April’s Skip Chick: Fun-loving Nicola gives us a crash course in roofing

SHE likes a laugh and has been known to make an entrance. Meet our very own ‘ginger nut’ Skip Chick, Nicola Cotter!

Hi Nicola! Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m 30 years old and I work at Budget Skips Services Ltd as Transport Manager.

A job that’s bound to take you places! Tell us more.
I’ve been there for five and a half years. I’m responsible for managing the direction and co-ordination of
all transportation.

Apart from wielding so much power, what do you like about the job?
I love the laugh and banter I have with the customers and our drivers.

And anything you don’t like?
I would happily live without men being so hormonal over the smallest things. And they say woman are bad!?

Whaddya mean hormonal?! We just need our coffee… NOW! What’s the funniest thing to happen at work?
I used to be a manager at Pizza Hut. I once locked myself out of the building, so I climbed onto the roof… and fell through it! At least I got back in.

Bet that was the strangest topping anyone’s ever had on a pizza! Apart from that, what’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
When I was younger on holiday in Ayia Napa, I entered a wet T-shirt competition.

The T-shirt hasn’t been made that can contain our curves – unfortunately. How about a romantic night out?
Can’t say I’m very romantic, but just make me laugh and I could be anywhere and not care!

We’ll bring our joke book. What would be your ideal superpower?
Easy! I would be invisible so I could spy on people and scare them.

Can you surprise us with a fascinating fact about yourself?
I’m naturally ginger.

We’d never have guessed! Sum yourself up in just three little words.
Loud, funny and charming.

You look very stylish, can’t imagine you’ve ever had a fashion disaster – or have you?
When I was younger my parents put me in an orange bomber jacket – while I had ginger hair. That’s not ok!

As they used to say, ‘you’ve been Tango’d’! What’s for dinner?
I make a lovely lasagne and not too bad at cakes either. I’m multi-talented!

We’re very impressed. Imagine you were queen for a day, what law would you introduce?
That we have a nap halfway through the day at roughly 11am until noon. That would be lovely!

Imagine winning millions on the Lottery. What would you buy?
I would pay someone to do my hair and makeup every day so I could look nice without making any effort at all.

Well you look perfect to us. Finally, make us laugh – hit us with your best joke.
What did the traffic light say to the car? Don’t look! I’m about to change.

Groan… Suppose we should have expected that one from a transport manager!

All that’s left to say is thanks Nicola – you’ve been a superb Skip Chick!
