Went to a railway station just outside London today as part of the commissioning process for a simulator we're putting in there. No one told us about the 10 million decibel alarm they had installed over the weekend though. This really annoyed us, though interestingly not as much as it annoyed the nearby catering department's manager. You'd think that someone in charge of so many chocolate bars would be fairly agreeable. Not him. He threw a real whobbly, shaking like a suited up Energiser bunny with a finger pointed out in front. He and I had words. Well, actually he had all the words, and I can tell you they wouldn't have scored much as scrabble words. Mainly because they were mostly 4 letters and probably not even allowed. At least I think he did... I'm not all that great at lip reading. Perhaps having my hands over my ears while he was in full swing didn't help him chill. He was all blue in the face. I couldn't help but smile back at him. It wasn't my fault that no one had told us the code to stop the alarm... and had to leave it going for half an hour... next to his office...
