You know that your neighbours HATE that old rusty fridge that has been sitting abandoned beside your home for the last six months. Your neighbours will LOVE you if they wake up to find that you have dragged that monster to the side of the road for pickup by Ian Bourne and the rest of the crew from the Barbados Sanitation Service Authority.

It only takes a few minutes…

mmmmm….Nice! – Accounts Section At Barbados Public Works Gets A New Vehicle

Yes Sir!

There’s nothing those accountant-types at the Accounts Section of the Barbados Ministry of Public Works need more than a new top-of-the-line 4 door Mitsubishi Raider. This is the Public Works accounting section you see.

Don’t be talkin’ any nonsense about how a little compact auto would have been half the price and saved on gas. It’s all tax money anyway. And for the accounts section at Public Works, tax money is free money.
