Thread Name: BS: working NewYears Eve
Subject: RE: BS: working NewYears Eve
Back to the subject, (If a little late) I was working overnight at one of the new British Directory Assistance firms, and we had our busiest night shift so far.
As the staff on nights tend to be the forgotten army, and having noticed that even our local Tesco (24 hr superstore) had closed its 24 hr garage as I was heading to work, I left the folowing penned on on of our notice boards.

At Tesco the garage was closed; the staff gone,
But Direct'ry assistance were still working on.
So all through the night "The Number" were there
With Julie, Joy, Janet, Mike, Nigel, & Clare.*
Through midnight we worked to see '03 begin
As the phones were all ringing the New Year in.

*(and Tony on security!)

No tune was intended, but it seems Clement Moore-ish
