"What You Doing" Moment

Posted by mwbg on 1 May 2011 in English (English)

Just had an interesting "oi, what you doing?" moment in WR9. With laptop, clipboard and smartphone, I was happily updating my notes on newly found postboxes when I was approached by a chap who'd been cutting the grass at a nearby hostelry with an ArnoldJ.
"I'm surveying postboxes; RM don\'t know where they all are !", say I.
"Oh, I didn't know that one was still working.", quoth he and off-toddled.
Must've thought I was an inspector for the DWP.

Still it's better than walking around parks with a cameraphone. Someone once set I should get a HVV so as to render myself invisible.

Does anyone know what's hap with dracos ? Stuff I put on OSM nearly a month ago still hasn't made it to Matthew's www site.

Hello, long time no speak. I've been adding more to SG9-14, CM23 and they've not appeared either... I guess there's a problem...!

What's this DWP? I didn't think the Democratic Workers' Party was in the business of inspecting postboxes...

DWP = Department for Work and Pensions : government department responsible for paying Jobseekers' Allowance to people that are looking for work. They send officers out if they suspect someone is working but hasn't told them.
