I remember when I was a little girl. I had a toy till.
I decided to open a shop.. A penny sweetie shop! Like the one on the corner where you buy newspapers.
Only problem was, that I didn't have a stock of penny sweeties. What I DID have however, was my granny's biscuit tin full of colourful biccies.
So I took them and broke them up into tiny bits and made piles of 'sweeties' and invited all the neighbour kids over to mine and stood proudly behind my plastic till.
My first shop experience also involved customer service when I was challenged by 'Craig' I- think- his- name- was, with the pierced ear.... "That's no' penny sweeties!! That's biscuits!!!"
