Winter with a vengeance - the true returns to education

Here in the Planetary Capital, it has gone right cold. Bet it's even worse for you guys out in the sticks. This got me thinking how lkucky I am to be in here posting and not working outside on a building site or something (although probably some sites will stay at home depending on the stage of construction).

Is the ability to post the true return from education?

It is bloody cold here, it's a bit of a shock after that really mild October, it's like jumping straight from Summer to Winter in a day.

We had a lot of rain from the north sea. A typical Hamburg autumn. Storm, rain ...

The October was OK. Since 2 weeks it's really bad. Rain, rain, rain.

Probably better to say Over the past two weeks or for the last two weeks.

I'm hoping it will rain today. My annoying boss has the day off to work on his new driveway. He has a webcam set up so we can watch him, I want to see him rained on, or hailstones or something.

"I can see clearly now, the rain has gone".

Yeah. But I bet it didn't get damned cold.

Mike, are you a voyeur?

No. I would post the link so you could see how boring it is but he is the kind of person who will DEFINITELY check his hit logs and check if he sees loads of referrer hits from one site.

He will give you a raise if hr likes being watched. See if you can persuade him to put the camera in his bedroom next time.

Watching the operations carry on it's becoming obvious that what's going on in his garden is very similar to what happens here.

He orders people around and acts important and some other mug does the horrible jobs.

Incedently he told the builders when they started that he had put a webcam up to monitor their progress whilst he was at work.

The big joke is that he has a webcam to monitor you as well.

That is the joke we have often when he isn't here and we are bitching horribly about him. That and the bugs.

There's the joke about the one-eyed overseer on the plantation.

The overseer used to put his glass eye on a tree stump and bugger off. He had convinced the slaves that he could see them if he left his eye there.

One day, he came back and they were lazing around. Just sitting down, not working.

Then he saw that someone had put a tim cup over his glass eye.

Be creative, Either

(a) Hang towels everywhere; or
(b) Hang towels over yourselves so he won't know who is slacking.

(c) Pretend to hang ourselves with towels and see if he calls an ambulance, just to prove the cams are there.

Or just hang the boss and his bloody webcam.

I feel a Smiths' song coming on:

"...hang the webcam, hang the webcam...."
