Cherry Call Newsletter June 2012

“Arise Sir Robin…”

You have to admit, it has a certain ring to it. A certain je ne sais quoi. A certain savoir faire, sang froid and all that frenchy malarky.

There we all were, gathered round the Cherry Towers LCD, HD, 3D, TCP and HRT or whatever it is.

The new office telly. My delightful but spendthrift PA Loretta de Cerise chose it without consulting me and it now adorns the back wall almost completely covering my giant poster of Birds of the Norfolk Water Margins 1973. Note to self: “read the cheques that Ms de C plonks in front of you in future”.

“If you’re going to make me and the boffins work on a Saturday to get all the June price reductions on the website when it’s the queen’s jubilee flotilla the least you can do is get a decent tv for us to watch it on whilst we work”.

Loretta’s reminder that it was vital to get our latest super-saver price cuts up and running for our lovely customers asap was, however, faultless in its logic and clear as crystal in its communication.

After all, this month alone we’ve cut the cost of calling all these:

Bahrain, Barbados, Brazil, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Iraq, Lithuania, Mayotte, Mexico, New Zealand, Pakistan, Peru, Russia, San Merino, Senegal, Slovakia, South Africa, St Lucia, Trinida and The Virgin Islands.

So as I sat sipping my Earl Grey, one eye on the team working away, the other on HM sailing serenely down the river – her sweet smile and familiar gloved sending out a wave of warmth and optimism to the dripping, shivering hordes huddled on the banks – my thoughts couldn’t fail to turn to how very similar Her Majesty’s role was to my own.

There she was cheering up the masses with a simple wave – here was I, cheering up the masses with a simple to use discount international phone service.

There she was stoically gritting her teeth and doing her duty as the heavens opened around her. Here was I, stoically coming in to Cherry Towers on a Saturday to do my duty to the customers (and risking terrifying reprisals from Mrs J who must be feared, into the bargain. Apparently I’d promised to drive her to the garden centre.)

Suddenly I could feel the weight of the silver sword on my morning suited shoulder as a quiet yet so-familiar voice intones my name:

“For your services to unbelievably cheap international phone calling services which one always uses to call Charles, Andrew, Anne and Edward when they’re off on their jaunts round the Commonweath, arise Sir Robin…”

My breast swells as I stand to acknowledge the wave of spontanous applause that has broken out around the hall and…

“ROBIN, you’ve spilt your tea! Tell them how to do it.”

Loretta has no music in her soul. But my reverie had indeed resulted in the Earl Grey hitting the Cavalry Twill and, as usual, she had a point.
