market he decided that he couldn't be bothered to come in. So he went back to sleep, and then when he woke up at the far more civilised hour of 7.30 he got up, went and got his hair cut, and spent the day in the pub.

Sounds very sensible to a girl who struggles to be up at 7 a.m. to open the shop at 9 a.m.

Matthew is more concerned at the tempting / disastrous example it sets to those who are their own boss...


  1. It's tempting irrespectitve if you're own boss or taking someone else's shilling. More so surely if it's not your own.

  2. Ah, but if you're your own boss you can get away with it...
