Well after 4 years sea time, I get to start my 2 year shore time job tomorrow. Fortunately it is in a job that predominately deals with the non sea going navy heavily populated with the fairer sex. Now do I continue on in my bluff, abrasive manner that befits a pissed off 'always facking deploying' matelot. Or do I turn into some sort of crabfat, sensitive and in touch with one's femine side. Will i bimble into the 'common room' at 'teabreak' and drop a handbag, giggle and walk out again. Will I ring up random numbers around the building and 'knob' the poor clueless victim on the other end. Will i try and found some dark corner to get an 'hour in it instead of on it' at lunchtime. Will I just aimlessly bimble around one floor of the building with a piece of paper containg gibberish pretending to be busy. Do I use this period to prepare myself for a career in civvy street(only 4 yrs away now). Or do I just use it to have a giggle at the expense of people who have no idea what a matelots sense of humour is really like, hmmmm. Any ideas.
