I used to be a civil servant.

They gave me this written warning because I was far too cheerful as I signed on the long lines of people claiming unemployment benefit. Nobody complained, just the management didn’t like my bonhomie and generally pleasant demeanour.

Soon afterwards, I left this punitive employ, had an emergency appendix operation, then went to art school, and the rest, as they say, is history.

By publishing this letter I’m probably breaking the Official Secrets Act.
