"I'm just checking the insurance details for the model of Milkbeck Industrial Estate. Is there security in the shopping centre?"
"Yes, the shopping centre has 24-hour on-site security guards."
Ten minutes later...
"I'm just checking the insurance details for the model of Milkbeck Industrial Estate."
"I know. We just spoke."
"Ah yes. Is the library alarmed?"
"Nervous about the future but not necessarily alarmed."
"Does it have a burglar alarm?"
Two minutes later...
"Has the burglar alarm got 24-hour response?"
"Yes, by the 24-hour security in the shopping centre."
Uh? Who'd steal the bloody thing? And how???
I mention this to Seth.
"You'd have thought they'd have checked the security beforehand. I wonder what would have happened if I'd said no."
"I wish they had. Himself won't let me switch on the burglar alarm. Not since he cocked it up and we had to pay the call-out fee to get it reset."
