This morning I had a distressed phone call from OH, you remember him, the one who locked himself in the back of a van at the ferry port.

He picked up a bit of auditing work and had to visit agricultural premises.

While he was there his car was sprayed with slurry!

He has had to go out and do the other visits in my car. If that comes home covered in s**t he will find himself covered in blood.

remember years ago we used to fly model aircraft from a farmers' field...he had sprayed this field, and we sort of got used to the smell..after flying we went into a local pub, as you do..........
a week or so later we went back into this pub, to the remarks of........

"you lott are barred.........weve had to have the carpets and all cleaned."...we had taken the smell in, on our shoes.........LOL

Pop a good film on for him to relax tonight, perhaps Oklahoma, you can sing along with your own lyrics to the "slurry" with the fringe on top.

I hope the farmer had the good manners to wash it off for him.

Many years ago, waiting at traffic lights, a HUGE truck full of cows did a right turn, too fast. The poop that was on the floor went sideways and all over the car next to me. Poor souls had their windows down.

The smell was unbelievable.

So were the screams and swearing.

" and that was only from the cattle!!!"

A perfectly reasonable reaction from farm employees who dislike auditors, I'd have thought !
Wonder what they had to hide?
Could have been worse, next time it could be a little accident with a shotgun!

Don't think it was that sort of audit.

He was counting plastic trays.
