Luckily it was discovered when we did the functional test- it just meant a few red faces and more work to fetch it out and replace it with the serviceable one!

In a former life I was a plumber  O0     Nothing worse than lying on your back, head under a sink to remove a blocked trap then thinking " where do I empty the contents of this trap " ?   I know; and reach up and empty the contents into the sink,  YUK.  {:-{

Sometimes mistakes are made in an emotive voice.....like in an attempt to eliminate an injury >>:-( of a worker.....

Like calling [in a loud voice] to a Union Delegate...not to be such a f***in lazy ba***ard......well!.....the next day all of the wages workers at our Garden Island Naval Dockyard went on strike  due to a Foreman's verbal abuse of the said Union Delegate

The Government of the day was of Labour persuasion and industrial action was not appreciated within the bib white building in Canberra

The silly Foreman had to apologise to the Union Delegate in front of the Combined Unions Shop Committee and a Rear Admiral  .....for insinuating that the Union Delegate was Fatherless  {-)
