    I recently went back to work after a surprisingly refreshing sabbatical. When I got back to work, I made the rounds meeting all the staff whereupon I discovered the boss of my boss is a Watford fan, born and bred in Watford. That probably happens all the time to you all Hertfordshire types, but here? Here in America, having that happen to me, one of the only WFC fans I’ve ever known outside of people I’ve met on these he forum pages, would be such an extremely remote possibility, it’s hard to even find an analogy to it.

    Like being a WFC fan for years, then going to Vicarage Road one single time in one’s life and seeing Lloyd Doyley score a goal against the opponent with his head?

    Anyway, I have something to talk about with him that literally no one in the company will understand.

    Some people will go to extraordinary lengths to brown nose the boss.
    Reading up on Watford to claim u support them and finding something on Lloyd Doyley -
    10/10 for effort.
    Good luck with the promotion.

    It'll be really nice for you to go from mopping the floor to doing the fries, I'm sure.

    Do you have a drive-thru? If he really likes you, you should see if he'll let you sit in the intercom box all day with your feet up, just asking what people want and passing the orders on, whilst your lowly colleagues do all the running around.

    why don't we have Mcdonalds in the stadium considering we have links with their CEO? Surely we could come up with a fairly lucrative package that suits both parties.

    No McDonalds associated with WFC ever! Their food is revolting, down-market, juvenile c**p.

    Although I don't particularly like what MacDonald's serves, I would not presume to criticise that food in absolute terms. What revolts some, is pleasing to others. It's similar to a person criticising music they don't like (but others do).

    Put simply - don't eat, or listen to, what you don't like but others do.

    The redeveloped Kop at Anfield had a McDonalds built into it when it opened in 1995. The first two customers were Steve McManaman and Jason McAteer. It closed in 2003 due to it being too quiet on non matchdays.

    What a coincidence Fitz, when are you coming back over? Tom and me would love to see you both, and maybe you could get Chris to come over with you?

    No problems for accommodation, so make it soon mate.

    Well, let’s just say it is the western regional office of the American sales operation of a well known French-owned Japanese auto manufacturer, and the same company I used to work for from the turn of the century until 2014.

    What’s all this Mickey Dee’s stuff?

    Jimbo, I’d love to get over ASAP, but I should probably earn a buck or two first! We’ve been ok since my departure from the working world, but a bit of a cushion in the bank is called for. We’d ove to see Tom and his Mrs again as well as their little baby hornet. We shall see but returning to the Vic, London pints with a few of the forum posters here, and taking in pastoral English life for a few days is often a daydream of mine.
