You made mistakes, but it was me that decided to repeat them.
Can we fix this?
I don't know, but I'd like to. If you would.
Come on, we can have another drink.
I don't think so.
I'm in room 106 if you change your mind.
Multi-function fan oven,
turkey's gonnae melt in the mouth this year.
How d'you pay for it?
Oh, it was dead easy. One of those payday loans.
Where's that daddy of yours? He's late.
Right, what do you fancy for your tea?
We'll see what we can do, eh?
Gonnae let Jimmy in?
What's that? Is that your list for Santa? What are you wanting?
Ooh, a Princess Castle. That's nice.
Ooh, nearly 50 quid, that's nice an' all.
Santa doesn't pay. He can make one.
Aye, but he might not be able to fit it onto his sleigh, you know,
with all the other presents he needs to deliver.
He got one last year for my friend Eva.
Oh, aye. So he did.
Guy at the door says he's here to fit an electric meter.
-Aye, that's right.
-But I paid some of the electric a few weeks ago.
You said you were going to sort the rest.
Well, other things took priority.
So now we're going on a meter?
I didn't have any choice.
What's going on here? >
That's Madonna nearly ready.
Never mind that.
Why are you getting a meter fitted?
Aye, well, it just makes sense.
How does it make sense? Have you not paid the bills?
-We got a bit behind.
-Why did you not say?
This way we can keep a track of it.
Folk can switch off lights when they're not needing them.
And we can take quicker showers and that.
Madonna. Your daddy's here.
Well, if you didn't get anything, I'll get the extra present.
What extra present?
The one the school asked them to take in
to put under the charity Christmas tree.
Oh, aye, I forgot.
Just a wee thing. Me and her'll get it after school.
That's good, thanks.
Listen, about Christmas. I want to see her as often as I can.
Aye, aye, of course, of course, aye.
Hiya, darlin'. There we go.
Right, come on, let's gie this man some room to work.
What time are you gonnae be home?
Depends what jobs come in.
I'll phone you and let you know.
Aye, don't leave it till the last minute.
You all right, Ma?
Aye, well, I would be, if it wasn't for this lot.
Got an early Christmas present
in the shape of a 70-odd quid phone bill.
70! Maybe you want to try talking less.
Maybe you need to pay your rent on time.
Ho! Will your full-time wages not deal wi' it?
I'll need to check with my financial advisor.
Hello, Scarlett Mullen speaking?
Oh, the loan! Oh, aye.
I was gonnae pay that by the deadline tomorrow in full, uh-huh.
Aye, I just need to check if my wages have cleared this week.
-Roll over? What does that mean?
-Don't get into that.
Say I wanted to extend what I've already borrowed for another month,
how much would that cost me?
£30 for every 100 I've already borrowed?
Just pay what you owe the now.
Sorry, my son's talking over the top of you.
Aye, all right.
I'll sleep on it and I'll get back to you tomorrow.
Ma, don't even think about it.
You don't want to get into a mess with loans and stuff.
Go and ask my Uncle Bob for a few extra hours or something.
Go on, get to your work. I'll wait here.
All right, thanks, darlin'.
-See you later.
What's happened here?
Oh, you've dropped something. You should've asked for a bag.
Ho! Get back inside, pal, empty your pockets.
OK. Now, I don't want to see you in here again.
-On your way.
-You not gonnae call the polis?
Next time. So be warned!
Why didn't you just give him the contents of the till while you were at it?
The weans around here have got your number, pal.
A bit of pilfering's to be expected.
I'm not wanting the police in here. Not today.
That Mrs Rooney from Head Office is going to "pop in"
to do one of her spot inspections.
-Great. I can have a chat to her about diddling me on my wages.
15 times £6.31 is £94.65, last time I checked.
That's how much more should've been in my bank account today.
on account of the fact that I done 15 hours extra last week.
Your full-time wages will not have kicked in for a couple of weeks.
-A couple of weeks?!
-Aye. That's the way it works.
It'll go into your account a couple of weeks before Christmas.
Brilliant, eh? Now, see when that Mrs Rooney gets here,
just leave all the talking to me, right?
-What, you scared of her?
-Aye! She makes Maw look like a pussy cat.
And I forgot to clean out that fridge at the weekend.
Och, I'll dae it once we've got this stock sorted.
