    If it was easy none of us would have jobs! So shake it off and step up !

    As some old annoying Fokker used to say to me years ago.

    I have to remind myself of that in my other work. I bang my head against the wall on a daily basis. Same problem, different people.

    Every fcuking day.

    So occasionally, I do have to give my head a wobble and remind myself that it's what I do for a living. The difference between me and an amateur or someone who's fallen by the wayside is that I can resolve these problems and they can't.

    There's no such thing as free money.

    I am a plasterer, that’s why I wonder why I agree to jobs like these lol.

    If all else fails I’m off to join the foreign legion. Came out the army in 2009 and I miss it more each year

    As they say, buddy... You'll never be a civilian again. Ex squaddie it is.

    I miss it too.

    But if your customer complains, then just tell them that you were an NCO in the Parachute Regiment and show them the wings that you no doubt have tattooed on your arm, and they'll be so amazed that they'll pay up anyway.

    I once heard a furious man complaining at McDonalds.... 'I AM A SENIOR NCO IN THE PARACHUTE REGIMENT', shouted the man, waving his scoff box at the donk behind the counter. 'HOW DARE YOU!!!!!!'

    I don't know if he got his dispute resolved or not. I'd died laughing by then.

    I went to a family day years ago at st Athens and there were some white haired old boys there. They had me feeling there flexing pectorals ( which were pretty impressive for 80 years old) then they all got s**t faced, broke into the gym and had a boxing match between themselves I heard after :LOL:

    Lol sounds about right, the customer won’t complain she was well aware of the difficulties of this job she’s been in this afternoon and she’s chuffed with it, it’ll look totally different grouted up tomorrow.

    I’m surprised his clothes and wig and such would fit everyone in a platoon! Who knew?
