Albert (PS01A) [...]
June (PS01B) [581] I don't Pete's been to me mum's for about six months.
[582] Because I can't remembering him going.
[583] He never goes without Margaret.
[584] She always goes herself, she were down there last night, by herself.
[585] He were at pub.
Karen (PS01F) [586] Mm.
[587] Well, I said to her, told her about not having nowt to eat from that Wednesday morning, er Wednesday dinner time, till Thursday when they went
June (PS01B) [588] Well she took away fish last night for her supper.

[591] Margaret's there every day, she goes out every morning.
[592] Right.
[593] Not that he actually asked her.
Albert (PS01A) [594] [...] years ago about Beryl.
June (PS01B) [595] I told you that's what he said.
Karen (PS01F) [596] And I said, aye up, I don't mean in day-time.

June (PS01B) [598] It's [...] for you with kids.
Karen (PS01F) [599] But I don't, certainly don't mind taking her down once a week or twice a week and taking me turn.
Albert (PS01A) [600] Karen there's no need, no need, you're needed at bloody home.
June (PS01B) [601] I mean, there's only you got kids.
Karen (PS01F) [602] There's no reason your Margaret can't stop when he's on nights.

[610] I mean, he only got to get his clothes on and go to work, the same.
June (PS01B) [611] I don't think he'd go stop.

June (PS01B) [693] It were me dad, it were me dad that didn't take up [...]

Albert (PS01A) [699] But they would fetch 'em and pay for them, and I even today, you cannot buy love.
Karen (PS01F) [700] No.
Albert (PS01A) [701] And it's proven my point, our Dawn wouldn't even think about [...] there.
[702] Our our Corinne goes round when she got to.
Unknown speaker (KB1PSUNK) [703] Don't think about what. [...]
June (PS01B) [704] Our Corinne don't only go round when she got to.

Albert (PS01A) [706] Goes round [...] weeks ago.
June (PS01B) [707] Well, she won't go and stop.
[708] Said she won't go and stop again.

June (PS01B) [710] When we were all on about stopping [...]
Sasha (PS01G) [singing]
Karen (PS01F) [...]
June (PS01B) [711] I don't mind going and doing her shopping and bits, she says, I'm not stopping.
Karen (PS01F) [712] Yeah.
[713] When you were on about that love, what pa was saying about, you know, like every night, that our kids, when, they had their pyjamas on, and they're like, to get hold, [...] I'm lying watching television, I'm usually falling asleep, but I put the kids, [...] you know.
[714] And er, last time I I get in touch, me mum told me, [...] turned round and says to me, I don't want [...] any more mum, I says why, he says, oh she won't let me have pillow [...] and then I then I think if summat else [...] brought to light, I [...] kill her
June (PS01B) [715] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [716] if she had come in
Albert (PS01A) [717] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [718] [...] and that, I know it's a filthy old thing, but it it's comfort ain't it.
June (PS01B) [719] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [720] And when they start [...] let them have the pillow down, they don't feel, they can't get comfortable.
[721] I know it's a little bit trivial like, but it's just, it's still [...]
June (PS01B) [722] She has queer ways me mother.
[723] Karen I I'm forty-seven and I can't work me mother out, so, no chance for you working her out, few years you've known her.
Karen (PS01F) [724] [laugh] No no, I I, I mean, she's always been alright with me really, I mean,y you know, she's not [...] not at all mother-in-law, she's not [...]
June (PS01B) [725] Well, me and me mum's, me and me me mum's never been close.
[726] It were always like, me and our Colin were more or less with me dad, and our Margaret and John were more or less for me mum.
[727] Then when they got older, me dad sort of took our John on, because our John were mechanical minded, and our Colin got pushed out a bit, 'cos our Colin weren't interested in cars.
Sasha (PS01G) [728] [...] I found this.
June (PS01B) [729] Oh yeah, oh that's what that bird.
[730] Yuk.
[731] And our Colin was to be off t' fair, and that, so, me dad sort of went on to our John and pushed our Colin out a little bit.
Karen (PS01F) [732] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [733] But er, me and our Colin's never been me mum's favourite.
[734] It's always been our Margaret.
Karen (PS01F) [735] Mind you, did you see that photo that [...]
June (PS01B) [736] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [737] You are, I mean, I could just work out, [...] I said, your Margaret and John are a lot like you.
[738] She is [...] 'cos she's got Margaret's lips and your nose, but out of all of you, I think your your Jo you can see your John in it, can't you, more than anybody.
Unknown speaker (KB1PSUNK) [739] I always think our John looks more like a Prescott, 'cos he al every time I see him, I see me Uncle Bill more and more.
Karen (PS01F) [740] Yeah, John [...] used to say, years ago about how much that you're, John looks like your Brian, and I don't think he looks anything like it.
June (PS01B) [741] No, I don't.
Karen (PS01F) [742] And she [...] again now, she says like somebody [...] your John look like that bloke next door.
[743] What a load of rubbish, I thought well.
June (PS01B) [744] No.
Albert (PS01A) [...]
June (PS01B) [745] He looks more and more
Karen (PS01F) [746] Aye.
June (PS01B) [747] our Colin's getting more and more like me dad.
Albert (PS01A) [...]
Karen (PS01F) [748] Well, Brian [...] ain't it.
[749] Brian , Brian I think don't like, er,
Albert (PS01A) [750] [...] they are, they're all like that.
[751] All of them. [...]
June (PS01B) [752] And I think our John looks like me Uncle Bill.
Karen (PS01F) [753] Yeah, I think he does.
June (PS01B) [cough]
Karen (PS01F) [754] But then again, he did look like that photo, I think he does look like that photo, but you were younger then,
June (PS01B) [755] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [756] but he does look like Uncle Bill.
[757] Mind you [...] Colin's getting more like your dad every day.
June (PS01B) [758] I know he is.
Karen (PS01F) [759] black welding glasses on, and he turned round and he made me jump.
[760] Like oh, Colin, and then he go like this, you know, [...] isn't it.
[761] You know, he'll come running [...] glasses.
Albert (PS01A) [762] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [763] I can't do it.
[764] And right, he made me heart jump, 'cos he looked just like your dad, and then a few days later, he's in garage again, and Johnny come in and he said, God he said, he gave me a flaming heart attack out there.
[765] I said, why, and he said, he turned round with these glasses on, then he said it was just like John's stood there.
[766] I says, don't tell me, I said, he did the same thing to me the other day, and it were only within a couple of days of each other.
[767] When he puts those glasses on, honestly he's his double.
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Karen (PS01F) [768] I think it's the way he looks, like, if you know what I mean, you know like [...] pull his face and like, look over glasses, I mean, [laugh] he did it to me when [...] did it to Johnny.
[769] He probably thought [...] like.
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
June (PS01B) [770] He's like me dad, er me dad, he never had no patience, and our Colin's just like him.
Karen (PS01F) [...]
June (PS01B) [771] Mind you, I'm like our Colin as well in a lot of ways.
[772] I haven't got a lot of patience.
[773] But where ... where we're better off 'cos Albert, he's calm, where you and our Colin are both fiery tempered
Karen (PS01F) [774] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [775] Where, when I start, Albert's
Karen (PS01F) [776] He, I tell you want he doesn't do, I shouldn't let you hear, but, when he, when him and me are arguing when we were younger, and me dad used to wind Colin up, and wind me up, and I'd get madder and madder, and me dad used to love it.
[777] But looking back, you know, and now, that's what Colin does to me, he winds me bloody up, [...] but I can't help it, because he gets me that wild, I should just, I should, I mean, how can you change his temperament.
June (PS01B) [cough]
Karen (PS01F) [778] I mean, I should just turn round and tell him where to go, but.
Albert (PS01A) [779] I think Colin winds you up summat chronic
Karen (PS01F) [780] I know.
Albert (PS01A) [781] And instead of just
Karen (PS01F) [782] Ignoring him.
Albert (PS01A) [783] Ignoring him.
[784] You don't, he [...] and he [...] going through bloody [...]
Karen (PS01F) [785] Yeah, I know.
Albert (PS01A) [cough]

