"It's amazing to think that he was inspired by his choice of wallpaper as a two-year-old."
If his wallpaper influenced him, what the hell is MY son going to end up like when all he had on his walls at the age of 2 was those little chit-chat lizardy things you get in Brunei. A crocodile wrestler?!!?!?!??
Shirley Knott? I lived in Buchenstrasse 1982-85. First time it rained I found an inch of water on the floor. Investigation showed that I could effortlessly slide a piece of A4 paper under the window frame and out into the garden.
I took my complaint to the Estate Office and got laughed out. "It's condensation."
I took it to my QM, who took it to the Estate Office and HE got laughed out. "It's condensation."
Next time it rained, I took another look at the rotten window frame. this was sufficient for half of the bottom edge to fall off.
I took the rotten lump to the QM's office and slammed it on his desk. "What's this, Lcpl Alien?"
Within a month, we had the rainward side of our MSQ completely double glazed. By the end of the year, the whole street had been done.
