  7. If you're a lift walt, you could look out for Porn & Dunwoody.

    Yes, it was a real company. In fact, it still is: http://www.pders-lifts.co.uk/pders/history.html although they seem to place less emphasis on Porn these days. Maybe their Woody is finally Dun?
     
  8. The dayjob I ended up in (HM Coastguard) means occasionally having to deal with what is known as 6th Sense (Icy dead people). A few years ago I attended an inquest in Portsmouth. As I got in the lift, the deceased canoeists family got in the lift after me. Trying to be suitably respectful and sombre, I failed miserably when pressing the button for the floor where the inquest was to be held. Schindlers Lifts is a GREAT way to ruin the impression of a grown-up I was trying to convey.
     
  9. Those were the days when pders did place more emphasis on the Porn part of the business, I often used the services of this company then
    WANKUMER BAUSERVICE LIMITED