[797] You know, I [...] he mustn't pushed me, that man, who that keeps asking me out.
[798] I mean, I sometimes, I mean, I admit I'm not most passionate person in the world but I then again I'm not
June (PS01B) [799] You're not by your bloody self.
Karen (PS01F) [800] I'm not frigid or owt
June (PS01B) [801] I can't see, [...] are neither of you passionate?
Karen (PS01F) [802] No.
[803] I keep saying to him, look Colin, I said, I know a couple of times a week's enough for me, but that's worth waiting for, but when you're doing it three times and then get sick of it.

June (PS01B) [884] What they do, they look they look around and they weigh up up pros and cons up, and it it's like these insurance brokers, they ring all over to buy cheapest insurance for you, well, that's what Allied Dunbar are doing.
Karen (PS01F) [885] Well, well, this is a broker, but it's a [...] broker, so that's [...]
June (PS01B) [886] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [887] You see, what it is, it's where they've been behind with their mortgage, we will pay a slightly higher rate, but it's only
Albert (PS01A) [888] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [889] a matter of about, er, I think I think the mortgage now is ten point nine, and we'll be paying eleven point something,
June (PS01B) [890] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [891] So it's only a matter of a
Albert (PS01A) [892] Yeah, but one per cent 's a hell of a lot you know.
[893] It's a penny in the pound.
Karen (PS01F) [894] Yeah, but I mean it, it will drop, it will drop again.
[895] But the thing is, also what I thought of once we gotta us a mortgage and got established, you could always remortgage and go into er like Bradford and Bingley, and come out like that [...]
Albert (PS01A) [896] Yeah, once you get it back up to
Karen (PS01F) [897] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [898] Yeah, well that's
Karen (PS01F) [899] Well, I thought once we get

6 (Tape 059903)

