Wow, get in the shit and you find who your mates are, I've had "mates" who I've known for 10+ years, and employed who have turned around and shit on me when the going gets tough.

Shame really because what goes around comes around. I value the word trust. Doing what I do (did) I had a terrible summer but I paid all the guys that worked for me, O.K, some wages where late but I made it my mission to pay everyone, people who are members here will vouch for that.

I have now been shat on, that doesn't bother me to much but me missus, is distraught, she has been shat on by so called friends and is very tearful and upset........wrong move.

Interesting times ahead, but, never trust a civvy, their moto is "me, myself and I"

Hi, Blobs, I can remember being told the same thing 12 years ago when I left the mob.

Do not trust civvies, they will laugh at your stories, appear interested in your life then stab you in the back without remorse.

It was good advice then and I have been a bit too matey with my workforce in the past and then realised they do not give a shit about anything except themselves.

Hope your good lady can get over the hassle, you are far far better than they will ever be, and your old man has done things, been places they cannot even dream of.

if we on RR can help give us a pm

Best Wishes Blobbs and Mrs Blobs, hope you can have a Merry Christmas and a happier and more prosperous New Year

Royal Navy's nickname

The origin of the Royal Navy’s nickname is obscure; some sources, including the Admiralty Manual of Seamanship, say that it derives from one Andrew Miller, a zealous officer of the Impress Service during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, who ‘recruited’ so many men to His Majesty's ships that the navy was said to belong to him.

Earlier (19th century) sources variously suggest that Andrew was a slang name for a man o' war, that Andrew Miller was a supplier of provisions to the Royal Navy, with such an apparent monopoly that he was said to own the Navy, or that the Press Service officer was named Andrew Walker. The most reliable list of Royal Navy officers does not mention either an Andrew Miller or an Andrew Walker.

What is certain, however, is that the Royal Navy continues to be known as the Andrew, and that there is no absolutely conclusive answer to the derivation of the nickname.

Have you ever heard of Google

You have "friends" in Civvy Street, in the Services, you have "Mates" - people who would share their last fag/drink/quid with you, help you out in a scrap, making the odds 25 to 2, and would travel/offer help/advice/ support if you asked for it. I've been outside for 28 years - "friends" I have a few - "mates" - I have hundreds.

I think Blobbs will be able to dish the dirt on the 'mates' well enough, he put up with screaming kids (Other peoples!! FFS) for years so will no doubt have plans on the boil. MMMMWWWWAAAHHHHAAAA!
Oh, how they'll laugh.
Have to agree that for the most part service bods stick together far better than full time civvies, that being said I've known some right dodgy service geezers and I'm not just talking of proffing off pusser. Measures were taken though so all good.
Best of luck with your troubles Blobbs. Keep your chin up fella :thumright: .

Now a civvy I have friends, ie people I know
In the Mob I had mates ie people I knew and would trust
To this day, I have forgotten friends who passed in the night
Though anyone who served, is still my Mate even if I do not know them yet
As a Mate I would offer any help that I could
It is a service thing IMHO

I'm in the brown smelly kind, any other? I nearly had bloody knuckles last night but avoided that situation by leaving the bar. Like I say revenge is a dish best served cold. I couldn't give two hoots if someone upsets me, but, "they" have managed to upset Mrs Blobbs....wrong fcuking move.

Refer to Avatar. (No, don't - fancied a bit of "Re-branding")

Trust no bastard in a suit who says;
"Hello - I'm from Human Resources....."
Seriously....the difference between "Mates"
militarily speaking, and "friends", of the civilian
type...is quite simple really.
You can never really trust the latter...you will,
but not with your LIFE. The ones that "turn", are
best forgotten and removed from the 2008
Christmas Card List. All my friends are family
members....my mates were all in the Forces
and have scattered to the 4 corners of the planet.
Such is the way of things.
