The story of the tea trolley....
One evening, as always, the tea trolley arrived at TK on the 2nd floor at
TVC. Everyone on duty made their way for the late night snack.

roll. When he returned to the control room, he noticed a speck of dirt on
the tube of the machine on TX.

decided to do it himself.