Unknown speaker (KB1PSUNK) [900] It'll not be a dodgy one.
[901] Put it in there, then.
Albert (PS01A) [902] It won't be, it's not forced to be a building society.
Karen (PS01F) [903] No, it isn't.
[904] It gonna [...] to be a building society.
Albert (PS01A) [905] Oh, well, it might be Abbey National.
Karen (PS01F) [906] No, it's come back, it's got Target Finance on it.
Albert (PS01A) [907] Ah.
[908] Well that's o that is a finance company ... and not a building society.
[909] If it says finance, it doesn't mean a building society.
[910] Nine times out of ten, it's a finance company.
[911] Same as er, Mercantile, and
June (PS01B) [912] Well, 'cos I mean, we dealt with Mercantile, we dealt with Key Finance,
Albert (PS01A) [913] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [914] Er ...
Albert (PS01A) [915] We've dealt with summat Wagon.
June (PS01B) [916] Key, that, when we first bo when we first bought our car through that Scottis that bloody bank.
Albert (PS01A) [917] Scottish Amicable.
June (PS01B) [918] Scottish Amicable.
Karen (PS01F) [919] Like Widows.
June (PS01B) [920] They're always ringing up.
[921] They ring up at seven and eight o'clock at night.
Karen (PS01F) [922] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [923] Asking us whether we want to borrow some money.
June (PS01B) [924] Er, asking if there's anything we co , look at him walking about with that [...]
Karen (PS01F) [925] Everything, everything, what oh, papers have got, has got Legal and General on it.
June (PS01B) [926] Mm.
Karen (PS01F) [927] So, I thought, well
Albert (PS01A) [928] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [929] it can't be a a dodgy ...
June (PS01B) [930] I don't think it'll be anything dodgy.
Albert (PS01A) [931] It won't be dodgy.
Karen (PS01F) [932] Oh.
Albert (PS01A) [933] But you can always, easily find out
June (PS01B) [934] What usually happens, though.
Albert (PS01A) [935] All you do, is pick the phone up and and get, oh now, what place do you ring.
[936] I forgot what place you ring, but we're find out, and you ring up to see what they're, what the company's like.
[937] You know, if it's a variable company.
Karen (PS01F) [938] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [939] Things like that, you could do that.
June (PS01B) [940] Different companies take over, I remember that time we borrowed that four thousand pound.
[941] We started out with Key Finance and we ended up with Mercantile Credit, didn't we?
Albert (PS01A) [942] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [943] Changed companies three times, that time we had that four thousand pounds.
Karen (PS01F) [944] You told me about that, yeah.
[945] Well [...] said that it will be a sm a really small building society.
[946] He says, that, 'cos er, it's not
Albert (PS01A) [947] Well.
Karen (PS01F) [948] Big building societies are not prepared to give you rates, and small building societies are wanting to get going
Albert (PS01A) [949] You see, the only trouble with building societies is, it's the same when you buy a pigging house , they put the money on what you've actually borrowed every year.
Karen (PS01F) [950] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [951] Well, finance companies only, you only get the interest on what is left.
June (PS01B) [952] On the money that you owe.
Karen (PS01F) [953] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [954] That's the difference.
[955] And between them both, you can, you could ... I mean you take a ten thousand pound out with a mortgage, mortgage, and you could end up paying what, twenty thousand, twenty four thousand ... back.
Karen (PS01F) [956] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [957] Well, finance company.
[958] You, you borrow ten grand or twenty grand whatever you like to, and you get a certain amount put on that, and that's it, it's fixed.
Karen (PS01F) [959] No.
Albert (PS01A) [960] You don't pay no more.
[961] Say you'll, you'll you'll get twenty thousand five hundred, that, if you buy, if you borrow twenty thousand just for er round figures.
[962] You borrow twenty thousand, and the interest payments works out
June (PS01B) [963] Benji
Albert (PS01A) [964] very high
June (PS01B) [965] He's alright.
Albert (PS01A) [966] It's very high, you know, the interest payments are very high, but for that money you've borrowed you'll only pay say, just for a a figure, five hundred pound back for that twenty thousand, five you know,
Karen (PS01F) [967] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [968] five thousand pound, not.
Karen (PS01F) [969] Not paying it for years and years all the time.
Albert (PS01A) [970] But if you borrow it from a in er mortgage company, you're gonna, you're gonna borrow twice that, you gonna have to pay twice that much back.
[971] Forty grand, you kn that's the only difference, and
Karen (PS01F) [972] I don't mind that so much though, 'cos they say we are paying a lot less back a month than other way.
[973] But I just got one thing that I want, that they gonna send me owt dodgy like a loan shark bloke or owt like that, I mean you, you're bound to be a bit nervous, you know.
Albert (PS01A) [974] No, they won't send a loan shark.
[975] You you can tell loan sharks, straight away, because the A P R's about twenty seven per cent .
[976] Ma maybe twenty nine, even thirty, depending, but if it er, mind you I don't know, because it's a long time since I had a look at 'em.
[977] But, you know, when you when you borrow money, you get er, an interest rate, don't you, over so many,yo you've got to figure out ho how many years you're gonna pay it back.
[978] You know.
[979] If you say, oh, we'll take it over ten years.
[980] Well you've got ten years interest to pay, ain't ya.
[981] So you pay the interest for for nine years, and they start paying your loan off.
Karen (PS01F) [982] We're still having trouble getting insurance, and er, anyway I phoned, and I wrote him again yesterday, and he's given this number, who er, who he's with.
[983] 'Cos he had a right job, [...] got plastic, 'cos he even [...] plastics, I mean that's
Albert (PS01A) [984] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [985] Inflammable, ain't it.
[986] Anyway, er, the bloke who managed to get him insurance, this this, the premises are insured with him,
Albert (PS01A) [987] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [988] so I thought, well, if he's already got, er, part of his insurance without having [...]
Albert (PS01A) [989] Yeah, because he was in, paper, waste paper, and the fire insurance on that must have been colossal.
Karen (PS01F) [990] That's where [...] cardboard and paper.
Albert (PS01A) [991] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [992] Sasha come in here, shut door.
Sasha (PS01G) [993] He's not coming in.
Albert (PS01A) [994] But er, I can't understand why, because I mean, let's face it,he he's only using fibre-glass and they're not that flammable
Karen (PS01F) [995] No, what they're saying is.
[996] Not the flammable, it's the er indemnity, nobody can breathing it in who's in [...]
Albert (PS01A) [997] Oh, yeah, yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [998] They're frightened like, in years to come, like, they're gonna try and make a claim against them 'cos their er, been on the chest, is summat like that.
Albert (PS01A) [999] Yeah.
[1000] I, it's health and safety, yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1001] [...] er.
Albert (PS01A) [1002] Through the health and safety, but.
