2 men, two days to erect a bit of scaffold and change 5 light bulbs!! The lazy, idle buggers, they want a good kick up the aisle! Any half-decent scaffolding team would be in and out of there in 3 hours flat with everything back on the truck. I had scaffolders who put up a three-lift all round my 5 bedroom house in England in 4 hours, and that included several mugs of builders and chatting-up the neighbor's daughters.
Remembered banter went something like this;-
Scaffolder. "'Allo darlin', wot sort of dogs that wot you got there, then? Pretty girl "Well, it's a German Shepherd, actually". Scaffolder, (in mock-terror, hauling himself effortlessly up to the next lift with one muscular arm). 'Ere 'Arry, theres a Kraut down 'ere, dressed up as a bleedin' dog!"
Mind you, I notice the article was in the Daily Mail, so it's probably all a load of eyewash!
Wood work but can't!
