Have you ever fancied any of your customers?

"We've got a lot of good-looking women in here but I obviously don't do anything about it

- I'm a married man and I'm too much of a gent.

"

"I'm a ridiculous gigolo, so if it's got a heartbeat and it's female I'll have a go.

There's most of the hairdressers we supply with wine and the barmaid from the pub opposite. If we find a wine she likes we put it on the bottom shelf."

Thomas Jack

Cowbridge, Glamorgan

"One or two, but

only

from afar.

A couple

have fancied me, but I've had to pass on the offers - often people that come in

are the lower end of the market, but you've got to be diplomatic ."

Martin Burns

The Buttery

Stockton-on-Tees, Cleveland

"I've never fancied any of my customers and, as far as I know, no-one has fancied me, although I'm going to be watching people in a different way now."

Saj Hussein

Beer Hut, Dukinfield, Cheshire

"Oh yeah, but I would never do anything about it . I'm

married . I don't think anyone has

fancied me .

We're all in our fifties, no young stuff goes on here."

Sue Challinor

Port Wines

Great Sutton, Merseyside

" I've not fancied anyone, but some people have fancied me. I didn't say a lot when they told me

- the chat up lines weren't any good."

Anne Brooks

Rottingdean Wine

Rottingdean, Brighton

"All the time but I've never done anything about it, I

remain frustrated. It drives you to drink !"

Reasons to be cheerful

I would like to think my outlook on things is generally optimistic. Perhaps that’s a natural consequence of working with something designed to give pleasure. But recently it has become increasingly difficult to ignore a creeping sense of negativity pervading the British wine trade.