June (PS01B) [1003] Eighty four we had this extension put up.
Albert (PS01A) [1004] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1005] Sasha come in here.
Albert (PS01A) [1006] But, after saying that,
Karen (PS01F) [1007] There's a draught in [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1008] what you gotta do, is make up your mind, what chemicals you're gonna use
Karen (PS01F) [1009] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1010] and then find out all about
Karen (PS01F) [1011] What ya got?
Sasha (PS01G) [1012] Don't know.
Albert (PS01A) [1013] them particular chemicals and then submit it to the, the insurance company, what them's the only chemicals you use, and the company said this and that.
Karen (PS01F) [1014] [...] they told him that.
Albert (PS01A) [1015] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1016] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1017] And they still
Karen (PS01F) [1018] See he's off again, [...] I bet it is.
[1019] Just started itching. [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1020] Well, he has just flown about.
Karen (PS01F) [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1021] I say, he's just flown round bloody house,
Karen (PS01F) [1022] He has.
Albert (PS01A) [1023] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1024] Oh.
[1025] I bet [...]
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1026] 'cos I thought I'd look.
June (PS01B) [1027] Aye.
Karen (PS01F) [1028] I couldn't [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1029] It might be dust out of his wings.
Karen (PS01F) [1030] Yeah ... I [...] every time I come here. [laugh]
June (PS01B) [1031] Nineteen ninety one, ninety two.
Karen (PS01F) [1032] I must have sensitive eyes
June (PS01B) [1033] Eighteen hundred and fifty two.
Albert (PS01A) [1034] Dear me.
June (PS01B) [1035] We've had that pebble-dash nearly, nearly, it's nearly two years since they did that pebble-dash.
[1036] Cost us two thousand nine hundred, and in two years, we've only paid, eight hundred, nine hundred ...
Albert (PS01A) [...]
June (PS01B) [1037] A hundred
Karen (PS01F) [...]
June (PS01B) [1038] A hundred and forty pound,
Albert (PS01A) [...]
June (PS01B) [1039] we've paid off in two years, Karen.
Karen (PS01F) [1040] How much.
June (PS01B) [1041] A hundred and forty pound.
Albert (PS01A) [1042] In two years.
June (PS01B) [1043] In two years.
Albert (PS01A) [1044] Now, if that had been a finance company, I would have paid a damn sight more.
June (PS01B) [1045] But it cost us ... thirty seven pound a month.
[1046] But, last year, we put, no wait a minute, last year, we paid 'em four hundred and eight pound fifty two, and they put two hundred and seventy two pound fifty interest on.
[1047] So actually all we paid, was
Albert (PS01A) [1048] Thirty seven, per cent
June (PS01B) [1049] Thirty odd, thirty [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1050] That's round about thirty-seven per cent, innit, somewhere around there.
June (PS01B) [1051] Yeah, we paid thirty eight pound off it last year.
Albert (PS01A) [1052] Makes more.
[1053] It's ridiculous, you know, mortgage payments.
[1054] When you think of it.
Karen (PS01F) [1055] I know.
June (PS01B) [1056] and on 'ouse, they put eight hundred and ninety eight pound, you could say, nine hundred pound interest on 'ouse.
Albert (PS01A) [1057] Oi.
[1058] I don't know how they get away with mortgage payments like they are, because, you know,it it's totally unfair,
Karen (PS01F) [1059] They are.
Albert (PS01A) [1060] I mean, alright, we know you're handling large lumps of money, but when you think of it, if you, if you, borrowed it at a different rate, you know, same rate as you could do finance, 'cos which I think the government could do it and make a profit at it.
Karen (PS01F) [1061] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1062] You know what I mean.
[1063] Instead of having all these different mortgage companies, Abbey National and that, the government have er, have er, a whatsname to do it, they're wouldn't be half and a quarter.
[1064] I mean, it happens all over the world, you know, in in the in the especially in the whatsname countries.
Karen (PS01F) [1065] I know.
Albert (PS01A) [1066] Communist countries.
[1067] Everything's owned by the by the government and er, I know it's not a right good thing, like, but if it could work properly, it would be a damn good thing.
June (PS01B) [1068] Watch she don't bite ya.
Albert (PS01A) [1069] I mean, communism in England,
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1070] in it's ... in it's proper form would be a wonderful thing, but er, it's on because er, it's only the rich people what make people poor.
Karen (PS01F) [1071] I know.
Albert (PS01A) [1072] The say as with damn education, like, at bloody Tory sods, they took all blinking, we gi for al for all these people what's going to college, every time they drop on holidays they've got nothing to keep 'em.
Karen (PS01F) [1073] No.
Albert (PS01A) [1074] So I my opinion, what this government's doing is stopping stopping the lower class, well I say lower classes, the lo the the
June (PS01B) [1075] [...] isn't it.
Albert (PS01A) [1076] poorer people, they stop 'em getting educated.
[1077] That I'm I'm almost convinced.
Karen (PS01F) [1078] Yeah.
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1079] It says, everything they're doing, it says, is going back to the eighteenth century, when you hear about these Kath Catherine Cookson days, working for pennies and you can't get educated
June (PS01B) [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1080] un cutting back,
Albert (PS01A) [1081] They're cutting back on education.
June (PS01B) [1082] Oh, you're telling me ...
Albert (PS01A) [1083] They're making it so only the rich can be educated.
Karen (PS01F) [1084] Yeah, trying to turn it back into [...]
June (PS01B) [1085] [...] at the end of the day.
Albert (PS01A) [1086] I mean, our Colin's there waiting for a grant and what's happening.
[1087] Sweet nothing.
[1088] Now we're, it were in bloody paper last ... on Thursday, they don't get nothing when they're on holiday.
Karen (PS01F) [1089] No, they don't,
Albert (PS01A) [1090] I mean, how the hell they supposed at eighteen year old without a job.
Karen (PS01F) [1091] Mm.
Albert (PS01A) [1092] If they have a job, they don't get no grants.
[1093] And how can you have, hold a ... a job down
Karen (PS01F) [1094] I don't think ...
Albert (PS01A) [1095] And do education at same time.
Karen (PS01F) [1096] I'm not sure, but ... I think I don't got my family allowance until I were eighteen, I think, I think they used to give us [...]
June (PS01B) [1097] [...] let me keep our Karen's
Karen (PS01F) [1098] Oh.
June (PS01B) [1099] So I've got a form to fill in, actually.
[1100] It should have gone back last week, and I [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1101] It'll all stop when she gets her grant through.
June (PS01B) [1102] Don't knock me.
[1103] She said not necessarily.
[1104] I think it will stop them [...] thought shit I'm not bloody going to declare it, [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1105] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1106] She applied for a grant, and in, er in career, it says like,
Karen (PS01F) [1107] Sasha [...]
June (PS01B) [1108] you'll, like you you [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1109] No, you'll rip it.
June (PS01B) [1110] Left home, you know, we are, like, say our Karen to leave home.
Albert (PS01A) [1111] Aye.

