ABSTRACT
LESSONS learned this week, number 22: when casting a David and Goliath story, make sure your David is a sympathetic character, for fear the moral of the tale might be lost. The case in point is a feisty grandfather from Dublin, who has delighted observers one and all by getting the better of The Man. Eric Nolan, from Tyrrellstown, gave his grandson a �40 HMV gift voucher for Christmas. When the stricken retailer announced this week that it would not be honouring vouchers, a defiant Nolan took matters into his own hands. He and his grandson reportedly left the Henry Street shop with three games worth �46.80, after staff refused to accept the �40 token. He has pledged to post the voucher to HMV, together with the �6.80 balance owed.
