Officers - can't live with them, can't live without them. I have been inspired to start this thread due to some of the postings of potential officers :cry: that it seems shouldn't be let out on their own, let alone given a position of authority on a war canoe, or worse, a boat! Then there are the 'funny stories' that we can all recount regarding our hosifers in the course of their duties, and it is these that I think we should know more about. Now we in the WE world all know about the young thruster who keeps asking 'how long until it's fixed Chief' etc, :evil5: but my pet hate was when a baby WEO would come into wherever it was I was working at the time and ask 'Can I borrow a screwdriver Chief?'.................WTF?................ So being slightly more subtle than that, over the years I had two versions of a response. One was a sixpenny Woolies with the end ground off - response 'but Chief, this has no blade on it' - 'exactly Sir!' The other was a plastic screwdriver stolen from a kiddies play tool box many moons ago (and it was bright pink!) but always made said baby WEO go away. :blob4: Please, all of you in other branches, feel free to contribute your, well, contribution! PS No disrespect intended. Cough.
