Drink Problem?

Nor I until I had a good look at the recycling bin one day. Talk about an eyeopener.:eek:ccasion5: Think there was a big culture of it in the job. Not sure what its like today.

That was my problem I suppose as I very rarely drank at home was alus in the pub.
Seeing the overflowing bins full of empties at almost every gaffe it's as if joe public is saying Austerity?, wot austerity.

See "drink" and "problem" don't go together.
How the **** can drinking be a problem. A bloke down the pub said his mate drunk but could not afford it. How the **** does that work.
I'm off out with him, they must fuckin be giving it him.

When the spook or whatever he was interviewed me for Bombers, he asked what I spent my hard earned on, thinking that if I said, its behind every bar and chokey nosh shop betwixt here and the black stump I wouldnt get the job, I said things like, clothes, records, days out to the zoo, lies he dismantled one by one, he knew full well where it went, he just wanted the crack.

Well I thought cross dressing was still taboo then, how'd you get the job.
Was he in the same closet?

Nope. Chambertin, just been down the cellar to check.

It's OK, I was going anyhow as her water needed topping up*.

I spent almost 20 years completely smashed out of my tree.

The rest of the time I was mostly not on watch or DLH or
at Harbour Stations.

I lose track on what is supposedly good for me, bad for me, indifferent for me.

I like Speckled Hen, London Pride, Becks, Peroni oh **** it, Beer. How can it be bad for me? it makes me look big, clever and like a young Sean Connery.

And a massive ****.

When it comes down to the crunch Units is Units, innit?

What the investigator's hadn't taken into account is all those units purchased but not yet consumed.

e.g. My ready-use locker is well-stocked with a wide range of 'Units' although many are (expensively) encased with far better flavourings than the everyday-to-everyday quota.

Case in point:

Guzzler Sire,

Sit up straight and pay attention, damn you - You may have noted that I have little enough time to spare for RR these days so I'll make myself clear:

1. At your Post #10 you mis-spelled that fine burgundy wine as <<Gevrey Chambertain>>

2. At my post #20 I drew your attention to your spelling error in the nicest way possible. Yet your response, quoted above, indicates that you thought that you were right first time; but look again sunshine - You were wrong at #10.

As the site's erudite pedant it cannot be comfortable for you to be called out so please either have the good grace to admit your cock-up or will you bluster your way out a la NMC/RDMT/MLP etc?


Bovvered? Whatever - May the Units be forever with you, how ever they are flavoured or mis-spelled/mis-spelt. :wink:


BTW - For those uncertain of their fine wine etiquette, just remember the RNC Greenwich SD Course's simplest rule:

'Tis white wine with the fish....and red wine wi' th' chips.

Damn you yourself old chap. You must have hacked me and changed it. Maybe.

It would indeed appear that I made a typing error, wouldn't have happened had I been using my quil.

"As the site's erudite pedant it cannot be comfortable for you to be called out so please either have the good grace to admit your cock-up or will you bluster your way out a la NMC/RDMT/MLP etc?" Unkind, but please accept my 'umble apologies nevertheless.
