    When I was a lad the local sandstone church was burnt out and the diocese to demolish the church and clear the site.

    Bids were invited for the site clearance and a local business man got the job with an offer far lower than his competitors.

    He installed a wooden hut and put up a sign advertising rockery stone at very cheap prices. "Help yourself - shilling a wheelbarrow/ 5 bob a car load / 10 bob other vehicles"
    An OAP was employed to collect the sales money.
    The site was not secured and a lot of stone disappeared overnight by people too tight to pay even the cheap price being offered.
    At the end of the job the site was tidied up in a single day using a single wagon.

    The church got the job done cheap
    Loads of locals built cut price rockeries
    Garden centres upto 50 mile away bought lorry loads and sold at a profit
    The OAP got a few bob for doing not a lot.
    The businessman got richer

    Of course these days H&S would not let this happen.

    a good story needs to be believable,and include a hero we can identify with ,and if possible, include an element of David and Goliath. if the only 'victims are faceless wealthy organisations, even better .
    now , it doesn't need to be true, and i don't care if it is or not .is it fairly harmless ,and does it bring pleasure to its readers?
    anyway , shame it was outed so soon ,. realising it's probably untrue makes it impossible to suspend belief now
    too blessed to be stressed
