Not everything can be measured

Posted in The Job - General by 200

A great little story in the Telegraph today about a blind lady who was devasted to find out that the start of the novel she had been writing did not come out after the pens she was using ran out of ink.

Her son arrived to read back the work she had written only to find that 26 pages were completely blank. After contacting the local police in Dorset, the Fingerprint department agreed to see if they cold¬†retrieve¬†the words that had been written using forensic handwriting analysis. One of ¬†Dorset’s finest spent her lunch hours deciphering the indents on the pages until all 26 pages of the story had been recovered.

This is something which you won’t find in any graphs and won’t appear in any statistics.

    Lovely story and a job well done by Dorset but am I the only one who had a quiet giggle at the poor woman’s expense. I feel ashamed and my wife has admonished me.
