Funnily enough, and you'll be familiar with this one Mike, I should've been working but the manager of the contract decided (at one days notice!) that he wanted to do an interim financial review before the next 3 months work, then took a fortnights holiday!!! That's contract engineering for you!
When I arrived (about 10:30am), there was some sort of delay and a group were lined up waiting to go out - they were left at the pits for twenty minutes, then disbanded, then, when they'd all gone back to garages, given 2 minutes notice to 'regroup' .... wasn't the best bit of organising I've seen ...
In fairness I didn't find out what caused the delay (could've been serious) and the rest of the day seemed to go smoothly...
