The only news website dedicated to Lichfield & Burntwood

You shouldn’t laugh…

It’s the little things that make you chuckle in life and this week’s smile was raised in the jobs section of the Lichfield Mercury.

The advert was for an experienced tractor driver. Obviously this instantly narrows the field, but it was the next bit which I think really sorted the wheat from the chaff on this job:

“An interest in potato production would be an advantage.”

So if you know your King Edward’s from your baking spuds then this really is the job for you!

A volunteer wrote this. Say thanks with a coffee.

    Glad someone got it! I was going to go puntastic with this one, but then thought better of it.

    I like crisps? Does that make me a contender?
