‘That’s 2 T’s in Merrett.’

Robert Padfield was the sort of person who should never have worked in the Printing Trade.
For a year or so, he used to pick Parham up on the way to the Netley Complex.
He was a huge laugh and also good mates with John Freebairn, another apprentice comp.
He resented authority and disliked Ivan “Frecklehead” Merrett (overseer and boss) and was very much a free spirit and so…..
One day in the Comp Room, Robert wrote on the back of his time sheet.

IVAN MERRET IS NOTHING BUT AN Effing C#@T.

He must have forgotten about it and at the end of the day Robert handed his Time Sheet in.
Ivan took one look at what he had written, walked out of his Office, went over to Padfield and said…

“THERE’S TWO T’S IN MERRETT, Robert.”
