Jobs for the girls
24 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After reading her True Romances Flora comes across an article on 'how to supplement your income,' money is tight, Dolly is moaning about the cost of cigarettes, and Mildred's moaning about the subscription charge to the Honda club. Flora and Cissie head to the Job Centre, after causing a scene, and Cissie has selected addressing envelopes.......she hopes. Flora is busy assembling a work force when Roger brings in the boxes, which contain...5000 Indians and paint. Cissie is used as a human model, but isn't happy. Naturally something goes wrong.

It's not the funniest episode in the series in fairness, but it is still nice and light, Pat Coombs steals the show as always, her Indian outfit scene is very funny, she was such a darling!!

One line I loved, I have in my hand an Indian, what tribe is it? Cissie 'Half past three,' so funny.

All the way through the episode there's a man laughing, he has the most irritating laugh.
