... Not likely! Honestly, I’m disappointed to hear that kind of talk from you. But it’s scorching. The streets are melting. Anyway, if you’re so against a cooling breeze, why is Sean allowed to have fans running in the kitchen? He was worried that the food would go off. It’s true! Oh, come on! Well, we don’t want the health inspectors in here. Honestly, Peggy! It would be nice to have anyone in here. Just look at the place. It’s empty. It’s always like this when the weather is hot. People go straight home. No, they don’t! They go straight to the Hope and Anchor, where the air conditioning is on 24/7. It’s my opinion that air conditioning is for softies. People with a bit of backbone don’t complain about the weather. Look at the queen. Do you see her hiding in the shade when the temperatures go up? No. There she is, impeccably dressed, smiling and waving and being gracious whatever the weather. OK, I admit that’s admirable, but she also knows that there is a palace full of flunkies waiting at home with a cool drink and a plate of cucumber sandwiches. Hello, George! You look terrible! What’s the matter? It’s the heat. Ever since the Sainsbury’s /Asda merger, management has gone mad. They’re desperate to maintain our market share. We’ve had one marketing campaign after another…I really feel quite faint. What can I get you?…George? Someone catch him. Quick! He’s passed out! OK, I’ve got him. Let’s ease him on to one of the seats. You’re a nurse, Helen. What should we do? I think he’s fainted, but it’s probably best to call an ambulance, just in case. Now, let’s lay him down…Gently! I’ve called the ambulance. He’s coming round. George? Can you hear me? They’ll be here in just a moment. Bring me a cold, wet towel and a glass of water. Do you think he’ll be OK? Could it be a heart attack? Look, here comes the ambulance. Thank goodness! Evening! Where’s the patient? Blimey! It’s bloody boiling in here. Has your air conditioning broken down, missus? I’ll get it fixed tomorrow. Peggy! ( ) How can you tell such a massive fib? I don’t know. I panicked. It looks as if he’ll be fine, but to be honest, this place is a health hazard at these temperatures. I promise I’ll get it fixed. Can I have that in writing?
