Little story for you.....
As most of you are aware Dan and I are currently looking for a bit of work to help with the pennies. So we see an advert asking for painters 2 days a week, experience needed.
Me.... "Yeah we'll have that" Dan...... "Mate, did you miss the bit about experience needed?" Me..... "We'll wing it"
So we give Graham a call, seems like a nice bloke and says, yeah just come and meet me at the local cafe and we'll have a bit more of a detailed chat about it.
Next day we rack up at the cafe and meet graham who is sat there looking a bit formal with his laptop and all out. But the discussion is going well, he's after a couple of people to do some painting and a bit of woodwork.... easy enough.
Then he asks us about the experience, crap.... we completely forgot to come up with a contingency plan. (Now, for my friends who are unaware Dan's surname is Hand - this is vital to the plot.)
So the question is looming out there "What experience have we got?" And Dan and I must have been on the same page, If we name a big company he might know it better than we do and then theres the computer, anything we say can be googled.......... or maybe not!
Dan, without batting an eye lid or missing a beat replies "Oh yeah, we've got loads of experience, we work for my family company back home, its called Hand Jobs."
(Yeah, good luck googling that one Graham.)
I swear to God, never in my life have I had to work so hard at keeping a straight face. I mean honestly, Im sitting there racking my brains for a story and BAM, im hit with that A-bomb. And I tried, I really tried but a little snigger made its way out which within seconds meant that both Dan and I were in complete histerics, I think everybody in the cafe thought we had obviously been served a couple of amstremdam style cakes.
Needless to say, we're still looking for work!!
