OPINION: MY FIRST JOB - Paul Smyth, marketing manager at Dennis Computer Division, can remember being in nappies

Filling in time before taking up a sculpture course, Paul Smyth was recruited to drive a Nappy Express van serving households in Liverpool and Manchester.

Filling in time before taking up a sculpture course, Paul Smyth was

recruited to drive a Nappy Express van serving households in Liverpool

and Manchester.



It went pretty smoothly until he had to visit a dodgy Liverpool housing

estate. Spooked by visions of Uzi-toting crack-heads, Smyth dropped off

the goods and accelerated away. Unfortunately he’d left the van doors

open, so dozens of nappies spilled into the road. Suddenly the street

was full of residents looting the unexpected freebies. ’I tried to

grapple with a few locals, but I lost half the stock,’ Smyth admits.

It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
