Meet the FreeTeats.co.uk Team – The Old Git
They call me, less than affectionately, The Old Git. Can’t think why when I help with the prizes. Maybe it’s because I went to school with Methuselah. Or because I cry every time I see the daily batch of competition prizes being sent out.
Anyway, Simon has asked me to write a few words about myself so that you know you more about the team behind freetreats.co.uk
Meet the FreeTreats.co.uk team – The Old Git
The first thing to know is that I am not just a glass half empty kind of guy. I am the person who always ends up with the chipped glass. What’s worse is that the great bar-tender in the sky thought fit to fill my glass with lager, when he should have known I am definitely a bitter man.
I like free prizes, but…
OK – so my likes and dislikes. Apart from lager, I dislike children, comedians, musicals, cats, brown sauce, Christmas – in fact, too many things to list here. And I hate lists too. But when it comes to likes, I thought I had landed the dream job at FreeTreats. Naturally, I imagined that I would be researching and testing all the treats. I saw myself in the Crisps Department trying the smoky bacon and seeing if they were better than the salt and vinegar or roast chicken flavours. I even ventured to hope that I could try really exotic flavours like prawn cocktail. Next I saw myself evaluating the different chocolates.
So, I dreamed that my expertise would be called upon to decide between Cadbury’s brands like Wispa or Twirls and ones from Nestle, like Milkybar and Aero. Happy days. But no, instead I am the one who sends out £5 cash prizes and I never get near the proper prizes, like crisps and chocolate.
I could tell you more about myself (or point you to one of my rants), so that you get to know me better. But I suspect by now that you’d rather not know me any better. That’s fine. I’ll just keep doing my job with the cash, much as it pains me, as well as sending out all those coffee vouchers. But if you hear of a Health and Chocolate Executive job or a Crisp Resources role going, please let me know.
