This is a question Bodge Jobs

If you can't fix it with a hammer and a roll of duck tape, it's not worth fixing at all, my old mate said minutes before that nasty business with the hammer and a roll of duck tape. Tell us of McGyver-like repairs and whether they were a brilliant success or a health and safety nightmare.

While I will only ever live in my father's shadow
Story here

I would like to think that I do my bit for bodging in a similar spirit, and also sticking it to The Man a little.

I work for a faceless grey corporation, and we have a clear-desk policy. This is the idea that at the end of each day, every desk is completely clear, so that anyone can hot-desk at yours if need be.

I, however, run the joint, and as such have made my little corner my home. I have an old plastic crate that the team uses for shredding, paperclips abound as holders for rubber bands, cup stabilizers, and reminders. The plastic on the side of my monitor fell off during an over-enthusiastic game of try-and-twat-each-other, and as such is held on with rubber bands, and my crowning glory is my father's original 1960s camera tripod, which serves as a very useful coat and hat rack.

So, your story is 'my desk is untidy'?

(, Wed 16 Mar 2011, 14:30, closed)
No.
Read it again, lad, and this time pay attention. At no point do I mention tidiness or a lack thereof.

So, your story is 'I keep a load of old shit at my desk'?

Yes lad, that's right.
Now run along, there's a good chap.

I'm glad we cleared that up, it was spoiling this fascinating tale for me.

Rage Against The Machine
will write songs about this.
