"Valid observation. Don't forget the post office (although for them it is a source of revenue). Do persons requiring certified documents appreciate the cost incurred by ones who can ill afford the extra expense? As you say, verify documents at…"
I'm going to risk being accused of forming a "league of extraordinary (old) gentlemen" by supporting your perspective. You said it all very succintly. I was hoping that one of the lessons that would come out from the incidents I…"

I am a pensioner. My working life was spent, initially in quality control as an analytical chemist in the petroleum industry, from where I moved into HRD. From the petroleum industry I moved to the sugar industry, continuing in HRD and gaining experince in generalist HRM in an unionised environment. My HRD base was enlarged to inculde OD and designing for learning and change. I am committed to my Christian ministry.
