I am working for an ex captain of industry at the moment installing his new bathroom not cheap at 8000-00 plus.

But he was honest when I called to survey the work at quotation stage he greeted me with the following.

Good evening Mr H now before we go to look at the job there is something I ought to tell you `I don't do`. I do not own a paint brush, screw driver, hammer or anything. If I even look at something like that I would hurt myself or someone else. Putting it simply when you leave and the job is complete can you please make sure `the loo roll` is correctly in place.

This man is a whiz with figures but has never handled a tool of any kind as far as I know apart from a pen.

Yours Colin H.

Hi colin....in my previous life in the motor trade a very good friend of mine was a technical author for a very large car company . He put together dealer network manuals and workshop manuals, in his head he new every car they made inside out, but put a spanner in his hand and the end result was a quivering wreck....similar sort of story!       Funny old world aint it?
