Man flu, my @rse
Hooray! Today the builders were due to start work again!
But no, apparently the team has called in with flu and so won’t won’t start ’til later this week.
Who comes up with these excuses? And since when did a whole building team get flu and not be able to start a job?
I think what the builder meant to say is “I’m sorry, we’ve overrun on a job and we’ll be with you in a few days.”
Still, if they have all got flu then I’d hate to see a building site of men with man flu. Can you hear the moaning and groaning from where you are, anywhere in the UK?!
