At the end of the night, the last people in the back bar of the Golden Fleece were Steph (landlady), Caroline (bar staff), myself and two accountants enjoying the real ale and listening to our ghost stories.
Steph went to shut the till down, and as she turned away, there was a loud ping as it shot back open again. Its never done that before, so she shut it again and as she turned away, yes, it pinged back open again. People laughed and Arkwright’s till in Open All Hours was mentioned, so Steph tried to close it again.
For a third time, it pinged open as she turned away. After requests from several people to let the till stay shut, it eventually did – on the eighth attempt. If this becomes a regular thing, I suspect its a fault in the till. We shall see…
Mondays and Friday do seem to be the key days for strange things happening.
