He Would Not Except It For Free ......

Like many owners of small businesses these are trying times .......... Having said that.  hard work and endeavor will always win through , I was somewhat cheered by the conversation I had with the chief Engineer of one of the many hospitals which I visit . We were discussing certain aspects of preventative maintenance for time  critical  machinery in the various parts of the hospital.   Before I left, over a cup of tea in the WRVS at the main reception,  he said  that after nearly thirty years working in heavy industry this was the happiest place he had ever worked in ...... seeing the children and their families, hearing their stories gave him more job satisfaction that at any other time . The rooms  for children with bone marrow disease are used almost  twenty four seven with few exceptions he added, and posed a particular problem for maintenance of the various air handling units located in the ceiling. Next available time is Thursday night , I said that as my youngest son had been  and indeed still is a patient at the hospital I would do a survey on Thursday night for free. This fast became a game of verbal ping pong , I said I wouldn't charge for few hours on a Thursday night and he said he wanted to pay and so forth.....

Several cups of tea later..... some stories of footie fishing and drams the matter yet undetermined....

For All the staff and patients
