The best job on the site was teamaking and sweeping up. In between, I actually had to do some real work, mostly digging and shifting stuff, because you had to be specially trained to be a hod-carrier, carrying bricks up a ladder to supply the ‘brickies’. Mixing mortar for them in the cement mixer was fun, and I was allowed to do that.
The very best fun though was shifting bricks using the dumper truck. These tricky truckies have the steering on the back wheels. Invaluable training for getting cars into tight spaces!
As Harold would say “fucking brillifuckingant!”
