By gum there are plenty of so called experts giving us advice on what to do to beat the virus. |
In the immortal words of Blaster Bates - Fred Dibnah, the definition of an expert is as follows - 'Ex' is a hasbeen and a 'spert' is an unwanted drip. I think he had the right idea.
Geordie replaced all the windows in his house with an expensive casement type with shutters. It had been a year since they were fitted and he received a telephone call from the contractor who installed them. He was complaining that the work had been completed a year ago and he still hadnít been paid for them. Geordie told him, ďHang aboot bonny lad, yor fast talking sales bloke told me at the time that in one year these windows wud pay for themselves. Weel itís been one year.Ē There was silence at the other end of the phone before he hung up.
