Those who pictured meditative hours spent in Santa’s grotto, gently combing the kinks out of Christmas lights as patient customers look on with grateful admiration, can think again. Tesco expects its professional untangler to be able to wrangle three metres of lights in under three minutes, while also identifying any broken bulbs or potential issues.
A Tesco spokeswoman told The Independent: “To help locals enjoy the festive season and relieve some of the stresses often associated with the yuletide season – specifically tangled tree lights – Tesco has launched a search for someone who can conquer one of the most frustrating jobs of Christmas.
“The position will require a friendly, helpful demeanour, oodles of patience and of course, the innate knack to be able to untangle even the most scrambled of wires.”
The job is for one of Tesco’s Wrexham stores.