You're a superstar.
Aye, well mind and tell that to Mrs Rooney.
Hello, Will Cooper?
When did this happen?
What, and you just let him?
Well, where was he going, did he say?
All right, thanks for letting me know.
'Hello, this is Edward Cooper. Leave a message.'
Dad. It's Will. The nursing home's been on the phone. Where are you?
Dad, it's me.
Dad, are you here?
'Hello, this is Edward Cooper. Leave a message.'
Dad, it's me. Look, I'm really worried now,
so just call me, OK? Let me know you're all right.
OK, well, if he turns up or gets in touch, can you let me know?
-You haven't seen my dad, have you?
-Your dad? Here? No.
-Hang on. Why do you think he'd be here?
I'm checking anywhere and everywhere.
He's discharged himself from the care home without telling me.
-I don't know where he is.
-Why would he do that?
Wouldn't he have just gone home? To the house?
It's the first place I checked.
Right, that's all the new stock packed away at the back.
What's next? The fridge?
Aye. Anything past its sell-by, just chuck it.
Bring the other dates to the front.
And all the new stock goes to the back.
Right you are.
Anything that needs chucked out, just put it in that
Right, so what's the difference between the state of this cheese yesterday and today?
Company policy says it goes.
Gonnae stop looking frightened every time somebody comes in that door?
Mrs Rooney's looking for a manager, not a mouse!
-When's she due?
-She didnae say.
We're waiting for the head honcho to come and inspect us.
Aye, well you'd better do something about your sticky floor then.
Och, something must've leaked. I'll go and get a mop.
The guy says they've put a couple of quid's credit on it for you.
I hope you didn't waste any boiling the kettle for him?
But he also reckons that for every tenner you top it up,
they'll take back three against what you still owe.
We've got a machine over there. I'll put some extra on it.
Having a meter just costs more.
It's done now! I need to get back to work.
Bob's all worried about the royal visit.
Will you be able to bring some shopping in tonight?
-It's just we've got nothing in.
-Aye. Aye of course.
-Cool, see you.
Look, I'll let him know you were here.
You're telling me I can't go and see my own husband?
He said nobody's allowed up. Absolutely nobody.
I guess I'm supposed to just disappear?
He said to give you this.
It's not your fault.
I'm sure I can find something to keep myself busy
for a couple of hours.
Right come on, gie us it.
How strange does this look, me pushing a baby about?
No, not at all.
This little one didnae sleep a wink last night.
Which means Leyla and Nic didnae either,
so I'm giving them both a bit of a break.
I mean, how can one little bundle like you wreak so much havoc, eh?
You must have the magic touch.
Oh, aye. I can send anybody to sleep.
Being a Mum, it's a bit of a life-changer for Nicole.
Aye, well, I can imagine.
As it turns out I'm a really great great-uncle.
I bet you are.
Right I better get in here and get to work.
-Catch you later.
Label's a bit ripped, but the tin's OK.
Come on. Hurry up.
-I'll knock 50p off it.
-But the food inside's all right.
Aye, but if the label's damaged folk'll not buy it.
Oh, and she-who-must-be-obeyed
will wonder why it's still on the shelf. HE LAUGHS
-Oh, this is my lucky day!
-Tin of hoops!
Label's a wee bit ripped, but will I mark it down?
Keep that aside for later on.
Nothing in the rules says I cannae buy it myself, eh?
Nice to see you keeping busy while things are quiet.
Or is that just because you knew I was coming?
No, no. Didn't even know what time it was.
Eh, Scarlett Mullen. Pleased to meet you.
Ah, the new employee. How are you settling in?
Great! Loving it.
It's just been like, eh, playing shops when we were wee!
You and Bob?
No. It was her favourite game when she was wee.
-Like it was mine.
Bob said you were the best of all the applicants.
Oh, aye! We were lined up all the way down the street.
TENSE ORCHESTRAL MUSIC
I must say, the branch has never looked tidier.
Is that your doing, Scarlett?
Oh, well, I'm not one to just stand about doing nothing.
In fact we apprehended a thief this morning. Didn't we, Robert?
We got everything back. He was just a kid.
I gave him a warning. He'll not it on again.
-Did you call the police?
-There's no need, he had me.
I used to work in the pub down the road.
-Nothing I cannae handle.
