Bureaucracy in the driving seat — 7 Comments

  1. If Roger allows you to come over to France, I will have to introduce him to my Claudia.    A sexy voiced beauty who keeps me on the straight and narrow correct route.  

    I do love it when I have to take a diversion and she tells me off with a "Recalculating".   I can detect the disdain in her voice.

    • I presume Roger is well acquainted with Claudia if they are both living up there on the satellite?  It must be a fairly intimate place?

      Roger used to tell me three or four times to do a U-turn [getting more peeved each time], before heaving a sigh and announcing he was recalculating.  He has got used to my ways now and accepts my superior knowledge.

  2. It takes me longer than a heart attack to enter the post code in a sat nav. Nothing would benefit ambulance drivers more than a bit of local knowledge in my opinion.

    • Adding a SatNav would just add to their local knowledge and/or the existing systems.  I'm just suggesting that there might be times when a SatNav could fill in the gaps where the other systems fail.

  3. Coffee machines?  Not to mention the ongoing cost of consumables and maintenance for them.  Why can't the numpty make do with Nescafe instant and a kettle outside of canteen hours?  The rest of us would have to.  In fact, sod that.  These "health professionals" are into telling us that caffeine is a deadly poison which is bad for us and that we should cut down.  He can lead by example and drink (tap) water after lunchtime.

  4. Seems the Irish corporate community have gotten themselves an 'approved supplier list' set up in government. Why only yesterday my good lady returned home with a tale that makes no sense to normal people who can see that it is blatant profiteering but makes perfect sense to the corporate and government thieves.

    Four pints of milk at the local Aldi costs £1. The school canteen gets its milk delivered by van along with everything thing else it needs to create school dinners from a 'central processing unit'. The cook in the canteen has no idea how much this milk costs as she isn't privy to the pricing BUT she has found out that all food suppliers have to be on the government aka County Council, approved supplier list.

    The fact she has to record every amount(of every food and drink) used to create the food and drink that is presented to the children suggests the cost of these supplies has a severe impact on the profitability of the catering company.
    Weirdly the one thing they do not record is the amount of food and drink that goes into the slop bucket every day (it's devoid of sugar and salt) which is usually brimming.

    • If they could subcontract the delivery of school meals to a disciplined charity like the Salvation Army or the Capuchin day centre the kids would gladly eat the food and there wouldn't be enough waste to feed the alley cats.
