Normal service will be resumed shortly

Only one more week of double shifts! By then I should have the first of the two FNG's trained up enough to be left alone.

Thankfully, them that do the hiring have gone away from hiring boys!

As I explained to them, all the local ones that would do well in the job are already off doing well in some other job! Apart from the odd good one entering the work force (which they don't tend to in the middle of the year) what's left are the dregs- the permanantly baffled, congenitally idle and the drug-addled- all from the shallow end of the gene pool.

Had a mate that wouldnt take on a lad as an apprentice, unless he was a farmers offspring.
He reckoned these lads/lasses already had the work ethic from working round the farm since they could walk. Townies took at least a year to get the idea that the world actually didnt owe them a healthy pay packet for showing their faces once in a while
