The Walrus at work BS: Left-handed spoons. Post-holes for sale (91* d) RE: BS: Left-handed spoons. Post-holes for sale 17 Sep 02


Of course, it does work the other way round.
I recall that there was a minor fracas in one of our workshops some years ago when the craftsman teaching an apprentice was having some trouble with a lathe and asked the lad to go to the store for a tin of elbow grease, the apprentice wasn't having any of it and there was a minor (if somewhat loud) arguement between the two of them which ended with the craftsman storming off to the store and coming back with a tin of grease for the lathe (brand name "L-Bow") with which he sorted the problem on the lathe head.
The (slightly chastened) apprentice spent the next month in somewhat messier & less interesting jobs than previously.
