A friend is starting a new job on a building site, and has found digs nearby. His new boss says he must get a Potato Clock. But where can he buy one?

I thought it was April 1st (or is it Groundhog Day?) again when I read this.

7.30 sounds a bit late!!

Good job "Graham" isn't as touchy as that other fella on the site or he'd have took off in a huff by now.

Fourm member. Yes it sounds as though alan14 has cracked it. Caught me though. Brings to mind when I first started work and one of the workers sent me up to the local cake shop for half a dozen virgin tarts. (Yes, I went, I have the excuse that I was only 14 at the time).

I'm with alan14 in that it's always been an old joke about getting up at potato clock in the morning.

I'll pass on the messages. He may also get sent for a Long Stand.
