What’s in a name? What name?

There is no name above the Out Of Favour shop. There never has been, even when it was the only shop TBE (The Boss Erratic) had. Consequently, most people never knew what the shop was called, which is good because it’s not called that anymore.

Now that the second shop, (The New Favourite Shop), has opened, the new name of the New Favourite shop is the old name of the Out Of Favour shop. The Out of Favour Shop is now called something different entirely. But nobody knows any of this because the New Favourite shop doesn’t have a name above it either.

Come meet the locals

Considering the Out Of Favour shop sells ladies clothes there are an awful lot of middle aged men who come to visit us. I called them the MAMAAs: Middle Aged Men Always Around. They don’t come to buy clothes, obviously. They come to talk. And, of course, I have no choice but to listen; I am a captive audience. I can’t tell them they’re talking rubbish, or they’re boring, or to shut up and go away. I’m paid to be nice. Tragically, I think they mistake that for genuine interest.

Let me introduce you:
