  1. Thats one of the places they had me climbnig too.....albeit pretty slowly! We set up a zip line over the river and as the last guy went over they loosened the rope and he dipped his arse in! then he had to get the bus home. Some people are just bastards!
  2. "You've been working here a year now Christopher. When you started I thought you were a good worker. Now I know you're fuckin shite!" And he kicks me up the arse in a joking manner...And I go up three steps!
  3. First ever job at a local country estate caravan park. The manager was a legend in the area by the name of Mr Harker. 7 foot tall. Massive beard. "Can you drive a tractor Christopher?" "Yes Mr Harker," "Well take the fuckin handbrake off then!"

  5. Hello, Its been a while since I was here. I had the pleasure recently of my first stump grinding job which I really enjoyed actually! Did 22 conifer stumps which were a breeze. Then onto the next site. No idea what these stumps used to be. One was solid as a rock. Eucalyptus maybe? Anyway one of the other ones was quite fibrous and started to smoke! Enough to cause concern because it was blowing onto a busy road. Has anyone else had this happen? Is it normal? Chris
  6. Hi Chris, any chance of a referral code for Tamar please also looking to set up a virtual number. Thanks John

  7. The Highways Agency found over 200 dead crows on the A34 in Cheshire recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be from vehicular impacts. However, during analysis it was noted that varying colours of paints appeared on the ...bird's beaks and claws. By analysing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only 2% were killed by cars. The Agency then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviourist quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger. They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "Truck"

  9. Doesn't it eat climbing harnesses too and make you fall out of trees?
