    Why is it

    You wait all day at school for a shiney new delivery to arrive - everytime the phone rings you hope its reception and then as soon as you leave you get a phone call saying its arrived!

    Typical Although it does mean a good reason to get up Monday morning

    200kgs...thats nothing! Try dragging a cubic metre of stones (shingles) weighing in at nearly 1.8 tonnes off a van, then dragging it with 2 others nearly 70 metres

    *edit*

    That said...UPS up any stairs, no thanks! lol
