As my disposable tableware business expands I am enduring the role of meeting sales reps keen to flog me their wares. It is a difficult task for an impatient person like me who can’t stand meetings longer than 15 minutes. Fortunately I have a partner who has the patient of a saint. On Sunday he shlepped me to Harrogate to an xmas fair in the hope of meeting tableware suppliers. I have never seen so many xmas trees in mid-January. We met 2 potential suppliers at the xmas fair and they were Jewish !!! Must go – there’s a rep due now.
