Day NINETEEN of 20: they deserve better…
Who? Well actually every single person involved in the entire business of getting OIL into the tanks of people desperate to heat their homes. I do also include the suppliers. They should not be subjected to the business environment that they have to exist in – it simply should be different. Their drivers certainly deserve better. The man that drives this truck:
is called Seamus. He is very popular within the local villages around the hub of our operation because he is always cheerful and he does an amazing job. Even today, on a Sunday, many drivers like Seamus do a truly excellent job in really difficult conditions – like the howling storms and floods right now – and they are a breed unto themselves. Sadly, we have barely used Seamus since his company moved over to the dark side – but when we do the feedback we get reminds me just what a great job these extremely resourceful people do. They deserve better than to be on the end of rants about price because the industry they work in is desperate for redesign.
