The lady looked up at me sourly. “You're ten minutes too late”. They said it would be OK, I pleaded; ten past three - I did ring to check. You see, it's quite hard to find the time and I don't know when...Yikes.
“3pm”, she said sharply. “There's no one available to speak to you now.”
I looked at the bevy of staff loitering around behind the desk, doing nothing much. One woman caught my eye sympathetically. “You can have a quick look round”, Ms Timetable said. “Then come back another time.”
And then what? “Then you fill in a form.” Could I do that now?
“No, because there's no one available to interview you.”