-Used to? What happened there?
-She's got a wee one.
The hours here are a wee bit more sociable than bar work.
I have children myself. It's never easy juggling, is it?
Always multi-tasking, us lassies.
About that thief, it sounds like you handled it well,
but in future if you could report it, just so the company's covered.
I'll get security to pick up the footage at the end of the day.
We should have his picture on file.
I'll have it ready.
-Nice meeting you, Scarlett.
-Nice to meet you an' all.
She's not the old boot you made her out to be.
Why did you tell her about me employing my sister and not seeing anybody else?
She handled the crisp heist but, didn't she? HE LAUGHS
You'd better watch your back, wee bro.
-I might be after your job next! Right. Och, dented.
Everybody's coming to me Christmas morning.
Weans, grandweans, the whole kaboosh,
and I don't want anything to spoil it.
Is that an invitation or a warning?
Depends what you and Scarlett have worked out for the day?
Nothing yet. But she knows I want to see her open her presents.
Then I expect everybody to be on their best behaviour.
It's not going to be easy for wee Madonna,
her mammy and daddy spending their first Christmas separated.
I am aware of that, Molly.
-Is Gabriel around?
-He's not in yet.
-Where do you want to go?
-Clydebank. Can you call him for me?
Must be telepathy.
-She's going to Clydebank.
I've lined up several to view, so I'll need you for a good few hours.
So I'll no' bother about any other jobs then?
Will this be cash or account?
My husband'll sort it.
Dad, what are you doing here?
This is where I live.
Why didn't you talk to me if you wanted to leave?
I did tell you I wanted to leave but you did nothing.
So I got a friend to pick me up. You remember Iain.
Hello, Will. It's been a long time.
Your dad tells me you're in CID.
Yeah, I became detective two years ago.
Thanks for bringing these.
Everything should be as we discussed.
Let's go through the detail tonight.
The thing I'm concerned about is this place.
I've already started making enquiries.
The developers are still jumpy.
They're reluctant to sign up if they don't know
when they'll take possession.
Keep your ear to the ground.
Well, I'll leave you to it. I'll see you about seven, Edward.
Nice to meet you again, Will.
I didn't know where you were, if you were all right.
Your phone's switched off.
-I didn't want any calls.
Not while I was at your mother's grave.
I went to lay flowers. It's her birthday today, if you remember.
Something wrong at the home?
No. I just didn't want to be there any longer.
-Well, you can't stay here.
Not on your own, anyway. You'd need a carer.
-I don't want anyone living in.
-It's not a matter of what you want.
That's the whole point of you being at the care home,
so you had 24-hour supervision.
It's one thing to feel like I was living in a jail.
But I wasn't aware I had to lose all my rights along with it.
I'm just thinking about how you'd cope on your own.
I've been coping on my own for years.
My decision doesn't need to affect you.
Of course it affects me.
Iain's coming over tonight to help me sort out my affairs,
so you won't have to worry about any of that.
I'm not entirely sure,
but I think there might be somebody through there that wants some company.
Did you find him?
He was at home. He'd got some solicitor friend pick him up.
He said it didn't have to affect me. Can you believe that?
I guess I wouldn't want to go back to that care home either
especially after a diagnosis like that.
But he won't hear about a carer.
Am I meant to just drop everything and move in with him?
But he's my dad.
So, there's not much to think about, is there?
-I haven't a clue what to do.
-You'll work it out.
The problem is he won't admit he's not well enough to live on his own.
He's trying to take control, you know, like he always does.
He's even got this solicitor friend coming round tonight to put things in order.
That's good, though, isn't it?
Yeah, I guess. It's just so... final.
Anyway, I need to go and pack a bag, for the next few days.
I'll speak to you later.
If Edward's got company tonight then,
why don't you give yourself a bit of space?
Come to mine for your dinner.
-Oh, Robbie, you don't have to do that.
-No, I want to.
OK. That'd be nice. See you later then.
So, I was thinking.
I could maybe come in once a week, give the place a once-over.
-Get it all
Aye, well, save you paying the company cleaners.
They're useless anyway.
Plus you wouldn't need to stress out if Rooney turns up with one of her cronies.
Aye, well, I'll think about it. Listen, thanks for today.
I really owe you.
Aw, it's funny you should say that.
