Sounds like Spain.

Tradesmen visiting your house never have rhe right tools. The Electrician that turned up to renew our overhead supply frompoleto house used olive oil fromhis lunch and arock to freem the tensioner. Didnt even have a hammer in his tool kit.

There was a bit on Uk tv this morning about SWR whete people had spent 15 hours on a broken down train.!

It would have been funny if the economic cost of such a careless approach to work was not potentially so enormous. >:(

It's always the one tool you left on the bench or lent to Bob 3 weeks ago "i'll give it you strait back honest" :(

I'm sure after brexit all trains will be sorted  ;D
Paddington the bear 1958 ,so 70 years old ,not 24  :D ;D

 ;D ;D ;D ;D  Funny you should say that Dave, as the Team leader of the track gang had to ring a mate elsewhere to borrow the missing socket.  It was just like someone working on a car and ringing a friend to provide the right tool :D :D ;)

I think it was one of those foreign types, coming over here and using our roads.  ;)

Sadly 3 people have died as a result of this. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-oxfordshire-45878215

RIP.


..............and the report states "The driver and passenger [of the errant car and caravan], both in their 80s, and the driver of the Ford Mondeo who was in his 30s, died in the accident."

So it looks like some silly old sod became confused??  I will now stop complaining about the 3 year licence review I get as a diabetic, with a medical this year to test my "fitness to drive"!!  But there again everyone over 70 gets a licence review now every three years anyway, so it just proves that does not guarantee everyone's fitness to drive.

Sad about the three deaths :'( :'(
One of them, anyway.

Was watching this last night as they changed a broken rail. A gang arrived to do the urgently required work and did not have the correct sized spanner to undo the nuts holding the railkeeper in place!!!!!
Is it any wonder our rail network is in chaos. :-X

Yes, this documentary series which I have religiously watched from the start, is not good PR for GWR, or the railways generally, with constant crisis portrayed (well that does make a good story for the journalists making the programme!!) and hundreds of passengers being mucked around!

Once all the current railway upgrade investment has been made hopefully it will be different, but running a railway which involves complex machines, electrics, and electronics, apart from suicidal people, is never going to be easy.

To not have the right bit for your socket set for a job they knew they were doing can have no excuse!! ::) ::) ;)
