Do it right

There is a team of men (all 3 of them) cleaning the walkway outside my office window. They are using a power cleaner thingy, and I’m amazed at the difference it is making to the slabs. They’ve gone from a dark dull grey to an off-white colour. Sort of.

Thing is, they’re not doing the greatest job. I watched one yesterday, working slab by slab, blasting away the dirt only to find that he obviously couldn’t be bothered as some slabs are cleaner than others. The difference in colour between these cleaned and ‘sort of cleaned’ slabs is very obvious and I just don’t get it. It’s not like he got bored towards the end of a row or anything, it seems to be a completely arbitary choice. Some slabs got the full treatment, others got a quick once over and that was it… very odd.

Wonder what his supervisor will say, it’s not like he can cover up his laziness.

Now I should really be leading up to a comment about work ethic, jobs not getting done properly and so on. But I’m sure you get my point.