Madonna was asking for a Princess Castle for her Christmas.
Oh, aye. £49.99! Are you kidding me?
You expect me to spend all that on her?
When we were weans we were lucky to get a bar of tablet
or an old jumper Ma had knitted us.
They hideous things!
I used to wonder what I'd done to make Santa mad at me.
I don't want Madonna disappointed in Santa.
Minus staff discount?
You've not worked here long enough to get a staff discount.
No, but you have.
It includes family, doesn't it? You've given me it before.
That was before, when you weren't working here.
It's a bit soon to be playing the brother card, isn't it?
What kind of tight-fisted company line is that?
-Only kidding you.
-You had me going, there, by the way.
Better stick ten quid on that an' all.
They say they've put credit on it but it'll not last in my house.
-You're on a meter now?
-Aye, what about it?
Nothing. But I can't give you a discount on this.
Oh right, well, I'm not sure if I can afford it, then.
Maybe I'll just take it through the back
and replace some of it with they discounted packets and tins.
No. I just wanted to pay for my messages.
Are we still in Glasgow? You've been driving forever.
Looks like we've arrived at the ends of the earth.
I hope this is better than that last dive we were in.
Do you want to come in with me?
Go on, let's see how the other half lives.
Could you ever see yourself somewhere like this?
-It's pretty nice.
-So what do you think the owner does?
Something better paid than a taxi driver, that's for sure.
But it's away out.
I mean, would you not prefer somewhere closer to the action?
No. A bit of distance suits me. Can please myself, then.
When I see people. When I don't.
Nice small talk. You should see the views in Spain.
The lights on the harbour.
I look much better in a tan than I do in big winter coats.
So, do you think you'll ever go back there?
Who knows? Maybe.
You must think I'm really hard to please.
I don't think anything.
I wasn't naive. I knew what I was getting into.
I wonder sometimes what could be, if things were different...
But they're not.
No, but they could be a lot more interesting.
Finally getting used to the idea of settling in Glasgow.
I'll tell you all about it when I see you.
You'd better get me back.
CAR HORN HONKS
So, what's the verdict?
Are you going to take it?
-I have to run it past Billy first.
-Or you could just surprise him.
-Yeah. He'd love that(!)
You know, if this place doesn't suit him,
there's loads of other properties I might have to look at.
Could take weeks to find something I like.
Get all your business done?
Aye. You took your time.
I'm back now.
-Scarlett? Can I have a word?
Eh, I got a call about the council tax bill.
-It's still in my name.
So? I'm responsible for paying that, and everything else.
But you've not been paying, have you? It's well overdue.
-If you need me to help...
-No, I don't.
I can give you a bit extra for Madonna's keep.
No, we're fine.
Look, I'll sort it out.
And I'll change it over to my name while I'm at it.
Here's what I owe you, Ma. Well, nearly all of it.
I'll get the rest to you when I can.
Ya wee dancer! Oh, Bubba, thanks!
Of course, Billy.
Another white wine when you're ready. And one for yourself.
Hey, let's see.
You know, I think it needs a woman's touch, but I liked it.
Decided it's not for me.
I thought you were keen.
You don't want to go thinking too much, Gabriel.
Might land you in trouble.
What about your wine?
Changed my mind. It's a woman's prerogative.
-Want a beer?
-Go for it.
Was he OK about you coming over tonight?
Couldn't get rid of me fast enough.
You obviously didn't say you were coming to see me.
He's determined to prove he can cope.
Do you want to open the wine?
Would it be very English of me just to have a cup of tea first?
Would it be very Scottish if I just stuck to the wine?
-I've had your tea.
-There is nothing wrong with my tea.
The jury's still out on that one, Detective.
If Madame would like to take a wee seat at the table.
Bob? Your dinner's ready.
-What's all this? Candles!
-Only the best in this restaurant.
Kelly and Cal will not be getting this treatment.
And as requested, spaghetti hoops.
And for dessert may I suggest...
Am I in the right house?
Of course you are. Me and Madonna are celebrating.
-Your mammy. Making something of herself.
Uncle Bob's promised to give me overtime,
and the lovely lady from Head Office is very impressed by my work.
-Are we going to be rich?
-Not exactly, darlin'.
But I've worked things out so it's not going to be
-so much of a struggle any more.
