    Saw a cracker today got the scaffolders in to set up for a loft conversion I'm starting next week.
    The scaffolder shouts to his labourer chuck us up a 21 the labourer picks up the end of the pole lying on the lawn and pushes it up.Straight into the electric cables BANG sparks everywhere all the electricity to the street knocked out.Luckily he had the end jammed in the lawn, said he only felt a light tingle.
    My labourer then puts his foot through the landing ceiling(luckily its coming down anyway)
    My customer must think we're a right bunch of clowns.

    I watched this topic with interest.

    I could see for ages there was a zero against this post and having read it, that the only reply was blindingly obvious: just wanted to see who would have the guts to post first!

    Actually, my money was on Breezer, but you got there first, Ban! Congrats! E-mail me for your prize of a mouldy bag of maltesers dating from 1977.
