A Welcome Cocktail Hour

I blocked the lace this afternoon and safety pinned the ‘arms’ up so I could judge its suitablity as a shrug:

He proved today that he was a complete moron when I sent him to measure the width of some driveways and he couldn’t cope when the sides weren’t well defined, he just kept on walking up the shoulder, he was well off up the road before I realised and had to call him back. And he walked out in front of a car. This bloke fell asleep in a (short) meeting on his first day with us, and things never improved.

I could rant on all day about his fuckwittery but I think you get the idea.
