    my dad worked for the GPO for about 40 years. he was a jointer. made it to an ST. he ended his days walking round with a spray tin of yellow paint, identifying cables for builders putting up new builds the jammy git British Telecom - Page 2 3025408739 . he used to make me laugh when he was working on call. he used to get me or my sister to kick down the bollards that they used to put up around the green box's to stop people falling over or injuring themselves while they were being worked on. then get mom to phone it through so he got called out at £40 a time. proper family business British Telecom - Page 2 3025408739