-That's great, Ma.
I know. Things are looking up.
Do you know what this needs?
Only a few days past its sell-by. Wee bit of grated cheese.
Something to wash that down?
Look at that, 50p off, because of a stupid wee dent. It's mental, innit?
I could get used to eating like this every night.
Maybe not every night. But with a wee bit of extra overtime,
and if I'm selective with what I buy, like just the damaged stuff,
I can reduce my shopping bill and I can pay off some of my debt.
-Aye, there's nothing wrong with most of the stuff that gets chucked out.
-Aye. The dates, they're just a guideline.
Nothing like a wee bit of extra mature, eh?
Do you know what?
I think I might enjoy this better in front of the telly.
Do you know what? Think I'll join you.
Told you you'd sort things, Ma. You always do.
Give me your plate?
Aw, thank you, that was great.
I've been living off take-out since I've been on my own.
That's not like you, you're a great cook.
Yeah, well, it looks like I'll have to start cooking again, won't I?
It would've been Mum's birthday today. That's where he was.
He was putting flowers on her grave. I'd forgotten.
Oh, Will. I had no idea.
I was 17 when she got ill,
and he kept farming me out to relatives.
When I was home I just felt like I was in the way.
You know? In HIS way.
Maybe he was trying to protect you.
Maybe. But I just... I felt left out.
Like I was missing out on precious time with her.
And now I feel like the same thing is happening again,
and I don't know what to do, how to be of any use.
If I'm honest, I wish he'd just change his mind about the care home.
What does that say about me?
It says you're scared.
I'm scared we'll run out of time
before I get a chance to put things right between us.
No-one expects you to have answers.
I do. I expect me to.
And that's where you've gone wrong before.
You need to accept help where it's offered.
I just want to make sure everything's all right.
As all right as it can be.
Dad. I'm home.
-I'm all right.
-How long have you been on the floor?
-Just get me up.
-Are you hurt?
-I'll call the doctor?
I'm all right.
Just help me get cleaned up and into bed.
-I don't want a fuss.
Is that what she's putting under the tree for charity?
What do you think? Will it do?
Some wee wean's gonnae love that, by the way.
-So, how much do I owe you?
-Are you sure?
Aye, it's for Madonna. It's part of my job.
Thanks. And listen.
Don't worry about anyone chasing you up about the council tax
or the phone bill, cos I'm getting on top of it all.
-Good for you.
Your daddy's here. He's here to take you away to school.
PHONE RINGS Oh, that's mine.
On you go. I'll just wait for her.
Ma, bet you that's the loan company.
They're not going to leave you alone.
Do you want me to answer it?
Hello. This is Scarlett Mullen.
Aye, I have thought about it.
No, I won't need to extend the loan, thanks.
I'm going to pay it back by the end of the day.
I usually am by this time. Help yourself to some breakfast.
Dad, I want to make some inquiries about a carer.
I've told you how I feel about that.
Even after last night?
Shouldn't you be leaving for work? A lot of traffic at this time.
Dad. We need to talk about this.
We talked when I was rotting in that care home
but you were too busy to get me moved.
Iain and I have everything under control.
So find some other way to assuage your guilt
without meddling in my affairs.
No need to come back tonight.
I'll call you if I need you.
It's so lovely, son, you and Scarlett working together side by side.
To tell you the truth, she's a much better worker than Zinnie ever was.
But I didn't say that, right?
Mum's the word!
What do you think?
If that's for me, you're gonnae need more wool.
Oh, ha-ha(!) It's for Christina.
You and Scarlett used to love they wee jumpers I knitted for you.
Aye. Nice one, Ma.
Mrs Rooney. I wasn't expecting you back so soon.
Is that everything, Ma?
Oh, aye, I'll... I'll leave you two to talk important business.
Is everything all right? Have I done something wrong?
-Have a good day, Ma.
-You too, Bubba.
Hello, Mrs Rooney. Nice to see you again.
Scarlett, we're needing to have a wee word with you.
-Well, you know that stuff
you cleared out of the fridges yesterday,
-that I asked you to dispose of?
-Well, you didn't.
You decided to help yourself instead.
Not exactly. It was getting chucked out anyway.
You were seen on the CCTV footage.
I told you to throw it away, that's company policy.
But... But most of that stuff was perfectly fine.
