PFY Late For Work

Arrived at work today with an urgent email from the PFY asking us to call him on his mobile phone as he cant ring us as his battery has died!

What he meant was, his work phone has died and our numbers were not in his personal mobile phone.. anyway, so why did we need to urgently ring him??

Assuming the worst that he was in A&E with a broken leg or something, we rang him to see what was going on...

Whilst overtaking a vehicle at 85MPH his front tyre exploded!

It turns out he was doing 65MPH (didnt he originally say 85MPG?) and his tyre spontaneously combusted causing him to narrowly miss hitting the central reservation of the A45 on his way to work.

He managed to limp along to a laybay and change the tyre and then trundled along to Kwik Fit to get his tyre changed.

When he arrived at work he went on to say he was travelling at 75MPH (wasn't it 85MPH or 65MPH?!) and the front tyre burst and that not only did he narrowly miss the central reservation the back end started to go so he nearly ended up doing a Kylie Mingogue (i.e. Spinning Around)...


What speed was he really doing?!

A - 85MPH (as he originally stated)
B - 65MPH
C - 75MPH
D - 115MPH as he's known at work as a bit of a Nigel (Mansell)

PFY Goes to the toilet and comes back with part of his finger missing

We're beginning to wonder if PFY is the right name for the 'New James' as he's more of a Clumsy Oaf (CO) than a PFY right now...

Today he managed to rip off part of his finger by simply going to the toilet!  Apparently he innocently opened the cubicle door and managed to rip a 1cm gash in his finger - at one point he was so distraught he was considering an amputation...

...instead he settled for a plaster which he promptly managed to stick the wrong part over the injury causing him even more unnecessary pain!

PFY Injury from some Pliers

Today the PFY managed to hurt himself with some pliers.  We assumed it was from using them to fix the HP LaserJet M553 he was working on, but no, it was from twiddling them around his fingers like a cowboy does with a gun and he got his finger caught that way!

Laurel and Hardy - Famous Criminal Brothers from London?

We we're talking about Laurel and Hardy at work today when the PFY suddenly announced that (despite being so young) he had heard of them - we prompted him to tell us who they were and he replied that he 100% knows they are the 2 criminal brothers famous for crimes in London or something.

He was mixing up Laurel and Hardy with the Kray Twins!  What we're beginning to learn is that the PFY sometimes guesses things instead of saying he doesn't know something so we're going to have to keep an eye on him going forward...! ;)

Today the 'New James' started working with us and from now on they will be referred to as the PFY (pimply faced youth) from the BOFH diaries...

iPhone and iOS are Trademarks of Cisco/Linksys NOT Apple!

Today James' mind was blown when he learnt that Apple does not own the names iPhone and iOS - they're actually owned by a Cisco company called Linksys and they are used by Apple under license!

The photo shown here is of what I would call the 'proper' iPhone from Linksys.
