Once he was done taking about five minutes to replace two pieces of tape, he took a further 15 minutes to show back up with paperwork for tape. The pilots were less than pleased, as we were already behind schedule.
Yeah, I would not put it past WN mechanics to screw around like this, or in conceivably worse ways.
