INSPIRING STORY of ALBERT HOBDELL SAUSAGE

INSPIRING STORY of ALBERT HOBDELL SAUSAGE

            One evening I read an old book that I have put it under my piles. I have never opened the book for long time. I was amazed by the story of Albert ‘Obdel sausage. I would share the story with you.
            Albert Hobdell story was a caretaker at Greyfriars Street School in Manchester. He was a creative man. He could make anything from fishing rod to a dining table but he couldn’t write and read. He couldn’t say his name properly. He said “Albert ‘Obdel.
            One day,  the headmaster , Mr.Brown retired and Mr. Johnson came in his place. Mr. Brown was different from Mr. Johnson. Mr. Johnson was efficient and up to date. If anyone was inefficient he had to go. Mr. Johnson made “time book” every staff had to sign in the morning and in the evening. One day Mr. Hobdell had to sign on the time book. How did he sign he couldn’t even write his name? Finally he was fired.
            Mr. Hobdell lived in a little house. He used to have a plate of sausages to cheer him up. Unfortunately, Mrs. Wigs who sold sausages had died. The shop was empty now. Mr. Hobdell felt lonely and sad. “No sausages for tonight” he said. He had an idea. He would take Mrs. Wigs’ shop with his little money and sell sausages. Soon, he bought the shop and started selling sausages. He sold fried sausages. He sold a sausage on a small stick. Before a month, he was able to employ two assistants.
            He had another idea. He hired a boy with a bike to go around and sell sausages. Later, he needed two more assistants. Hobdell sausage was becoming famous and starting a big business. He spent 50.000 pounds on advertising. There were some ads like these” “EAT MORE SAUSAGES”, “SAUSAGES ARE BEST”, “BUY BRITISH –HOBDELL’S SAUSAGES ARE BRITISH TO THE BACKBONE”, “THE BIRTH OF SAUSAGES” . Hobdell’s sausages became more popular than Shakespeare Play. 
            Funnily, up to five years ago Mr. Hobdell had never had a banking account. Then, he wanted to open an account. He started with 200.000 pounds. When the clerk needed Mr. Hobdell’s signature, he was surprised because Mr. Hobdell couldn’t write. However a man with such a good balance in a bank had to be treated well, then the clerk said” You do surprise me, Mr. Hobdelll and yet you have made such a success of life.” Mr. Hobdelll, You had been a self –made man.
