    Years ago, when i worked for Dublin Bus, the city chamber of commerce wanted to promote Dublin tourism, so they got 4 double decker buses painted with a scene of the river Liffey. The painter was a new guy just in from Birmingham. He got a picture of the Liffey and used that as a template. Now, it was someone in HQ who got the photo from a professional photographer but it was a mirror image so everything was on the wrong side. The painter duly painted the 4 buses at a cost of 60000 grand with the traffic driving the wrong way and all the famous buildings on the wrong side! Monumental CockUp By The Egyptians 3025408739 . The bosses tried to blame the painter but he just produced the photo.

    Not a montimental cock up, but was funny at the time, we got a new contract and about twenty trucks were ordered to service it, all our trucks were registered in Scotland so had registration numbers prefixed SF, each truck had its own parking bay in the yard and a vehicle number plate placed at the front of each parking bay indicated which vehicle should be parked where.... A foreman was given the job of ordering the number plates for the parking bays, he was an ex army guy and in his mind was very efficient,,, spoke and acted in an army manner, one of his traits was to speak in phonetic alphabet, so he orders the number plates by telephone, SF51 ABC, SF51 ABD, etc, etc, or in his language Sierra Foxtrot Five One Alpha Bravo Charlie, etc, etc,,, what did we get, twenty odd times CF51 ABC, CF51 etc, etc, etc...
