I was not sure where this should be posted, Coffee Lounge or Focus on the workplace.

Anyway upon entering I saw a tree across the drive way entrance which appeared to be blocking the B Double.
However upon getting closer realised it was actually a rollaway.

The driver was not in the vehicle at the time went to “do something” and forgot the handbrake.
Subsequently they were drug tested and failed and as a result sacked on the spot and advised to “make your own way home”.

a bit tough but I guess the guys in the warehouse below are getting a bit nervous now!

At least the missus doesn’t need drugs to hit a tree… or alcohol… or lack of sleep… she just thinks they’re a car magnet!

Hey w’b’b’n, don’t tell the RTA (Road Traffic Authority in Australia.)... nor does mine.

She’s blonde… when she went for her her license, she walked into the licensing building (you’s think she would have seen it) and knocked herself out… never fully recovered, however, she was determined NOT to miss hitting trees through minor technicalities.

Then your grass forest (back yard) could be infested by giraffes… how do you know it isn’t…

There must be someone nearby that gives mower lessons!
