What the job description said:
“Required – a hard working, presentable, highly skilled tradesperson.”
They don’t mention it in the job description, obviously, but there are some key, unspoken pre-requisites for this job. These are a) having a thick regional accent b) being a drug dealer.
Our own dear ‘logistics manager,’ as the company I worked for had the chutzpah to call him, we nicknamed The Geordie Ninja. He had this uncanny knack of disappearing whenever the shit hit the fan (poo overflowing into the bedrooms from a blocked toilet, emergency transfer requested, electrical fire), but would then materialise, as if by magic, whenever there were free leftovers on offer or it was someone else’s round.
