Don't Talk to the Dummy
I visited a flat in Walthamstow where the occupier was a children’s entertainer. Whilst I was in the property he was rehearsing his act in the spare bedroom with a ventriloquists dummy. Every time I chatted to the occupier, the dummy replied. I’ve seen a great deal during my long career as a RICS surveyor whilst undertaking survey inspections, but this was a first.
