Good news that the new afternoon driver appears to be another nice person. I know the odds were in our favour, but we've beaten the odds too many times to find much comfort in that.

It's frustrating to be constantly having to depend on situations which are out of my control. I have no say in which companies are hired or what standards they are held to. The byzantine labyrinth of bureaucracy ensures that it's difficult to get straight answers. Everything is designed to conceal and cover, so that blame can't be thrown.