Aye, but you cannae do that, you cannae just help yourself.
It's not as if I was stealing anything!
-Technically, it is, aye.
-Aw, come on, that's just ridiculous.
I mean, that's a shocking waste!
I'll not do it again if it's gonnae get Bob into trouble, but.
I'm afraid it's a wee bit too late for that.
I'm gonnae have to gie you your notice.
You're having me on. He's having me on.
He's a practical joker!
This is no joke. That's why I'm here.
You want rid of me over a bit of cheese and a couple of yoghurts?
-You know what this job means to me!
-I'm sorry. Just go home, Scarlett.
No, I'm not going anywhere. And you two can listen to me.
I've done nothing wrong. I'm not going anywhere.
Leave it, Scarlett.
You might be scared of her but I'm no'.
Yesterday, you were praising me for catching a thief.
That's how we saw you. When we were watching the tape.
You're the manager of this shop.
Don't just stand there, do something.
Don't make this any harder than it already is.
Oh, aye. United we stand, divided we fall?
You know what you can do with your company policy, and your job!
I'm sorry. You're probably on your way to work, aren't you?
I've got a few more minutes.
Oh, I needed to talk to someone about this.
So, I get in, last night, and I find him lying on the floor.
It takes me an hour to get him upstairs, and cleaned up.
This morning he's saying it's none of my business.
He'd still be lying there now, if it wasn't for me.
I can't do this, not at his place.
He doesn't even want me to go back there tonight.
I had to make an excuse about renewing his insulin prescription.
Oh, no. Living with your dad again was never going to be easy.
No, but it's not about me now.
I just need to do whatever's best for him.
Well, what are you going to do? You both can't stay at yours.
There's only one bedroom.
Until I find somewhere more suitable, I can't think of another solution.
What? You want my father to move in with you, again?
Isn't the poor man sick enough? Could you imagine?
I'm no Mother Theresa, but there is another way.
I'd already arranged to spend some time with my family over Christmas,
so I could just move that forward.
Stay with them now, you and Edward could move in here.
Just for a few weeks, until you get yourself sorted.
-Robbie, I can't ask you to do that.
-You're not. I'm offering.
-Yeah, but it's too much.
-It doesn't have to be forever.
It's not ideal, but you'd still be able to work.
This is a lot more manageable than his house.
It would just give you a bit of breathing space.
What did you have to involve him for?
Because I can't do this on my own.
-I've told you that I don't want your help.
-Dad, be realistic.
If I hadn't come back last night,
you'd still be at the bottom of the stairs. Or worse.
I can't just leave you here and forget about you.
I'm not moving into his to make you feel better.
Robbie's place is close to my job, the shops, the health centre.
-It makes sense.
-Not to me.
Look, it'll only be for a few weeks. I'll take some time off work
and I'll find you somewhere that you're happier with.
I want to spend time with you, but you're gonnae have to help me out here. Please.
-We haven't tried here.
-We didn't even last one night.
I can't go out or do my job
wondering what I'm going to find when I get back.
-I'm not promising I'll stay there.
-And you don't have to.
I'm just trying to find a way we can do this together.
Where are you going?
I've just been gie'd the sack by my own brother.
-For taking food that was going in the bin.
I'm not the criminal. What's happened to me is.
I'm goin' to see the polis about this.
Ma, you can't do that!
I've just lost my job. It's unfair dismissal.
I'm trying to feed my family on virtually nae money.
And they're giving me grief about food that they were going to chuck out anyway?
-It's no' right!
-I'll go and talk to my Uncle Bob.
That useless lump. He had nae backbone in front of that woman.
I've got nothing more to say to him.
I need that job back. And I'm gonnae get it.
Mrs Mullen. What can I do for you?
You can tell me what happened earlier was a big mistake.
As much as I'd like to, I can't.
If we allowed you to get away with pilfering,
it would be like sending out a green light to all the staff.
What I actually didn't pay for was going in the bin anyway.
For what it's worth, I'd be happy to mark down and sell the food.
But that's against the Health and Safety ruling, I'm afraid.
What, you think I'm gonnae sue the Mini Market
-if I gie myself food poisoning?
-That's a chance we can't take.
Listen, I really need this job. I mean, I'm scraping by as it is.
I mean, I'm a good worker. You said so yourself.