Albert (PS01A) [1114] Get up here.
Karen (PS01F) [1115] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1116] They used to give 'em subsidies to help 'em pay the rent, they've stopped that, so they've either to gerra job, to help put supplement to pay in the, you know, their housing accommodation, or they've got to stop school.
[1117] In summer holidays, er, the grant don't ... they take that six weeks
Albert (PS01A) [1118] Off the grant.
June (PS01B) [1119] off the grant, so that actually they get six weeks money less, through the year, than they should do, where they're used to paying all through year
Albert (PS01A) [1120] For twelve months, now they don't.
June (PS01B) [1121] Now, they don't get anything for that six weeks that they're not at school.
Karen (PS01F) [1122] No.
June (PS01B) [1123] So, you know, any girl that's not living at 'ome.
[1124] She got to go out and work for that six weeks, to, to earn the money [...] feed the [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1125] And where can you get that bloody kind of money, only [...] corner.
Karen (PS01F) [1126] Yeah, but where can you get a job.
June (PS01B) [1127] Well, that's it.
Karen (PS01F) [1128] Where can you job.
Albert (PS01A) [1129] Well, it's forcing the girls on to streets, ain't it.
Karen (PS01F) [1130] Yeah.

June (PS01B) [1132] I mean, they're begging 'em you to ke they're begging you to keep 'em on at school, and yet you can't get no help to keep 'em on.
Karen (PS01F) [1133] It's like other day, [...] we were talking to this bloke like, and he were on about businesses, says you can't underst , oh he said something about finances, [...] how difficult it is to get finance to start a business up [...] and er, he said, I know, he said you can't me, he said.
[1134] You seen all these adverts about starting your own business, you know, governments like, you know, doing all these courses and making it out as though it's it's dead easy to get fi , you know [...] hitting your head against a brick wall
June (PS01B) [1135] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1136] The only way you can start a business, is by starting it without insurance
June (PS01B) [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1137] straight off your own back, and then, you know, after it's running, get insurance.
Karen (PS01F) [1138] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1139] That ho ninety five per cent of firms do that.
June (PS01B) [1140] [...] regulate.
[1141] I mean it's [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1142] I mean, look at laddo round there what's been broke into.
[1143] He's no insurance ... no insurance whatsoever, 'cos he couldn't afford it.
Karen (PS01F) [1144] I know.
[1145] Ours is gonna us about a thousand pound for insurance.
June (PS01B) [1146] Oh.
Albert (PS01A) [1147] Well, a thousand pounds not a lot, Karen, but er ... it all depends what the, what what you gonna be insured for?
Sasha (PS01G) [1148] It's not.
Albert (PS01A) [1149] I mean, even that, you're gonna you you gonna be insured for breaking in and break-ins and
Karen (PS01F) [1150] Yeah, I think it's everything.
[1151] I think it's [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1152] That's what I mean, so what you're actually getting for your, thousand pound isn't a lot of money.
Karen (PS01F) [1153] No.
[1154] I think it's covered for like, like you say, like for some reason, say you had a fire, and you had to stop work.
Albert (PS01A) [1155] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1156] I think it's covered for that.
[1157] Covered for personal injury, er, covered for hundred thousand, for like, that's what trailers, [...] they've got [...] trailers in.
[1158] It's covered for everything.
Albert (PS01A) [1159] I mean, you imagine somebody breaking in and setting fire to a trailer.
Karen (PS01F) [1160] I mean, it's a lot of money when you think Norma's paying nine hundred pound just for her car.
[1161] For that Cabriolet.
[1162] To me, you think phew a thousand pound, but cer I mean, it's it ain't really very much, no.
June (PS01B) [1163] It's a high insurance for a car.
Albert (PS01A) [1164] What for car?
June (PS01B) [1165] [...] yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1166] Right [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1167] What how how comes that, then?

[1347] It is a moo cow.
Karen (PS01F) [1348] I mean like er, Eileen was saying summat yesterday, she said, she said I don't er, have [...] at home, she said, I decided to [...] I said I'm frightened, and sometimes [...] knows I'm not frightened.

Karen (PS01F) [1351] I mean, that
Albert (PS01A) [1352] You might, and then again, you might be a millionaire inside three months.

Karen (PS01F) [1356] You just got to do it.
Albert (PS01A) [1357] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1358] I thought about it, and thought about it, and then then changed my mind.
[1359] But this time I decided it's what I want to do and bugger it.
[1360] If we don't sell it, we we haven't lost anything.
Albert (PS01A) [1361] Oh well.
June (PS01B) [1362] [...] sell it till we move.
Karen (PS01F) [1363] I honestly think myself ...
June (PS01B) [1364] As long as we're not worse off than what we were before we moved.
Karen (PS01F) [1365] I honestly think meself, that I might have a have a couple of hard months, maybe three, first three months might be a bit difficult for me.
Albert (PS01A) [1366] Oh, it probably will be.
Karen (PS01F) [1367] Well, I think, once he gets established, and once he starts getting work in, I think meself, that work will start, won't say rolling in, but I think the work'll start coming in after about three months and I can get established.
Albert (PS01A) [1368] Oh we can always lend you a couple of ten pences.
Karen (PS01F) [1369] I know.

Karen (PS01F) [1404] But er, I mean, I says, can't we manage without him, can't you manage by yourself, but Colin says he can't really, because
Albert (PS01A) [1405] He needs somebody.
Karen (PS01F) [1406] Yeah.
[1407] Well, Colin's gotta be able to do a lot of office work, he's gonna be out doing quotes, you know what I mean, so he's going have to have somebody there.
June (PS01B) [1408] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1409] Yeah.

Karen (PS01F) [1429] No.
Albert (PS01A) [1430] Oh.
Karen (PS01F) [1431] I ju I mean, it, now it's just getting me, more depressed than nowt else, I mean, I just wish that they'd phone and say yeah, we've got you a insured.
June (PS01B) [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1432] And then, I mean, 'cos we daren't say that to accountant know, to have 'ouse valued, 'cos what's point in, I mean, anybody said to us, er, get it sent off, you'll find, you're, somebody will insure ya.
[1433] But what if they don't.
June (PS01B) [1434] You've lost all your [...] ain't ya.

[1438] Why don't you get a free ... put on market.
June (PS01B) [1439] No, the on the company's, that's coming up with all the money got to ...
Albert (PS01A) [1440] Oh aye.
June (PS01B) [1441] do the valuation.
[1442] And they ought to form [...] value of what, so they know how much it's worth, what the company that's gonna earn them the money want the money for the valuation.
Karen (PS01F) [1443] It's just another way of making a bit more money out it.
June (PS01B) [1444] That's it.
Albert (PS01A) [...]
June (PS01B) [1445] Well, it's same as when you buying and selling 'ouses.
[1446] You [...] when it comes out, when, the people that's, mind me cigarette, darling, the people that's gonna buy your 'ouse, who, mortgage company comes out and values it, they've got that to pay as well haven't they.
Karen (PS01F) [1447] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1448] The same as, I, them that buys our 'ouse, they'll have to pay whatever it cost for 'em to value our 'ouse, see if it's worth lending money, we'll have the same thing with er bungalow, down there.
Karen (PS01F) [1449] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1450] It's only money [...] I mean, how long are they 'ere.
Karen (PS01F) [1451] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1452] Ten minutes.
Albert (PS01A) [...]
June (PS01B) [1453] Mean, that woman come out, when when we had this done, didn't she,
Albert (PS01A) [1454] Mm.
June (PS01B) [1455] To to see if it were satisfac she weren't here three minutes.
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1456] No.
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1457] What was that for, for [...]
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
June (PS01B) [1458] You know when we had extension put up.
Karen (PS01F) [1459] Oh yeah, yeah,
June (PS01B) [1460] Well,
Karen (PS01F) [1461] Did it [...] value.
June (PS01B) [1462] They sent they sent 'em out from er, Abbey National and we had to pay, well we did pay 'im fifty pound, people that put the building on paid.
Sasha (PS01G) [1463] [...] she keeps getting up.
June (PS01B) [1464] She's not.
Sasha (PS01G) [1465] She is.
June (PS01B) [1466] She'll bite you, and our Whisky can [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1467] She scratched him outside, didn't she.

