Just been to my bank in Airdrie ( actually it is partly my bank as it is the only independant bank in the UK and owned by customers and i have been a customer for over ten years)
Anyway behind me in the line were two young boys reaking of alcohol (11.30am) and there language was flowery &£#%<€¥+* to say the least.
I learned that they had been drinking till 6am then slept on someones floor - Getting up,going for a haircut and now getting what was left in thier bank accounts (£23) before starting the party again.
One of the boys tapped me on the shoulder
"Mate" "it's his birthday" pointing at his pal "He's 21 today"
"congratulations i say"
"You that guy who came to my school and spoke about "attitude"
Yes i said nervously "how you doing now,achieved your goals?
I'm doing alright -- no working the noo but my uncle is going to get me into that pure mad gas board -- maybe an apprentice
Go for it i say ... What else could i ... Oh and aim high - think
And work and set standards for self and the drink thats another story...
They say we have done enterprise in Scotland
