    placed a garden ornament on a seat and when i lifted the seat one of the robin red breasts didn't make :rolleyes: and sort off sepperated
    quickly placed it together so you couldn't tell it was eh altered and finished up
    Started feeling bad talking to custy so bit the bullet and mentioned what had happened
    turned out it had broke months earlier :whew:
    so does everyone own up or :lipssealed:

    Probably 50 /50 mate. Depends if I view it as their fault or not. If they leave things in stupid places then they deserve to get broken.

    I always have super glue on me too. You never know when it'll come in handy. I keep a bag in my van with me that's full of bits and pieces that I might need such as mini first aid kit, duct tape, multi tool, knife etc.

    I was cleaning a small bathroom window a few months back and it was slightly open. Without thinking I just pushed it closed. There was a massive ornament behind it and it just rocked back and forward for what felt like a minute. And then I heard the smash. She wasn't in so I could have upped sticks and left without her knowing I was there, but she's a nice lass so I text to own up. I was worried about the cost of the ornament, but more then that I wondered if it had broke the sink below it. Turned out to be pretty cheap so I threw in an inside clean on the next visit to make up for the mess she had to clean up.

    Good thread norm. I knocked over an ornamental cat thingy a couple of months ago, smashed to bits. So I told the old girl. She was fine as she is a lovely person.
    A couple of weeks later in walking past an ex customers house who elbowed me for a polish guy. Anyway low and behold he has a similar ornamental cat in his garden. Then a miracle happened, that cat appeared in the place of the broken one!
    God works in mysterious ways:whistle:
