Piglet’s Grandad gets to stop shift work at a sprightly 60.

He’s been after quitting the shop floor for years. He even attempted to join QA and use their computers. I’m not saying he and computers don’t get on, but, well, I am.

He tried for a forklift job when the existing driver was fired for throwing a chair at someone, but he sued for unfair dismissal, which takes some chutzpah.

When it looked like it fell through he applied for redundancy, shocking the bosses into acceptance.

4.5 day weeks on a forklift with sensible Piglet time. A happy Grandad!
