Probably Sounds A Bit Weird Question

In 1959 I worked for Parkins the builders who's offices were in Whiston , The site we worked on was at Bradway Tinkers corner .

 

The foreman was called Jack Horne and he was very strict with us apprentices , he would not let us use the toilets in the nearly finished posh houses and we had to go where ever we could , One of our jobs was to clean the finished houses out and Jack used to inspect our attempts at this by running his fingers on door tops and also in the airing cupboards looking for dust we may have missed , 

The airing cupboard was  ceiling high and Jack had to stretch up to feel the tops rails for any dust without being able to see the spot .

One inspection he stretched up and uttered the foulest building language ever heard on any building site ever .

 

Snuff ,(nickname) A bricklaying apprentice had done his no two on a sheet of newspaper and stored it on the top shelf of the cupboard knowing that Jack would do his usual trick looking for dust before giving us the usual rollicking , All hell broke loose as Jack was covered in the offending turd , He stopped ourSaturday morning (time and a quarter pay on Saturday) and made our life hell for weeks , but we never saw him do his dust sweep again .

:hihi: :hihi: :hihi: 

Brilliant story Cuttsie,

It's even worse for women. I used to travel long distances for site visits. No facilities for women in those days! I used to make a note of every McDonald in the area.

That's why a 'she wee' has been invented!

Cuttsie, it’s quite a while since 1959 but I can tell you that an obnoxious local health and safety guy has been wondering where the stink in his office has been coming from for the last week or two. That’ll be the turd sat in his suspended ceiling, not mine I hasten to add. Do carry on your “came home with a horse “ thread, it gave me some good laughs 👍

Cheers buddy boy , will look it up , Old Bonny my horse at Parkins was the only building worker I ever worked with who crapped where  ever the fancy took her , So this thread is dedicated to her .

As a trainee nurse and midwife I did two 3 month stints in the community with both my professional mentors having in depth knowledge of suitable toilet facilities in their areas. You wiped your feet on the way out of some of the properties I visited let alone venture into the loo

As a retired SRN I never finished up being a district nurse but I had never thought where these nurses would go to the toilet. I suppose you did see some really dirty ones !

RE Cuttsie’s story where would you get that kind of dedication and pride in a new build anymore ? Answer nowhere you would be lucky if there’s gobbo between your bricks.

You will be lucky to find a bricklayer, no one wants the hard work any more , some don't leave school till they are in their twenty's . All the recent TV news has been about 17 and 18 year olds jumping up and down at exam results , they are not even contemplating work just another three or four years at Uni , Then some of em end up on the tills at Aldi .We left at 15 on a Friday by Monday we were grafting , it produced trades men and women and contributed to the Country's wealth and taxes .
