age old normal problem how do you tell your grandparents that you are joining the royal navy?
one side is ok they, bless them, will forget in a week or two. the otherside well i'm not to sure how to tell them. any suggestions?
thanx for the idea's,
i think i will just go to nan and grandads and say i'm joining the royal navy, i think the simplist option is the best.
your right though, i am that is joining not them.
thanx once again
Unless they are CND, Greenpeace, Religious activists or left over hippies from the 60's. Just tell them cos they are from the last generation that thoght the Armed Forces were a good idea and gave unconditional support so you should get many Gold Stars not opposition.
I had a similar sort of worry. To my mother, i said i was sort of in selection for an engineering job. She was pleased and asked where. Said the RN and she was shocked but pleased. It's not easy to get the conversation rolling, but you'll feel better for it in the end.
