Consequences - Not The Game
fbb has occasionally been upbraided for criticising "hard working" employees for their lack of urgency in updating bus information. The problem, of course, is not the "hard working" lads and lasses but the policies and timescales dreamed up by the higher echelons in middle and senior management.
Sometimes events conspire to obstruct the smooth flow of data management.
So it was for fbb and the Sheffield tram updates due today!
All was going swimmingly when fbb's laptop suddenly switched to "battery". A short while later came an anguished squawk from the catering facility as Mrs fbb discovered that the fridge-freezer had stopped fridging and freezing!
A quick check of what used to be called "the fuse box" revealed that the RCD was OFF and wouldn't stay ON!
But where could a short have suddenly shorted without a curl of black smoke and an acrid burning smell?
It was now Mrs fbb's fault! She had inadvertently compounded Mr Tubble' heinous crime by deciding to tidy up the junk hole (a k a storage alcove) alongside the fridge-freezer unit, seen below in mid tidy.
But more significantly the hungry creature had enjoyed some insulation from said flex.
The fridge-freezer had to be pulled out; and, to achieve this, the freezer contents had to be emptied.
Fitting the plug then involved a creaky 77 year old sitting awkwardly on the kitchen floor to access the flex, then removing insulation from the three wires (teeth still a useful tool). The plug is VERY fiddly, not helped by fbb's cataracts and an occasionally wobbly left hand.
Eventually the plug was fitted and a small black extension cable sourced - which didn't work!
