Avenues and Alleyways

Call Centre Tony and I have been a double act and a partnership for so long, it’s hard to imagine life without him. He likes to think of us like Arthur Daley and Terry in The Minder; he’s the cock-sure wheeler-dealer and I’m the put upon Dennis Waterman character.

I disagree. I think that we are more like The Persuaders. I’m the suave and sophisticated Roger Moore, while he is the rough and ready Tony Curtis with bad hair, leather gloves and an aversion to walking down stairs.

Working in the Call Centre will never be the same again. It’s the end of the canteen confessional; it’s the end of sharing our Wankerdaq portfolios; it’s the end of an earache – maybe I’ll get some work done now.
