Charles Barker PR director Steve Gebbett allowed his long suffering
secretary a little sweet revenge last week after ten years of filing his
reports, fielding his calls and booking his lunches.
To celebrate a decade of working together Gebbett presented Pauline
Morgan with a set of shiny Jim Bowen-style darts and a dart board
emblazoned with his photograph.
A crowd gathered as Morgan got rid of years of frustration by pelting
the board in an effort to score a ten, which she did on the fourth
attempt to the delight of onlookers.
‘I thought it would be a good opportunity for her to get her own back at
me,’ explains Gebbett who, despite Morgan’s enthusiasm to try out her
present, insists they have a ‘good relationship’.
‘I’m sure lots of people want to throw darts at me’, Gebbett adds with
just a hint of self pity. Charles Barker’s other 90 employees were
unavailable for comment.
