This is a question Work Experience

We've got a work experience kid in for a couple of weeks and he'll do anything you tell him to... He's was in the server room most of yesterday monitoring the network activity lights - he almost missed his lunch till we took pity on him.

We are bastards.

How bad was your first experience of work?

George Love
Percival Whiteley Tech (now Calderdale College) Motor Vehicle Dept lecturer.

We'd had the long stand, bucket of steam, bag of sparks for the grinder, 6 ft fallopian tube for the light fitting, 'Jesus' overalls (email for description / instructions) etc. This was 1989 and not yet H&S mad or terribly PC.

Back in the day when you could abuse the apprentice he worked in a wool mill where they dyed the stuff, bailed it etc and throughout the seven floor building had a roof mounted belt driven conveyor for moving the bails etc.

Second week in he's stripped naked except for a belt round his waist which was then attached to one of the hooks on the conveyor. That was his 'factory tour'.....which lasted all day.

He's probably dead now but he was a legend. Don't start him on time save bonus though....
