Patterns tend not to diversify themselves through the ages and as much as autumn turns into winter, and winter into spring there are certain patterns amongst families that do not change from generation to generation for example the same job role can be found in certain families with their being generations of miners for example spanning back not just decades but centuries.
A pine furniture factory based in Dorset was owned by Peter Scrungeworthy he had been given this as part of his inheritance from his parents and they in turn had received the factory from Peter's grandparents. In a similar vain a large percentage of the staff that worked there also had parents and grandparents who had worked there prior to themselves. The style and types of furniture available had not changed greatly over the years but the different finishing touches had changed beyond recognition.
Peter was different from the previous owners of the factory,he was a miser.He was a born miser, he would keep his store room for the daily requirements in a room next to his office. He would spend a lot of his time standing in the shadows of the factory listening to his workers,he was so used to the sounds that he could tell if they were going fast or slow,he could tell if production was up or down,he could tell if he was making money.
The foreman was a man called Steve Edwards who Peter regularly spoke to about speeding up production. Steve was not a fan of these 'talks' and often drove the men far harder then need be to get Peter off his case. The carpenters and other workers was given bonuses for meeting high targets which though hard to get were obtainable through very hard work. During the day Peter would take the all the takings through to his private office and count the money that had been made.
Peter normally painfully aware of the whereabouts of his money made it home one afternoon, fell asleep as normal before waking with a jolt to discover that the money had been left at the factory on the farmhouse table in his office. He ran back to the factory, ran to his office to find the door jarred shut and what was undeniably the sounds of Steve, the foreman and the secretary Polly in the throws of passion. Peter charged at the door desperate to regain his money. The door opened and Peter threw himself into the room, tripped and flew out the open window landing in the pond below, luckily for Peter, or so he thought he had managed to grab the money that was so important to him.