Karen (PS01F) [1469] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1470] Bloody ridiculous.
June (PS01B) [1471] It's all a bloody money making racket.
Karen (PS01F) [1472] Another thing is, I'll tell why we don't want er, they always having valuations, they are, they come and value it, and then they give us money.
[1473] That means we're gonna be paying extra eleven thousand with money we ain't got.
June (PS01B) [1474] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1475] That's another reason we're daren't send it off.
Albert (PS01A) [1476] Yeah.
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1477] Yeah, because if ya, if ya, get it before ya start your business.
[1478] You've still got it to pay as soon as you get it.
Karen (PS01F) [1479] Yeah.
[1480] Trust them, because it's in their [...] at the moment.
[1481] Well, I still believe in [...] and I don't pushed around and say, no you can't have money, no you can't get insured, and so that means [...] others.
June (PS01B) [1482] You haven't lost anything have ya?
Karen (PS01F) [1483] Well, just er disappointment, I suppose.
[1484] For what
June (PS01B) [1485] Well, yeah,
Karen (PS01F) [1486] Then again, I mean, I [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1487] There's always summat else you can go and do.
Karen (PS01F) [1488] You know that, doing that, fabricating, and things like that, you know like actual welding and that type of [...] Er, we wouldn't make as much money out of that as you probably would
June (PS01B) [1489] No.
Albert (PS01A) [1490] No, you'll be, you'll be stuck to it, all time, and it's not good for 'im.
Karen (PS01F) [1491] No.
Albert (PS01A) [1492] And it kills your eyes welding.
June (PS01B) [1493] Benjy.
Albert (PS01A) [1494] But as he said to me, why don't you go [...] welding.
[1495] I says, the point is I've got bad eyes as it is,
Karen (PS01F) [1496] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1497] what's the point in making them worse.
Karen (PS01F) [1498] I know.

Karen (PS01F) [1506] Where are you, when it's gonna be, he said corner, then we'll make an office and a little canteen in that anyway.
[1507] Then there's another long unit right at side of it, just enough to get one trailer in.
[1508] I said, I said, if we do get going, and we do start finding out that it's going alright, he'll turn that, into like er, shop er, blasting shop.
[1509] And like,
Albert (PS01A) [1510] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1511] A spray area, then
June (PS01B) [1512] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1513] Employ a sprayer.
[1514] So, I mean, we know what we want, but ... it's them and not us, I mean, it is frightening to start a business up, 'cos we don't know how much work we'll be getting, but, I mean,
June (PS01B) [1515] Well, it's same for anybody starting any business, ain't it, you don't know if it's gonna work [...] as well.
Albert (PS01A) [1516] It might go well for the first three or four months, and then all of a sudden we might have a lapse in a few months ,
Karen (PS01F) [1517] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1518] you could be struggling to keep it above ...
Karen (PS01F) [1519] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1520] and especially, you know, these bloody big firms, they do not like paying bloody bills.
Karen (PS01F) [1521] No.
Albert (PS01A) [1522] I mean, you could have as as much as two or three thousand pound owed to ya, but your business will still go under.
Karen (PS01F) [1523] Yeah, because of it.
Albert (PS01A) [1524] Because of it.
Karen (PS01F) [1525] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1526] They don't look on them things, how much you've got owed out to ya.
[1527] I know.
June (PS01B) [1528] When you look you see everything's a bloody risk,
Albert (PS01A) [1529] Let's hope he gets off the floor.
June (PS01B) [1530] walking across roads a risk, ain't it.
Karen (PS01F) [1531] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1532] It's ju just if you've got the nerve to do it.
Albert (PS01A) [1533] It's a risk with these buggers, what's in power, aye, it's no matter what whose in power.
Sasha (PS01G) [1534] I got [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1535] I think if labour gets in, you'll not get it tough at all.
June (PS01B) [cough]
Albert (PS01A) [1536] I can tell you that, now.
June (PS01B) [1537] Oohh.
Sasha (PS01G) [1538] What?
June (PS01B) [1539] Oohh.
Karen (PS01F) [1540] You feel like [...] er, that's whose, like ex soldiers [...] throughout the company, and he said to Colin er, he said, how many people are you thinking about employ , our Colin seems to think there'd be enough work to keep 'im going, like, he says, he says, well how many people are you thinking about employing, he says, only only me and me [...] like, it's oh, oh, he says, there's plenty of work to keep two of going, he said, I thought you employed about six.
[1541] So if he thinks that Colin do have six working for him, and he's got enough work for six, then surely there's gonna be plenty of work for two of 'em.
Albert (PS01A) [1542] Yeah, but what he means by six is, he gets the jobs done quicker [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1543] Yeah, but then you still got six wages to pay out, haven't ya.
June (PS01B) [1544] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1545] That's it.
[1546] He probably will have six later on, if he gets it off, but ... the thing is, I mean, he'll need somebody to drive wagons round yard, and half the time,y you know, he'll be sat doing nothing, scratching his nose.
[1547] Them's the people he's got to be wary of, the people that want a job, but don't wanna work for it.
[1548] There's a hell of a lot in Broadway and Stainford,
Karen (PS01F) [1549] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1550] round about here.
Karen (PS01F) [1551] Mind Lee's a, Lee's a good worker, he says that, he wants, you know, best worker what he can [...]
June (PS01B) [cough]
Albert (PS01A) [1552] Yeah, but I mean, working for a mate, is different to working for a firm.
Karen (PS01F) [1553] Yeah.

Karen (PS01F) [1645] To be quite honest, without talking like a school [...] on a fence.
[1646] They're not very happy, they ain't been happy for a while, but it's getting worse,wh is, what is them now is, you know I say things to Colin, and Co I mean, Colin'll tell me like, you know, you know, [...] over there, and er, he's latest thing is, they built this little office.
[1647] You know when you go into [...] on the right, er a coal-house and a wash- house ain't there.

Karen (PS01F) [1660] Sasha, behave.
June (PS01B) [1661] I don't think I know anybody that hundred per cent 'appy.
[1662] Well, I think it's got a lot to do with the climate we're living in, you know,
Karen (PS01F) [1663] Rushing about
June (PS01B) [1664] There's that much, there's that many people out of work, there's and [bird chirping]

