    Stealing food to solve the food crisis.

    This is very common practice. Meat and coffee are the most stolen items. You’d be amazed how many steaks A determined drug addict can hide on them. They are then sold either in pubs or door to door on a nearby estate for quick cash. I remember years back a shop we were working on the manager...

    Local Crime Waves

    Sadly this is common all over the uk. I had a drugged up looking driver threatening to stab me on the m25 last week. I accidentally pulled out on him as he was going so fast he came out of nowhere. There was no police available to attend but the nice lady on 999 could guide us to the nearest...

    Having pickup windows blacked to stop prying eyes.

    Surely it’s better sense to just get your border terrier a Rottweiler? On a serious note If your talking about having your rear canopy windows tinted I would also install mesh internally.

    Dress to impress

    The dirty boots things a bit disrespectful, but the clothes aren’t a problem at all. We’ve a local farmer I’ve often had the misfortune of following around the co op with rather short shorts on that obviously ripped wide open some time ago.

    New kitchen

    I wasn’t brave enough to go for the dark blue doors and went for the olive green instead last year. Seeing yours makes me doubt my decision now

    what grinds your gears

    I was following a multi deck sheep carrier on a low loader this morning. No signs of the driver doing anything wrong but if the guy pushing his elderly wife in a wheelchair hadn’t pushed both of them into the ditch they both would have ended up flat as a pancake. couldn’t have been more than a...

    We’ve just done the exact same at a mates place yesterday morning for 2 long eared bats that fortunately weren’t in the roof when we took it off The scaffolding was perfect as you would expect full containment to be, with a corrugated tin roof and thick plastic sheeting on the side.

    Have you enough room to drag a pre-fab unit in? I have used Heaver Brothers up by the airport a few times in the past. The thing I really liked was it’s always an asset you could sell on

    Buying road salt / grit

    Depending on your tenants requirements I use to use mitey to grit our car parks. It was a lot cheaper than I could have done it for, and you get a text message the afternoon frost is forecast that you could reply you were happy to leave it that evening. Or don’t reply and it was gritted and an...

    Infested ... and helpless. Ideas?

    I’ve a feeling YouTube recommended this to me today aswell. If it’s the the same one the scientist who spent all day with a military grade automatic rifle firing shots next to birds to cause a splash to scare them off made me chuckle

    Dealing with companies that havent moved on with the times.

    What you seem to have found is a “ ‘Dreckly “ engineering firm. Down here when you ask how long it may take And some old boy says “ oh ‘Dreckly my ansome “ that means anything between ready within the hour or sometime next month. Drove me insane when younger, but now like @Cab-over Pete...
