seen it all today, we had to prep some boarding ready to skim on a job me and monkey are on, the tackers had put up all the thincoat stops down the concrete ceilings, stu was scrimming when he noticed the stopeads where fixed with the 3mm lip over the inside edge of the boards so they all had to come off and be refixed,

Tackers dont understand sometimes we have had it with the wrap around beads being all over the place, a straight forward job become a pin in the rectum.

thing is they have been using them wrap around beads (they was calling them hockey beads) they was cutting them to width of the board so on a wall that was 7 boards wide there was 7 cuts in it and it looks shite

I dilled through my index finger with a thin drill bit fitting a loft ladder. Snapped the bit as well.

one of the best ive ever seen was an old lab of ours mixing up. was feeling lazy so lent the shaft of the mixer on his trackie bottoms. caught them and practically ripped his trouser leg off. the best thing is it made him do an elvis type pose. he shouted me so i came runnin in and instantly fell on the floor laughing.
