had the misfortune to be on the staff of alex smiths when he took over the commercial street premises.mr smith (as all staff had to call him) was a slave driver,but if your face fitted he was great to those certain staff. my face did not fit and was sacked (for a genuine misunderstanding). how he got away with treating people the way i witnessed a great number of staff being treated like dirt,thank god for a change in company law.
