From: Victoria, Australia
Off to my first airshow in 8 years today! Last time I was guarding aeroplanes, this time I'll be hiding away from the crowds
Could be worse, you could be working in the car park!! Directing thousands of hot, frustrated and irate members of the public to park their cars in neat rows (essential to get them all in) is like herding cats!! The line of vehicles arriving at the gates stretched to the horizon and I still feel for those who had been lined up for hours and had nearly gotten to the front of the queue when at 3:30pm we closed the gates and started sending out the first vehicles heading for home!!!
The funniest thing was the the pair of oldies who turned up and asked if we had seen their red car because they had forgotten where they had left it amongst the thousands of other vehicles!!
We just found them a quiet corner and gave them a cuppa and told them to wait as theirs would be the one that was left after everyone else had gone (about 4 hours later...)!!!
(One day I will learn to spell - or check before posting....)
Uh oh, Firefox has a spell checker!! What excuse can I use now!!!
