I'd be worried in his place. He's just been through bigger surf in a digger than I have in a RIB...

Never mind bucket up or bucket down, who the f**k thought sitting in a digger on that shore was a good idea?

They must be paid from the neck down!

I watched for a good half hour till they realised how stupid they were, I thought I'll be calling the RNLI any minute there was no one else around

Digger and dumper truck stuck in mud - YouTube I know the driver in the machine pulling the dumper out here, heads rolled, he was also telling me he got caught out bye the tide during the towyn floods in the 80's, he dropped all the shutters on the machine and was guided out via walky talky, they worked for 3 weeks 24hr's a day and we haven't been flooded since (touch wood), but I have to agree here they do look a bit lost with two mini diggers on a beach lol

Tale told to me today by a mate who lives in a council house.

It took 11 council workers (3 crews of 3 plus 2 inspectors) to change 2 window frames and put 4 tiles in a replacement bathroom (that was compulsorily fitted to his house) -and the work that was being done was remedial work because the council's window fitters messed up the original installation.
