Congratulations on the sponsorship and good luck with the job, I know you've been chasing this for some time.

Hmmm, healthy? Well if you left out the cheese on the spud, then maybe. Go down Morrisons and kick up a fuss about the broken plastic though! That is very bad.

Good on ya, I did a bit of door work when I was 19 (up to 22), it seems really easy but you don't realise how stupid people are until they have a few drinks down them. I used to love the job, met my wife while working on the doors (and had 11 glorious....long....very long......years together lol). Had a few run in's with people, one glass thrown at me, 2 knifes pulled and a screwdriver! Never been hurt, always worked with a good bunch of lads who worked on the basis 'one in , all in' and it always seemed to do the job.

The company I used to work for went bust for fiddling the books so lost the job and by then you had to be SIA resisted so never got back into it. Im 30 now and I reckon I would do it again, but the wife always ums an ahs about it, she can remember what the bad times were like and unfortunately people are too quick to act before thinking now and she dosnt fancy coming to identify my body! Can I recommend asking to see if your employer will cover or meet some of the costs of a good stab vest, it may seem extreme but its an extra level of security that I personally feel is required for door work. I have friends still in the business and they never work without one on, one was stabbed a year ago, blade managed to work itself into the cavity filler and nicked him in the chest. Walked away with a half inch scar, he dreads to think would have happened if he hadn't had the vest on!

But no more scare stories, be relaxed around people and you get the same back and believe me, nob-heads stand out a mile so they should be easy to control and above all...enjoy it.

Today, I was sitting minding my own business using the PC in the Study, Mrs Trucker™ and the girls have gone shopping and I heard one of the taps in the main bathroom start running?. Thought maybe it was a dodgy washer or a change in water pressure but on investigation the tap has turned fully on apparently all by itself. Turned it back off, and no drips or leaks.

Which was weird.
