Harold stared at the girl leaning on his desk, appalled at the scent of cheap cigarettes, beer and spearmint chewing gum. He loathed spearmint. He frowned. “What job?” he said. “I haven’t got a job available.”
“Suddenly,” she said. “Is it because of my tee shirt?”
“No, of course not.” Harold read the slogan. ‘I didn’t make a cock-up. I had one’ and stifled a smile.
“Is it because of my hair?”
Harold shook his head. Pink hair was hardly revolutionary, these days. All the old ladies had it in the seventies. Even poodles had pink hair now. “I don’t know why the Job Centre sent you,” he said. “There isn’t a vacancy available and I don’t know why they thought there was.”
“It’s because I’m a girl, isn’t it?” She leaned forward and chewed gum at him. “That’s sexual discrimination that is.”
