    Our little company has been took over by the French, we are now a part of a multi national with plans for a massive new factory and state of the art machinery.

    I guess you'll just have to make due with 30 hour work weeks and 5 cig breaks per hour.

    Is your hammer big and red, and has "OFF" printed on it white letters?

    I thought you were taken over by the French last year? :confused: Or was that just a visit where they were trying to decide if they wanted to acquire your company? I remember some discussion about you going to France to teach them how you do what you do so well.

    I thought it was pie in the sky, this French company is huge, i could only wonder why they would want a tiddler like us, now i understand we will be distributing their products as well as our own.
    I doubt we could teach these guys any thing, as i am sure the British make mend an do method would horrify them.
