Tbf, Portus and Rhodes weren't a very big company at all, and as we can tell from Rigby having worked 8 hours mostly by himself, they clearly didn't really have the men to cover so many jobs at once.

I've no knowledge of where he worked, but I'd hazard a guess that someone may well remember him as having worked there, if it's true, and if he was there long enough to be noticed.

I'm still reading it. Spot on so far, nice attention to detail, which is something that the diary proponents are sorely lacking.

I imagine all of this will be largely ignored and avoided.
