Young lady: "Hi I won't keep you long" Me (thinking, but not saying): "You've got that right". Young lady (flashing an ID card): "I'm here from firefighters. We're talking to people about fire safety". Me: "Uh ... right ..." (she looks about eighteen, heavily made up, wearing a blue dress that's too tight and split to the thigh ... basically the most unlikely looking firefighter I've ever seen. I seriously doubt she's from the fire brigade.). YL: "I'm sure you saw what happened on the news?..." Me: "No". YL: "What happened to Grenfell tower" Me (thinking): "Has she noticed this is a two-storey mid-terrace, not a tower block". Me (out loud): "Who do you work for?" YL: "Mini firefighters. It's a new company ..." Me: "So you're selling something? ..." YL: "Yes, we have this ..." (No doubt sensing her window of opportunity closing she thrusts out something that looks like a red can of deodorant. If it's a fire extinguisher it might put out a vigorous birthday candle.) Me: "No thanks not interested".
