i worked at joseph, many years ago.
also harvey nichols but got fed up working on shop floor and asked to be on the delivery van, which was actually great. i was a 110lb teen with no practical skills at all (still have none) but we delivered really expensive furniture etc to ppl in beautiful houses who assumed we had a clue what we were doing, it was often like a buster keaton film. this was pre-internet/ computerised inventories etc so was utterly haphazard. a lot of the time we were free to find a quiet spot and read or just roam around the bowels of the building pretending to be busy. It's actually how I became such good friends with Graham Coxon, I was delivering a Vitra inflatable sofa to him (we always shipped inflatable sofas pre inflated) and we got talking about the copy of recherche volIV I had sticking out of my overall pocket. In the end I contributed some liner notes to The Great Escape linking it to a couple of proto Jungian concepts I'd been thinking about but I don't think they ever got used.
