yesterday afternoon at a gardening place near the Ascot horse racing place, I met that Pete Malandrone - him what works with Brian. I didn't know if he would talk to me or not but when I said hello he was really decent and not at all rude or sarcastic, or brutal. He didn't punch me or look at me evilish or any such thing.
Some people have said that he might be the brother of the devil, but I can tell you all that he was very civilised and friendly, and not beelzebubby at all. Not much dress sense though - for sure!
He was on his own, buying some seeds and a spade (£14.99) and some string (99p). And a watering can nozzle end bit (reduced to £1.99 from £3.99).
I said, "Hello, are you Pete who works for Queen?"
He said, "Yes I am."
I said, "Will you sign somethink for me?"
He said, "Yes I reckon I will."
I said, "What will you sign?"
He said, "What have you got?"
i had nothing to offer.
He said, "How about your left foot."
I said alright to that and true to his devilish word he pulled down my sock and wrote.... TO FINGERS, WITH RESPECT TO YOUR MOTHER, PETE M.
How nice was that? Totally unexpected too. I asked if I should buy him something but he said no. He suggested I buy three bags of compost for the price of 2... £9.99. Fantastic tip, I thought. But getting the bastards home on my bicycle nearly saw me die, just north of Ascot town centre. And I haven't even got a garden, neither. i got carried away by the excitement of the moment I guess.
Thanks Pete. it was a really memorable encounter. You are a gentleman not the Devil incarnate.
Has anyone else had an unexpected encounter with a member of Queen Staff?
