Working in a Nucular Power station in S A, When the maintanance crew shorted out the safety circuit that racks the 1200amp automated breaker to do a planned maintenance, when they racked the breaker in they left the safety circuit disconnected and left a shifting spanner across 2 of the bus bars and these automated breakers rack themselves in 3 times before they disconnect, not much left of the room by the time it racked out for the 3rd and final time, great days

Was at the BBC for a few months down at White City. Access to some of the studio`s was available and I remember watching Paul Weller performing `Town called malice` and thinking hmmm I`m getting paid fot this.You would not believe how shabby the Top of the Pops set was! Also saw the MOTD boys and the AB FAB girls about the place and watched a few acts on Jools, yes we did some graft,too !

Wiring lights in bell tower of church at about 21:00 during winter, had to walk up 2 flights of creaky stairs to get to lights and about 20 mins into job i heard footsteps coming up stairs so i thought caretaker or somebody else had come to see me, but when i looked down nobody there and i also noticed that i could see if any cars were in car park but there were none and church was a way out in country, continued working thinking i had imagined it and the i heard footsteps again and a door creaking so i packed up tools (well i think i did) and made a run for it and i swear i could feel someone following me!!! nearly wrung clutch out of car taking off.

Museum of Wales in Cardiff, with about 350 boards in the strangest of places, and the Museum of Welsh Life just outside there where I had to knock all the power off and walk into all bedrooms in a castle, one scared the crap out of me as I'm sure something moved in there...

Don't know what the problem is with buildings that are haunted, one of my mates has a house that has ghosts occasionally see them in the garden when relaxing in the hot tub with a few beers

For interesting places I've worked fitted an intruder alarms in two mortuaries in one there was a PM in progress in the other the mortuary tech opened the fridge slid out the tray and said this guys from the area you live do you know him
The secure psychiatric unit of a local hospital only allowed one tool at a time out of the tool box and it must be locked at all times and a minder watching your back while you work was more worrying than meeting a ghost
Had a week in Albania installing some radio comms kit it was made more interesting by the amount of gun fire that periodically started up
The best one has to be the nurses homes at the local hospital I have worked there a number of times on switchroom refurbs and planned maintenance and you nearly always get a few scantily clad nurses asking you when the power is going to be turned back on or if she can plug her kettle or toaster into the temporary power supplies that we are using
