    Evening all. Home before 8 !!!!
    You're gonna love this.:
    Right, I'm due to finish at 8, so I'm rota'd to drive until?? 8.43.
    Because I'm a super duper sort of a chap , I call my customers to let them know I'm running early and would it be convenient to come to them early. 
    Long and the short of it, I'm back in store at 6.55.
    I unload the van, post van checks, get it back into the car part etc so I go to the duty manager:
    " I'm back almost 2 hours early ( not a flicker of reaction ) but I didn't take my 30 minute break. Can I go home in 5 minutes? ( it was 7.25) 
    " you're supposed to have your break when it says so on the route"
    " the break was scheduled AFTER my last delivery "
    " I know what you're saying, but......"
    "OK so, shall I go and sit in the dining room for half an hour then work between 7.55 and leave at 8?"
    " just this once you can go early. "
    Do they understand the meaning of DOGMA?
    I wonder if I'd rocked up 2 hours late if I'd have been met with the same level of indifference?

    Bit creaky here too, post gardening.  But learnt from Friday's experience to do several different jobs, rather than wear out my pruning hand... and wore my thickest leather gardening gloves, cos my Rosa moyesii bites me on a regular basis.   ;)

    Glad you've got home ok BL, and found an easy way on to the forum!

    Any pie left, Dove???   :p

    Ooh, thanks Dove!  I've worked up an appetite and OH is out...

    I could swap for a slice of lemon sponge if desired.   :)

    Did anyone see this new advert? 

    @Dovefromabove, I feel better after seeing this advert.
    We had the most ridiculously camp version of this track as we left our wedding ceremony after signing the register.
