Just got the phone book in, a rather slim 282 pages, less robust than the current muuuurder story I'm reading.:death

I remember when "worlds strongest man" type dudes used to struggle to tear them in half. :spud7

The Yellow Pages pamphlet is another one.

I remember someone destroying my letterbox 30 years ago by hammering it through my door.

Came home to splinters of wood and screws on the carpet.

Now it's about the size of the menu from the local Chinese takeaway.

Years ago, I got a part time job delivering Yellow Pages.

I drove to a place in Bellahouston to pick up my allocation.

I drove an Avenger back then!

As I loaded the boot, the rear end of the car got lower and lower.

Boot full... Back seats were loaded too.

Car filled, I set off for Paisley.

The underside of the car was scraping along the road all the way!

How that car didn't catch fire I'll never know.

All books successfully delivered... In the pishing rain... Mostly to tenaments!

Brilliant! :lol:

On the positive side, delivering to flats is pretty damn fast.

Try delivering to detached houses.

I wonder if Oaky lived in a tenement back then.
