Re: Long way around the barn!

If you don't travel with a bit of duct tape you're not a real engineer

Interestingly, we have just been told at my company that duct-tape counts as a “textile” according to Customs/import regulations, and so cannot be included in any international shipment. Which has led to the frankly ludicrous situation of us shipping PCs etc to exhibitions, and then having to schlep out upon our arrival, to the nearest Home Depot / B&Q equivalent to buy the essential duct tape.

I suspect that someone is mis-reading the regulations, but what would I know?

Anon because I’ve given enough clues to the identity of my employer in my previous posting history and I don’t want them to be publicly embarrassed...
