Hello Toby! I'll cut right to the chase: I'm aware that there are plenty of odd goings-on at Greyshire, but is there anything that's dark or unpleasant?

Toby: "Gaaaaasp DARK OR UNPLEASANT???!??! NOOO 'OW COULD THERE BE??? GREYSHIRE IS THE BEST MOST SPLENDID AND LOVELY AND WONDROUS PLACE IN THE WORLD and it is NEVER EVER dark or unpleasant 'ere EXCEPT in the pantry at night when the candle won't light and I 'ave forgotten to throw out the expired cheese which is a RARE OCCASION though I will admit it 'as both darkness and unpleasantness BUT this is the BEST PLACE and I LOVE EVERYONE and NO ONE IS EVER DARK AND DEFINITELY NOT UNPLEASAN- ... um... practically everyone is... most all the people... with 'ardly any exceptions...

OH LOOK AT THE TIME ON THE CLOCK WHICH IS RIGHT OVER THERE I SHOULD PROBABLY GO WATER THE CACTUS NOW!"

Hi Toby! It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. If you don't mind me asking, how long have you been working at Greyshire Manor?

Toby: "I DIDN'T KNOW! But I met Mr. Greyshire when I was out POLISHING SHOES because that was my job before I 'ad this job, and I polished ‘is shoes and ‘e ‘ad the SHINIEST SHOES I ‘AD EVER SEEN and I told ‘im so! AND ‘E SAID THAT IT WAS THE BEST SHOE SHINE ‘E ‘AD EVER GOTTEN AND I WAS VERY PROUD AND SAID THANK YOU AND TOLD ‘IM THAT I WAS ESPECIALLY PLEASED BECAUSE I WAS NOT EVEN A PROFESSIONAL FULL TIME SHOE POLISHER!

And ‘e said what else do you do, and I told ‘im I ‘av LOTS of jobs! SOMETIMES when it is cold I SHOVEL SNOW which is a very GOOD and UNDERRATED job because most of the time after your fingers lose feeling they DO NOT fall off! And sometimes I SELL NEWSPAPERS except I don’t anymore because I got sacked on account of I ‘eld the sign upside-down, and SOMETIMES I am an ORGAN GRINDER even though Bill who is my fifth brother tells me that nobody likes organ grinders, but I do not mind BECAUSE SOMETIMES the things that people throw are things that you can EAT and I take them home and Mum makes a VERY NICE STEW! And sometimes I COLLECT THE RUBBISH but only when it is very nice rubbish and I don’t actually get paid for that! BUT SHOE SHINING IS MY CHOSEN PROFESSION AT THE MOMENT BECAUSE I HAVE COME INTO POSSESSION OF A VERY NICE RAG!

AND THEN I GUESS MR. GREYSHIRE REMEMBERED ‘E NEEDED A PORTER BECAUSE ‘E TOLD ME ‘E NEEDED ONE AND SAID WOULD I LIKE TO BE A PORTER AND I SAID YES I WOULD LIKE THAT VERY MUCH!

AND NOW I AM A PORTER AND IT IS THE BEST OF ALL THE JOBS!!!!"

*grins* What are your opinions of the other staff? Have you talked with many of the guests here at Greyshire? How long have you been working at Greyshire.

Also, you are very lovely young man Mr. Toby. It's really a sincere pleasure to speak with you. :D

Toby: "I-- I--- THANK YOU!!!!! THAT IS VERY KIND OF YOU TO SAY MA'AM, I LIKE TALKING TO YOU TOO MA'AM!!!! YOU ARE A MOST EXCELLENT PERSON TO TALK TO!! AND ALSO VERY NICE AND SMART AND PRETTY AND TALENTED AND AMAZING!!!

The staff?? I LOVE THEM! THEY ARE THE BEST AND GREATEST AND MOST WONDERFUL PEOPLE I 'AVE EVER MET! NO I 'ave not talked much to the guests except when I OPENED THE DOOR FOR THEM! In which case I said WELCOME TO GREYSHIRE so that they would feel WELCOMED!!

Oh and I 'ave worked 'ere THREE MONTHS and they 'ave been the BEST THREE MONTHS OF MY LIFE!"

You are too kind Toby, but thank you. :)

Do the rest of the staff get along well generally? Have any of the guests tried to ask you questions of an odd or funny nature?

Do you plan on making this your permanent profession then?

Toby: "Thank YOU!! YES THEY GET ALONG GREAT!! Save for when Sophie is NOT DOING what Mr. Feathers says we should be doing which is VERY OFTEN but I think 'e 'as COME TO ACCEPT THIS by now because 'e is never upset about ANYTHING not even the time when I CAUGHT 'IS COATTAILS ON FIRE but that was an ACCIDENT!!
NO I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any FUNNY QUESTIONS seeing as the the GUESTS DO NOT TALK TO ME MUCH but I would be HAPPY to answer their questions if they did have them because it is a porter's job to be 'ELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE!
OH I had not THOUGHT ABOUT A PERMANENT PROFESSION seeing as I've never 'ad the same job for more than a MONTH so a PERMANENT PROFESSION IS NOT SOMETHING I 'AVE CONSIDERED BUT IF THEY WOULD KEEP ME ON AT GREYSHIRE FOREVER I WOULD BE VERY HAPPY!!!"
