Fortified by Christmas lunch, a good fight with their wives’ obnoxious uncles and a six-pack while watching the Bond film, Britain’s sewage workers say that they are ready for December 27, which is traditionally their busiest day of the year. In a strange way, some of them quite look forward to it and refuse to just ‘go through the motions’.
‘Just like top batsmen relish facing a world class fast bowler, so we brace ourselves with professional pride for the wave after wave of coruscating, badly digested Boxing Day turds to float our way, fouling pipework and refusing to disperse even after chemical treatment.” said veteran sewage worker Roy Cotterill. ‘One day, maybe, I’ll even recognise one of my own.’