Karen (PS01F) [1671] No I think every [...]
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1672] I think everybody's got themselves summat some faults.
June (PS01B) [1673] Nobody's hundred per cent perfect.
Karen (PS01F) [1674] I mean, I don't think Colin's unhappy where he wants to do, then an offers an offer, like either they go in and make [...] share, but if they work all day.
Albert (PS01A) [1675] No, it's not er, it's so much ... I mean, he's at work all day, [...] and he works all bloody hours that God sent, when they want, when they got down,
Karen (PS01F) [1676] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1677] and what happens.
[1678] He's got to build an office where he can go and let, sit in it, can't abide [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1679] That's right.
Albert (PS01A) [1680] Summat wrong somewhere.
June (PS01B) [1681] Now look at our Margaret and Peter.
[1682] They've got no family, so they've got no pressures like that, they haven't got any money problems ... well they're not 'appy.
[1683] They live two entirely separate lives.
Karen (PS01F) [1684] Yeah, I know.
[1685] There's is just a marriage of er convenience.
June (PS01B) [1686] Convenience.
Karen (PS01F) [1687] Innit it.
Albert (PS01A) [1688] Yeah, it's convenient [...]
June (PS01B) [1689] It's a way of life, they've lived together that long, like, they don't want to [...]
June (PS01B) [1690] If when you and Pete had that trouble, if our Margaret had er been working, I honestly think she would have left Pete.
Karen (PS01F) [1691] I know.
June (PS01B) [1692] But the only thing that our Margaret could come up with, was why should I, why should I leave me home and sell up, she said, when all my life, he's had money from the house.
[1693] He'll have the money from the house, plus a wage every week.
[1694] She said, and what will I have, she said, just the money from the house.
[1695] She said, and where do I live.
[1696] You know, he can move back home with his mum, she said, I suppose I can go back home to me mum, well then I've got to look for a job, you know.
Karen (PS01F) [1697] Mm.
June (PS01B) [1698] And I honestly think that was the only reason that she stopped for Pete.
Karen (PS01F) [...]
June (PS01B) [1699] Yes.
[1700] Because, she's she, he he were gonna get a wage every week.
Karen (PS01F) [1701] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1702] You know, and she worked all them years, and then when she weren't working, she have no money coming in every week.

Albert (PS01A) [1705] Aye, not with Bl not with [...]
June (PS01B) [1706] Yeah, but you could see, you could see, that, I mean Pete were getting about hundred and twenty pound a week.
Albert (PS01A) [1707] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1708] We'll he had his money he won't have to touch, he could live on that hundred and twenty pound a week.
Albert (PS01A) [1709] Oh, aye,
June (PS01B) [1710] And he could start again.
[1711] Find another woman and buy another house and start again.
Karen (PS01F) [1712] Mm.
[1713] I mean like Jeremy and Kay, I mean, they're not happy.
[1714] They pretend they are, but I mean like, he's he's
June (PS01B) [1715] They've got to do, aren't they, I mean, after all bloody [...] harm they caused.
Karen (PS01F) [1716] Yeah, you know, you know how flaming miserable and mardy he is.
June (PS01B) [1717] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1718] He's another one.

Albert (PS01A) [1724] Exactly.

June (PS01B) [1855] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1856] we've been married twelve years, and we've moved three times, so we haven't moved as much as them, really.
Albert (PS01A) [1857] No.
[1858] No.
June (PS01B) [1859] I couldn't keep moving and [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1860] I couldn't move like that.
June (PS01B) [1861] I mean, a couple of moves, is fair enough, yeah, but bloody twelve.
Karen (PS01F) [1862] No.
June (PS01B) [1863] And it's not as if they made money every time they moved, 'cos they haven't, 'cos they lost money on that 'ouse, there.
Albert (PS01A) [1864] Yes.
Karen (PS01F) [1865] I [...] won't it.
June (PS01B) [1866] Well, Chris said they moved because er,
Sasha (PS01G) [...]
Karen (PS01F) [1867] Give up.
June (PS01B) [1868] er, transport, you know.

Karen (PS01F) [1870] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1871] That's why they moved.
[1872] But they moved down, they moved from 'ere because he says, er,

Karen (PS01F) [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1877] Same thing, 'cos it's noisy down there.
Karen (PS01F) [1878] Yeah.
Sasha (PS01G) [1879] I could scare you, Auntie June.
June (PS01B) [1880] Could ya.
Sasha (PS01G) [1881] Yeah.
June (PS01B) [1882] Go on then.
Karen (PS01F) [1883] Why people think it's noisy for us on a double main road, but it ain't really.
June (PS01B) [1884] Well, you get used it in don't ya.
[1885] When our Norma come and stop here, she she was,
Albert (PS01A) [1886] Used to sleep [...]

Karen (PS01F) [1888] No.
June (PS01B) [1889] But we never hear it.
Albert (PS01A) [1890] You don't hear it.
Karen (PS01F) [1891] No, we didn't.
[1892] I remember one [...] first night we stopped there, buses were coming at crack of dawn,
June (PS01B) [cough]
Albert (PS01A) [1893] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1894] it must have been about four or five o'clock in morning, and now we never hear any traffic.
June (PS01B) [1895] No.
Albert (PS01A) [1896] No.
[1897] Perhaps you get used to.
Karen (PS01F) [1898] Yeah.
[1899] But we don't hear many people, on a road like that.
June (PS01B) [1900] No.
[1901] I were thinking about that bungalow, and, well actually it's as far from ... our road, nearly as far from our road to there, as what is it from bungalow window to road.
Albert (PS01A) [1902] Where to ... yeah.
Sasha (PS01G) [1903] [...] it really is [...]
June (PS01B) [1904] Know, thinking about people walking back as far as t' shopping my point.
[1905] There nowt much difference in, from t' garden ...
Karen (PS01F) [1906] I think the only trouble over there, is your to gonna have people parking in front of ya gate, like when they go to the chip shop.
Albert (PS01A) [1907] They won't
June (PS01B) [1908] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1909] They won't 'cos 'cos er, I'm afraid if they do, I shall be out straight away at 'em.
June (PS01B) [1910] Well, it's only a matter of parking at, parking your own car as well
Albert (PS01A) [1911] I'll clamp the bugger, I'll buy a wheel clamp and wheel clamp it.
[1912] Park here at your risk.
June (PS01B) [1913] It'll be awkward getting cars in and out, when you know, with one more to be out and, all these cars in road, like, but.
Albert (PS01A) [1914] That's the only difficulty.
Karen (PS01F) [1915] You'll probably end up say, leaving one on road all night.
June (PS01B) [1916] Yeah.
Karen (PS01F) [1917] Don't hurt [...] I mean, [...]
Albert (PS01A) [1918] Oh, not leaving one on bloody road [...]
June (PS01B) [1919] Well, we could put 'em at night time, it's just through time, if one backs in, comes in behind other.
Karen (PS01F) [1920] Yeah.
Albert (PS01A) [1921] It's a one way street and all ain't it, that makes it worse.
June (PS01B) [1922] Why does it make it worse?
Karen (PS01F) [1923] Well, we don't have to have a problem, do we?
Albert (PS01A) [1924] No, but I mean.

