Listen in, listen Ian!
management fuckups are costing the economy. When lots of people are ill because of a deadly plague, they're only too eager to assign made up monetary values to the behaviour of the workshy, but when it's their friends, there's nothing of the sort. Incidentally, you may like to note the absence of the phrase "Employing a sufficient number of drivers" in the "What we're doing to ease the situation" section of that First Crapital Connect page.I was late for work this morning. The 9.32 was cancelled and the next train was delayed until after ten, so I caught the bus to Archway and got the tube in instead. Incidentally, why is it that the CBI never seem to pluck a number out of the air to tell us how much |
I'm not really as grumpy as that paragraph makes me sound, because I was reading BBC Wildlife Magazine1 on the way here, and it had great pictures of leopards in which cheered me up, including one in which a leopard had dragged a giraffe that it had caught up a tree to eat. There was also an advert for a trip to go and see Birds of Paradise, but sadly I don't have £10,250 to spare. Sigh.
