...and there were none. How many men does it take to change a lightbulb? Answer, 6. Or 6 when they're trying to find out why the lights in our lounge/dining room don't work. We must have had about 6 or 7 visits from various folk trying to figure out why our lights won't work. All I ever seem to witness when they come round are a lot of animated discussions, lots of puzzled looks and furrowed brows, and plenty of Gallic shrugging of shoulders. I even got taught how to find out if a battery is dead or not: put the metal bit against your tongue. If you get an electronic shock, it still works. Many thanks to the electrician for teaching me that trick. Much appreciated.
Anyway, several weeks later, all the lights upstairs finally work.
