Overlooking the station where, most mornings, I board the train to work is a large builders' merchants and tool hire business. It now displays a notice that proudly proclaims 'Serious about Tool Hire'. This is good to know. Don't you just hate it when you go to hire some tools and you can just tell these guys aren't serious about it? To them it's just a joke, the tool hire lark, a frivolous sideline at best, a divertissement. They care not a jot whether those tools get hired. Why, it's all they can do to keep their faces straight when the subject of tool hire is raised. In future, when I have tool hire needs, I shall shun such lightweights and scapegraces and head straight for the company that is Serious about Tool Hire. That's my kind of tool hire. Serious.
