Marjorie Shaw at the Make up Desk on her 50th birthday.
My birthday was on a Thursday when we had Communication half hour in the morning and as I hadn’t been working on the Wednesday late night, the department had told everyone, including the customers what they were doing in decorating my desk! Consequently, I had phone calls from customers during the day wishing me happy birthday and visits from others with the same message. At the time, the make-up desk was opposite the main cash desk and each department had to come to collect the till float for the day so the whole shop and those who had been in the department the previous evening knew that it was my birthday – there was no point in trying to give the wrong age!!
