SKIP HUNK – SHAUN VICKERS
THORNCLIFFE SKIP HIRE

 

He’s lazy but cuddly – and prone to swiping your skip. Skip Hunk Dr Shaun Vickers loves life on the road.

How many miles on the clock Shaun?

I’m 32.

Plenty of petrol in the tank then. Where do you work and what’s your job?

I’m a skip driver at Thorncliffe Skip Hire and I’ve been here for five years.

Bet it only feels like four years, 364 and a half days. And what do you love most about it?

Being out on the road, it’s like being your own boss.

Just without the big salary. And what gets your rev counter rattled?

Other road users who get in my way.

Don’t they know Shauny boy has a job to do?! Still, bet there’s the occasional laugh to be had.

We used to have a driver who took a fancy to me, and one day he stuck his tongue down my ear, which was quite strange. 

Then once I picked up a wrong skip from a job and the customer reported it as stolen. The police were informed. It was only then that I realised I’d collected
it by mistake!

Crumbs. Never a dull minute when you’re around. While driving all day is fine, what did you really want to be?

I wanted to be a doctor.

Imagine your bedside manner is a thing of beauty. Home time! What’s the first thing you do?

I like to walk the dog, I really like animals.

We’re a sucker for a nature lover. Talking of which, what animal would you be?

I’d be a koala bear, as they’re quite lazy.

Lazy but cuddly. Nothing wrong with that, apart from the diet of eucalyptus leaves. What you having for tea?

Steak with peppercorn sauce followed by sticky toffee pudding!

Now you’re talking! Skip Chick calling – who’s on the phone?

Lisa from Ice Road Truckers, she’s hot!

Get behind that wheel and whisk her off on a date then. Where to?

Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse in Chester.

Very posh! Give us a song that sums you up.

Orange Crush by R.E.M because I’m a ginger and people fancy me.

And you’re so modest too… Thrill us with a fascinating fact.

I’m married to an ex-world champion gymnast.

Wait… you’re WHAT?! We’ll award you a ‘10’ for that one. Now make us smile with your best ever joke.

I was seeing this builder’s daughter, but it didn’t work out. She dumped me, I was gutted… cement the world to me…

Groan… and it was going so well too. Never mind Shaun, you’ve still been a mighty fine Skip Hunk.
