Fun jobs?

I drove to Swindon the other day. It’s good for the soul. I hope. It’s also good for catching up on audiobooks and podcasts.

Anyway, sitting in slow-moving traffic on the way back, I found myself behind a van which had on its back doors a list of bullet-points setting out the services that the company offers. I forget the details; it was an engineering company doing things like ‘high-speed diamond cutting’. But one service did stand out.

“Robotic Demolition”

Oh, boy – I’ve no idea what that is, but I really want to do it!

I don’t have children, but just imagine what it would be like as a school kid, when asked what your father does, to have that as the answer… instant playground admiration…