Corrinne (PS01D) [4150] Set off with the ... towing Julie's car and the tow rope just snapped in two, and it jerked both cars and it cut off the fuel.
Albert (PS01A) [4151] Well he should have just zoomed off!

Corrinne (PS01D) [4199] I hope not.
Albert (PS01A) [laugh]

[4219] ... All the rest are at [...] ... fortunately.
June (PS01B) [4220] How long will you finish this?
[4221] Middle of next year or end of next year?
Corrinne (PS01D) [4222] It'll be July when we take the exams.
[4223] That's when the course will actually finish.
Albert (PS01A) [4224] What, this July?
June (PS01B) [4225] No!
Corrinne (PS01D) [4226] No.
[4227] That's right.
[4228] But I don't know how long it is before I get my results back.
[4229] But ... you can get a post ... as a medical secretary in a hospital or a G P without ... having your full diploma.
[4230] If yous let it, cos ... to get the full diploma you've got to get your two skills which is medical ... audio, and medical shorthand, you've got to have them two skills ... to get the diploma.
[4231] And you've also got four papers ... ethics and ... etiquette ... you got an English one, a medical aspects one, and a clerical skills one.
[4232] Not a clerical skills one, but, office procedures.
[4233] And you've got to pass all them, plus your two skills ... to get the diploma.
[4234] But you can resit any what you fail the following year.
[4235] Mm. [clears throat]
Albert (PS01A) [4236] Mm!
Corrinne (PS01D) [4237] Teresa says, the only one what presents any difficulty is usually the medical aspects one.
Albert (PS01A) [4238] Well why should that present anything different?
Corrinne (PS01D) [4239] Because it covers such a wide area.
[4240] It says the English paper you only need, you only need seventy five percent ... for your ... erm ... it's seventy five percent pass rate.
[4241] You've got to get above seventy five to pass.
[4242] Yeah, it's
Albert (PS01A) [4243] That's quite high that, you know, seventy five percent!
Corrinne (PS01D) [4244] Well it's got to be ain't it?
[4245] The office procedures, she said, is simple anyway, and yet, ethics and etiquette is a, she said, and your teacher works you that hard and it just drills in anyway!
Albert (PS01A) [4246] No, but, seventy five percent is a high pass rate.
June (PS01B) [4247] Well I don't know ... who she is that sends letters out to your nana, but she's bloody useless!
[4248] She misses more words out than she gets in!
[4249] And she just writes over them in, in pen!
Albert (PS01A) [laugh]
Corrinne (PS01D) [4250] If it's her computer though, they might just ... erm, thingy it and change it to suit them.
Albert (PS01A) [4251] Well it wouldn't be on ... word processor.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4252] You don't know.
Albert (PS01A) [4253] Cos it's,the you're supposed to ... that's what it's for so you can check all your spellings.
June (PS01B) [4254] A lot of them letters that come out are already done and you just delete
Corrinne (PS01D) [4255] Gonna say that's ... they're all on word processor that's what I'm saying.
[4256] Eh!
[4257] I got a pass, oh I got a distinction for, we did er ... like mock exam for ... word processing, I got a pass. [laugh]

Corrinne (PS01D) [laugh]
Albert (PS01A) [4273] I sa I said well who do you think?
[4274] I says, I'm over- qualified for work, I says, and it looks like she's gonna end up that way if you're not careful!
[4275] She says, oh!
[4276] So ... she said, I think she's ever so pretty!
[4277] I says, aye.
[4278] Said, pity her manners don't blink er mannerisms don't match her ... [laughing] looks [] !
Corrinne (PS01D) [4279] Teresa's on about ... erm ... a she were asking me if anybody'd be interested into going on to higher er education after this?
[4280] And I [...]
Albert (PS01A) [cough]
Corrinne (PS01D) [4281] college yet!
Albert (PS01A) [4282] Yeah, but you get, you don't get no grant for that.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4283] What college?
[4284] [...] . But if it's only a part-time so you can actually work part-time that's the difference.
Albert (PS01A) [4285] Yeah.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4286] Fantastic salary if you get qualified!
Albert (PS01A) [4287] It's alright if you can get day release from your
June (PS01B) [cough]
Albert (PS01A) [4288] work ... to do it.
[4289] That's what you want to be after, day release.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4290] Yeah.
[4291] They're trying to make our course into a three day a week.
[4292] Erm, nine till six at night.
June (PS01B) [4293] It's a long day though.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4294] That's what I said.
[4295] I mean,
Albert (PS01A) [cough]
Corrinne (PS01D) [4296] you get ... we get a mental block after three ... [laughing] three o'clock us [] !
Albert (PS01A) [4297] You do.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4298] I mean, doing shorthand for four hours a day, it's ... too much!
[4299] It's far too much!
June (PS01B) [4300] Well, just think, when you're working full-time you'd be working nine till five.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4301] I know, but it's different when you're concentrating
June (PS01B) [4302] Mind you
Corrinne (PS01D) [4303] on studying and when you're concentrating on working.
June (PS01B) [4304] Billy , er Billy 's ... one of Billy 's daughter-in-laws, she, she does it part-time.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4305] What, medical secretary?
June (PS01B) [4306] Yeah.
[4307] She's er
Corrinne (PS01D) [4308] Good money at part-time!
June (PS01B) [4309] I know.
[4310] That's what erm ... that's ... which one of them, who were it telling me?
[4311] Er ... I don't know whether it ... were the young lad that comes in, or whether it was Jes that were telling me.
Albert (PS01A) [4312] Mhm.
June (PS01B) [4313] I can't imagine it being Jes.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4314] I think it were Jes what were telling you [...] .
June (PS01B) [4315] Well it might have been Jes ... cos ... I don't know tha well they've got, I think they've got two children.
[4316] And she were doing it full-time and then she went ... she had children and then she went part-time.
[4317] But I don't think she's working [...] .
Corrinne (PS01D) [4318] That's one advantage of being medical secretary
June (PS01B) [4319] I think she's just had another baby or summat.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4320] cos if you get in a big organization like N H S, they provide a creche.
Albert (PS01A) [4321] Mm.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4322] And thi I mean, you don't have to pay for the creche cos it comes in the, it's part of your
Albert (PS01A) [4323] Well
Corrinne (PS01D) [4324] thingy.
Albert (PS01A) [4325] part of your job innit?
June (PS01B) [4326] It's like nurses at hospital innit?
[4327] And they've got a hospital.
Corrinne (PS01D) [4328] Mm.
