Overheard on the site radio
Our school has a large site, so the grounds staff use licensed walkie-talkies to keep in touch. The IT office has one of these radios so we can be kept in the loop, which is particularly important during the holidays. On occasion, the overheard conversations can be hilarious:
Facilities: “Guys, we’ve had a problem reported, there’s a blockage in the visitor’s toilets, could someone take a look?”
Caretaker: “Yeah, no problem, I’ll stick my head in next time I’m passing”.
Facilities: “I wouldn’t stick your head in, I’d use drain rods if I were you.”
