    Jack gets a contract!

    Post by Perfectspecimen on Wed 8 Jun 2016 - 3:12

    Well for the past year or so Jack, one of my offspring, has been working for Fenland District Council as a dustman but has been working for one of those agency type set ups. At first he had to turn up at the yard at 6am and if they wanted him he would get a days work. As time has gone on and he has proved reliable so he has progressed to working every day. Anyway on Monday they called him in for an interview for a permanent (proper job) with a contract, albeit only 3 months but thats a giant leap in these days of zero hours shite. Not everyones cup of tea I know but he enjoys the job and gets a nice suntan into the bargain too! Upshot is he gets contract so well done Jack! I will have a word with him tomorrow about getting one of those Council flats........... Oh, my old mans a dustman, he lives...............  
    He apparently has accrued about 14 days holiday pay too. Silly fecker hasnt applied for a replacement passport from his kiddie one. Bad move Jack, could have been your round in Sundowners.........

    Probably turn in to one of the slowest bin rounds in the area, Vince will have him searching through all the bins to see if there is anything worth keeping...

    Vince: "Bring back anything that looks alright Jack". Feckin' Steptoe and Son! Well done to him though. Ain't easy finding work nowadays. Talking about work, see what I saw on a trailer today...this is what the Senior Technician used to drive about in.

    I once towed a guy about 60 miles up the M1 with the strobe lights going, when we got to base camp he was hypnotized and in a deep coma
    I checked his wallet for his wifes phone number but it was empty, so he slept it of for 3 days

    Jack rides a motorbike, he doesnt want a car so I dont think anything good will be collected.
    Never had one of those but had an ex telecom yellow Commer van when I had a greengrocer shop.

    Yeah, but you could stand upright in the hi-top. Mind you, I could stand upright in the normal top...
