Wally: The Watering Can
« on: July 05, 2011, 02:11:42 AM »
A possible subtitle for this thread could be 'Why I worked in China, and why I would like to work in China again.'

Or

'So, you think your Chinese boss is bad for making you teach on a Wednesday evening instead of a Tuesday lunchtime, well, imagine the guy who wrote these notices was your boss. Wednesday evening suddenly does not seem like such a rough deal now. And yes, I agree, this is too long for a subtitle.'

What follow are three genuine photographs that were sent to me from a friend that works for a large chain of stores in England.  I have made tiny alterations to the pictures (removing names of the management team that wrote the notices and store logos where spotted).

Welcome to England 2011...

So do I piglet. bfbfbfbfbf Perhaps the "defacer" could secretly arrange to purchase Wally and send the receipt to the boss? Damn! that probably wouldn't work either as he would probably want to charge Wally rent. bibibibibi

Wow, my coked-up, constantly-drunk former boss was more articulate than this.