If you want proof, just look at your spy cameras.
Your work is not in doubt, Mrs Mullen.
What if I say I'm sorry? I'm really, really sorry
The CCTV footage has already been viewed by upper management.
What do yous lot know about what's going on in the real world?
Sitting here in your plush wee offices.
I bet your weans don't miss out on much, eh?
Nice clothes, nice holidays?
I started on the shop floor myself.
-I haven't forgotten what it was like.
-Have you not?
You know what it's like, to have every penny you've earned
spoken for even before it's in your hand?
You know what it's like to put off buying school shoes
when your wean's grown out of the old ones?
Whether you buy food or pay for the electric?
I'm getting by on the minimum wage, here. Six quid an hour.
-And I work damn hard for that.
-I know you do.
Why begrudge me some food that you cannae sell anyway?
That's not the issue.
No, the issue is if you take my job away from me,
I cannae feed my family.
It's not as if I've swindled millions out of this.
I made a mistake.
I know that, and I'm sorry, I'll not do it again.
I just want a chance to provide for my family like any mother would.
-Like you do.
-I appreciate that. And I'm genuinely sorry.
-But I don't make the rules.
-Let me speak to somebody who does.
Get them to justify sacking me for feeding my wean food
that was gonnae be dumped anyway!
Mrs Mullen, if you don't mind...
-It was Scarlett yesterday.
-I've got another branch to visit.
I'm not going anywhere, not until you give me my job back.
-Is it true? Bob had to sack you?
-Don't you start!
I'm not. I just want to know what happened?
You mean you want to know how your ex-wife messed up yet again?
-Prove to yourself and everybody else that you're better off without me, just like you thought?
Can we just talk? I only want to make sure you're all right.
Why do you always have to go and make things much worse?
Maybe it's a gift.
What did she have to say?
She, eh... She got security to remove me from the premises.
Are you going to jail?
-Ma, what is gonnae happen then?
If there's any justice, I should be getting compensation.
Back in a minute, pal, right?
I really stood up to her Bubba, I did.
I practically begged her to gie me my job back.
That's when she called security.
I've let yous all down. Again.
We'll work it out.
I'm supposed to do that. I'm your Ma.
I'm supposed to have all the answers.
I'm supposed to protect yous. Keep you safe and fed.
I thought I had it all worked out this morning.
-Make yourself comfortable, Edward.
-I'll have to, won't I?
I'll never make it down those stairs again.
-I'll take your case?
I'll leave yous to it then.
Everything is where it usually is, so...
We'll be fine. Thanks, Robbie.
Oh! Good luck.
-Come and see me if you need a break or whatever.
Right, I'll put the kettle on.
That's it, I've lost my job. Simple as that.
That is insane.
Aye, I know. That Mini Market's living in the dark ages.
Right, let's just get the kids fed and in bed,
and we'll get a proper chance to chat about it, right?
Bet that so-called brother of mine
is gonnae get employee of the month over this.
Don't be like that, Ma. He couldn't risk losing his job as well.
I didn't see you turning up your nose at that food last night.
Only yesterday he was telling me not to think of him as my brother at work.
Aye, well, I'll no'. Not any more.
I thought you were gonnae put money in the meter?
-I didn't have any.
Quick! Madonna's in the bath. Get the candles.
All right, mate? Can you put a tenner on that, please?
I'm gonnae try and come round again after I've finished here.
I wouldnae dae that.
Aye, I know I says I was gonnae pay it off in full by the end of the day,
but I've had a wee rethink.
I'd like it to roll over is that still possible?
Aye, I understand it's gonnae be an extra £90 on what I already owe.
Aye, 30 days? I'll be sorted by then.
Aye, right, thanks.
I'll make you some cocoa
when your big brother gets back with the card for the meter.
You've got your heart set on that, haven't you?
-You're going to get a new job.
-Well, I'll try.
-How do you know that?
Because I put it on my list for Santa.
Bless you, darlin'.
Zinnie, this is my brother, Alex.
Yeah, he owns this place, you should probably be nice to him.
Well, we need to look at new ways of dealing with the cash.
New businesses to put it through.
I've got my eye on something.
Sit down, sit down.
Come on, I've a wee proposition for you.
It's all very simple, you stay away from Jamie,
and stay away from my bar.
