    small world.

    I do Sainsburys Kelso quite regular (I’m a backshift Driver, so usually down that way after 19:00 from loading at Grangemouth), the Coldstream must be a dayshift drop as that’s one of the few I’ve not been in.

    I done Lauder Co-op last week, and do the Esso in Gala quite regular too.

    Retired. I was over 50 years; a tin miner; a Youth worker, a lecturer in Community Studies, an education management consultant/trainer and professional fund raiser.
    Most of which involved a lot of driving. Well OK not the mining.
    Now just use the car for well deserved days out with my beloved, aged Mother, relatives and friends.

    Been working for most of the last 25 years as a freelance consultant through an agency and consultancy company, either as a lead business process improvement consultant or lead business analyst. Been a developer too which is boring.

    Prefer private sector as hated public sector despite some good workers, it’s just the management are so incredibly inept they wouldn’t last 1 second in the private sector as so useless and arrogant, public sector is so unbelievably wasteful too.

    Always work on huge transformation programmes in telecoms companies. Most interesting and complex business, far far far far more complex than the finance industry that I’ve also worked in. Makes me laugh when these clueless London tools make out the finance industry is complex, telecommunications is a million times more complex.

    Last programme at a mobile telco lasted 3 years, cost about £200 million. Current project will take about 2.5 years and cost about £220 million.

    It makes me laugh how much public sector projects cost. They’d probably spend double that if not triple.

    Next car is probably an r8.
